  3. maltaholic scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Really good!
    • Nose
      Very dark color, very appetizing.
      The first impression is very good. Fruity, rosy, floral, but strong! Grapes, raisins, a touch of glue. Was he actually in the sherry barrel?
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity in taste - and wow! - very strong. Pfaumenkompott, cloves, ... with time getting spicier.
    • Finish
      Very long, fruity and spicy finish. My tongue is furry ...

  5. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Complex and delicious.
    • Nose
      Sublime, liquoreux, net influence of sherry, red fruits, candied oranges, some spices, honeyed wax, some floral notes.

      With water: more "picotant"
    • Taste
      Powerful but mellow, lots of fruit (oranges, blackcurrant, apricot), a little bitterness (gentian), salt and spices (chilli), precious woods, some green notes.

      With water: brings out the fruit, honey.
    • Finish
      Very long, caramel, persistent bitterness on the tongue.

  6. corbuso scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    An atypical Dalwhinnie with a rich and intense spicy sherry influence, without any rubbery offnote. A most pleasant whisky

  7. Feusi scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Spicy sweetness with a little smoke. Very dry, almost like drinking a dry white wine. With a few drops of water Water the sweet honey-like notes are better revealed. In my opinion, a poor price / performance ratio.
