  1. Roeltje did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    98 points is bullsh*t........... just to keep your own cask into the points. littlebit hypocriet or not??

  2. mattywhisk scored this whisky 98 points Newbie

    Spectacular , spectacular cask. For me, the sherry hit is there definitely but I love the dark, bitter orange that comes through. Take a small sip each time and let it sit on the palate. Sweet dynamite. Outstanding.

    Not every '93 was a winner, in fact, some are straight up over the hill. An expensive way to find that out. Look for the 20-24yo realm ones. A nice whisky, decent mouthfeel, just a tad over-oaked.

    I had a hand in choosing this cask, and did so simply because this is easily the best whisky I have ever tasted. It’s rich and flavourful, but refined. Layers upon layers on those nose, an obvious but refrained sherry cask, with subtle notes of dried fruit that take a back seat to old oak, leather, strawberry, balsamic and sandalwood and milk chocolate.

    Layers of complexity through the long slow finish. Very subtle tannins and not a hint of being over oaked. This is what I always imagined a ‘best’ whisky should taste like
