  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    I have tasted barrels 654 and 655 in parallel and it's amazing how different the two are. Here you will find the classic sherry board in contrast to the quite fresh flavors trumpeting barrel 654th I am generally a big fan of such sherry boards, especially when the sherry and the alcohol are so well involved as here. So I would easily favor 655 over 654.
    • Nose
      My first association is the fruity raspberry-flavored fruit jug, the mousse disappears quickly, a touch of mint, here raisins, some acidity, dark chocolate, and then the oak beats, old leather, a nice ripe spice, some cocoa, the alcohol is wonderfully integrated, no trace of cask strength, if you are looking for it you can find the bubbly freshness again, but rather in the edge of the glass, a really nice sherry board,
    • Taste
      Full of sherry, intense and full-bodied, raisins, dark notes, oak, espresso, tobacco, some licorice, gets really nice dry, bittersweet, the full program, what one expects from such an old sherry barrel, wonderfully supple in the mouth, is great Drink without water, from sip to sip the liquorice comes through stronger, always spicy
    • Finish
      it sticks properly on the palate, still a full load of raisins in combination with the mouth-filling oak spice, which brings with it a dryness as a counterpart to the sweet raisins

    It looks like Whisky-Tester decided to give bad notes to all great bottles on this website o_O
