This is amazing. The sherry and slight smoke note that gives way to a warm honeycomb sweetness.

Very unique. The wine finish adds nice touch. An inescapable bandaid note. Quality dram with a unique character.

Smooth Rye and I usually don’t like rye

Incredible! Before or after dinner, it’s always great. The sherry compliments the potent flavor of the rye without overpowering it with sweetness. Another great one from James E Pepper!

Janine,
Meh. Very strong alcohol right up front with just a little sweetness at the end. Cant drink it straight. Need to try in a cocktail.

Harsh but the sherry finish is quite nice if you're up for the bite on the front end.

Just ok.

Great for after diners I gave a 9. Definitely not a mixer.

Jon,
Was pleasantly surprised at the flavor of this. Had a slight pepper taste that offset the sherry flavor quite nicely. Flavor profile was spot on

Super sweet and spicy, The sherry shines through making it a great after dinner drink.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
I agree with reviews that said there's too much Sherry in this one. I was prepared for it to be a decent bottle but not something I would buy again. Then I made an old-fashioned with it and it totally blew me away. It was probably the best old fashioned I've ever made. Normally, I wouldn't use something at this price point as a mixer. However, for this one, I will buy it again just for that.

Makes a great after-dinner brandy alternative.

My palate picks up such overwhelming sherry that, in my opinion, overshadows all others and makes it unenjoyable. Gave it a 3 just for being creative.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Ya it’s really tasty. Smooth and lots of flavors. I’d think even not whiskey drinkers would enjoy this one. Good in most sazeracs or manahattans also.
 
Jon
Jon,
Spicy! I like it. Great for sazaracs.

Made a mean old fashioned with this. Was hoping for a bite more spice. However, was excellent flavor.
