  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    16 years old, PX barrel (50 to 60 years of impregnation) here is the technical side if one can say.
    • Nose
      Cognac, Armagnac?
      Coffee, chocolate, caramel, stewed and candied fruit afterwards
      the 'famous' mold that I find, soft, velvety, the nut crushed in the background, dry and soaked wood!
      dusty peppery spices, a vegetal return on the sap, cereal, vanilla cooked there!
    • Taste
      soft, velvety, sherry takes its place here:
      red and orange fruits on sour cherry, candied orange peel, dried fruits, nut shells and slightly wet crushed almonds,
      the breadcrumbs with the cinnamon intervene suddenly giving more diffuse scents.
      the grilled, toasted cereal, the caramel and dark chocolate which reappear, coffee grounds too
      finish on bitter almond shell and sulfur.
    • Finish
      the abv. can leave on the end too small in my opinion; it's sherry, oaky, caramelized, syrupy, musty (noble) but the finish is just crystal clear and sublime with sherry, dark chocolate, mold, infused and dried mint leaf; white pepper and tobacco then occur with the vanilla bean which falls to the teeth (after having been shelled with a knife) and the coffee extract
      in short, simple but ideal for a night out.

  2. DramTimeDE scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A lot of Sulphur in the nose. i’m ok with that, but sensible palettes, will not be able to enjoy as much.
    very mouthcoating, not aggresive at all. you can chew for minutes if you want.
    delicious light oak, sweet finish, long lasting and typical MC

    higher abv would be interesting
