  1. whiskydramo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Bottled in 2021 - Fruitier and easier to drink than its predecessors.
    • Nose

      Strengthening walnuts, kinder chocolate, especially the hazelnut filling. Dried tea leaves, yellow pomelo, apples, fresh oranges, red seedless grapes and a bit of maple syrup. Enjoyable but it's got a slow start for the aromas to open up. In fact, it became a lot fresher after a sip.

      Fruity with the milk chocolate. Chocolate richened for a short while. Plums, apricots, seedless grapes, caramel tarts. It's mellow and delicious.
    • Finish

      Orange tart, coffee, black bean paste, roasted vanilla, plums and very thin and powdery tannins.

    Heavenly!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Complex nose with aromas of chocolate. A delicious blend of dark fruit, blackberries and red plums with rich aromas of oloroso sherry and candied orange. Sweet with soft herbs and oak, wax.

    Color: rice wine, light soy sauce.
    Smell: At first what seems to be a little saltiness from smoky bacon is almost completely masked by herbal tea, ebony, candied dates, and a generous amount of caramel sauce over the fire. The mix of sweetness has the punch of a punch, but with too much punch it starts to feel bitter, similar to the juice squeezed out of a lemon peel.
    Drinking: The suppression of alcohol sense is still good. Depressed sweetness, red and black. Candied fruit, sweetness of jujube tea; spice notes leaning towards cinnamon and bay leaf; bitterness of aged wood and americano.
    End rhyme: Just swallowed, there will be a little smoky feeling. Although the end rhyme is long, it is mainly the bitterness of wood and grape skin, and then there will be a little Chinese medicine flavor. On the whole, there is a clear sense of great sweetness + medicinal stew.
    A 25 or 26 year old wine in theory, good complexity, overpowering alcohol, long finish - but I don't like the flavor, tired, depressed. Maybe this style of Shirley (heavy Shirley? Dirty Shirley?) is really not suitable for me.

    Great whisky, but not as good as the older bottlings from 2015, for example. Unfortunately, the price has increased significantly, but for me the taste has dropped a little bit.
