    Glencairn glass, tried three times. If you get involved in unconventional drams, it's exciting and great.

      Okay, there's a very, very powerful, exuberant sweetness every time. It's awesome, if you like something, a bit oppressive and also covering a lot, because syrupy sweetness is almost (!), But only almost, like liqueur without destroying the malt. Super round for five years, the alcohol is hardly noticeable, there is a lot of PX sherry, some oak, maple syrup and some malt.

      Again super round, again the alcohol perfectly integrated, if a little more than the nose, again syrupy PX sweetness, which unfortunately covers a lot, but unfortunately (only) very tasty. But I like delicious whisky.

      Rather only medium length and not as exciting as the nose

    Whipped up sherry without tasting a bit like whisky. Quite one-dimensional, but it doesn't taste bad either. It's just not whisky :)

  6. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    More PX than whisky. Very sweet, syropy. Not unpleasant but hardly any spirit character or any complexity. The nose is a bit bland. Tastewise it's okay and it does come down easily. I wonder how this would be without the insane influence octave. Did I mention it's sweet? It's very sweet.

    Very cloudy but nice nose. Wonderful, intense sherry taste - reminds me strongly of the 10 year old Edradour / Signatory bottlings. Very easy to drink. Once again a great Glen Els / Elsburn.

    After some time in the glass great. Nice px sweetness but also a lot of strength. But you don't have to dilute it anyway. The nose is also very harmonious for me
