    Not quite as good as the first two Hydra. However, I am very happy that I did take a break while tasting it. It was much better on the second try. I would say the oxygen helps a lot!

    Full review in a session of five Highland region whisky:

  4. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I just like Glenturret ...
    • Nose
      Light amber

      Starts out very musty and pleasantly smoky maritime. Dry leather and gooseberries. Actually smells very earthy and slightly dirty. In addition, a bit of freshly oiled wood and a dry herb note.
      With a little time in the glass, the colleague looks meatier. Juniper berries, gravy and dark cherries. Mocha and dark chocolate join in. In the background there is a fresh note that sticks out from time to time. The alcohol holds back quite well in proportion.
    • Taste
      Strong, spicy start. Here now nice pepper and rosemary. In addition, this beautiful, sweet smoky note. Which then develops a bit tart. Also very earthy in taste. The chocolate is now rather sweet.
      Brim second sip very meaty and nicely spicy. Some limes and malt candy. A little sweetened espresso and olive oil. The taste of the colleague is actually not very fruity. A dark berry aroma lies rather far behind. The alcohol is of course noticeable in between. I just like it that way.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Spicy smoky. Then earthy again. Before it ends sweet, malty.

  5. Don Cassi scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts out sweet and creamy, at first I only notice smoke very cautiously. With light herbs, reminds me of Highland Park. The alcohol is well integrated.

    Sweet and sour in the mouth and very full.

    The finish reminds me completely of HP: light campfire smoke, chocolate, a little apricot.
    Length: 5/10

    Great intense Highlander, which could also pass as island whisky.
    Probably a glenturret.

    Grade: 2+

  7. 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
