  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 Junior

    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!

  5. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    boah what a sherry board !! I would call him OVER
    very challenging
    nothing is more about Glenlivet
    the oak dominates
    he invites clearly to water features
    he does not drink anything for a while, he wants attention
    you have to like the combination of oak, bitter and herb
    I like that every now and then
    • Nose
      fat sherry, raisins, sweetness and will be more, dark, heavy, red berries, neat leather !! and will be more, banana, oak (young and fresh), chewing gum (so childhood bubblegum), vanilla will be more
      with water: sweeter, more leather really nice
    • Taste
      full, oily and strong on the palate
      Oak, sweet, spicy, raisins, coffee, herb, polish, again leather !! (so tannery / is hard on the edge of evil), the alcohol stands out (not surprising at 66.2%)
      with water: Cherry comes and gets stronger, graphite from the pencil
    • Finish
      long
      strong oak, sherry, sweet, again leather, again cherries
      with water: bitter, astringent, cinnamon !, aniseed or fennel

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Real sherry bomb, very intense. Unless the very high Abv, the alcohol is very well integrated in the whisky, making it still very drinkable without water.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Lovely fruity, surprisingly less pickering alcohol for such a high Abv. Red fruits, coffee, prunes, chocolate. Also some grassy notes, hay.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Verry intense, pickering on the tongue, coffee, pure chocolate, red fruits, very full taste, warming.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Still lot's of tingles, pepper, red fruits, prunes, coffee and a lot of chocolate. Long finish.
