    For me personally the best batch so far, especially a brilliant nose! ( "Chocolate Monster")
    Notes without water.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate. Rather dark, the alcohol is there, but not overly dominant.
      Strong sweetness comes to it, dark fruit, raisins. After a while, a touch of orange.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Violent start, but despite almost 60% not unpleasant alcoholic - the sweetness is dominant, syrupy. Light mint note with lots of chocolate towards the finish.
      Not quite as complex as the nose, but very delicious.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Flowing transition with the chocolate again clearly dominates in the finish. Stimulates the flow of saliva and remains with a subtle sweetness.

    Had this at a digital glennallachie tasting.
    This is a really nice cask strength whisky. It is powerful and young and strong but really well balanced. Also the price to performance ratio is amazing.
    • Nose
      86 86
      dark chocolate and a lot of it. again nice speyside character, pears, apricots, but also rasberries, and tropical fruits (passion fruit?) and even though it is cask strength quite easy on the nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Wow I like the taste of it, it is very sweet as was expected by the nose. Again dark chocolate and cocoa. It is powerful, and really very sweet, again it goes in that maple syrup sweetness, also mint and spicy woods.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A nice long finish, vanilla, also the chocolate and cocoa is still very present. sweet again and it accents the taste and the nose even more. good stuff

    very tasty and tasty. I also find it very soft and round despite the high alcohol content. He doesn't need water.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Dark chocolate, caramel, somewhat sweet, dark fruits, raisins, the high alcohol content is hardly noticeable, light sherry notes, very round and soft
    • Taste
      86 86
      here too a chocolatey but also violent start. Caramel also comes from the dark fruits. Slightly minty
    • Finish
      87 87
      long finish, I taste sherry and again the chocolate notes as well as the caramel. Dried fruit and light honey come at the end

    Powerful and rich traditional sherry whisky, honest, indicating the age. “Made by a whisky lover for whisky lovers,” says Billy Walker.
    This whisky needs time to unfold, no need to rush, let her catch her breath. Taste profile - chocolate with raisins, dried fruits, nuts and, of course, sweet sherry; Despite the barrel fortress it is drunk well in its pure form, with the addition of water it softens a little, but remains pleasant and tasty. A fine example of classic whisky. In my opinion, a favorite in the lineup.
    • Nose
      87 87
      First closed, dense, requires aeration; spicy marinade-lacquer note, gradually revealed with a sweet mix of dried fruits, prunes, dried apricots, raisins, a little later cocoa, a lot of sweet sherry - rich
    • Taste
      87 87
      Body: dense, thick, enveloping
      Taste: traditionally sherry - sweet prunes, dark raisins, figs, bitter and tart cocoa, roasted almonds, sullenness, spiciness - power and pressure
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long-lasting, continuing taste, warming, sweetness of dried fruits, slightly tart woody, dark chocolate, sweet sherry

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Quite lovely Batch 2 from a wee tasting months ago. This B3 comes along with quite different composition, while PX and Olorosso still in the blood stream, they have replaced the Virgin Oak in B2 with 1st Filled Sherry for this one. All sherry affair with well balanced of OS and PX interchanging swiftly with deep nutty oiliness. At 58.2%, my nose are up for a sensational treats with toffee smokes, cocoa powder, wood shaves fragrant. Various sugar coated danish pastries with cinnamon powder, sticky and inviting. (88/22)

    P- Full and rounded. Juicy strength and ripe fruits sweetness oozing in the oak-y sphere, toffee, bitter treacle and echoing charred notes. Feeling the weight on the nose. (89/22)

    F- Medium long, frizzy spicy coat lasted overtimes. Chewy, ripe tannnin, sticky sweet with more dried fruits delivery at the tail. (86/20)

    B/B- 89/22

    Weighted Rate- 86pt. Young and lively B2 ; Mellow with depth in B3.

    Cr-2, Fr-2, Fl-0, Pt-0, Ft-2, Sp-0, Wd-3, Wn-3, Sc-3
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
