A heavily sherried undisclosed whisky, bottled at good strength and good age. Jointly released by a number of independent retailers in Taiwan, with different labels. Same excellent liquid.

91 points on Whiskyfun: "Mouth (neat): love this monster of a cherry-laden sherry monster. Cherries are often to be found in sherried malts, but this one takes the (cherried) biscuit. Of course there are also raisins, some marmalade, cake, roasted nuts, and chocolate. But cherries are kings here. With water: woosh, the cherries are gone, leaving room for some perfect bitter oranges and chocolate-covered raisins. Raisins macerated in rum, naturally. Finish: long, chocolaty and coffeeish, but both raisins and morello cherries aren’t far away. Comments: extremely good, reminding me of many an Italian heavily sherried Speysider from the old days. Samaroli, Intertrade/Nadi Fiori… I’m sure you know what and whom I mean."
