  6. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A huge dram! The typical sherry flavours shine through all the way with
    great elegance and complexity. This is a well-balanced whisky not
    overpowered by the wood. A fantastic and extraordinary dram to sip and
    relax. Perfect!

    • Nose
      Wow! This is very elegant and smooth with classic sherry influences, a
      lovely potpourri of dark ripe fruits, rum soaked raisins, dates and
      figs, Demerara sugar, and Christmas cake.
      A dense, luscious, and nutty nose which is very savoury and attractive.
    • Taste
      A massive hit of sweet candy, red fruit, dates and dark cherries,
      complemented by Demerara sugar and rich orange. Dark bitter chocolate
      flavours emerge which align perfectly with lingering walnuts, a subtle
      herbal note, maybe juniper, and gentle oak. A bold and intense palate.
    • Finish
      A long and warm finish with plenty of liquorice. Gets drier in the end
      with strong espresso tones, oak wood and lingering walnut. Very pleasant
      and mouth-coating!

      WITH WATER: There's more creaminess on the nose
      with lots of sherry and ripe dark fruit. The huge and hot palate is
      tamed slightly with water. The finish is long and still warm with a
      lingering nuttiness. Dangerously quaffable.

    Single dram note. Coepenicker Whisky Herbst 2012
    • Nose
      sweet, dry, sour, juniperberries (86)
    • Taste
      liquor-esque, sherry, dried fruits, oak in bitter-sweet-dry balance (88)
    • Finish
      alc becomes a bit too dominant w the dryness, sherry & dried fruits behind, anaesthetic. (84)
