    @Toffie76

    ...i dont know what it is, because nobody can do that for certain. But i know it cant be a Springbank, because it is a Speyside Malt!

    Very often, early years Speysiders (especially Sherry casks) are Glenfarclas, but also that is not guaranteed...

    My guess is : a Springbank!  reminds me of a mildly peated version of a 12CS...

  5. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Speculations on the origins of The Nameless One pointed to Glenfarclas. Jurgen himself claims it's certainly not one from the Grant family... And since the cask end was unreadable, the contents will probably remain a mystery. The most important thing was the liquid inside and it truly delivered. The whisky inherited all the top flavours after 18 years in a (refill?) sherry cask.

    The Nameless One costed €79 in specialized shops. A good price for a cask strength 18yo sherried Speysider. And the stunning label came for free. I'm becoming a Mercenary fan...
    • Nose
      The Sherry is strong with this one. Big sweet flavours from mango compote and orange marmalade. Apricots and panna cotta with passion fruits. Ginger bread and stem ginger, raisins and a lost clove. Towards the end I got a nice herbal surprise: olives with garlic. Didn't see that one coming...
    • Taste
      Honey and gingerbread upfront with rum & raisins ice cream. Pickled pears and cherries preserved in jenever. Poire Williams and sweet cantaloupe melon. A splash of orange lemonade.
    • Finish
      A warming aftertaste with orange marmelade and cherry jam.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A candy whisky, not alcoholic, that can be drunk very easily. As an aperitif or dessert, it will do the trick so it goes alone. The nose is particularly appetizing.
    Special mention for the style label '' american B-series horror film of the '50s, very successful I think.
    • Nose
      A greedy and attractive nose, based on marzipan and frangipane. Apple and apricot crumble. The malt develops later in Small Butter mode.
    • Taste
      A hint of malted bitterness at the mouth. Behind hides yellow fruits, hovering between fresh, cooked and candied. A sweet, sweet mouth that sticks to the palate.
    • Finish
      The bitterness of citrus peel dies and gives way to sweet and warm spices. Pear peel when you swallow.

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A rather atypical
    Glenfarclas, but a beauty nonetheless. Well chosen, Jurgen!
    • Nose
      The first thing that
      I notice on this sweet nose is how heavily it smells of butter. Sweetened
      butter, to be sure. Once you get past that, a nice mix of stewed fruits,
      sultanas, some beeswax and vanilla entice you. Some mocha and even a hint of
      sniffing tobacco. Do I detect even a trace of smoke? Must be from the wood.
      After a few moments, the whole turns somewhat into praline and a hint of
      chocolate milk. It keeps developing in the glass. Very nice and complex.
    • Taste
      Despite the high ABV,
      the arrival is very soft. Nicely smooth and warm on spices. Cloves, liquorice
      and a pinch of pepper. The butter is less on the palate, replaced by more
      fruit. Dades, plums, raisins. Starts to look more and more like Glenfarclas,
      but atypical enough to impress even Mr Timmermans (are you reading this, Luc?).
    • Finish
      I would not have
      minded if the finish lasted a bit longer, but it certainly does not disappoint.
      Spicy and fruity, as was to be expected from this whisky.
