  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2017]  Typical a'bunadh - a truckload of clean, fat sherry with a nice fruity profile, mainly on dried fruits (raisins and the like).  On the palate fresh fruits too.  Water is not needed (as often with a'bunadh) but it smoothens the dram significantly.  So if you like it rough, drink it neat - otherwise add some water...

    sample.

    A few years ago i may have liked this. Nowadays though i have a hard time calling these things "Whisky". Nonetheless, it's well blended. Tastes like GD Revival on steroids.
    • Nose
      Very typical dark sherry notes like very prominent liquorice, spices, raisins. However, the form is very good. Not agressive, rather very soft. Christmas cake, mint, over oaked Cognac, herbal liqueurs.
    • Taste
      Same thing on the palate. Ultra strong attack on raisins. Then some coffee and plums before it gets very oaky. With water: more liquorice, even more raisins.
    • Finish
      Very long. Mostly on spices.

    I had tried this before and must say, it is even better then I remembered. Sublime. In my opinion the best a’bunadh I have tried so far.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully sherried nose on plums, dades, pears on syrup and caramel, but with a special touch of smoke that I do not detect in all a’bunadh. This one also sports a drop of balsamic and a hint of chocolate on its rich and round nose. Moreover it has got a green edge. Herbal, I think it’s called. On the nose, there is little evidence of the high cask strength.
    • Taste
      The moment it caresses your tongue, it is soft and mildly spicy, but once it reaches every corner of your mouth, you realize the strength. And yet it is quaffable without water. I get kirsch, coffee and balsamic first, then raisins and plums and even a hint of coconut. All is wrapped in some woodsmoke. There is a lot going on here. Very complex whisky.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and sweet, but remains spicy until the death.
