  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A sweeter, not so dry woody sherry influence as in WhiskyBroker bottling 126899.
    This is not a pussy to grab without hand shoes!

      A relatively young single grain well over 60%, that's not a promise for much initial subtlety. That glue-ish layer of neutral alcohol is definitely there. But there's quite some vanilla and fresh pear as well, further mellowed by berry notes from the octave. With water the pear really comes loose (Festini), in combination with Wehrter's caramel.

      The sherry influence is more upfront, Caramel and berries. Lemon and tonic from the grain. A bit sharp in the mouth, but it definitely makes you want more. Then with water, there's sugar-coated nuts, and that pear again.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Mocha, salted caramel and lemon.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice and strong graim whisky, with the sherry cask adding some extra flavours making this whisky more fruity. Very good value for money.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Strong and rich 'nose', a lot of alcohol, grainy, vanilla, some banana and honey drop. Raisins, milkchocolate, some glue, pears and caramel.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, intense, honey drop again, chocolate, honey, caramel, some red fruits, raspberry.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still pretty strong, pepper, honey drop, raisins, chocolate, fruity too, intense. Pretty long finish with again some caramel.
