  1. Holle525 scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    A great whisky of good age. Very well integrated alcohol but with a lot of pepper. Dark fruits, a nice note of sherry and a bit of wood, which is integrated very well into the overall impression. Long finish.

  2. Vmarcinv scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A hit of sherry, dried fruit, suddenly there is raspberry jam, notes of wild rose, notes of varnish, overripe figs, after a while bitter coffee chocolate and it's all on the nose. The taste is oily, creamy, sweet, followed by dryness, leather, tobacco and light peppercorn. Finish LOOONG, washed sherry wood goes on and on, dried fruit, plums with walnut peel!
    With water more red fruits, a bit more leather.

    Teaninich 21 yo 1982/2004 (62.3%, The Bottlers, refill sherry butt, cask #7202)

    Colour: full amber.

    Nose: wow, extremely sherried for a refill cask! Are they sure it’s a refill? Lots of coffee, rum and cooked fruit with, again, some very bold minty notes – it’s almost overwhelming. Tell me about a sherry monster! Notes of salted liquorice, rubbed orange skin, turpentine, a little camphor, eucalyptus (Vicks)… And maybe faint hints of ammoniac. Something odd here, but again it’s an interesting whisky.

    Mouth: extremely creamy, starting sort of similarly, on ultra-bold notes of liquorice and mint mixed with dried fruits and caramel. Lots of cough syrup, salmiak again, dried plums, pipe tobacco again… Not lace, that’s for sure. Almost monstrously liquoricy! Goes on on fruitcake, strong herbal tea, mint drops (again!) Now it gets a little hard to enjoy, probably too extreme for my tastes… And the finish gets a little bitter, at that. Well, it’s an interesting one again but I feel it’s got less ‘charms’ than the ‘Exclusive Malt’.

    83 points.

    Nose: A nose you could sneak in for hours! Finest nut liqueur with notes of the best nutmeg, oranges and plums - pure harmony. Spicy yes, but without any tips. Leather, fruity sherry and honey-rich vanilla - not too sweet and not too tart. Now with floor wax and tobacco to finish - just delicious!
    Taste: Sherry - absolutely powerful, sweet sherry! Oranges, salt ... no, tons of salt! Become bitter with wood, liquorice, gingerbread, herbs and dark fruits (plums) towards the finish.
    Finish: Long, really long, dark - and bitter! Extreme wood notes, licorice and a suppressed melange of plum and sherry. All sweetness is now dragged on, and there is "dark bitterness"!

  7. art-bett scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    COLOR: dark mahogany

    NOSE: furniture polish, chestnut lacquer, caramel in the sense of roasted almonds,
    Sherry paired with ground coffee beans, a perfect nasal flair

    TASTE: sweet fat sherry, brandy beans, Mon Cheri, gingerbread
    At the Christmas market, they merge into a very pleasant creaminess in the mouth

    Departure: the clenched sherry lingers in the mouth for a long time, Christmas spices scream for more .....

    CONCLUSION: Very big cinema, a top bottling is not really behind
    Sherry grenades 20 or 25 years older than old Strathislas or Longmorns
    has to hide.
    On the contrary !!

  9. Sonett scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    With this impressive nose and taste it is hard to believe that it is a refill cask. This is a fantastic whisky
    • Nose
      Impressive nose of heavy sherry tones. Dark fruits like Dates, Figs, Raisins, dried plums. There is also sugar canes, molasses, rubber and a vague nutty tendency.
    • Taste
      Enters warm and sweet, then turning over to a spicy slightly peppery taste of dates, figs and raisins
    • Finish
      A long finish with a taste of walnut bitterness with oaky sherry tones going towards a drying final
