    Just under 90 Euro for a 10 year old? Yes, considering what you get for it. The 12er Macallan, for example, stood at 90 euros a year ago. Total plague against this ... The Glentauchers offers everything your heart desires. A clear buy recommendation from me.
    • Nose
      Definitely more mature and complex than the 8th TWC. The 2 years more you notice clearly! The 8er is a bit "sprittiger" in the nose, the 10er clearly set and mature. Something spicier and chocolatier. The green banana and the lychee can be clearly perceived. But above all lies the deep-dark sherry with its dark aromas: pickled raisins, sweet dates, plum compote, dark chocolate, oranges, kräutrig-earthy notes.
    • Taste
      Bäääm! ... push the 55%! Krasser than the 58.4% at 8er! Hallelujah! Dark sherry, dark fruits, pickled raisins, sweet dates, plum compote, dark chocolate, oranges, herbal-earthy notes and a very well-integrated portion of seasoning from the Hogshead barrel. Jep - exactly my thing!
    • Finish
      Long lasting, pleasant mouthfeel, nothing is burning. Sweetness on the cheeks, dryness at the tip of the tongue. The sweetness is still very present, but is slowly accompanied by the spiciness and delicate bitterness of the wood. Very well matched, nothing fits here. Wonderful! For "only" 10 years a great bottling! B

    A dark and intense sherry monster. A slight youthful partly metallic note can be denied, otherwise I have nothing to expose to this bottling. The full sherry drone at its best ...

    • Nose
      Wonderfully intense and radiant amber glitters in the glass, on the glass wall sticks an oily streak ... Creamy and sweet caramel rises in the nose, milk chocolate and raisins melt into a wonderfully creamy melange, the alcohol is harmoniously integrated. Overripe bananas dissolve from mandarins and a hint of juicy orange, slightly musty and musty old wooden floorboards, light Kellermuff a'la board shed with clay soil. Subtle mint and a hint of menthol come to light, spicy wood tones mingle with chocolate and dates. Meadow herbs and hints of tropical fruits are minimal, the multi-layered nose leaves a lot of room for an interplay of different flavors and fragrances.
    • Taste
      Powerful and slightly astringent tart fruit flavors flow over the tongue, it reminds me a little of beet and cough syrup. Pepper and brine stick to the tongue and warm the tip of the tongue. The sharpness increases noticeably, gunpowder and black pepper now heat the tongue and the palate properly. Sweet fruit aromas and dark caramel dissolve from the dominant and sharp note, bittersweet and espresso play together. Slightly tart wood elements end in a touch of furniture polish and glaze. Spicy, the taste goes into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Peppery pungency and hints of furniture polish are still sticking to the tongue, cozy warmth floods the palate while tart and dark wood elements in espresso and dark chocolate end. Sweet fruit notes sparkle from time to time through the tart wood notes, long remains the voluminous resonance in memory.

    The thing is really different. You expect a full Sherrybreitseite and you get that in part. However, you also get this wonderful banana note in the nose and the slight liveliness on the tongue, which is quite unusual for such dark things.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, raisins, slightly wet tobacco, banana milk, wet and slightly moldy wood, licorice, now I got it: banana split - that's exactly how it smells, the sherry notes are there, but the banana note determines the foreground, with time, a dark nuttiness is added
    • Taste
      Strong onset, lots of chocolate, again with this banana note, directly creamy, slightly sparkling effervescent powder, oak flavoring without bitterness
    • Finish
      Again dominant chocolate and a very catchy spice, very light acidity, long-lasting heat

    [Blind tasting notes]

    Guess: Either pretty old or extremely generously sherried – I can't quite tell. Glendronach, Glenrothes? No idea. Super enjoyable though.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Shy initially. Develops on leather, blueberry jam, dark savory sauces, and musty dunnage / cellar aromas. A sherry bomb done right.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very nice old Oloroso notes. Sweet, fruity, deeply sherried and obviously well-matured.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Coffee, chocolate, fig jam, and a streak of charcoal.

    Got a bottle of this juice in my hand now to reconfirm my impressions over the years its been open. Oh boy, clearly overrated b/c of color. Does not lack sherry or power, but clearly finesse and balance. Good one to impress newbies but tiresome to the experienced kind imho. In hindsight a small mistake to buy a bottle, should've known. Well, that's life I guess... :-)

    Somewhat dark and spicy on the nose, coffee with milk, rather closed and hesitant. Then in the mouth full tart, sweet sherry broadside. An intense young sherrymalt that brings together pepper, sweetness, sherry and tart oak. Delicious, but also a bit interchangeable.

    Even darker soup xD then comes the "dark black" SV edradour ...

    Neat sherry in the nose, what a surprise xD. Soft, you don't recognize the 10 years, I would have blindly guessed more. The first time I tried it right after pouring it out there was some smoke, now 10 minutes later it's gone.
    Tart and spicy than the linkwood, more wood, muff and chocolate. Heavy and sticky.
    The taste is the same and the finish, too, typical sherry and just delicious.
    At the very end a little pepper and tickle the edge of the tongue.

    N-86, T-86, F-85, total of 86 points

    From a blind tasting:

    The color is clearly an eye-catcher. :)
    A young, strong, partly impetuous sherry whisky, high percentage in the onset, with partly stronger peppery finish. I do not like it as good as yesterday's, because it has metallic notes that get stronger in the finish. It could be one of the many Highland distillates. Around the 10 years with a good 55% alcohol content.

  10. Dottore scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    BLIND TASTING
    N: Aged, slightly musty sherry, followed by minimal smoke, cocoa, walnut, cinnamon, caramel, grapefruit
    M: Creamy-sweet, vanilla, tobacco and leather notes, dark fruits, a whole spice cupboard flows from throat and mouth through my nose while exhaling. Fantastic
    A: long, sweet, old sherry, slightly musty,
    Conclusion: Great matured sherry whisky. Definitely older, or do my senses play a trick on me? 91 points
    Tip: I'm guessing an older Bunnahabhain, let's say about 27 years. Sherry Butt, 49%. From the flavor profile absolutely in my booty scheme!

    EDIT: wow, just 10 years, fantastic whisky and great PLV
