  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    wonderful sherry bomb, even if the barrel of distillery character does not let anything through.

    Amazing especially how well the alcohol is involved, actually needs no water.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The alcohol is surprisingly well integrated, plums, dark and sweet cherries, dried dates, some leather and some roasted aromas, plus some chocolate, ginger, cinnamon and hazelnut / toffee
    • Taste
      89 89
      strong start, but again the alcohol is surprisingly well integrated. Strong sweetness, plums, raisins, ordinary portion of oak, but not too much, spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon)
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long and pleasant, of course, a lot of sherry with the sweet plums, raisins and tobacco / leather, which turns into liquorice and balsamic, here too, the oak is clearly there, but not overpowering.

  2. Holbech scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This was tasted after the sistercask for Brühler #900127. Very much like 127 but just.. less.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is filled with stewed exotic fruit. A sherry-profile much like the 900127 with no sulphur. This is like 127 but just less of it and less intense. The 66.2% abv is not a problem what so ever.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the taste it differs a bit from its sistercask. More creamy, coconut, still exotic fruits (mango, papaya, fresh coconut). A touch of mint and eucalyptus. A feel the alcohol in the top of the mouth..
    • Finish
      87 87
      The mint and eucalyptus follows in the finish. A tad drier than 127. And no surprise a bit of alcohol. At the end in the faint distant the exotic fruits are back!

    -Blind tasting-
    Over 60%, around 8 years old, generously pimped by a fat sherry barrel - a zeitgeist whisky. Modern style, the distillery can no longer be made out. Blind tasting an interesting and educational experience. wlk 20-07.
    • Nose
      86 86
      As the nose suggests: Dark fruity first impression with dried figs, sultanas, black cherries, warm blackberry jam. Crackling leather, a shot of furniture polish. Dark chocolate, coffee powder. Looks a bit pointed here and there at the beginning, it should have some revolutions. Over time, however, this will change. In between, light-fruity aromas flash through, which, however, cannot prevail against the aromas playing in the dark.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Fairly strong onset, dry, as in the nose with a rich portion of sweet, dark fruits: grapes, raisins, dried figs, black cherries. This sweet fruit pot pourri is cushioned by a dry wood note that resonates from the start. Menthol on the one hand ensures a certain freshness, chocolate, toffee, coffee grounds and almonds on the other hand ensure a pleasant thickness on the tongue.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, dry, now tart and fruity. The dryness is almost furry on the tongue. Herber honey, creme brulee, coffee grounds, leather.

  4. aspa scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Uhhh strong sherry bomb. Very sweet, but also slightly bitter. Plums with brown sugar and raisins in rum. Figs and medjool dates. You notice the young age a bit, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated and stings a little.
    In the mouth it goes on exactly the same, the barrel dominates and makes the whole thing a good drinking pleasure, but just a more generic pleasure. Caramel, dark chocolate and a little mint are added. Spicy and slightly tart oak hide. The sherry is very well made despite the dominance and shows no bad notes. Lightly burnt brown sugar can be found after a few minutes.
    In the finish, the sherry dominates with dark, slightly bitter chocolate and a little polish and leather.

    Delicious, but dominated by the barrel.

    N-88, T-87, F-84, delicious 86 points

  5. HammerHead scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in a line up of casks 900127, 900130 and 900131.
    The profile is closer to cask 127, the score is as well.
    1. 900131 - 90 pts
    2. 900127 - 88 pts
    3. 900130 - 88 pts
    • Nose
      88 88
      As with the other casks, a full on sherry attack. First the shoepolish, which keeps on hanging up front for quite a while. A more closed off nose than the other two. There's nuttiness and leather with more of a tropical fruitiness but it remains just a little vague (mainly peachy and apricots), though it is quite syrupy and candy like. Also there's raisins, coffee, something of a mint note, faint cinnamon and a general wood spiciness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Like cask 127 it's also spicy and in my opinion needs just a little water. Then there's a fruity sweetness (peach, fig, raisins) with some mild toffee notes. Also coffee grounds, peppers and subtle dusty wood spices.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long with raisins, cocoa, coffee, mild peppers and nicely drying oak wood notes.

