  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I'd be happy if a friend offers me this, but I wouldn't soon buy a bottle.
    • Nose
      Hi Pedro (Ximénez)! Sour, copper coins, but strangely enough also lemon yoghurt. Make no mistake though, this is an over the top bomb. Hints of rum raisins, balsamic vinegar, crème de cassis and nougat. With some sulphur as well, if that's your thing. If you're into PX, you should probably buy this.
    • Taste
      Thick and syrupy mouthfeel. There's some interesting bright citrus notes behind the sherry attack. Milk chocolate and chili pepper, some pickled lemons too, as well balsamic and tablet.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of brown sugar and dates. Pretty long.

  2. LittlePeat scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nice sherry whisky with a round, not penetrating taste. Reminiscent of a Glendronach - only the cherry-sour note in the foreground and the light mushroom note in the background reveal the Edradour. Looks much older - only the (quite nice) finish is unfortunately much too short.

    So is this a sherrybomb? Definitely! And to be honest it's really too much. Its profile is like an overpowered old sherry with a big chunk of alcohol. Many sweetsour notes in the nose. Too much. The palate is better as it is more balanced. It's very complex though, but there is nothing Edradour to be found in it.

      Dried fruits at first. Raisins and dates. A note of very old sherry. Blackcurrant followed by a very clear note of balsamico vinegar. Very sour. Next a note of copper coins. It turns dark and roasty now with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee and cacao. A little hint of leather and cloves. At the end notes of syrup and glaced bacon.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Definitely a clear hint of old sherry complemented by raisins, dates and black cherries. There is even a note of coca cola in there. Sour notes, some like acid. Balsamico vinegar again and something like (AA) batteries. It turns roasty and spicy now. Notes of black coffee, dark chocolate and cacao too. At the end notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and red chili peppers to top it off.
    • Finish

      Medium-long. Sticky syrup and brown sugar. Some coffee, cacao and old oak.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This is clearly an over the top cask driven whisky. With this type of drams I'd indeed say: "wood makes the whisky". The level of influence on the final spirit is probably much more than 70% which seems to be an accepted average.

    To me, this is not a positive development. This feels like a young sherry on steroids rather than a whisky. If you are into sherry bombs, this could be your "ultimate" pick.

      This is a sherry bomb without any doubt. It lacks complexity and is all about the maturation. Sulphur (rotten eggs, fireworks), rum-soaked raisin, fudge, blackcurrant. There is some acidic smell that I can't fully pin point. I've read that some detect balsamic vinegar, but that smells more pleasant than this whisky in my opinion. I regard it as an off-note, just as the sulphur.
    • Taste
      81 81
      No distillery character as in the nose, but a bit better. The sulphur is not so present and there is balance between sweet and sour. Now more into balsamic acid, forest fruit, syrup.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Long, only a notch drying, but mainly still sweet and sour. Like eating pancakes with a lot of syrup.

      Smoke, wood, distillery character completely gone. Sherry all the way. it's like a glendronach with a little sourness. Tasty but also a pity

      Sour, bitter, short

  8. Falang scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Intriguing drink. In my opinion a typical Edradour. Very strong sherry influences with oranges, spices, wood. Nice - but very alcoholic and besides that maybe a bit flat. Especially the finish (disappointing).
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nose is a sherry and spice bomb! Alcohol prickle and some oranges with a hint of mentol. Very nice.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet, caramel and sherry… Hint of vinegar. Strong and oily, intense with some sourness (cherries?) and peppers. For sure some tobacco too! Warm and lovely but very strong! Rather dry… but great!
    • Finish
      78 78
      Kind of short, maybe a bit boring; the alcohol is still there… And it keeps on giving a warm feeling. Cake and grains (like cereal). Kind of sandy…

    A modern sherry bomb. The sherry completely overshadows the character of the distillery. Not a bad whisky but not worth the hype.
