    Best blend I've tried. Nice sherry notes reminiscent of Macallan. A wonderfully rounded whiskey to dream of!

    Aaaah that's it! Sherry storage as it should be! Not an atom of sulfur ... where does this barrel come from?
    Please do not expect Glendronach-Sherry-monster-style, you are wrong here ...

    I suppose it was a second or third fill sherry hogshead. Despite the age, the nose is still fresh and herbaceous with a little mint, tobacco and furniture polish. Pleasant sweetie, was there still Paxarette involved ...? No matter...
    The drop is just fun. The wood is clearly noticeable but not annoying, which I like very much and adds a little bit of smoke to the whole thing.

    Wow, I have no idea how Dully found so much good material with all his first barrels (88 Fettercairn, 54y.o. Cognac) and at the price.
    My respect!

    Ich denke Serge hat in diesem Fall recht, es ist kein Grain in diesem Blend.

    Blended Scotch Whisky 38 yo 1980/2020 (48.6%, C Dully Selection, cask #23, sherry hogshead, 230 bottles)
    This is one of these ex-Edrington ‘blended whisky’ casks that rarely seem to taste like actual blends… Colour: brownish amber. Nose: deep, raisiny and rather luscious with these thick notes of tobacco, walnut oil, treacle and various dark fruit jams and chutneys. Evolves along these rather thick, earthy lines with quite a bit of hessian and leather. Pretty superb! Mouth: nice arrival, all on rancio. treacle, cloves, spiced fig jam, mulling spices and walnut liqueur. If you like old school sherry then this will tickle your boat no doubt. There’s a thickness of texture and an earthiness that I find extremely satisfying. Finish: medium with figs, sultanas, more tobacco, leaf mulch, hessian and rancio. Comments: I couldn’t detect one iota of grain whisky in this. Make of that what you will. Either way, this is a rather simple but direct and excellent old school sherried dram. No doubt it will be pestering a few tumblers this Winter.
    SGP: 661 - 89 points.

    much too much grain in it, on the second sip getting more and more bitter. Have you 90+ raters ever tried it?

    Especially on the price range, this is not a winner.
