    scbp-8731, although it has 43 degrees, the wine is light in body, and the whole thing that can be conveyed in the end is still a little bit. Comparing Glen Ruth with a barrel, the sweetness is obviously higher, but the quality of the wine is slightly inferior, but the thickness and oily feel are still very good when you drink it casually.

      Slightly sulfurous, with a meaty texture, um, pencil shavings, slightly bitter fried sugar color, the expression of earthy is not very obvious, at least I can't smell it, there are raisins, animal fat, a little dark chocolate and cocoa, the second filling is probably, The cup will be much better after waking up, but it is also a very homogenous wine. 88

      In the taste, the style of old Shirley begins to show strongly, and the wine body can beat the Abel of the same age. Soft candy composed of brown sugar, dried persimmon and ginger, the wine is oily, raisins, with dry herbs, high sweetness, combined with nuts and peat, it happens to have a good taste, the wine is slightly thinner and slightly more pronounced monotonous. p89b85

      The bitterness is stronger, woody bitterness, relatively bitter, extremely dry, with a hint of licorice. 89

    It's always difficult to judge old whisky. What was he like when it was poured? how much did you lose while waiting in the wings? matured or lost its former splendor? it is always a mystery ... This whisky is a real pleasure, yes, it is not too complicated, but its simplicity is charming. It is famously balanced, the nose pleases right away, an excellent light whisky with which it is pleasant to spend the evening, it will not make you overextend yourself in search of depths, but will give everything at once, even if it is not very difficult, but it is very tasty
    • Nose
      90 90
      delicate and light, dried fruits forgotten in a dusty attic, fading coals in the grill, overripe grapes forgotten on the vine, dark chocolate, a little vanilla, delicate and pleasant
    • Taste
      88 88
      dried plums and pears, sherry, some spices, very light
    • Finish
      88 88
      dry, warming, a little spice in sherry, a little old wood, light and unobtrusive, short enough

    Very good. Grandma's wardrobe ...

  11. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Finally I found my notes of this one.

    C: Brown/amber like

    N: sherry notes, lots of fruit and sweetness, malt and perhaps some floral notes?

    P: Smooth, mouth coating, the sherry comes back, with a touch of chewy oaky dryness

    F: Long with some woodspices and drying in the back

    A bit more toffee and less powerful and citrusy than the Previ import.

  13. mds51 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sherry notes, citrus, red apples, oranges, nuts, blackcurrant, salt, mushrooms,
    • Taste
      Creamy, wood, earthy berries, cherries, syrupy, coffee, nutty, dark chocolate, roasted aromas, raspberries
    • Finish
      The syrupy feeling stays in the mouth and lays on the cheeks. There remains a woody-spicy-sweet finish, which is medium long.

    Another great sherry monster. This is a great whisky, and is still accessible at the price point.

    Once it was o wonderfull "standard" bottle.
    • Nose
      Vanilla and toffee, then follow ripe fruits and nuts.
    • Taste
      Perfect malty sweetness with typical sherried notes, smooth and silky mouthfeeling.
    • Finish
      Rather medium to long, verry well balanced and really pleasant to drink.
