Claudio + Cats gave this whisky 88 points

Von dem hatte ich einige Flaschen. nun nur noch eine offen. Der Sherry-Geschmack ist deutlich, nicht viel anders, als der 2013er. Etwas dunkler. Doch zum Yamazaki 25 sind es Welten. Ich kann von diesem Whisky 3cl-Simpels anbieten für 114 Schw. Franken. Habe haber nicht mehr viele. Der Flaschenpreis ist heutzutage sehr hoch.

Auf Neudeutsch: Wolle brobire das, gebe 3cl Tram, nix gunstig, abr hat. Kann saufe das kleine Pulle kome mit post. Dransport mus auch bezale logisch. Schmekke egal 2013 fast, nur mer schwarz. Wolle habe, schreibe mirr.

Yamazaki ‘Sherry Cask 2009’ (48%, OB) Three stars and a half Yes, the ancestor of those insane newer batches that are fetching very high prices at auctions. Apparently, this very ‘2009’ now goes for around €1,800 a bottle. No age statements and one mad world. Colour: dark red amber. Nose: lets admit that this is pretty lovely, with a bag of dried fruits and marmalades, many raisins, and a blend of various tobaccos and precious woods, all that covered with touches of menthol and liquorice. Perhaps a little cellulosic varnish. Ultra-classic, a kind of polished, less ‘rustic’ Glenfarclas. Whiffs of old wine cellar. Honestly, this is a beautiful nose, a kind of JS Bach of the whisky world. Mouth: starts with marmalade on burnt cake, goes on with wheelbarrows of dried dates, keeps going on with notes of ruby Port, cherry liqueur and even Amarone, and gets then very raisiny. Corinths. Once again it’s highly polished, and at times you’d think you’re having some old oloroso ‘dulce’. The strength is perfect. Finish: long, rather tobacco-ish now, that is to say a little drier. Some cherry-flavoured marzipan in the aftertaste. Comments: what it is, is extremely good. What it’s not is moving and subtle. Or as they say in Scotland, ‘good not great’. Some oak is feeling a bit, as in many Japanese whiskies. I had tasted it at the MM Awards 2009 – 100% blind of course – didn’t write notes, but went for 83 points. I’ll be a little more generous this time, but remember this is no blind tasting. Probably one of the worst Q/P ratios out there ;-). SGP:651 - 84 points.

Brown sherry
Nose

Wahnsinnig viel Sherry! Trockenfruechte und Weihnachtsgewuerze. Dazu kommt Butter und Schokolade.
Mit ein wenig H2O kommt ne Note die mich an Sojasoße erinnert (kommt die Assoziation durch die Herkunft?!? Wer weiß... ;-)

Taste

Auch hier wahnsinnig viel Sherry mit Zartbitterschokolade mit weihnachtlichen Noten von Zimt und Kardamon. Intensiv und wuerzig.
Mit H20 wird der fruchtige Destilleriecharakter deutlicher.

Finish

Sehr intensiv mit viel Sherry. Rosinen und Zartbitterschokolade.
Mit H2O Lebkuchen und Orange.

Comments

War mein erster Sherryfassgereifter Whisky und hat mich sofort umgehauen! Allein schon die Farbe ist der Wahnsinn!

Nose

The nose on tis was different from the 'farclas and yet has some of the same descriptors for me. The orange becomes mixed peel here, but the sherry and raisins are there in abundance

Taste

Sweet and sour. Lots of dried fruits. Mouth-coating too. But the sourness is unusual. However, it works!

Finish

Now the marzipan from the cake comes through, but oddly there seems to e some salt after a second or two, which was unexpected. Very very long finish

Comments

Another good Japanese. For a sherried malt I wouldn't rate this quite with the 'farclas 15 or the Redbreast 12, but it is very very good.

Nose

Strong hints of sherry, a lot of wood glue, chocolate with spirit, cherries, candied plum, a little bit of smoke, fried fruits and delicate citrus notes.

Taste

It starts with smoke and sweetness, fried, or even burned cherry, black currant, blackberry bush, tangerine, light bitterness and a lot of sour fruity notes.

Finish

Medium long with bitterness, cherry, smoke and a little bit of candied grapefruit peel.

Nose

Sweet nose, so deep and full of aromas. So much sherry..

Taste

The taste is all about sherry flavors, smooth and complex sherry notes.

Finish

Medium long finish, with sweet sherry….

Comments

This is a fantastic whisky, is it because this is a sherrymonster? Yepp!! But if you compare this to other sherrymonsters, this isn’t so extreme as the others on the market..
