  1. dRambo scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    a real flavors board without drowning in the sherry, never too much cask remains always whiskey - exciting, delicious, very productive with high flavor density and great aroma profile - very cool - the gunpowder sulfur note is probably not everyone's thing - I especially like the seasoning Fruchtbalance clear tobacco embossing - I'm typing on European oak

      To start with, a bit of warmth, patience - even a tiny drop of water.

      Fresh moist tobacco, old leather belt, a touch of gunpowder, sour fruity slightly sulfuric-metallic rosehip / pomegranate juice, honey sweetness, sweat, garlic, red plum juice, blueberries, blackberries, rotten wood, forest soil,

      superfine mint fresh cool and warming, with flowers and geranium foliage, and a hint of wax, it lies with a dense woody, leathery, sweet wood film on the train, verströhmt tobacco and the tannins pleasantly against dense heavy red fruit flavors with a certain yummy sulfuricity, very beautifully interwoven, the aromas pulsate very lively - tobacco-wood-spices and fruit are constantly wrestling for supremacy, joined by a pleasantly bitter chocolate-nut note

      very long - a continuation of what he offers on the palate - a little more wax, in the end more spice,

    • Nose
      Very wide and strong with a lot of depth, deep and old sherry smell. Good mix between modern sherries like the Macallan Edition 4 and old sherry bombs by Michel Couvreur. Oh, 30 minutes more air in the Blenders jar and it opens up properly, roasted almond, bee and honey wax, dark sweet pudding. With a little bit of water, it's even softer and rounder. Great to smell long.
    • Taste
      Slow start, then becomes wider, the sherry comes, dry and warm sweetness, oak without bitterness, alcohol top top top included. With water still a slow but rising start and very round. Really nice and complex.
    • Finish
      Great, how it slowly increases and then remains in the mouth for a long time. Super bottling of Marco Bonn and the Brühler whiskey house.

    The nose is extremely complex with a wonderful musty and musty note. Gorgeous, I could only "mop up" this malt ;-). In terms of taste, the old blend fades a little bit, dominated almost only tart and dark aromas. In the end, I am fascinated by a rather rare waxy aroma, as well as the aftertaste remains present for a long time and warms the palate. A great blend, even if he makes me a little disappointed by this auspicious nose. But really just a little bit ...

    • Nose
      Cloudy amber rests in the Premium Snifter, oily and tenacious "legs" stick to the glass wall. Cumbersome roasted flavors and slightly musty or rotten wood elements rise up. The initial muff and moder gradually turns into wet leather and sweet tobacco, minimally show dried berries and grapes. Sweetness and caramel rise, dark berry flavor can not decide between sweet PX and wooden Oloroso ... Candied fruit flavor plays with wooden seasoning, hazelnuts fall on dried orange slices and old peach wedges. Forest honey and damp forest soil appear, again shows musty wood and wet leather, plums and raisins are drizzled by caramelized sugar. Hints of nut chocolate and a minimal hint of sulfur follow, at the moment dominated again the wonderful musty and decayed wood note. Slowly my salivation is stimulated, I could smell forever on this interesting nose.
    • Taste
      Herb and wooden, the first sip flows over the tongue. Gunpowder spreads throughout the mouth and massively stimulates the saliva, dark and spicy wood elements mix with old fruit flavors and burnt sugar. Again, wet leather and old tobacco, sweetness plays with slightly bitter wood tones, tart grapefruit juice drips from the tongue edge. Slightly resinous, wet forest soil and fir spines stand out, rasp of dark chocolate and a touch of cold espresso combine to create a tart mouthfeel. Old, slightly rancid hazelnuts appear, the wood tones become drier and tart. Do I taste a few drops of sour cherry juice?
    • Finish
      Herb stick tart grapefruit aromas on the palate, the mouthfeel is characterized by candle wax. Again, I form a sour cherries to taste ... Long linger the dark and tart aromas on the palate, from time to time the salivation is stimulated again. A touch of pepper or sharpness sticks discreetly on the palate the whole time, minimal shows a touch of furniture polish on the tongue. The echo remains warm for a long time in the memory.

    This whiskey lives up to its label.

      A very complex and complex nose that takes time. Not too many flavors come across at the very beginning, so I leave the dram for about 40 minutes and cover the glass so that it can breathe.

      Then reveals moldy notes with rotten wood and fruit tobacco, sherry-typical prunes and a dark fruit cocktail with forest fruits and berries. I would say a mix of blackberries, gooseberries and blueberries.

      The glass plays a not inconsiderable role: in the Glencairn Copita heavy, woody notes come through, but less fruit. In the Premium Snifter, significantly fruity accents come through, which are complemented by the wood notes and not superimposed.

      In addition there are bitter notes, then chocolatey-sweet notes with espresso and milk chocolate. I could hang on the glass all evening without even trying.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The start is strong, intense, woody and spicy, the mouthfeel very waxy. A fruity-sweet taste quickly spreads in the mouth, something tangy is also there - this tart and sour interplay is probably what is described in the reviews here as grapefruit - and stimulates the salivation. Gunpowder? Maybe, but I'm a little too insensitive to ascertain that.

      The palate is predominantly dominated by fruity and tart notes, tobacco, again espresso, cherry pie and again rotten wood.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Spices and forest fruits are on my tongue, and there are also slightly sour notes of sherry. In addition to nuts and some oak, these aromas gradually fade, but it takes a long time. Very long.

  9. craide scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Finally one of those old sherry malts with great, diverse flavors without being overloaded with sherry. Harmonious, very good balance between nose, palate and finish. Hardly drops at all and maintains a high and complex level. Delicious, great !!

      Fruity, honey-sweet beginning. Dried orange peels, plums, figs, dates. Great fruit mix. In addition, wet, freshly cut wood, tobacco with a dusty, musty attic.
      There is also a wonderful spice mix of nutmeg, lavender and some cloves.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The taste goes in a slightly different direction. Great contrast.
      Slightly sour, fruity after grapefruit, currants and peppery hot. Pleasant spicy oak. Sweetness comes through. I also find a slight oiliness with nuts, a little dark chocolate and marzipan.
      Versatile, harmonious, beautifully full-bodied.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Medium-long finish, slightly bitter after coffee, spiciness remains longer, light wax notes
