  1. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A little interchangeable, this sherry malt, but tasty and with really well integrated alcohol.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Juicy-sweet sherry nose, quite flattering. Warm almond croissants, red gummy bears, a good dose of beeswax and dandelion flowers - that makes you hungry for more.
    • Taste
      87 87
      First a creamy candy, followed by candied ginger, spicy forest honey before it quickly becomes sour and dry.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The oak comes relatively quickly, a slightly astringent tannin bitterness builds up, until the whole thing ends harmoniously.

    Boah, that's good. Whether you like the label or not, I really like the malt and it definitely has facets to discover for the next time.
    • Nose
      After a good 20min of idle time, the car was finally cooled down and the initially stinging alcohol requirement evaporated. There are now typical refill sherry notes. But definitely also lies on the fruity side, with red berries and cherries. Wood is also really just a hassle of 'dirt'.
    • Taste
      He has one in his mouth. strong start, in which the red berries also dominate. Tastes like a very active barrel and well-burned spirit. Burgie-typical notes? I don't know, my first Burgie. But a tasty one for that! Shortly before swallowing, it gets dry in the mouth again.
    • Finish
      The finish is really long and fruity.

    Reminds me strongly of the Cigar Malt 3 BW. Less sweet, traces of light fruit, apricot, cake batter. Very nicely done.

    Unfortunately a sourly bad note in the nose. But the taste is very good.

    Fruits, honey caramel, in the mouth there is sweet creamy, with fruit, finish, multilayered, oak, getting dry, with chilli and ginger.
    Great, really a nice whisky, you can tell his age.

  8. Svarttt scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Much better with water from a large glass.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Kaiserschmarrn with lots of raisins, powdered sugar and a pinch of cinnamon.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, creamy, dark honey. A neat sweetness that slowly moves towards the spice rack.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweetly spicy with a subtle dryness.

  9. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Overall, tasty and pleasant to drink, but you have to like the sweetness that is initially present in the mouth. Towards the end, the oak wort sets a good counterpoint. Delicious, but the sample (also with a view to the price) is enough for me.

      very sweet and dark fruity; red berries; Cherries; Caramel; some raisins; Spices; a delicate pleasant oak flavor; the alcohol, which is slightly stinging at first, will disappear in the glass with a little time

      sweet (slightly sticky); Dried fruits; Raisins; Chocolate; spicy oak notes as a good counterpoint to the sweetness
    • Finish

    • Nose

      Slightly lovage, alcohol is imperceptible in the Glencairn and barely perceptible in the blender glass, this whisky is so round.
      A lot of sweetness, which unfortunately covers everything.
      A typical DoS sweetness that you find delicious or that you despise as over-covering.
      Honey, caramel, I like the tasty sweetness as a treat because the breadth already fits at the age of 21, but it's not a journey of discovery.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here, too, very tasty, little alcohol, nothing disturbs like a Glenfarclas - you like it because you like to drink delicious whisky or you don't feel challenged enough because you have to discover something in every malt.
      Round and a bit broad, too little complexity, but also very tasty to drink.
