- Rich，balances，the dried fruits and orange peels，rather long finish. Really good one. classic sherry cask whisky. I guess it's from Ben Nev...love it!
Slightly sweet sherry, caramel, tropical fruits, brown caramelized sugar. Slightly salty? Old oak, light alcohol is added. Orange with a light clove, some furniture polish and a touch of leather. Increasingly tropical fruits, slightly overripe. A delicious and versatile nose that invites you to discover. After a longer time in the glass it becomes a little softer, creamy, supple, but not boring, still with good strength. Christmas cookies and spices mixed?
Light alcohol, not much but a little. Tastes a little younger and stronger than it is. Slightly bitter, only slightly sweet sherry with the same aromas as from the nose but with more wood and oak and a little less tropical fruits. The strong orange aromas remain, as do the cloves and the other Christmas spices. I find it slightly disappointing that even after a long time the alcohol burns a bit and I would have liked more harmony and smoothness.
The orange peel stays in the mouth for a long time, light pepper, still a slight sting on the edge of the tongue and now a completely bitter sherry.
A delicious secret Highland that suits my taste preferences well. Excellent nose but unfortunately too strong, alcoholic taste and a little too dignified for its age. I would buy a bottle for half the price, but it's good but not good enough.
N-93, T-88, F-88 for a good but slightly disappointing (considering the price and age!) 90 points
Dark fruits, oranges, leather, nuts, kiwi, slight sulfur note
Typical sherry influence, plums, raisins, nuts
Rich and dry, spicy and long, cherry stone mouthfeel

the nose is an old bag, the sourness of a dry sherry barrel, we have an age, after standing it became nutty, tobacco. The taste is fast, the aftertaste is soft, subtle, and fading for a long time. small vultures are better than a big sip, a very drinkable glass, an empty glass is very impressive, they can't breathe!
Thanks to Martin for a great choice!
- Delicious. But not € 280 delicious. Spontaneously the question arises whether he is undisclosed to create a mystery. But that was just a brief thought. Could somehow be a Dalmore ... Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/04/08/maltbarn-outturn-tasting/
