  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    An extreme of sherry bombs, very intense and rich, a bit rough that deducted some points from me.
    • Nose
      Very rich sherry and smoke, a lot of tropical fruits, extremely sweet, dried fruits including raisins, apricots etc.
    • Taste
      Rich sherry and ripe fruits, ripe apple, banana and passion fruits. Very leathery as well.
    • Finish
      Long, minty and herbal

    The old Yunding, mixed with old wine, reveals an old style of old style.
    • Nose
      Scent: Tropical ripe fruit stand ~ licorice tablets, bananas, pears, red apples, cream cakes... chocolate cake!
    • Taste
      Entrance: very thick, alcoholic and spicy, black coffee with a layer of cream, caramel cream cake
    • Finish
      Tail rhyme: spice, maltose, thick honey, slightly ginger and orange liqueur, Bailey sweet?

    There are 2 versions of the US 750ml 50% 12 year old 100 proof -- so-called "single dark" and "double dark". Ras Mazunga already claimed the other page as double dark, so let this page be for the "single dark" only.

    I think Wheatfield's notes belong on another  bottle page as the 50% & 57% are a little different profile wise not to mention different abv.

    I think it should be here. this bottle page is for the 50% version, the 57% is the followimg link

    This is the 57% version in a 70cl bottle. Medium amber pour. Nose is pungent…honeycomb, caramelized banana, caramelized pears or apples, taking it to a somewhat funky/fermented level. Freakin good. Mouth thick and very strong. Lots of alcohol heat. But tons of these rich, weird sweet flavors going on. Super heavy banana bread, rum-drizzled raisins with vanilla ice cream. Ah, the most "rum raisin" I've ever tasted in a whisky, hands down! A note in the late finish is black licorice. Just a wild, pungent, and great collage going on. With water - softer and less wild, with a nod toward the sweeter cakes, honey, and a bit of orange liqueur. This is one of the more interesting bottles I've opened recently. Drinking it some timer later, you can find cola syrup, ginger, and powdered spices too foreign to name.

    A stunner no question, just beautiful.I could nose this for hours.
    • Nose
      Sherried perfection, stewed forrest fruits, shoe polish, very rich Christmas cake (lots of brandy and the best cherries).This smells old, leather armchairs, wood, leather, varnish.The nose promises a hell of alot, this is lovely and showed be nosed for a long time to get the best out of it.
    • Taste
      Deep sherry, mouth coating, thick on dark fruits (blackcurrent, black cherry), cinder toffee, dark plain chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long, the fruit and chocolate remain.
