  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Sexy Session 1 (i): A selection of sexy lady labels that a friend sent, she's another collector of special labels and these were those that I was more interested in. Apart from the animal series or historical figures/mythical beasts, I'd have to know just how much will these girls influence the tasting.
    So thanks again, Samantha!

      So we have a sherry to start, deep and dark with scents of cashew nuts in winter. Bittergourd, pitted prunes, charcoal ash, cinder flame, caramelised onion, cracked green peppercorns...mhmmm spicy.
    • Taste

      Sweetness is not the first impression, but that rather tannic sourness that overpowers the sweetness. Dry on the start but gradually wets towards the mids. Strong cashew and pecan nuts, fresh barley water, sesame seeds tossed over a chili chicken garlic dish.

      Cardamom pods, cinnamon and various spices to boot. Reminds me of a sweet herbal briyani rice without the meat, as there are no traces of any smoke ham, stews etc.

      Dry and very sherry characterised. Quite normal and has nothing special on the end to take note of.

    This lady lured me, caught me and seduced me mercilessly - I do not regret anything, oh yes you would always be with me! With water dilution: Old sauna with spruce needle infusion, old discreet sweat, old hot granite stones
    • Nose
      intense sherrytönig, dark red fruits, onions, pineapple, old kitchen spice box, spice jars, black currants, subtle fruit acid, alcohol is well integrated
    • Taste
      first mouth-filling but mild, subtle sweetness, subtle oak bitterness towards the end becoming much drier, espresso notes, pecan nut and walnut, the strong alcohol is incomparably well integrated with enjoyment in cask strength
    • Finish
      mouth-filling medium to long, pickled green walnuts

    Dark spicy sherry, intense, not very complex, really nice

  5. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Sherry and spices all over. The finish is drying to the max. A little too much, would have been over 90 if it would have stopped at any point.

  7. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Looks like this a slightly later bottling of the cask that made up WhB's Kensington Wine Market bottling:

    Not so special on the nose, but better on the palate and with the finish - very good
    • Nose
      89 89
      Dried fruits, plums, figs, fresh rubber and tyres, hints of vinegar - not bad but typical profile of a Glenrothes 1997
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very very creamy and oily, mellow, punchy, dried fruits again, good sweetness, spices, cinnamon, cloves, also toffee, oak wood, dark chocolate, coffee, cream - better than the typical profile
    • Finish
      90 90
      More punchy, long, warm, fruity, little zesty
