90 Points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
95 Points Wine Enthusiast (Superb/Highly Recommended) - *Best Buy* Amber/harvest-gold hue. The nose opens up after a couple of minutes of air contact with subtle notes of bittersweet chocolate, dark toffee and bacon fat; further aeration adds nuances of heather and marzipan—a compellingly harmonious bouquet. The palate entry is marked by sweet Sherry-like tastes; the mid palate offers chewy flavors of malt, light peat, light oak, pepper, and toffee. The aftertaste is medium long, creamy, and may be likened to oloroso Sherry. One of the best values in all of whisky.
