Nose

Old, spicy sherry. Mushy, ripe fruits. Some herbs. Little caramel. Some honey.

Taste

Sweet sherry. Very sweet. Caramel, biscuit, spicy oak, a hint of peat smoke. Sherry still dominant over the oak after all these years.

Finish

Long finish, very spicy oak. Milk chocolate with grapes and hazelnuts. Just a little driness, easily retraped by the sherry sweetness.

Comments

Beautiful! Very mature. Perfectly balanced. I like it a little better then the 30yo Glenfarclas.

Nose

schon beim eingießen steigt der Duft herrlich in die Nase, deutlich Sherry, dunkle Schokolade und Kirschen (erinnert mich an Mon Chéri), Johannisbeeren, Brombeeren, etwas Vanille, nach dem ersten Schluck ist ganz hinten etwas Rauch wahrnehmbar, sehr komplex und vielversprechend

Taste

kraftvoll, voluminös, Sherry, dunkle Schokolade, Kaffee, wieder dunkle und reife Früchte, leicht trocken und prickelnd auf der Zunge, die 43 vol% spürt man gar nicht

Finish

lang, leicht bitterlich/herbe Schokolade wird dann etwas zarter, man spürt den Sherry lange, auch ganz wenig Rauch ist spürbar

Comments

ein Spitzenmalt, super Preis/Leistungsverhältnis, das Aroma verspricht sehr viel und man bekommt bis zum letzten Tropfen noch mehr als man erwarten würde! Einfach ein MUSS! Wundervoll komplex von Anfang bis Ende und es gibt immer wieder neues zu entdecken

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Dark cocoa dominates the initial impression. Chocolate coated fruits, pineapple and rhubarb. 

Taste

It's really spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. Powerful delivery. Candied fruits, beautiful sweetness, very well balanced. Water brings more spices, pepper in particular.

Finish

Very dry finish with black pepper and dried apple slices.

Comments

Amazing! I just had one dram but will buy this one in a near future.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
