  1. Mascht scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A great sherry bomb! Granted, the barrel is much more dominant than the distillery character, but that's the case with almost all sherry bombs, and yet we love them. What makes this malt special in my eyes are unexpected bright flavors that gradually reveal themselves behind the classic sherry flavors. Whether it has a slight sharpness in the finish, it is nevertheless round, complex and balanced.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Intense, multi-layered and balanced. First, very dark, dry and spicy sherry aromas of dried figs, dates, prunes, blueberries, roasted nuts and cocoa. Over time, sweet and lighter flavors such as kiwi, lime freshly baked ciabatta and sliced cucumber reveal themselves behind it.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweetly round and astringent. Lots of dried fruit and fresh bread, memories of Christmas stollen are awakened. There are also fresh red fruits such as cherries, red grapes and raspberries. Plus bourbon vanilla, some shoe polish and earthy aromas. The oak wort underlines but is not dominant.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long, sweet and velvety but accompanied by a slight sharpness. In the end, dark fruits remain and at the very end the oak comes through and is stronger than expected.

    Oh yeah! The nose is rich and decadent with this great maltiness. The palate is syrupy with a long development. The finish is maybe a bit short but otherwise very tasty. That beeswax note really sets this ahead of the pack, though. This is at least as good as the North Star Longmorn 15 I had the other day. I’d say the maltier, fruitier, style of this whisky is a tiny bit more to my taste, but I’m sure my preference between those two drams would change day-to-day.

    Nose: Fruity, malty, and strong. Various breakfast cereals: Raisin Bran, Honey Nut Cheerios, or those cornflakes with the dried strawberries, all with milk of course. Butter-smeared toasted raisin challah, dates, cherries, raspberry jam, dried banana, honey, and beer nuts. Vanilla and baking spices. Slightly waxy.

    Palate: Thick texture, but a bit hot. A blast of sticky strawberry jam and sour cherries up front, inexplicably smothered in honey. Toasted cereals, roasted nuts, and bitter-sweet toffee in the middle. Apricot jam on challah toast. It stays toasty towards the finish, with that rich beeswax note emerging.

    Finish: Medium-short. Dried fruit leather, drie

    Opulent, complex and winey ...
    • Nose
      89 89
      Not aggressive and more nuanced than a big sherry. Intoxicating around the cherry. Interesting.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Warm and balanced. The 59 degrees express themselves without brutality and prepare for the final.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long. Hot. Slightly drying out.

    This sherry nuke needs both air and time, plenty of it!

    87 for now, a fair score given the powerful punchy complexity that is hindered by the sherry front.

    Will re rate and review once again in the coming months after oxidation.

  20. MH90 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Dried fruits, plums, cherries, some chocolate with rosemary. Marzipan. The alcohol disappears into the harmony, a beautiful raw harmony.
    • Taste
      Beautifully smooth and round, dried fruit with cherries still leading the way. Nuts come in between. Orange, cloves in the background.
    • Finish
      Long gradual finish, a subtle dance of red fruits and nuts. Here, too, fresh fruit (orange) comes into play. What a joy!

  21. JoshNRW scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    One of the whiskys that taste just right, really good, but do not invite you to discover them.
    • Nose
      Hmm, as I like it, a lot darker, heavier, luscious, sweet sherry, both a bit too dominant and intense, because the smoke in the middle part hardly has any space. Alcohol, however, is well integrated and a well-rounded affair, therefore a tasty, if not mega complex, whisky.
    • Taste
      Like the nose. Alcohol is not as strong here as one would expect in terms of percentages and age. Another nice sherry sweetness and the smoke is not very present.

  22. DoubleEagle scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Simply great, more 'rough' than many sherried malts (in a good way).
    • Nose
      91 91
      Ashy, cooked fruits. Spiciness. Subdued marzipan and pastry (pie crust dough).
    • Taste
      91 91
      Powerful ripe, cooked, red fruits accompanied by nuttiness. Some more fresh fruits in te background, oranges.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The nuttiness coninues with the red ripe fruits. Oak becomes more prominent as the fresh notes subside.
      Fairly long.

  23. Glenjasper scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Great sherry bomb! And that for EUR 65.00.

    Very cute. The 59% are very well integrated in the only 9 year old whisky. Cherry, blackberry, blueberry, ripe raspberry, light oak. Dark chocolate and sherry again.

    Tried it with the 21 year old Glendronach. Ok, the 12 years difference was clearly noticeable and the complexity is a little lacking. But I don't know which whisky I would prefer.

    If there was still some smoke, I would have bought all the bottles.
