  2. _H_ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This is definetly for those who love heavy sherry influence. Dark, rich and heavy - a flawless Oloroso Whisky without any off-note. Almost like a sherry at (Whisky) Cask strength.
    Generally I prefer more balanced Whiskys, but from time to time such a "sherry monster" is a great experience.
    Only thing to critisize is the absence of distillery charakter (it is a Glenlivet but could honestly be anything else...).
    Great stuff nonetheless!

  3. vlad78 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This is not the first time I have tasted whisky from this merchant and I must say that this extreme concentration and strength, for me personally, add points to the drink.
    • Nose
      Plum and grape pastille, bright, hot notes of wood, oak, oak bark, heated lacquer, burning leather chair.
    • Taste
      Knocking down like a stream of water, extremely sweet, extremely strong, extremely tart. Each facet of it is extreme, as if you are simultaneously riding all the rides at once.
    • Finish
      What can I say, you feel like a dragon, because if you open your mouth, a flame will burst out of it. Everything described above, supplemented by brightness, complete numbness of the oral cavity and receptors of the tongue, on which salt is released through the marshmallow layer.
      PS I must say that diluted with water it becomes calmer (like other whiskys that I have tried from this company), softer, but does not lose its merits.

    • Nose
      Lacquer paint, silicone, pine cones, light turpentine, lightly roasted rubber, dried figs, straw, chestnut mushrooms, chanterelles, potting soil.
    • Taste
      Raisin cake, javanais, coffee liqueur, chocolate, fresh rolls.
    • Finish
      A dram for bearded men!
