    A stunner dram. A piece of art
    • Nose
      What a lovely sherry. Teak oil. Dried fruits. Cardamom. Leather. Chocolate. Very fruity. 
    • Taste
      Dried fruits continue. A tad dry. Spicy. Some burnt sherry notes. Strawberry. Plums. Oranges 
    • Finish
      Dry. Teak oil. Dried fruits of course. More jammy now. Liquerice. Cloves. Sweet orange.

  5. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    A big boy sherried whisky, but considering its status and price, I was a bit surprised that it is not more complex. Very, very good no doubt with superb balance, but I was hoping for old rancio or old books and did not find them in this one. A straightforward great sherry bomb. 

  6. checkpointuk scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=261 Color: Amontillado / Madeira Sherry Nose: Immediately starts a wave of flavor and leaves hardly time to write; dry sherry, currants, apricots, tobacco, maggie seasoning, balsamic, leather, straw, coffee beans and aromas of coffee cream. Class! Taste: Heavy diet with notes of old sherry casks, humidor, red cherries and berries, elderberry, rum punch, leather, wood, furniture stain, wooden boards, orange peel and a handful of herbs. Finish: Long - but also quite tart. Jam, wood, blueberries, elderberry, some honey and dark chocolate. 92 points (nose: 94 / taste: 92 / finish: 90)

    An excellent scotch - the right thing for a cold winter day - worth every penny!
    • Nose
      Almost everything has been said already but it's indeed very intense, dried fruits, sweet raisins, meaty, chocolate, pipe tobacco, hints of oak, toffee, coffee and so on - it's neverending
    • Taste
      Wow, what a sticky sweet thing this is - still punchy and powerful but creamy and mellow at the same time. Nice dried fruits, plums, cloves, gingerbread, chocolate, cinnamon, rum and sherry - Superb!

      With water it gets more of citrus fruits, cooked oranges, milk chocolate and much more.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, still sweet and fruity - Great!

    Tasting Notes from WhiskyNotes.be :

    Nose: oh my, this is great. Very aromatic
    and deeply fruity. Strawberries, raspberries, cherries, dried prunes,
    apricot jam… Cinnamon and brown candy sugar. A slightly oriental spicy
    note. A lot of oak too, but a very silky, polished type which is a huge
    asset here. Plenty of cigar boxes and sandalwood. Makes me think of old
    sherried Longmorn or Strathisla, but also of rums and old bourbon
    whisky. Mouth: very thick, very sherried. Rum & raisins galore.
    Deep fruity notes again: rhubarb stew, plums, bags of figs, raspberry
    jam and a slightly exotic hint of banana flambéed. Then back to candy
    sugar, cinnamon, honey, a little mint and crystallized ginger. A few
    nutty notes too. Again traces of high-end rum or cognac. Finish: very
    long, still fruity, but also showing a soft herbal bitterness and
    chocolate. Perfect amount of oak.
    A wonderfully elegant Glengoyne and one of the best recent bottlings
    I’ve tried altogether. A sherry masterpiece with some old-style
    elements, juicy fruits, lots of oomph and no dryness at all – a rare
    diamond indeed. Around € 300.

  10. autowatch092 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Chestnut
    Nose: Ripe dark berries, sandalwood, hints of cigar tobacoo and leather, some cardamom and burnt sugar.
    Palate: Forest berry compote, orange zest, prunes, strong rancio notes, minimal hints of beef stock, cardamom, nutmeg and allspice.
    Finish: Very long, very fruity and very slightly spicy.
    Overall: The tasting notes just scratch the surface, there are layers upon layers of aromas and flavours in this fantastic old whisky.
