  1. GlenPiWi did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    There are actually 2 versions of this. The light coloured one was for Japanese market and the dark-coloured one ( sherry cask ) was for EU market ( Germany in fact ).
    They both have exactly the same label. Info comes from Acorn itself.
    Mine is lightcoloured and at the back has barcode 7700000009388

    91/100. Very good PE, with lots of sherry. Too bad the nose is a little closed the day I tasted it.
    • Nose
      lots of peat, chocolate, orange, candied orange, ashes, quite marine (shells, salt). Long enough to open, it lacks a little expressiveness.
    • Taste
      much better, powerful, well-integrated alcohol, always quite oily peat, iodine, lots of sherry, chocolate, orange, spices, pepper, tobacco. Pretty dry. Not really woody and little dried fruit here.
    • Finish
      very long, spicy, dry, still orange, barbecue smoke too.

    Considering the price, the bottler, the distillery, the age and cask type it is a little disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very good whisky, but don’t expect it to be magnificent. It is not.
    Definitely worth trying!
    • Nose

      The nose gives sweet expectations, tobacco, smoke, dryness, red tea, pepper, prunes, some peat, even honey and oranges.
    • Taste
      The taste is definitely more into tobacco, ashes, sourness, smoke, pepper, bitter taste, some leather, red tea, dryness and cigarette smoke. Don’t expect much of sweetness in mouth.
    • Finish
      Finish is rather long, evolving and filled with ashes, smoke, sourness, pepper, a little bit of sweetness and spices.
