  1. James.Braddock scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    For under 50 € an outstanding whisky, which earns 89 points absolutely. Not these modern young UA bottlings from the wet sherry keg that are just pushing and otherwise rather one-dimensional, but a fine, complex sherry whisky that I'm sure I'm going to deal with more often.
    • Nose
      Chocolate and honey, subtle sherry and Christmas spices
    • Taste
      Always chocolaty basic tone, with honey and orange notes, with wax and coffee hints. The Glenlivettypische flowery sometimes seems through.
    • Finish
      Here comes the oak and the milk chocolate goes into bitter chocolate. The finish is medium long

    This one leaves me at a loss. On the one hand, it has a distinctly strong sherry profile with beautiful fruit aromas and chocolate. On the other hand there is a sticky sweetness that I find somehow off-putting. You almost forget that you have whisky in your glass. Depending on the form of the day, one or the other sensation dominates more. Apparently the barrels were very active, if not to say "wet".

    But even if it looks a bit young and unbalanced, it has a good price-performance ratio.
    • Nose
      Sherry! Sweet grape juice and clear Oloroso / PX notes. Walnuts. In addition, a mixture of light and dark fruits, marzipan, creme brulee and a little black pepper. A roomy, oily mouthfeel contrasts with a gruff alcohol note. With water, the PX note and sweetness become more dominant, plus a little milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sweet, sherry, vanilla milk or pudding, cherry liqueur, milk chocolate. At some point the distillery profile with the apples and pears will also be recognizable. Slightly sticky in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium length and mild. Still sweet and fruity. In the end there is dryness. The alcohol remains slightly gruff until the end.

    This is snacking from an excellent price-quality ratio!
    • Nose
      Raisin, plum, raspberry, mandarin. Red fruit salad.
    • Taste
      Earthy and oily, then a transition to plum, fig, and blackberry. A bit of citrus in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying. Sweet plum and blackberry remain. Delicious!

    ## tasted in parallel with batch no. 3 ##

    A classic sherry malt but without much fruitiness. Compared to the batch 3, he has the slightly smoother nose.
    • Nose
      classic nutty sherry, without the slightly sour note of Batch 3, raisins, leather laces, loamy soil
    • Taste
      oily, caramel cream sweets, Storck giants, dry
    • Finish
      Now also woody, medium long

  8. DerDennis! scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very complex for his age. Sweetness and spice are well balanced. Long and pleasant finish. Dangerously tasty.

  9. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somehow I do not like it that much. This artificial fruit and sweetness bothers me. I'm not sad that I did not buy a big bottle from it.
    • Nose
      There is of course salty sherry in there. But not so dark fruit. Kirsch. Haribo Happy Cherries. Generally such an artificial wine gum note that I do not like. Overripe honeydew melon. Banana bread. Subtle wood notes. Tree sap.
    • Taste
      At first, a lot of sweetness. Orange blossom honey. Red marshmallows. Apricots. Fortunately, in the mouth, this artificial note is not as strong anymore. But then the oak comes and rages through the mouth. That came as a surprise. It tingles. Pepper.
    • Finish
      The sharpness remains something. Cappuccino. Dark chocolate with orange pieces. Burnt caramel. Oak spice.

    For only 10 years of age, this is a great vatting. This dram is complex enough to warrant revisits often and works in any situation. Perfect strength to sip it neat; a tea-spoon of water does not take away any crucial flavors or aromas. The initial price on release was an absolute steal.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Classic PX nose – winey sweetness, grape juice, orange marmalade, and buttery toffee. Perfumed oak, clay, dried figs, and incense. This nose reminds me of Glendronach 1995 Vintage, due to overt notes of buttered toffee and oranges.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Bold arrival with lots of oak, eucalyptus, and toffee. The oak is present everywhere, yet does not translate into bitterness – Quercus Alba at work I reckon. Thick custard cream with orange oil and caramelized dates.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium. Mint chocolate, Werther’s Original, and condensed sweet oak syrup.
