    Blind tasting.

      heavy sherry, pencil shavings, high prickle, hint of petrol

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Clearly less fudgy and fruity than 3525 and therefore a lower score, but for this age it's definitely a great whisky.
    • Nose
      Blueberry, marzipan, caramel, prune and minerals.
    • Taste
      Cherry, caramel, blueberry, mocha and pepper. With water a lot of almond.
    • Finish
      Caramel, blueberry and mocha.

    On the nose I get big Sherry, lots of dried fruit, raisins, prunes and some cherries (ever had dried cherries? delicious). Sherry-Monster in da House! Quite sweet with a nice touch of marzipan also some roasted nuts, perhaps even caramelized almonds. Some hay followed the appropriate farmy notes. Lovely! Taste: WoW, stunning arrival, huge volume (66.7%?), cherries and a nice round touch of oak. Very mellow considering the strengh, drinking this one neat is no problem at all! With water I get more Sherry on the nose but the punch in the arrival is gone. Noses quite flat now. On the palatte it turns more oaky and the youth becomes more obvious. There is also a sourness appearing in the arrival. Please do not water this baby, if you are scared of the strengh, let someone else try this amazing dram!

  9. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Sherry, rubber, sweet vanillas and more rubber. According to Billy at TWE, this was the first bottle to sell at TWE show 2014 and the first to sell out. That tells you how appealing this whisky is.
    T: Sherry, leather, rubber, oil, spices, vanilla, toffee, caramel….
    F: Fruits, caramel, vanilla, BBQ smoke.
    C: Excellent, young and fun.
