  1. penumbra scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    This is just the highest aged sherry barrel in the winery, but the overall is too bourbon. However, as asserted when I first drank Glenkinchie 12, this is really a good evaluation alternative to rosebank. Although Serge only gave 85 points to this wine, he still said it was very Rosebanky.
    • Nose
      Full grain ears, slightly scented fragrance, rose essential oil, extremely sweet honey, a little fleshy and greasy breath from Shirley barrels, clean white wooden boards, almonds, coconut milk, all kinds of small fresh Rosaceae Fruits, plant stems and leaves.
    • Taste
      White pepper, spicy oak, vanilla, sweet floral notes, licorice, citrus oil, varnish.
    • Finish
      Medium, white oak, vanilla ice cream, butter toast.

    Smell Nose: There are warm baking, banana pie, cinnamon, ginger slices, vanilla, honey water, ripe apples.

    Taste Palate: white pepper, ginger sugar, olive oil, lacquer ware, vanilla, honey and apple juice mixed with a lot of water, spicy spices and woody smell in the first half, bright, hydrated, spicy but not in the second half hot.

    After rhyme Finish: medium length, relatively simple, white pepper, oak, cheap wooden furniture, apple juice.

    Body: Medium-bodied body, light oil, not complicated to build, so the balance is good, the power is not obvious, and it burns slightly.

      Scent: Fresh perfume, green apple, smells very young, full of vitality, sour plum, lime, slightly caramel sweetness.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Entrance: Lime, orange peel, but soon turned to the sense of grease, there is a hint of shredded tobacco. Some of them are like old Japanese cafes. The taste of the pipes at the neighboring table is floating, and then a bite of cheesecake... a complex aroma.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Tail rhyme: toast, oily, slightly bitter, toffee sweet, but not so sweet...
