1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.40 points

  1. SchottenDicht scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Smells with a drop of water and today 30 minutes time beguiling, the whole room fills despite summerly passage with fruits, oranges, raisins, but not the full dark drone. I sniff closer to the glass and immediately have my gooseberry association, something mineral joins it. And in the nose noticeably the 26 years, I smell some wood. Not that you could say that, but my imagination is more in the direction of some of the Glenfarclas Family Casks I had last tasted.
    Aroma: Wonderfully round and sweet, nothing stings, soft wood, but not too much. Caramel. Sherry, of course.
    Finish: Long and full, the tongue takes over, now more fermented fruit, perhaps through the water, the wood comes through a bit stronger but is still completely in the "frame" (haha). Not as strong as the TWS filling.

    For me, the lighter fruits tend to be surprising but welcome. What can I say, this is not absolutely sherry soaked bottling such as Abby Whisky 1.5 years ago. And that's a good thing. I forgive very good 90/100 even if I miss a little the Christmas spices and plums. Otherwise, 91 points would have been in it.
