  1. maltaholic scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Insanity color, very dark, mahogany.

    Intense sherry, ripe, fruity, strong.
    But the barrel is not too short - wet, fresh wood.
    Great aroma.

    Warm and soft, it comes to the lips.
    But then...
    The full explosion in the mouth.
    The saliva flows.
    My mouth is numbed, furry, ... but quite positive.
    What a development of the flavors.
    This is a sherry bomb in the truest sense of the word.

    Now pure oak.
    He gets a little spicier.
    Much to discover.

    Malt tip!

    We will not become friends anymore. He definitely needs water. Without it, that makes no sense to him. Overall, he does not seem so harmonious. It always resonates with a certain youthfulness. Still fairly fruity in the nose. In the mouth but then very influenced by the oak. That's nothing bad for me. However, I'm bothered by the species. Somehow a gruff way, how he brings the wood notes and the bitterness over. And I do not mean that he is too bitter for me or anything. I like bitterness. It's just his rude performance. That's not for me.

    Delicious, full plan fulfillment for PX and + 60%; PLV? - I have no idea what it cost
    • Nose
      tart red-fruity (berries, cherries, grapes), furniture polish, earthy-musty
    • Taste
      s. Nose, dark chocolate, lots of nuts ... Sacher cake
    • Finish
      long, warm, dry, spicy ... beautiful oak board
