  2. Beatroute Malt scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Toffee, sweet & sour (classic Glenfarclas profile). Great nose, a little disappointing on the palate. Short finish. Suspect it would be better at higher ABV.

  3. lazycat74 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    In my opinion, it is a reference aged sherry spider (Highlander?). Calm, balanced, delicious. Consistent from nose to finish. Sherry does not protrude (although I like pereheresyatina). It would be interesting to try it on barrel strength.

  6. MartinSchmartin scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Tried in August 2020 at MA

    Very good, easy to drink. Less complex than expected.

  7. marmeladow scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Very complex. A lot of sherry wonderfully integrated into the spiciness of the oak. Chocolate. Very little bitterness for 25 years in a sherry barrel. a hint of vanilla. Chocolate nut again. Clear tasty dry fruits - but not stale - paired with a fresher note. Above all: with every dram you discover something new!

  9. LeChiffre scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice whisky with interplay of fruity sweetness and tingling oak. No dark heavy sherry malt, rather fresh and light. In addition a great PLV for a 25 year old. Nice standard for me, easy to drink.

  10. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful sample of sherry.
    I recommend adding a drop of water to Glenkeirn.
    Nose: raisins, dried apricots, toffee, black chocolate ... Super edible nose.
    Taste: pereheresyatina in action ... brown sugar, raisins ...
    Aftertaste: quite long, pleasant, with hints of iron and blood
