  3. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Honest PX cask whisky, little Glenlivet in this one but a true whisky nonetheless.
    • Nose
      PX cask has taken the main stage. Big and powerful sherry notes, it’s on berries and dried fruits to begin with. Some oak notes, more new oak than old. With time the alcohol dies down and reveals delicate notes of oranges and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      A little cask funk, still very PX with little distillery character. Very strong with lots of spice, paprika. Fiery berries, some cherry drops and other boiled sweets.
    • Finish
      Burnt wood, little dark chocolate and lasting spice. Long finish

    Notes from the SMWS website: https://www.smws.com/whisky/devilishly-opulent

    Initial price in April 2018: 67,50 GBP

    "On opening the doors to the dunnage warehouse we were greeted by the familiar waft of old oak mixed with strong spirit and the smell of clean earth that was reminiscent of strolling in a pine forest in springtime. Sweet notes were in abundance as caramel wafers became pink wafer biscuits with sticky warm fudge. Soft leather and sweet tobacco merged with the rich fruitiness of figs, dates and raisons lavishly coated with opulent dark chocolate. Then heaps of spice appeared with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger marmalade on rye bread that was joined on the palate buy chewy toffee. The prolonged finish was sweet and fruity and now with the presence of herbal notes and scented wood. After spending 8 years in an ex-oloroso butt this was transferred to a 1st fill pedro ximinez butt for the remainder of its maturation."
