  1. Albaron scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Mmm, it gets better with every sip. Very fruity, but still this freshness and still beautiful oak, not too much, just right. I like.
    • Nose
      Fresh, alcohol, sherry, quite a lot of fresh lemon, eucalyptus
    • Taste
      strong onset, quite bitter, but then it is sweeter, some dried fruit, the sherry comes through, a little barrel seasoning, black tea and a certain heat lives in the fire
    • Finish
      here is still the sweetness of the dried fruit, say the sherry, then comes with force the oak, from the dry deposited variety, both tannins and the bitter spice. But that is not too unpleasant or intrusive

    Tasting Notes:


  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very nice version of a sherried Glen Grant
    • Nose
      Sherry comes straight in, dried fruit, plum and crèmebrûlée
    • Taste
      Very tasty, dry, creamy and fruity
    • Finish
      Warm, floral and fruitcake spices

  6. Hemdl scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful nose, which can certainly convince with sweetish-fruity aromas.
    Tasty, however, with unpleasant soapy and artificial notes, which push forward at the end and deceive the taste experience clearly.
    You do not necessarily have to drink.

  7. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    In my opinion it has too much oaky bitterness.

    You need to use several drops of water to reduce the alcohoilic strength and to open up the full range of flavours.

  9. Gatsby-62 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Now that the collector's hype has subsided and there is still the bottle to buy, the point anger has relativized. Even users who gave him only 89 points and more and said the bad grades come from users who have not gotten a bottle or have voted against the hype, have now landed at 85 points and less or have completely deleted their points.
    a quote from SteveW110 as an example: I believe this "soap-judgment" comes from people who are just a little tired of the whole "hyperei" and maybe even whisky.
    I tried the GG completely unbiased before the run started and gave him 89 points.
    Neither soap nor an extreme "Bitternote" are for me to make out.
    I find him extremely tasty and do not understand such actions as 60points in the base at all ...
    (Unless you were desperately trying to get one and then did not get one)
    Make your own picture !!! -> great MALT  
    The great malt he has later deducted 4 points (Member Council: SteveW110 85 points ) Just an example ! What the reverse implies that this user wanted to increase the value of the bottle in their possession. Nice that the reality has corrected it. I found the nose pretty appealing, but whisky is also there to drink and then it loses its bitterness and slightly soapy notes. On average, he always manages to score 82 points (because of the nose).

  10. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice, but not more, he did not convince me.
    • Nose
      Raisins, sherry, hazelnuts, strong alcohol. Little glue and neat vanilla.
    • Taste
      Strong alcohol, chocolate, sweeter the longer it stays in the mouth. Bitterness comes up slowly.
    • Finish
      First bitter, then chocolatically.
