- Pretty good the drop but too expensive and not worth the hype. Had the blind in the glass and was sure to have a Glen Moray with sherry finish in front of me. There are countless 2007 Glen Morays out there right now. But as always come all Secret Speyside or Unknown Speyside or .... by Glenfarclas or Macallan - yes ne is clear ^^
- with water: opens the malt without losing its basic characteristics. More fruit, cherry and a few more spices, oddly enough I have a hint of caraway in my nose
Conclusion: Yes, if that's not Glen Moray! The character is very typical with the earthy-mineral base tones, plus the maltiness that comes across here with sherry as black bread. Delicious part, especially the more bitter in the nose, with the cherry as a counterpoint in the taste. Successful, but it is also not suitable for hypewhisky.
clear sherry notes, but not the sweetish nuances. Bitter chocolate, leather and tobacco, slightly earthy / mineral in the back, after a while and a little hand warmth cherry jam and black bread are added
here too the tart sherry impression from the nose, plus a whole load of cherries, a little oak
medium length, sherry, leather, cherry, neat oak behind, but not too strong, chocolate
- I'm not a fan of all these new-fashioned hyped supposed Macallan Sherry bombs, but this one is amazingly drinkable and very round without having to use water.
- If this were a bet, my money would be on Glenfarclas. It's got that yeast/woody/vegetal/herbal funk. Very enjoyable and lively with a nice citric kick on the mid-palate. The sherry is not overpowering but actually complements the spirit. That being said, I slightly prefer the 10 y.o. (WID 109755) over this one. The 10 is more refined and laid back; the 11 is a bit more in your face.
