    Very powerful nose in prunes and sherry. Intense palate marked by a sweet sherry, but not too much. Finale supported by a beautiful chocolate note. Not many different flavors but all very intense! I did not even bother adding water so it was so satisfying. (And yet it should have)

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    2 great whiskys at a fair price, as usual with a'bunadh, the 44 liked me personally a little better. (44 - remainder from about 1 year open bottle, 50 - fresh opened)
    • Nose
      Direct Comparison Batch 44 vs: Batch 50:
      both very strong (get some water), spicy, a lot of oak, earthy, 44 a little sharper, cinnamon, juicy red berries, 50 closed, then sweeter, more dried fruit, gingerbread ... after a long time both show light acidity
    • Taste
      both strong and full-bodied, dark-sweet, molasses, sugar beet syrup, dark chocolate, 44 dark, bitter, but also tart, dark fruit notes (redcurrant, plum jam), tobacco, 50 appears creamier and milder overall (also nougat, toffee, Latte)
    • Finish
      both long, bittersweet, cocoa, pepper, 44 a little spicier, 50 a bit creamier

  9. hartist scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's not really my type of whisky, but I must admit that it is very well done (and not too expensive).
    • Nose
      Strongly marked by sherry with a "dark" side: sweet exhalations of stone fruits (cherries, plums), citrus fruits (oranges and blood oranges), spices (sweet pepper, cinnamon) and sweeter fragrances ( vanilla, sweet almond paste).
    • Taste
      The palate is creamy and quite sweet despite the degree of alcohol. The classic notes of a sherry cask are summoned here: candied oranges, jammy fruits, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), caramelized dried fruits, roasted seeds (coffee, cocoa). More "crystalline" notes of acidulated herbal sweets (the unpronounceable name of the pub !!) are a happy and harmonious marriage.
    • Finish
      Long, rich and hot on a kind of complex compote of spicy red fruits and caramelized.
