Expert Senior Donwaldorf Tasting note
10 Feb 2017 7:39 am
Donwaldorf gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Tawny
Nose

On est clairement sur du Sherry, entre un A’bunadh et un Glendro. On y retrouve de la mirabelle, quelques fleurs, des fruits éxotiques et même une très légère fumée. Nous restons quand même sur un Whisky marqué Sherry, très “vineux” et souffré.

Taste

Une attaque puissante, agressive... cela manque de finesse. Ensuite toujours avec ce côté Sherry Bomb on retrouve les épices, le poivre et le boisé du chêne. La fin de bouche est plus légère et huileuse. 

Finish

On est sur du boisé avec encore et toujours les épices qui s’entremêlent sans vraiment trouver leur place. Ensuite arrive le café qui reste en bouche. What Else ?

Comments

C’est un Sherry Bomb, on ne peut pas se tromper. Mais il est trop brut, trop peu plaisant... difficile de se faire une place face à des “rivaux” d’un autre level type A’bunadh surtout sur des prix parfois moins elevé.

I am usually not a huge fan of the Sherry Bombs, but this was a really pleasant surprise.

Lots of sherry on the nose, but not the sickly sweaty pungent pinch that usually follows the big sherries. I get the christmas feeling and oh joy what a feeling.
Big ABV but still carries nicely neat. There are raisins, plums, figs, cinnamon and strangely some peaches out there. Round and velvety. Leaves me wanting more.
Nice full balanced finish.

Nose: we’re in big sherry land here. Colour reveals it but the nose is screaming : first fill. Sherry. Getting sulphur too, spice and a certain caramel feeling old school caramel candy.

Palate: boom! That’s some huge sherry here. abv. 55% and up if I’m not mistaken. Lots of sugar , rum soaked cherries , sultanas. Again sulphur and big XMAS cake feeling. Pepper and clove. Love that.

Finish: Dried fruit with bitter notes of espresso and wood. Cherries. And cigar leaves.

Color
Tawny
Nose

At first a bit gluey and sulphury. The hearty smells subside after a while and the sulphury smell, while still present in the background, is balanced out by whiffs of blackcurrant, caramel and dried orange peel.

Taste

Sweet, very oily and intense, but a bit sharp initially. Sherry obviously. Spices like cinnamon and cloves.

Finish

The spices last in a long and subtle and very tasty finish with a hint of licorice.

Comments

Based on a blind sample. Great finish, but nose and taste are a bit too hearty for my tastes. Still a solid sherried whisky.

Color
Tawny
Nose

An obvious sweet sherry influence with fudge, caramel, chocolate , dried red fruitsand cherry flavored candy canes. It has a spicy edge with cumin and nutmeg. There's also a dusty quality and a slight copper smell.

Taste

Spicy and fiery. Black pepper and nettle. The palate is a bit dry and there are some oak flavors. Dark bitter chocolate. Not much of the sweetness left, maybe some strawberry.

Finish

Long, sweet. Some milk chocolate, spicy and something sour.

Comments

New notes, but this time from a blind tasting. Didn't like it as much as I did earlier this year. I changed my rating to 87 instead of 89.
