Whisky Reviews for Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Sherry Cask Matured

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.88 points

  1. KingKutte_4.0 scored this whisky 82 points Member Junior

    Smells fruity and smells and tastes like metal that fits perfect to me and my selfmade heavy metal kuttegang
    when we r king at "Rock am Ring"

    \ , , / first choice airguitarhero energydrink \ , , /

    I bet one of my best Lara Croft collectables on that

    its not really good stuff, but its cheap and its..
    BrÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖm

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I would never buy, as long as there are so many delicious alternatives - that was nothing
    • Nose
      75 75
      my first nose is marmalade red fruit but clearly metallic young without alcoholic stinging.

      The nose gets a bit better with time - but never really tasty. I always have neutral bittering and metal, machine oil and cheap smelly plastic in my nose.
      In addition a cheap sweet sticky Sherrynase. That can be a Glendronach 12 (until 2015) or a Bunnahabhain 12 much better at the same course
    • Taste
      80 80
      On the palate it looks thin, then it warms and shows mint at the same time - the alcohol is moderately well integrated for 44% but ok.
      It is sweet with light nut flavors, there is also a fruity acidity but the sherry fruits are well hidden - a few raisins when chewing and orange - again slightly bitter - drinkable but not tasty
    • Finish
      80 80
      short, warm, ginger, raisins, hazelnuts, musty, spicy - long pepper and wax

  3. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    Smell: strong sherry nose, red cooked fruit, a little chocolate, orange, vanilla, plum jam

    Taste: red berries, distinct oranges and orange peel (possibly also orange marmalade), quite sweet, a little young as the alcohol is noticeable despite the 44.2%, but not unpleasant

    Finish: slightly astringent and a really slight bitterness (which I can not classify)

    I bought the bottle because the frame data for the price seemed pretty neat. If you are looking for a sherry bomb for everyday enjoyment then here are the 34 mice are well laid out. A few percent and an age (or a little more age) would have been nice. There may be more NAS whiskeys like this one here.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He is already relatively young and has somehow so artificial notes in it. He is not terrible now. But again I do not need it in the glass.

  6. Classic scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice sherry whiskey, a little too dry, I miss a little the sweetness
    • Nose
      80 80
      rather restrained, dark fruits like a wild berry jam, slightly spicy, a little honey
    • Taste
      83 83
      dark fruits, dry sherry, slightly oily, a hint of honey and vanilla, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      82 82
      medium long, spicy, the dark chocolate is more for strong espresso, walnut

  7. Lumpowitz scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Pleasant and round sherry whiskey. Relatively simple, but very good value for money.
    • Nose
      a lot of red fruit, fruity sherry, strawberry limes, a hint of vanilla. Nice, but not so complex.
    • Taste
      Silky mouthfeel, fruity with full sherry notes.
    • Finish
      Mitellang, sherry-tönig.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    Seems to be mainly young Glenrothes. I also categorise Dalmore and Macallan in this style, but Glenrothes is most likely here. This is a style that generally isn't regarded very highly, so I'm surprised by the high scores for this one. I suppose the scceptable price plays a role there.
    • Nose
      Cherry, malt, orange, almond, fig and honey.
    • Taste
      Malt, cherry, caramel, liquorice and mocha.
    • Finish
      Cherry, bread, caramel, orange, apple and chestnut.

  10. Casketje scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Lots of sherry on the nose but what stands out most to me is the dark chocolate on the palate. Really lovely, especially for less than 35 euros a bottle.
