  • Excerpt: They could counteract some of that by releasing the Uuahouua Sherry Wood Single Malt at no less than 46% and being non-chill filtered. A young whisky like this would benefit greatly from having less water in it and retaining all of its oils.

  • Excerpt: The finish is long, but subtle with gentle touches of cooked fruits and mild spices, along with a sudden and surprising burst of licorice. Complex and interesting.

  • Publication: Whisky Advocate
  • Excerpt: Too bad the flavors are profoundly bitter and minty, producing an expression on this reviewer’s face like a flinching child reluctantly ingesting an unwelcome spoonful of medicine. More palatable and fruity as it dilutes, some spearmint returns on the finish, but it was game over by then.

  • Excerpt: It feels younger and a lot of the other notes like sherry, vanilla and cinnamon get crushed under the watery honey.

  • Intro:

    I'll be completely honest, this bottle was an impulse buy. I was out looking for a good sherry bomb (ended up with a bottle of ABunadh at the time this trip happened) and while I was poking around the scotch section, an employee came over and asked what I was interested in. He suggested this bottle, and for a mere $30, I thought, why not. 7 years in sherry didn't seem so awful and I was having guests that weekend so I knew if it was lacking, I'd have plenty of guinea pigs, er, I mean guests to pawn it off on. This one is distilled in Austria.

  • Nose:

    Honey and grain with a touch of sherry sweetness

  • Taste:

    Very thin mouthfeel with a lot of honey and ethanol. It feels younger and a lot of the other notes like sherry, vanilla and cinnamon get crushed under the watery honey.

  • Finish:

    Short, not overly harsh, but very one dimensional.

  • Overall:

    It's not great and it's not terrible but this one certainly lacks a lot of dimensionality and complexity. It's very low ABV and general lack of character make it hard to suggest, even at the price point.
