  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    What a sherry board! Sweet PX aromas, dark berries, an extremely dominant cherry and the fabulously creamy and oily mouthfeel delight the resin of every sherry lover and are a balm for every sherry. Just awesome and a hammer! Without ifs and buts, 90 points (rather more)!

    • Nose
      Rusty and clear amber, the malt shines in the glass. In the upper part of the Premium Snifter an oily and syrupy streak has formed, from which a multitude of small droplets dissolves. Dark dried berries and grapes stand out voluminously from the glass, dry tobacco and creamy leather mix with the extreme sherry aromas. Velvety vineyard peach and ripe apricot mingles with old orange. The alcohol is initially very present, but it evaporates over time. Sweet vanilla and light caramel follow the dark fruit, sour cherries gradually dissolve and mix with hazelnuts and walnuts to form a sweet and fruity blend. The cherries become more intense, milk chocolate gives off its sweet and creamy aroma. Sweet PX aromas and a subtle walnut aroma are currently provoking my saliva.
    • Taste
      Sour cherries and strong wood tones strike the first mouthful mercilessly on the tongue and on the palate. Fiery sharpness burns in the entire mouth, my saliva flows in streams through the mouth. Old tobacco and nut chocolate end in a spicy woody note, dark raisins and dates swim creamy and oily in the mouth. An idiosyncratic spice mixture spreads on the palate, old leather and tobacco rise bitter and bitter from the oily and extremely creamy fruit mixture. A pinch of pepper covers the tongue and burns discreetly between the lips. Slightly rancid and sweet wood elements float in the creamy saliva, sweet and dried berries and peach pieces are slowly whitewashed by walnut flavors.
    • Finish
      Creamy and with a hint of butter, the extreme PX aromas in combination with leather and tobacco rest on the palate. Tart and slightly bitter oak flavors are again relatively quickly dulled by the creamy and sweet aroma of the afterglow. Dark berries and grapes exude an extremely stimulating and tasty aroma with a very dominant cherry in the foreground. Hopefully this voluminous and intense echo will last forever!

    BLIND TASTING

    N: Walnut flavors pour out of the vial. In the glass Amarena cherry ice, leather, tobacco, sherry without end, think PX.
    G: brutal alcohol load, sorry, it's not drinkable without water for me, and I pack almost every cask strength. The entrance skin me out of the pines .... Fat sherry cargo. Nut aromas, sugar candy, astringent on the palate, fermented notes throughout the mouth
    A: Spicy-sweet FIRE ... pleasantly spicy with water and only slight bitterness.

    Conclusion: Beautiful sherry bomb, but I was a little too alcoholic, even after proper addition of water. Tip: Benriach, PX barrel about 62%

    Nose: Dark sherry tones, fermented plum pure, plum jam, Germknödel, my face like delicious! Salivation alone from the smell. Somewhat overripe dark sweet cherries.
    Mouth: And it goes on just as well. Plum, sweet blackberry, cake, everything is proven.
    Finish: Sufficiently long and tasty. Hardly oak, but not youthful.

  5. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    an absolute hammer part who wants to have his time in the glass and the water very well tolerates it can sometimes be a few more drops (quiet experimenting a bit) The cherry notes really impressed me
    • Nose
      fresh leather strong and intense as if it had just been dyed, heavy sweetness, dark cherries, walnut with: slightly chemical something like nail polish, oak
    • Taste
      heavy, strong and oily on the palate
      neat oak, sweetness, raisins, bitter with: red berries, again delicious cherries, raisins, the oak is more in the background
    • Finish
      very long, the leather comes back but now this pleasant touch as from a leather binding with: very astringent, oak, a good dose of bitterness
