Whisky Reviews for Galahad 2009 Wh

  1. Harzermaltine did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Colour: In the glass a wonderful mahogany. Not particularly oily, he probably just lacks the age. Nose: the nose is really awesome. Fruit. Fruit and again fruit. I can save myself the vitamins today, I think. Ripe juicy strawberries, a little crushed, as they are processed into jam. Then freshly made grape juice. Then someone cuts up juicy marzipan. This is given immediately to cooked plums. The alcohol is always immediately superimposed again by the fruit. If I hold the glass at an angle and look into the glass from above, it has the color of an aperol. Taste: Before a small sip of water. 65.1% will not be so brutal then. And then he is there. Creamy, I think.dfrom fruit again. Not quite as complex. Here rather a composition of rhubarb and strawberry. A slight bitter note to the fruity sweet strawberry. In the second sip it is rather a bit woody .. no rhubarb. The creamy is probably a vanilla cream. Delicious. But I already knew that.

  2. Hemdl scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Really nice and strong port nose, on the palate after the first sip surprisingly tasty and quite pleasant. The finish is then not quite as my taste, here is next to the missing age then the alcohol quite noticeable. Would I buy that? Rather not. 8 years and 70 € are not for a single malt not necessarily a "snapper", for a "blended malt" but even less, no matter how one stands. If you can not be fooled by this, you get a really solid to good drinking whiskey in cask strength, which can come up with a great Portaroma.
    • Nose
      As the reddish shimmering color suggests, it hits me directly against a strong port. Strong red fruits, especially grapes and a few plums, later a few of these in alcohol pickled cherries, which one likes to find on desserts. Sweetish, yet with a slightly dry character, which I ascribe to the noticeable but not particularly disturbing alcohol that can not hide completely. Well, at 65.1% Vol. That would be an absolute peculiarity.
    • Taste
      As expected, a direct and strong start. Here, too, sweet, red fruits and a subtle oak note. As if someone had put a Ritter Sport grape rum on an old oak board and let it melt there. Here for my taste a little less sweet and sweet than in the nose, after a short stay in the mouth then pushes the oak a little more forward and pushes the previously dominant fruit notes somewhat in the background.
    • Finish
      The alcohol pushes a little here, the fruits flash briefly. Then again the oak notes, which leave a slightly dry mouthfeel. In the place for me also a tick too much alcohol, which flashes something.
