  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very strange, slightly unbalanced malt, hardly perceptible as an ex-sherry barrel.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Pattex-like glue note, then farther away from the glass mainly, very light apricot aromas.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Deliciously sweet, with some beeswax.
      Water only makes it flat and bitter.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Quickly gone and quite tart.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

      Thick, tightly knocked down, do not say that is diverse and rich in a palette of derivatives, but all that is very to the point, this he reminded me of Japanese whisky; sherry barrel does not appear immediately, opening after a while, a good balance, competent work with the fortress, in general, very well.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, woody-herbal notes, lemon zest, fruit salad, lacquer notes, eucalyptus, over time, appear dried fruits and mushroom motifs, fried nuts.
    • Taste
        Thick, saturated, spicy oak, varnish, young bark bitter, red pepper, burnt crackers, leavened wort.
    • Finish
      Dense, warming, medicinal herbs, mint, buckwheat honey, dried fruits.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very, very nice sherry keg selected, the Glen Elgin perfectly complements, especially great flavor too.
    • Nose
      Honey, "broth", raisins, rum barrel, lavender, grapefruit, oranges, leather notes, deep beautiful sherry
    • Taste
      Strong, spicy, plum, orange, orange peel, leather, beautiful spices such as nutmeg, tea, clear sherry, oak
    • Finish
      Long, orange with spice and sherry barrel stay behind

  8. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice thing, that shows that you should also go wild off the well-known distilleries.
    • Nose
      slight sulfur notes; dark apples and chocolate; dark forest honey; Vanilla along with spices; Sherry flavors, with time it gets sweeter and walnuts add to the spice becomes more intense; the alcohol is very well integrated
    • Taste
      creamy and amazingly soft for those over 50%; Chocolate and nuts; Corpse wort; Oak; Vanilla and honey
    • Finish
      medium; Oak, very nut-heavy; Chocolate, light bitterness, but sweetness clearly dominates; nice spice; with a little soap (but delicious); getting dry

  10. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A simple profile but I liked it and water is not needed,
    • Nose
      The nose is a little prickly on melted butter, faint honey, chopped almond, slight cardboard notes and some meat stew.
    • Taste
      Much better than the nose suggests actually on caramel, smoked ham & cheese (mainly the ham).

      It gets sweeter after a few minutes and it is syrupy sweetness and sugared almonds.
    • Finish
      Medium length with some milk chocolate notes
