  1. Syburger scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Takes a lot of time in the glass (min. 30 minutes) and water! For 21 years and an issue price of € 115, it falls far short of expectations.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very cautious at first, then gentle notes of sherry. Dry red fruits, peaches, pickled raisins, apricots and a caramel sweetness.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sharp notes of alcohol. The alcohol is not really well integrated, which is very surprising and negative at the age of 21. When the alcohol has gone full-bodied and warming. Vanilla, oak, gentle notes of sherry, honey and oranges.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Long-lasting and sweet with the taste of dry red fruits.

    Glencairn glass
    Nice, very solid whisky that I would have liked to have tasted without the PX maturation.

      Lots of sweetness, lots of vanilla, something earthy that fades away after 25 minutes and gives room to a light, sweet sherry flavor.
      Not as overfinished as other DoS, but probably not necessary given its age. Super round and balanced, even smells a bit like bourbon maturation behind the PX keg.
      More fruit with water. Maybe a bit unspectacular overall, but at the same time very tasty without being too clumsy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong start, then spreads out warm and is sweetish, mild with honey, vanilla, malt and caramel. Somewhat different from what the key data suggest.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length with a slight bitterness that doesn't fit 100%, but overall a nice mouthfeel.

  5. dominikbraun scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Floral, musty, spicy, in the taste fruity and waxy, oily, mineral. Surprisingly little PX influence.

  6. g00se scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Funny whisky. I don't think that's bad, especially the nose looks quite tempting at first. Then tips over at some point and does not really convince, especially from the back. The fruit flies are more into the whisky.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The color is old gold. After swirling in the glass, there is a razor-sharp edge, from which countless small tears slowly come off. Nice spectacle
      Odor, with standing time:
      Leathery, juicy-sweet, floral similar to Glenlivet. The alcohol is well integrated and the chocolate raisins and sour cherries emphasize the sherry character.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very floral and light. No off-notes or anything salient. Yes, a powerful start (50%), but no alcohol stinging. Good, but somehow meaningless. At some point it gets spicy for a short time, then bitter.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Here, too, very cautious.
      Unfortunately, the bitterness lasts a long time
