3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.37 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Apart from the somewhat musty nose, marginally off-note and already very peculiar, a really great whisky.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, musty, orange peel, fizzy sticks, of course peat too, but rather subtle and well integrated. Kind of spicy, umami.
    • Taste
      very nice, herbaceous, peaty, sweetly spicy, the peat is present, but integrated, the herbaceous spice, the thoroughly strong sweetness and a touch of bitterness from the wood.
    • Finish
      That also applies to the finish. That brings nice herbaceous wood notes and a certain bitterness, but here only a little sweetness.

    Enjoyment Booster Tasting - Scotch Universe - 2021/4
    Hydra III (Glenturret), 9y, FF Amontillado, 60.1%

    Color: yellow gold
    Nose: clearly alcohol, "dirty" sherry nose, nut aromas, yellow fruits, ash
    Body: medium / oily
    Mouth: noticeably alcohol, nuts, marzipan, overripe fruits, tea, roasted aromas
    Finish: medium / long, mild, dried fruit, slightly bitter, dry wood aromas and ash
    Conclusion: 85P, "dirty" Sherry Cask Dram in a positive sense, with clear nut flavors (from the Amontillado Cask) and a lot of peat
