  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A sherry bomb done to perfection. Most impressively, this never becomes drying and it retains enough complexity to stay interesting.
    • Nose
      Soft and attractive, with a good chunk of dark chocolate, as well as rose petals, sweet oranges and cherry syrup. Heavily sherried—duh!—but not overpowering, which is an impressive balancing act. Subtle notes of shoe polish, leather and varnish.
    • Taste
      The subtle spices (cinnamon, cloves) combine well the cocoa and notes of tobacco leaves. Syrupy and rich, with maraschino cherries and dried figs, as well as a hint of cappuccino.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and dark chocolate.

    Really impressive dram. Tasted it, bought it the same minute.

    The darkest chocolate I tasted in whisky in a long time. Hint of tobacco, spicy, sweet espresso. Very nice oily mouthfeel. All kinds of flavours keep showing up. Lovely.

    Sherry bomb, but a bit different. It's not right in your face, but keeps building up and up. Superb dram.

  4. Gil firth scored this whisky 100 points Member Junior

    Astonishing whisky. Very reach flavour and deep complexity. The best of the last daily dram series. A remarkeble glenrothes.
