  1. JoshNRW scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Glencairn glass
    Solid cask strength sherry whisky, but not very lasting or exciting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A simple sweet sherry board, complex for its age, no surprise, but well done.
      The percentages are well integrated, but clearly noticeable without stinging too much. Minimal spiciness behind the sweetness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very strong despite the water, but not bubbly. More spiciness and less sweetness on the palate than the nose. A little bitter remains.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium short and more sharp than the nose, but still in the frame.

  2. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    elegant and aromatic with dry sherry, raisins and fine wood / oak notes, hint of vanilla. Perfectly integrated alcohol.

    Taste:
    warm with onset, slightly oily, sweet-tart, dry fruit aromas, sherry, delicate tart oak notes. Walnuts, a hint of spicy.

    finish:
    slightly tart with delicate oak notes, warming, a little sweet with sherry and dried fruit, lingering for a long time, softly fading with delicate oak.

    Based on the info from one of the Shop-Staff this is a undisclosed Glenfarclas.

  5. dramspotter scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Blind mystery tasting.
    • Nose
      90 90
      hokey pokey, lemon, quite prickly, Russian fudge, quite a bit of caramel
    • Taste
      88 88
      delicate, that hokey pokey carries on with buttery notes and some spirit
    • Finish
      87 87
      just short of medium; it doesn't stick around as long as you would want; very clean continuation of creamy buttery notes

  6. c2abusus scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    Decent, fresh sherry bomb
    • Nose
      83 83
      Cake, biscuits, sherry, with water more sherry, Mon Cheri, some oak
    • Taste
      82 82
      Red cooked fruit, alcohol, praline, nut, dark chocolate, reminiscent of grandma plum brandy
    • Finish
      83 83
      fresh oak, quite dry and long

  7. pianoman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Round. Cake dough, vanilla sugar, fresh sawdust. Behind it yellow apples and light raisins. Green pears, some thyme. Apricots, marzipan, a hint of water-mint.
    • Taste
      Honey, nectarine, banana. Walnuts, almonds. Dark chocolate, grape seeds, a little peach.
