  3. Bam scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Great whisky, looks much older. Reminiscent of Aberlour A'Bunadh or Glenlivets Nadurra Sherry, with sweet sherry flavors and strong oak cargo. However, it is much more complex than the two.
    • Nose
      Sweet sherry flavors pour from the glass, cherries and plums. Roasted hazelnuts, milk chocolate and dark nougat. The oak is surprisingly strong, too, for the young elder, and brings along fresh herbs, marjoram, and heather. A mineral note is also felt.
    • Taste
      Strong onset, oily mouthfeel, again the cherries and plums, also some fresh figs are now included. Caramel, honey and various nuts raise Turkish honey. Chocolate and nougat. The oak then spreads slowly in the mouth, bringing back the herbal notes.
    • Finish
      Long finish, the red fruits on the palate remain long, the oak is getting stronger, and slightly bitter, espresso. In addition to menthol, pepper and and the herb notes.

      Fat chocolaty raisins, plum jam, sugar beet syrup, musty wood, wonderfully integrated alcohol, black bread crust
    • Taste
      88 88
      Lots of pressure and heat, spicy chocolate, spicy and dry, much older than on the label
    • Finish
      87 87
      A lot of warmth and spice, youthful punch without youthful character to spray, remains very long, in the end comes dark chocolate

    The Brennereicharakter is covered by sherry. Amazing amount of oak for the age. Is very good drinkable undiluted, no alcoholic stinging. Sweet, subtly sour and tart. Neat dark fruits with a little chocolate.

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A whisky about which one can not tell so much, the Brennereicharakter is gone, the sherry and the oak are there. But that really fits together wonderfully and is delicious.
    • Nose
      The nose is pure sherry, many dark fruits, rum raisins, chocolate, tart, strong oak and despite the 8y not somehow alcoholic, the oak rescues the exuberance of sweetness, so it's an intense, yet balanced smell.
    • Taste
      In the mouth here too, despite the 59% pure enjoyment. Strong, sweet fruits and bitter oak complement each other perfectly.
    • Finish
      In the finish, then tends more oak, tart without becoming bitter, the sherries are omnipresent.
