Glennie gave this whisky 90 points

Nose: A significant cask influence. Vanilla from the American oak. A slight hint of leather. Some chocolate and fresh espresso. A touch of coconut and some dried fruit like sultanas and figs. Muscovado sugar and some baking spices.

Palate: Crème brule with sweet vanilla crème and brown caramelized sugar. Baking spices again. Cinnamon is present. Hints of dried fruits and oranges.

Finish : Sweet and spicy. Coffee and chocolate and dried fruits. Medium length.

The use of American oak for the sherry casks is successful here. An elegant heavily sherried dram. But there is no dominant dry bitterness. That makes it a pleasure all the way. It is very much a modern designed dram. That is not always good, but here it is quite successful albeit a little too well behaved.

It is expensive, but for 110 – 130 euros it definitely is worth the money.

Nose:
This is light, delicate, but very good! Wood, oak, chocolate, leather and wood wax. There is also a fresh note here. Some vanilla and citrus. But straight after the fresh note there are these wood shavings again.

Taste:
Wooohw! this is really great. It gives nice and subtle sherry notes, a burst of red fruit, followed by dark chocolate notes. Very very well made.

Body:
That could have been thicker and more oily, though.

Finish:
medium length. Again quite a lot of chocolate and a hint of red fruit again. Fades away a bit dry and with a sour and wood note. All in all quite pleasing.

Price:
This was a sample, but will buy a bottle

Presentation:
I've seen it, stunningly packed.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Very woody with hints of bitter chocolate, espresso and ground coffee as well as ginger, vanilla and coconut. It also contains some fruity notes like dried prunes and raisins. After a good minute or so some peppermint notes were reaching the surface.

Taste

The woodiness continues in the palate as well. Cinnamon and vanilla from the American oak and also some bourbon vanilla is noticeable. It's not all heavy because it goes into some fruity flavors, reminding me of blood oranges.

Finish

The finish is grassy, like dries hops but also menthol. Still woody as well, noticeable dark chocolate ad ground coffee. Still some fruitiness as well, the blood oranges are still present in the finish.

Coffeed whisky! I really like that It's 'dark' without a dominant sherry-influence, and retaining the fruity glenmorangie character at the same time.
