  1. zaphod155 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Old single grains from sherry casks can be really nice whiskeys, as this full, complex bottling proves. The Lowland whiskey shows a nice interplay with the wood and the sherry.
    • Nose
      Clear, sweet grain notes with equally clear sherry aromas. Nuts and caramel, with honey, spicy oak and some chocolate. The alcohol is only noticeable in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and Creamy. Clear sherry with plums, apricots and nuts. Pleasant flavor, both from wood and from spices such as cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans add to the bouquet.
    • Finish
      Sweet, spicy and warming aftertaste that doesn't want to end.

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

    A great, rich and complex single grain whisky from the Lowlands. Orange fruit meets sherry, chocolate and warming Christmas spices. Single Grain, Sherry Butt and Douglas Laing - nothing can go wrong with such a combination!

    I thank deinwhisky.de for the complimentary sample!

    • Nose
      Immediately notes of aged sherry flow into the nose, accompanied by honey, oranges and caramel. Accompanied by some blueberry, oranges and dark chocolate with spicy oak, some cinnamon and a touch of walnut in the background. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      Deliciously sweet on the palate with sherry, creamy honey, some blueberries and juicy oranges. This is accompanied by warming notes of Christmas spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting and pleasantly warming with oak spice, ginger and nutmeg. With a light note of orange peel and walnuts towards the end.

      With water: After adding a few drops of water, a little more freshness on the nose with juicy oranges, honey, oak spice and orange zest. Hazelnut and milk chocolate in the background. Still sweet on the palate with brown sugar, honey, biscuit and milk chocolate. Accompanied by slightly warming spices with ginger and some cinnamon. The finish is still long and slightly tingling with orange peel, nutmeg and creamy chocolate.

    sweet but also very spicy. The single grain is just a lot of fun due to the refill sherry barrel maturation. There's pepper in the whiskey. Quite complex, but drinkable, you can tell the age, but it is not a hindrance. A very successful single grain for me.
    • Nose
      First a few typical grain aromas, a little coconut, a little glue, but the nutty sherry with beautiful dried fruits comes into play immediately, sweet, but then rather spicy with a cigar box and grandma’s spice cupboard.
    • Taste
      sweet and velvety despite cask strength, but anything but tame. Sure, the expected sweet notes of the grain with vanilla and wood, but the beautiful notes of oak and dried fruits fill the mouth.
    • Finish
      astonishingly oaky, tart, dark chocolate, but also the sweeter nuances of sherry and raisins, plus clear notes of grain whiskey.

    A strong, intensely matured single grain. Fits perfectly in the run-up to Christmas.
    • Nose
      Cinnamon, burnt sugar, plums, Christmas flavors, nuts, honey.

      Sweet. Malty, lots of grain. Caramel. Toasted oak. Dark chocolate. Nutmeg. Pleasant fur on the tongue from the oak tannins.
    • Finish
      Spicy. Fine dry. Ginger. White pepper.
