  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Very sweet and clearly an thick PX nose. It is, however, not over the top. There are these raisins together with other dried red fruit, some Christmas cake and other sweet influences.

    Taste:
    OOOOOMPHFFF. that comes in hard. Clearly a sherry bomb. It needs quite a bit of water. It does remind me of the A'Bunadh. Very heavy thick sherry. It is quite nice though, but a bit up-front.

    Body:
    Full and oily.

    Finish:
    Rather long. Very clear sherry notes. These notes keep lingering and fade away with a tad bitter tannins.

    Price:
    Don't know, this was a given sample.

    Presentation:

    Tasting Notes by Glendronach:

    Nose;

    Stewed orchard fruits with toasted almonds

    and pecans with candied orange notes.

    Appearance;

    Medium oak and amber warmth.

    Palate;

    Fresh burst of sweet roasted apple and pear leading to a rich,

    nutty crescendo of walnut, peanut, nutmeg and cinnemon

    with al long, joyous finish.
