  8. m884 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Oloroso sherry, wood glue, oak, chestnuts, curry spices, oranges, cinnamon, with water hazelnut

    Mouth: Sherry, oak christmas spices, raisins

    Finish: Warm, sherry, candy-sherry, medium-long long

    Comment: great sherry bomb, excellent! Not too complex in a way - but flawless for what it is

  9. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    N: raisins, chocolate, oily, wood smoke, syrup, dried fruits and spicy - nutmeg
    T: very bitter, spicy, dark chocolate, coffee, creamy and tobacco
    F: bitter, orange, floral and later raisins
    compared with Bunnahabhain 21 of Sansibar 48%
    great nose!

  10. I_SPEY scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky, with  cacao(!), apricots, sherry and caramel-like. Then the taste is rather the same, but - of course - a lot stronger! But with four drops of water the whisky becomes more gentle, easier, nicer. The finish is long.

  13. aby scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    nose: dark chocolate, sherry, dark coffee, caramel and a bit of earth/offkey

    taste: thick sherry, perfect bunna (like cs dram 21520), you can`t taste that this whisky is 21 years old

    finish: medium - long

    This could go as a GD as well.sample available on: whiskysample.nl

    Received my bottle today... Anybody opened it...?

  15. hsmithjr did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I am excited that I have a couple bottles of the Burns Malt, so I can keep the WB bottle for show.   

    Who is the bottler?

  16. Bachess did not rate this whisky Administrator

    True, it`s the same cask, but we are not allowed to name the distillery name on the label.
