    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring full-bodied and multi-layered aromas flow out of my glass. The high-potency alcohol content (53.4%) is very well integrated and hardly noticeable. Rumrosines, plums, dates and figs provide an intense sherry board. Leather, echoes of Christmas spices and a little oak complete the voluminous aroma. In the background glimmer some matches, which give the smoker a special touch. After waiting more than 20 minutes, successively lighter fruits (oranges, a few ripe raspberries) and sweet aromas, which remind me of hard caramelized popcorn, open up.
    • Taste
      A wolf in sheep's clothing! The first sip pushes really neat. The mouthfeel is very oily, almost buttery, very full-bodied and already noticeably dry. On the palate, an amazing fireworks are kindled in two respects: Strong sherry goddesses mingle with the matches and fireworks, which now come to life more intensely in terms of taste. Cooked fruits, dates, figs, leather, spices and oak roll over the palate. With a few drops of water, the malt boosts its fruitiness without noticeably losing its power. Juicy oranges, burnt caramel and popcorn follow. On the palate continues to reign a pleasant dryness.
    • Finish
      Long, sherrylastig with sulfur. The intense sherry notes, along with the fireworks, vigorously rear up at the finish line and slowly fade away. Burnt caramel, spices and clear hints of oak wood notes join. Also on the finish remains a noticeable, always pleasant, dryness on the palate.

    Incredibly interesting and diverse, but not for the faint of heart. Respect, for the adolescent age.
    • Nose
      Pure variety. Starting with dark fruits such as figs, plums and ripe strawberries, sugar, caramel and popcorn / crunchy nut in the background, then after some time, chalky notes, chalk, ginger and balsamic add, and later lighter fruits, such as oranges.
    • Taste
      What's this? The mouth fills with the fruit flavors described above, but then run sulfurous Zündhölzerköpfe over the tongue. Unexpected and amazing. Sweet and dry. With water, the fruits are highlighted more clearly, the sulfur is gentler, more popcorn. Dark Campino candies.
    • Finish
      The sulfur, light wood notes and sweet caramel are still pleasant to drink. At times, a slightly sour note joins.

  5. malt70 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    I have not had such a sulfur note yet. https://fosm.de/tasting-3x-a-dream-of-scotland/
    • Nose
      Strong Sherrynoten. At first I have a bit of sulfur in my nose, but it fades with time and the strong raisins, plums and dates come to light. Lots of leather flatters between the sweet flavors.
    • Taste
      I think I suck on a match. The Sherrynoten are very obscure, were in the beginning very briefly and then kawumm .... explodes a firecracker in my mouth. The alcohol is beautifully integrated and rather reserved, but provides a beautiful oiliness.
    • Finish
      In the finish leather and the sweet fruits come back again.

  7. Lorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great. I think he is really great. He really impressed me and also surprised me a lot. 89 points.
    • Nose
      Vicious, sulphurous aromas come first. Vergorene, sweet cherry, cider. It is reminiscent of New Year's Eve, the smoke of burned guns, killed councilors and sacked guns. There is also a dark chocolate, accompanied by a light alcoholic bite. Even the nutty side of the Olosoro barrel will not be long in coming. Almonds and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Full and sweet, the whisky first plays around the tongue. Soon, a pleasant tingling begins and a dark fruit is discharged. The cherries are full, as in the nose they are already more than overripe. New Year's Eve is on the palate immediately back. Maggi reminiscent spices and the dark chocolate, which is there, but leaves no bitterness, round off the palate.
    • Finish
      Long, chopped cherries and chocolate.

    tastes like mixed from the chemistry kit. Inedible for me personally ..

    [Well, actually, I would have to rate this conclusion significantly worse. But if nobody exploits the entire rating range of 0-100, I will not do that either. Thus, my rather divergent opinion, hopefully, still has a raison d'être among the other, mostly positive reviews.]
    • Nose
      sweet cocktail cherries, almonds, some coffee and leather, the first impressions seem concentrated and chemical
    • Taste
      a little more coffee, otherwise the same flavors
    • Finish
      Short to medium.
