  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Rather creamy, shimmering, with dried fruits. Slightly maritime, it is rather cool and dynamic. Blindly, I would have bet on a younger malt
    • Taste
      Round, with minimal influence of sherry though. Spices hang a little on the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      I find the driftwood of Jura with fruits. Slight lack of balance.

      Enthusiasm 3/5
      Whisky n ° 1924

      Nice, fruity, red berries, light caramel, some candy.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Very smooth, too smooth. Bourbon dominates.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fades away quite quickly. I don't think the age shows in this one. Some liquorice in the end.

    Line Up of 23/03/19 to the blind. 2/11
    • Nose
      Dried fruits, creamy and buttery sherry ... which is also caramel.
    • Taste
      Diluted, caramelized and vegetal.
    • Finish
      Short on caramel and vanilla.

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Colour,
      pink gold

      Nose:
      The first thing that comes to mind is a load of solvent and a smell of wood. Then something like salted dried fruit. Plums, figs, dark grapes and gingerbread spice.
      With some time in the glass the colleague becomes tart, spicy and dry. More herbs. Has something of sage tea. Freshly oiled oak table. The dried fruits are now in the back of the line. Lightly roasted malt and a trace menthol I still find.
    • Taste
      Herber, but soft start. Then neat pepper and cold tea. A salty and musty taste comes along. Significantly more herbs. I still have a taste for it ..... so I imagine it tastes good when you lick a freshly greased leather belt. Add to that fermented fruit. Sour apple and plum for me the clearest.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First neat pepper and a pinch of salt. Then stay bitter herbs and lightly roasted malt. In the end, cocoa and hazelnut stick.

    The PX and the age did not leave too much impression on it, but it wasn't bad anyway.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Floral. Forest fruits, citruses, caramel and spices.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sherry, spicy oak, fruits and Haribo.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, sweet, spicy.

  8. maltaholic scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    He is different.
    Pretty sweet, almost like gummy bears.
    In the taste but spicy and strong.

    It's perfectly alright.