  6. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    An incredible sherry bomb! Powerful and intense, the complete range of different sherry flavors runs from the nose to the reverberation and makes the heart of every "Dark Sherry lover" beat faster. Great part, I like it very much!

    23/22/22/23 (90P)
    • Nose
      Deep dark amber and velvety red copper glisten in the glass, oily "legs" pull their endless tracks back into glass on the glass wall. Discreet roasted aromas mingle with dark dates and plums at the beginning, dried berries and red grapes are whitewashed by velvety vineyard peach and ripe apricots. Sweet milk chocolate and caramelised sugar are on display, it shows a subtle orange aroma with a minimal hint of sulfur. Leather and a few crumbs of dried tobacco leaves slowly stimulate my saliva, sweet sugar and dark sherry flavors play together. Dark toffee and a handful of hazelnuts complete the wonderful Sherrynoten.
    • Taste
      For a moment sweetness flashes, then dark sherry aromas and voluminous alcohol flood the palate. Tingling sharpness lays over the tongue and makes the tip of the tongue glow, the high alcohol warms the esophagus and the stomach. Here is necessarily a water addition
      necessary! Creamy flows the second sip after a proper addition of water over the tongue. The alcohol is still powerful to feel, subtle sharpness heats the tongue and the palate. The salivation begins massively, dark grapes and raisins are mixed with sour cherries and the abrasion of orange peel. Dark whale and hazelnuts come on, dark chocolate and a touch of freshly brewed espresso exude her tart aroma. After a fresh addition of water, the situation relaxes noticeably, wonderfully creamy and sweet spread dried berries and caramelized sugar in the palate. Spicy wood tones rise, caramel and chocolate follow.
    • Finish
      Powerful and warming are the intense sherry flavors on the tongue. More and more show spicy and tart wood elements, leather and tobacco come to light again. A fresh menthol and mint note dissolves on the dark fruit note and refreshes the palate. With dark walnut aromas, the aftertaste sounds slow and leaves behind leather, dark fruit flavors and spicy wood tones. At the end, spices and herbs are on the tongue, creamy and yet harsh, the aftertaste sounds complete.

    Blind tasting

    A crass-wet barrel, no smoke, making the distillery almost impossible to recognize. I think some Speysider. Alcohol 60+ certainly, thanks to the extreme sweetness with light smears to enjoy pure.

    Despite the barrel, despite the massive sweetness and the non-existence of the distillery character, a delicious "modern" drop that you can always enjoy. It's really almost a matter of attitude, whether you like it or not, I'm sometimes on it, but really doesn't always have to.
    • Nose
      Very sweet, a lot of sherry, minimal stinging, pure simply concentrated, expanded PX notes. Maybe a little something nutty, and also a little bit tart oak in the background.
    • Taste
      In the mouth a lot of pepper, cigar box, sherry aromas, sweetness and wood flavor, a little hot, but very tasty, the sweetness is very extreme.
    • Finish
      The finish is now really on spices, cigar box, some tobacco, minimal bitterness at the end, otherwise also a little mint and a slight tingle of alcohol, light muff.

  9. Ostfriese scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The barrel is very overpowering and dominant here ...

    Notes from a blink tasting
    • Nose
      Old leather, vanilla and the scent of a cigar box. The alcohol gets through easily. Spruce needles and sultanas. Light citrus aromas in the background, blood oranges. Over time, cherries, nut oil and cocoa butter are added
    • Taste
      Fruity with a lot of steam on the kettle, slightly malty. Oranges, cherries, old leather and hops. Roasted aromas and a good portion of tannins. The alcohol sizzles on the tongue. Raisins and currants
    • Finish
      Vanilla, oranges and milk coffee. Caramel, slightly spicy.

  10. Dottore scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    BLIND TASTING
    N: First of all, super mild without any alcohol piercing in the nose. Meaty, almost like beef broth. Sherrysweet, most likely direction PX.
    M: Here then spicy-hot. Next Umami. Sticky-sweet sherry notes, slightly musty, slightly metallic sharpness, this metal taste also has some tongue and cheeks
    A: Medium long. Coconut and vanilla. Very sweet then increasingly woody-bitter
    Conclusion: classic sherry bomb, probably a PX barrel by 57%. Tap here on a Glenrothes, the fleshiness is somewhat reminiscent of a Mortlach. 87 points
