hs305 gave this whisky 90 points

[October, 2005]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 76,50 Euro in September, 2009.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a fantastically rich sherry-driven blend.

There is no accounting for taste...

T- Balance, sticky dried fruits, heavy.

F- .....Can't remember...happy ending with this after 7 wee drams from the barrels ....

— at Warehouse No.9, Springbank

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 91 points

Definitely sherry colored and obviously old. In my opinion, it's very difficult to fake age in both the nose and the palate. I gave this one a solid 91, which is surprising for a blend. As good, if not better, than many older Glen Grants or Strathisla. The 50% ABV is a big plus. Impressive.

Nose

Tohle že je blend?! Neskutečně bohatá a plná vůně. Rozinky, čokoláda, mocné sherry, až trochu sametově kožená. Do toho i kořenitě pichlavá, skořicově nasládlá. Čichové orgie, žádná jiná whisky mi na letošním festivalu nevoněla lépe. (92 b)

Taste

Čokoláda, rozinky, sherry vliv, plná a hřejivá chuť, s kůží, skořicí a marcipánem. (88 b)

Comments

Neuvěřitelné, co se firmě Duncan Taylor povedlo stvořit za skvostný blend. Snad jen z ceny a dostupnosti jsem smutný, o to jsem vděčnější, že jsem mohl na Whiskyfestivalu 2014 ochutnat. Pro mě jeden ze dvou vrcholů celého festivalu. Kdo nezkusil, neuvěří.

Connoisseur GlenSikkes Note

This special blend is a marriage of the

finest single malt and single grain whiskies

produced in Scotland. The whiskies were

vatted together in the 1970s very soon

after distillation and matured in sherry

casks for a minimum 30 years resulting

in this deluxe premium rare blend.

Nose

Wauw, is this a blend? What a great nose! I have lots of sherry, raisins, coffee, chocolate, sweet spices, leather and tobacco.

Taste

Relatively soft and creamy mouthfeel. Very pleasant. Sherry, cinnamon, chocolate and that lovely oakiness from to casks. Like that.

Finish

Long finish with hints of caramel, red fruits and more spices. Some pepper on the tongue.

Comments

Top notch blend!!

Color
Auburn
Nose

Prune, dark cherry, raisin, milk chocolate, caramel, marzipan, date, stewed fruits, orange, red apple, vanilla, mint (which I normally only taste in whisky from bourbon casks), cinnamon, ash and nutmeg. A very complex nose for a blend.

Taste

Dark cherry, prune, raisin, milk chocolate, caramel, orange, nutmeg, pepper, marzipan and salt. There's some resemblance to a vintage port as well.

Finish

Raisins, cherry, milk chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, marzipan and a slight dustiness. 

Comments

Superb blend.
