  1. tommy12 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Great color, nice, pleasant sherry scent, alcohol perfectly integrated, vanilla, no missing tones. Taste: Sherry, sweetness (perfectly integrated and not too much like with some PX Casks), maybe very light cardboard in the background, harmonious and pleasant, mouthcoating, intense, long finish in small "waves", in no way overwhelmed, raisins, very subtle pleasant oak, no smoke. Overall a fantastic bottling and one of the best whiskys I have ever drunk. Compared to # 7411, which is also very good, a bit better.

    A small sample (2cl) leaves me perplexed and amazed. How can an old Oloroso Sherry Single Cask be so round, sedate and at the same time strong and aromatic at the same time with this ABV. Isn't it a perfect, sedate, harmonious 30 to 40 year old blended malt by famous Speysider, which nevertheless knocks you over with its cask strength at first glance? No! An old, perfect barrel that perfectly combines dark dried fruits, old oak, old sherry and bitter fruit sweetness! I admit that I am overwhelmed by this!
    A rollercoaster ride for the senses with an old sherry profile that will soon be a thing of the past as time goes on. Here you get a wide range of flavors and from the key data I believe everything that (not smoky) whisky has to offer at all. Unfortunately this has its price (exaggerated for me). But if you still get something like that in the future, it will soon be more in four digits. So I show no regrets owning a bottle of this!

    If it wasn't just a small sample for the first impression, this dram might have the potential to get 1-2 points more. To be honest, I don't know what else can be improved here without it becoming priceless.
