  1. Dottore scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    According to relatively reliable sources, a Glenlivet. The sweetness of Josefine shows right in the nose. Haribo Tropical Fruits, caramel, overripe fruits. Behind it vanilla and a pleasant freshness. In the mouth you can feel the oak cargo, bitterness joins to the pronounced sweetness. Pepper tickles tongue and cheeks and warms. In the finish, the oak remains long, very long persist, some cocoa, some cinnamon. Nice!
    Conclusion: Great Malt, for those who like very sweet malts. The age shows in the taste nevertheless by quite bitter oak notes. Sure, it could be more complex, but hey, 120 Euros for a 26 year old malt are really ok. In addition, he is really delicious.

    Incredibly sweet and sometimes tart at the same time. I like a great and interesting bottling!

    • Nose
      Creamy, slightly reddish caramel shimmers in the Premium Snifter. Candied fruits rise sweetly, red berries and dark apricots combine with mandarins and trophic fruits, vanilla and cocktail cherry end in a beguiling sweetness and fruit. Toffee, caramel and milk chocolate, creamy sweets and sugar follow and increase the excitement at the first sip ...
    • Taste
      The first sip flows sticky and sweet on the tongue, subtle roasted aromas are released from spicy cedar wood, candied apples and dark apricot exude their sweet fruit aroma. Subtly tickling sharpness on the tongue, dark wood tones emerge, creamy peach ends tart and at the same time sweet on the palate. Red and yellow fruits play with each other, slightly minerally blurred taste and aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Fruit flavors stick to the palate, warm and sweet, tart and spicy wood tones rest on the tongue, the voluminous aftertaste fades away.

      vanilla, oak, a hint of red fruits, long.

    Nose: You can smell the sweet wine, fruits. But rather closed. Some cooked mash.
    Mouth: Incredible sweetness. If this is what you like in whiskies, then you are in paradise here. Mixture of dark und bright sugared fruits, almost like gummybears. I loved it! Doesn't taste this old.
    Finish: Astoninglishly long, now the age statement with 26 y. comes into the fight. Portion of balanced wood and oak appears and the finish stays quite long!

    Great whisky, if you are into big time sweetness.

  5. Mankut scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It arrives in the mouth as oily and sweet. Great dark mineral fruits in the taste. Ne great sweetie. 50% perfectly integrated. In the finish, the sweetness subsides slightly and mixes with a slightly pleasant bitterness of grapefruit. Then he gets the curve again and the sweet gives a great finale.
    Class dope
