  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Unfortunately, it didn't pick me up that way either. It also looks a bit fake. In direct comparison to 144263
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Dark amber

      Nose:
      Kinda starts fresh. Then a reminder of Sauerbraten. Meaty and sour gravy. Raisins, dates, caramel. Here, too, a slightly chemical note. citrus and floral. Slightly waxy and more leather.
    • Taste
      Dry, spicy attack. Then a slightly fake sweetness. Fresh wood, bitterness and fresh sour cherries.
      More floral bitterness on the second sip. Meaty here too. In addition, wild berry tea that has been steeped too long.
    • Finish
      Longing. Dark sweetness with plenty of bitterness.

  11. Bene37 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sticky-sweet, syrup, dried fruits (dates and figs), some milk coffee, slightly nutty, brown sugar, perfume note, some blood orange

    Palate: sweet, slightly alcoholic bite, somewhat dry, coffee with milk, blood orange, dried fruits, perfume note, hints of nuts

    Finish: round, medium-long, warm, slightly sticky sweetness, some blood orange

    Conclusion: too sweet for me personally, but the barrel did a great job here. If you like sherry and sweetness, you don't go wrong here, but for me Dailuaine goes better with bourbon, the spirit in this case no longer comes to 6/10 or 87/100 against the barrel

  12. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Looks like a rebottling/relabeling of this one:
