  1. helmutgw scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Way too alcoholic.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Hm, to me the sherry is quite rumy. The only other time that I remember having had a similar rumy taste was a Blair Athol by DoD https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/5932/blair-athol-1995-dod

    So what kind of sherry cask was it? Paolo Cortado, maybe...?Quite crude. The rumy side is the main feature. The finish is quite bland and just sweet and easy to forget.

    Of the rat pack of three that they bottled late 2017, this comes in third. Actually the bourbon cask https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/104065/bruichladdich-2007  comes in first, closely followed by Rivesaltes cask 1309 of 2007.

    Nice sweet and generous nose. Reflected in the taste again. A bit metallic at the back, but still very good. Fine single cask laddie!
