  1. robbert88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    With 2 drops of water it becomes even more beautiful. More leather in the nose and old wood great round and soft. Now it is really going to be a phenomenal whisky.
    • Nose
      lots of vanilla, some coffee, not sharp on the nose at all for the high abv, sherry,
    • Taste
      Wow so sweet right away and your mouth will dry from the sherry right away. Sweet tutti frutti, some cherries, raisins, vanilla sticks, a little leather at the end. Surprisingly easy to drink even without water.
    • Finish
      wood, sherry, nuts, leather, pepper

    Soft Sherry Syrup! Great, I would recommend and repeat myself.
    • Nose

      Plum syrup, perfume, sherry aroma. Ripe fruit, hint of vanilla. The freshness of Italian lemon.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The taste is syrupy, oily. Very nice as the 61.2 Abv is not strong or sharp, beautifully integrated alcohol. Dried brown apples. A little of Maldon quality salt. Anise is felt from a great distance, a little bitterness. Notes of sherry barrels and oak barrels at taste. Light leather aroma and also very soft taste.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Dries fast enough, soft, chocolate bitterness remains.

    Typical intense and sherried whisky. Pleasant red fruits, prunes, but it has overwhelmed the original distillery profile: This could be anything, no trace of Strathmill left.
    • Nose

      Fruity, red fruits, prunes,berries,quite some alcohol. Blue berry. Full scent.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful, intense, a bit drying mouthfeel. Red fruits, prunes, berries. Thick structure,
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still some power, red fruits, prunes. Still some drying mouthfeel, some sour edge. Pretty long. Woody.
