  6. hs305 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 65,50 Euro in October, 2014.

    [September, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 90 Euro in August, 2016.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85 and 82,5.  My notes state a slightly sulphury nose and taste that was bearable the first time but a little annoying with the second bottle.  Too bad, as otherwise this is a fine dram...

    PS:  Nevertheless I would not have bought the second bottle if I had remembered the taste of the first one correctly.  That is why I now enter all my old tasting notes into WB.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: This one is quite complex on the nose, very straightforward, but jet complex. It is clear there are sherry notes there. But also some leather. Some strawberry's are there. But there is also a little glue note.

    Taste: Sweet, must be a major of px barrels. I like it, it gives a spicy red fruit taste, I don't know where I encountered these flavours before.

    Body: Full but not very oily

    Finish: Long. A bit dry and dusty, for the rest it's the nose and taste combined.

    Price: 89 euro's is quite fair for this quality.

    Presentation: Don't know this was a sample.

  9. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not a very stereotypical 1st fill.

    Tasted both by itself and in a lineup with Longmorn "The Ten" n. 4 12yo (81), Glen Keith cask 120578 (87), Craigellachie HL 10589 (88), Glen Elgin '98-'14 G&M (84) and Elements of Islay Bw5 (89).
    • Nose
      In the glass it's really light for a 1st fill sherry but perhaps its neither of the usual suspects, px and oloroso? Nose would point to that: there's prunes and the smell of a kettle after popping corn (generally it smells a little fried), well buttered toast, plus very faint yeasty sourness. A little smoke, like in Glenfarclas. It also shares that whisky's greasiness but isn't quite as "christmas" because there's only cinnamon but no other major spices. Water brings up salinity and butter.
    • Taste
      The body doesn't seem to work well neat, but with water it becomes fatter and richer. A bit gamey, buttery and salty with a little blackpepper. The sherry's there but it doesn't dominate the palate.The frying aromas come through here as well: there's a taste like the Glenfarclas gingerbread but burnt. 
    • Finish
      On pepper and faint smoke. A bit drying, resinous. The wood takes its leave too soon. Mustard?
