  2. Othorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Delicious stuff! Port and Glendronach, because you can probably not do much wrong with me: mrgreen: that was truly a worthy barrel for a single cask! And in contrast to such short, wet post-maturity works nothing set up or artificial. A beautiful port Vollreifung completely to my liking!
    • Nose
      Spicy plum jam, nutmeg, vanilla, cigar tobacco, fresh mint, blackberries, forest honey, tree resin, nut chocolate, a slightly sour note towards soft red wine vinegar, a nice interplay of aromas and alcohol (at least 55.4%) no trace. Nice! with a little bit of water, the nuts are stronger and the sourish taste comes back, as well as the mint, but cherries are added.
    • Taste
      Hossa! Strong start! Spicy, peppery, drooling begins, here you notice the power, without the alcohol would attract attention, dark chocolate with nuts and plum jam, cherries and coffee, nutmeg, black pepper, creamy caramel, some honey but less sweet than the nose, You will notice something on tap, but everything is harmonious. With some water even better, the aromas remain, but the pepper is tamed and the overall mouthfeel becomes even more harmonious.
    • Finish
      Medium long, coffee, slightly dry, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, even the cherries stay long and an exciting hint of licorice complements the finish!

    A slight sour nose misleads as the palate explodes with sweet fruits and nice malt with oak spice.

  5. Ostap scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    In the aroma, just a little bit of whisky, it's very portable. Saturated, sweet, fruit and berry. The taste is more salty with the dominance of iris. Unusual and non-whisky. I liked it, although I do not think that he will cause the same emotions in the critics of the guilty endings / finishes. Because it's very non-canonical!
    • Nose
      Mineral, sweet pastry, fruit, tangible wine, sweet apples, jam from heavenly apples, alic, puffed, raspberry compote and teaspoon, mango, candy "Cherry in brandy", milk bream, port wine in all its beauty, anise, oak, milk chocolate, kiwi, vanilla, grapefruit, red currant, plum, honey notes. Aroma compote, juicy, even sticky!
    • Taste
      Plum, salted, iris, waffles, currants, chocolate, mineral and oily.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, plum, apple, currant, with tangled sourness, tea rose, salty iris. Long lasting enough.

  6. Numwierum scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A fine port whisky, which well presents these aromas on the nose, mouth and finish. Unfortunately, the flavors fight again and again against the not so well-integrated alcohol.

  7. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Cool sherry nose, ripe plum, alcoholized cherry, walnut
    The taste is first a wave of spices, then softens and envelops with fresh fruits, herbs
    The finish is very delicate, some spices, red wine, herbs

    Nice young drones

  8. nallacam scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Impresses with a creamy and full mouthfeel. The sweetness catches the 55% Alc. wonderful on. Complex, strong and balanced.
