    Promising on the nose despite the slight sulphury note, a little bit disappointing on the palate and the finish
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry, leather boots, dried fruits, dark chocolate, hints of toffee
    • Taste
      Punchy, very old wood, leathery, cardboard, peppery, spices, dark fruits
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, a tad bitter in the end

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The dominance of red wine in all components, the basis is crushed, much sweetness, Glengoin left such an unconventional one, I do not even know who to recommend - to fans of a combination of red wine, syrup and whisky? In the rest, everything turned out well, a large enough fortress is perfectly inscribed in all the components, non-spirituous, a drink, well balanced.
    • Nose
      Wine notes with tart oak tones, cherry, cherry beer, nuts, baklava, churchchel, cake "Anthill", mahogany, dried apricots.
    • Taste
      Oak, soaked in red wine with the addition of a decent amount of sugar, ginger.
    • Finish
      Light ginger burning, wine tones, creamy biscuits, melted milk, light oak bitterness.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    If I had tasted this one blindly, I could have mistaken it for a PX sherry cask. 89.5 points I'd say ;-) Warmly recommended!
    • Nose
      Dark cherry, prune, mocha, raisin, blackberry, toffee, date and cinnamon. With water it starts giving the impression of an aged port.
    • Taste
      Dark cherry, prune, mocha, toffee, dark chocolate, fudge, raisin and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, mocha, blackberry, cranberry, liquorice and a little whiff of eucalyptus.

  10. Feusi scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sherry notes with intensive wood. The first sip makes clear impression, but is not for everyone. It`s really nice and even so poerfull. Sherry notes with spicy bitter but well intensive wood, wow, maybe a bomb, but not for everyday.
