  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    I don't need it again, every liqueur is more intense
    • Nose
      slightly tart sherry, cocoa, gummy bears, raspberry, slightly floral, mint, vanilla, the nose is very pleasing
    • Taste
      extremely watery, boa, seldom drunk something thin, a little sherry, slightly chocolaty, a little vanilla, hint of raisins, sour, but the mouthfeel is like American iced tea, doesn't work at all
    • Finish
      slightly sour, apple, slightly sweet, medium length

  3. Kilo1 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    For me, too simple a creamy slightly malty marsh. But the whisky is of high quality.

    Uncomplicated, light whisky with little barrel influence and wood. The sherry character is very restrained, there is a lot of American oak here.
    I would not want to pay more than 30 € for it.

    Blind tasting:
    Dried fruits, a hint of leather, apple, dried. Apricot, black tea
    Mouth: strong onset, intense spice, dried fruit, pronounced sherry character with no peculiarities
    Finish: quite bitter in the direction of grapefruit, starting in the second sip with chocolate, sweetened cay, a bittersweet feeling remains
    Conclusion: Tip: Glenfarclas 10 / 12yo neat, but a bit simple, a few% 79/100 are missing
