    Nose: a modern, rounded and thick nose. Dense fruitcake, dried figs, plenty of raisins and rich toffee. Apfelstrudel with hints of vanilla. Some brighter notes of orange peel and red berry jam. Earthy spice underneath, mainly cinnamon and nutmeg. Mouth: quite jammy although there are strong spicy notes too. Baked pears, oranges, blackcurrant. Toasted walnuts, Heering cherry, bitter almonds. Cinnamon and hints of coffee. Peppered lemon in the end. Finish: long, rich, on dried fruits, chocolate and peppery oak.

    A modern, rich and vibrant sherry profile. The active oak is balanced by enough juicy fruits. Quite a benchmark in this genre I would say, overtaking recent GlenDronach in my book. Let’s just hope they make consistent follow-up batches. A tad expensive, but recommended nonetheless.

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    modern sticky sherry profile - no Saftmalt but somehow boring and for its price too tasty - but comes closer to the old Glendronach Revival Style for me as the current of Rachel
    • Nose
      86 86
      dried figs, orange, citrus zests, grapefruit peel, sweet, apricot, bitter almond
    • Taste
      86 86
      slightly dry, oily, syrupy - needs a small drop of water to open - dried dates and figs, plum jam, orange, apricot, chocolate, some leather, fine oak tones
    • Finish
      84 84
      warm and sweet - but even after a big long chewed gulp not really medium long

  4. Tommyknocker did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a terrific sherry standard. The favor of the early batch? I hope later bottlings can keep this level.
    • Nose
      ostensibly beautiful, tart fruit notes, blood orange, cherry, chocolate, raisins and new wooden furniture. Very round, nothing stands out. Great composed.
    • Taste
      very full for 43%, here too initially dark, juicy substance, nectarine, blackberry. Then dark chocolate with cherry filling, Jaffa Cake cherry. spicy oak notes. Again, very round and velvety soft.
    • Finish
      long, raisins, cherries and leather.

    Simple sherry, nothing special and not so good in relation to the price. Good as the first whisky in the evening.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Dark fruits, such as plums, citrus notes in the direction of orange and wine-like. Balanced fruity, sweet and spicy.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Sour and peppery. Definitely spicy and woody. A striking strict taste (peppery), but the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Slightly bitter, peppery and chocolatey

  9. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    He needs some air, then suddenly he opens up nicely. Wow, at first boring mainstream and newfangled sherry cask maturation. Then cinnamon, chocolate and walnut. Very intense, delicious. The milky Brennereicharakter also comes through. But not the absolute best in terms of price. But quite pleasant and nice to drink.
