  7. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    There is not much to say here: this is how one imagines an old sherry-barrel dominated malt. If you are looking for this, you will undoubtedly be offered this. I like it very much.
    • Nose
      A fierce old sherry load immediately hits the nose, cognac, sherry, rum-raisins, oak cabinet wall, dusty old books, many many berries such as blueberries, blackberries, Amarena cherry, all wrapped and old, Holuderbl├╝tenmarmelade, memory of sea buckthorn, cane sugar, a brandy -Orange flavor, chocolate pralines with alcohol, caramel, caramel, almonds, subtle cinnamon, furniture polish. A wonderful old sirenase. The second nose says old sherry, sherry, sherry ...
    • Taste
      a lot of sweet creamy sherry with a sparkling barrel spice, pepper, sticky and tremendously salivary, old oak, orange, dark chocolate, some caramel, old berries and elderberry, bitter almond, leather ... great!
    • Finish
      slightly musty woody sherry, the oak tones take over the scepter, to elderberry, orange, dark chocolate, oily, dry, long finish, brandy, Malaga raisins

  9. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This 34 year old Dufftown, offered by Cadenhead is an excellent whisky. Rich, powerful, balanced, complex and pleasant. It may lack a little aromatic intensity to be a real slaughter.
    • Nose
      very aromatic! Rich, ample, powerful. It smells like cherries in brandy with coffee and dark chocolate. The notes of nuts (walnuts and hazelnuts) give character to this nose, while more fruity and sweet scents make you want to bite it, especially with notes of caramelized apples, sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar , raisins and dates. It's very engaging!
    • Taste
      the first thing that strikes me is the amazing freshness of this dram. Imagine a mint leaf wrapping an apple / cinnamon cake, with an ounce of honey and salted butter caramel, brushed with cherry jam. Bite. That's about what this dram makes me think. It's rich, complex, elegant, with just enough power. Water does not add anything sensational to this 34-year-old Dufftown.
    • Finish
      it is long and intense, with notes of wood, spices and fruits.

  10. Iron Lung scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    91Punkte
    • Nose
      Lots of sherry, currant, very light touch of elderberry, full of dark berries, barrel flavors are also present, smells old, a bit dusty, the alcohol is constantly present but not really disturbing.
    • Taste
      Like water on the tongue, it tingles a bit, the 48% are barely noticeable, even here many ... very dark berries
    • Finish
      Sherry, sherry, sherry, light bitterness, wood, currant, barrel, no burning .... It goes down like oil, the teeth and tongue are almost covered in sherry and berries.
