  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    The best club bottle they ever had in ...!
    At the time for 40,00 € = fantastic!
    [Color] dark amber;
    • Nose
      a lot of sherry, sweetness, dark berries, spicy oak;
    • Taste
      very fruity onset (sherry bomb detonates on the palate), ripe fruit, mouth-filling, aromatic;
    • Finish
      long, soft, sherry-laden, dry finish;

    The nose reminds me a lot of a Glendronach Revival, and is ultimately the best part of this dram. It is only available in Germany though. Needless to say that I enjoyed it immensely and mid-range sherry drams coming from good casks are always a treat!
    • Nose
      There is a pungent sherry impact on the nose, coupled with mocha and dark chocolate. Additionally, one can find oak and wood spice. Overall it is very sweet and the associated fruits are rather dark, dried, and even overripe – such as raisins, alcohol-infused plums from your grandma’s rum-pot. Incredible nose!
    • Taste
      Packs a punch with tons of oak and sweet, sweet vanilla. The mouth feel is full and salivation is impressive.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. Creamy vanilla and oak tanins linger for quite a while.
