    I got a soft spot for the Càrn Mòr Strictly Limited Edition.
    They are usually young, but also usually tasty. They are uncolored, unfiltered and affordable. After the "revamp" they give even greater value with a higher ABV.
    However, when I see a bottle that is stated "from 2 casks" I always wonder why they were not bottled individually as 2 single casks. Blenders claim they are creating something better than each of the components. But we all know they also try to save casks that are somehow not deemed good enough for a single cask bottling. And if so how much better would the good cask have been on it's own?
    We'll never know, they are forever married. Still, I can't help to wonder, and the better the whisky is, the more I wonder. And this was one of those.

      The notes on the bottle is "Big and bold with rich fruitcake".
      But the nose is that of a very nice rounded sherry.
      Sweet, yes it's a bit fruitcake.
      Rich chocolate, candied dark fruit, a little apple deep down there.
      Well kept and polished wood.
      Very pleasant and inviting nose.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Delivers more than revealed by the nose.
      I guess the bottle note was for the taste, as the immediate spice gives it a "big" feel right from arrival.
      In no way "hot", just a good warming that carries beautiful flavours.
      Not too complex, just very yummy.
      Coffee with lots of sugar, sticky toffee, dark juicy fruits, apple pie.
    • Finish
      89 89
      If nothing changes, is it a finish or just a continuation?
      The main flavors just linger for quite a long time.
      I don't mind the lack of evolvement or transition.
      It strikes, it bites and it won't let go. Nothing else to do than enjoy the rush of sweet venom.
      If anything, there is an ever so light feeling of drying wood.

    Some nice delicate sherry influences, certainly no sherry bomb. But very pleasant for sure.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A lot of milkchocolate, spicy, cinnamon. Ripe apples, raisins, and later on prunes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Full taste, chocolate, caramel, red fruits, strawberry. Honey as well.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still a little tingling mouthfeel, some slight red fruits, honey and chocolate. Middle long finish.

  4. Malthead19 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    COLOUR: light amber

    - a super single malt with only 9 years of maturation
    - displays of good burning quality combined with a
    good barrel
    - worth buying for 70€
    • Nose
      nice fruity-spicy first impression, you can smell the higher filling strength (but not unpleasant), intense, aromatic, raisins, sherry, oak, makes you want to try it
    • Taste
      Warm, soft but directly aromatic attack, oak / wood, raisins, dark sweet sherry, also has a strong spicy note, some cocoa / dark chocolate at the end
    • Finish
      medium length finish ;
      long intense aromatic aftertaste

  5. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Cooked fruits, Christmas cakes, vanilla, honey, fruity and easy

  6. schengel10 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    an incredibly pleasing, tasty and aromatic malt - and that after only 9 years!
    it says 1st fill sherry on it, and that's exactly what it offers!
    = very good Speysider!
    [color:] = amber;
    • Nose
      86 86
      intense nose, sherry, raisins, grapes, fine spices, some wood/oak;

      full-bodied, fruity start, (juicy) raisins, blackberries, sherry, sweetness (honey), creamy milk chocolate, caramel, fine spices, very aromatic;

  11. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Glentauchers and sherry, a great love story, I think.
    This very often results in great bottlings. This one is one of those.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, spices, some ripe Christmas apples, dark fruits and dates
    • Taste
      first full of malty, then comes the oak seasoning, it tingles on the tongue. Milk chocolate, honey, juicy raisins, plums, dates. Everything is very harmonious, the alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      the tongue remains covered with the oak spice, which migrates to the throat. Chocolate malt with dates. Medium to long finish.

  13. greg_0277 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Great value for money. A sherry but rather in the old school genre, far from the current young sherry monsters.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is rather carried by fruits but supported by menthol, eucalyptus. A little polished wood, varnished.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth it is clearly Sherry, very fresh on this minty side. Chocolate, reminiscent of the after eight. A slight fresh tobacco side.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A little short, in the continuity of the mouth.

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    I had a great old Glentauchers earlier this year and now I have had a great young one and hurrah! for the not so fashionable distilleries. I do love it when they shine and long may it continue because there are plenty out there.
    • Nose
      88 88
      This has the smell of fine antique furniture.
      Rosewood, summer pudding, strawberry cheesecake, coffee and tobacco.
      It's the sign of a good nose when the flavours roll off very quickly.
      It's not overpowering or complexed, the flavours are subtle and gently caress.
      A bit of bourbon in there as well.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Just as I imagined and hoped for.
      It's young yes but that has never bothered me because it's all to do with taste and enjoyment and this has them both.
      Light and fruity with just the right amount of spice.
      A good all round balance.
    • Finish
      88 88
      A medium finish and it's warming like a ginger cake straight out of the oven.
      This has a lovely fade to it, meaning the flavours just bow out slowly.
