  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    That's exactly my whisky when it's not smoky.

    Great Sherrynote but not so good, rather daring. The 58.7% are good, but not optimally involved.

    The classic taste of raisins and dark ripe fruit dominates in a composition of a submissive woody aroma, which remains only in the background and gives a truly balanced aroma.

    The finish is relatively long and shows the interplay of raisin and rum flavors with a fine woody note, which does not bother and is superimposed by the Sherrysüße.

    After the sweet notes are gone, but then comes at the end of a woody taste to the fore, which lasts for a long time.

    For me, a whisky, the price of € 59.99 convinced. For the price-performance ratio, there are the 90 points.

      In the Magellanic, the first impression is deep, dark and full of preserved raisins. An alcohol note is clearly noticeable now well we are also moving at almost 60%. I have a distinct sweetness in the nose and wooden, nutty components. After some time in the glass a fruity orange appears and this underlines the spice of the whisky even more. The nose is really appealing and intense.

      In the mouth, he then shows what he can, he once occupied the complete palate, he literally crawls into every corner. Then the palate fills up completely with saliva, spice, intensity and wood notes are spreading. Orange, dry orange, a little sweet, less than suspected and again raisins. One notices the distinctly high alcohol content paired with a delicious, intense creaminess. Yes, this is a dry representative who is already demanding a lot of attention. Only a little water tames him and makes it much rounder. The dryness disappears.

      In the finish I feel a sweetness of raisins and honey and I still taste a little woody note, but overall he does not stay too long despite high alcohol.
