  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!

    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.

    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.

  5. 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 a rather genetic 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. Slightly 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

  6. 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

    Broken Record

    Well, then, here is the sixth and final sister cask from this series that I will be trying. Again one of those first fill sherry casks at extremely high ABV, filled in March 2007 and bottled in November of last year for the German shop Getränkenwelt Weiser & Flickenshild. Oh, lest I forget, it is also the darkest member of the gang.

    I know that I am beginning to sound like a broken record, but again this nose is simply grand. Dark and sweet on raisins, black grapes and plums, joined by cloves, vanilla, nutmeg and a pinch of cinnamon. Some Mokatine and espresso. It’s a bit more candy-like than his siblings. Reminds me of cola candy, as well as other red candy.

    Despite the ABV, the arrival is pretty smooth. No water needed, which is good news in this case. It is sturdy, even piquant, but quaffable. Raisins, plums, cherries, the works. We are by now quite familiar with this type of malt.

    Maybe I should have kept some water handy, for the piquant and dry finish makes me feel it go down.

    Well, those Glenlivet 2007 first fill sherry hogsheads with number #900xxx are simply stunning. While they are all quite alike, I am happy to have tried them. One can hardly get enough of good whisky, right?

  10. 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
