Thoughts: Aged stated, cask strength, NCF, no coloring, sherry monster from a distillery with decent malt when they don’t water it to oblivion for under $100? I’ll buy that all day long, and I shoulda bought two. Closer to the Macallan and Dalmore style of sherry than Aberlour or Glenfarclas, and is a great improvement on the Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso.

Score: 88 out of 100
