  1. schero scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Blindtasting Tip: Sherry Keg, 18 years, 43% Resolution: I would not have touched on a smoky one. Great whisky!
    • Nose
      Thick sherry aromas, raisins, prunes, furniture polish, thick chocolate sauce, damp wood, wet tobacco, cocoa
    • Taste
      Beautiful smooth start with a lot of sherry and some oak, chocolate, raisins, very creamy, slightly peppery on the tip of the tongue, nice and pleasant warmth in the mouth
    • Finish
      Great chocolate finish, barely bitterness, raisins, beautiful spice, long finish

  3. alectron scored this whisky 77 points Specialist

    Interesting, but rather disgusting. = ~65 points

    After some contact with air (+30 mins) the wood taste becomes less 'rotten' and the sulphuric notes integrate better into the sweeter notes that are now coming through (Butter Scotch/Fudge, Gooseberry ?, mint ?), but some of the sulphuric tar & bitumen are still there, which I simply don't find pleasant.
    Dark brown/black.
    Edit - I'd love to hear/read what people who rated it around 90 have to say about this! I just looked at some other tasting notes that describe this as tasting like 'old motor oil', which somewhat fits... although for them it was a positive attribute, whereas for me it would be negative.

    Edit: Funny one this is indeed. Generally the above is still true, but, on 2 occasions, I actually liked this, which was always in very heavy sherry whisky tastings, it seems for me the palate has to adjust to a bit of sulphur before for this to be not overly dirty, tar-y & sulphured.
    • Nose
      1st - tarred cloth/textiles +, rotten wood +, heavy sherry o, sulphur/matches o, leather -. Later (after +30 mins in glass) - dried plums, wood less 'rotten', rosemary ?,
    • Taste
      more tar/bitumen, rotten wood, some raisins in the background. Later (after +30 mins in glass) - Butter Scotch/Fudge, Gooseberry ?, mint ?
    • Finish
      tar/bitumen turning into smoke and some bitter notes come up.
      Later (after +30 mins in glass) - most of the bitter notes have turned sweet, wood a lot more pleasant. Tar & bitumen less upfront but still there.
