Whisky Reviews for Old Perth Sherry Cask MMcK

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.10 points

  1. Falnor scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Too heavy on the alcohol and the harsh sherrynotes. Not focussed enough on time and slow maturation. Difficult to find something cheaper in this class, but i would go for a A'bunadh/ Glendronach CS etc.
    • Nose
      Huge attack of alcohol. Simple and lots of sharp edges. Some raisins, pudding and orange.
    • Taste
      Very peppery and a big wave of alcohol. Cake with raisins and chocolate. Chocolate biscuits and cinnamon buns. Cooked grains.
    • Finish
      Long on the peppers/ spices and some hot chocolate.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Equally solid alcohol, red fruit, raisins, dark chocolate. Also some spicy, cinnamon or nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Full, and surprisingly soft for the high Abv. Chocolate, coffee, red fruit, also some caramel now.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, spicy, chocolate, raisins, coffee.

  3. Cubey666 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    quite heavy and intens on the alcohol and cask, therefor quite shouty, could have used some more calm and elegance.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Just a good and decent tasty sherried whisky!
    • Nose
      87 87
      High in alcohol, but a clear sherry finish is noticable. Loads of red fruit and raisins.
      With water it get's to the more savory side of sherried whisky, which I like
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rather smooth! Sweet red fruits, candies with red berry taste. There is some freshness in the background.
      With water: More spices, yet the original taste is still there
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long length. Again quite some good sherry influences. Hints of leather and a fair share of red fruit.
      With water: Not much of a change here.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A blend of good and bad whisky.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Cherry, apple, minerals, fig and a whiff of caramel.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Cherry, schnapps, apple, caramel, smoke, mocha and cigar. Mature and immature notes combined. Water tears down the mature notes, not an improvement.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Mocha, apple, peat ash, cherry, caramel, fig liquor and grains.
