    • Nose
      Strawberries. Blackberries, some cinnamon, honey, strawberry jam, old wood, nuts, a little peach, some apricot, some earth
      with heat I get again apple and a little cherry - the strawberries have now become completely completely dominant with me

      So the water was not a good idea - now I have grasses and herbs in my nose, the sweetness is almost completely gone and the alcohol stings properly
    • Taste
      green apple, honey, strawberries, lime, wood, coffee, some pepper - blatant goes extremely well pure!
      gets dry in the mouth

    So the nose is great, unfortunately it was then. In the mouth he lacks any kick, honey, menthol, bitter, that's it. That's a pity.

    Notes from an online chat tasting.
    • Nose
      90 90
      First impression: Almost no alcohol (!), Some cereals and yellow fruit. The banana chips are the first thing that gets in my nose after a while. Add strawberry pannacotta and a dash of lemon and a little bit of menthol. Kamillosan and lavender I go too. The alcohol I find now in the nose again a little clearer than # 1 & 3. Only the broker I found because stronger. But something else is unpleasant. That's right, it levels off over time. One can revive the nose but with movement. Bergamot?
      It's a bit medical with heat. Bath additive and disinfectant.

      Objection: I also thought that he can not keep up in the mouth, what the nose promised. Since the CA was much better on the road.

      Yes, in any case. The sorting on the second sip does not make him to the high flyer, there is really not much. I'll try that again with a few drops of water ...

      Objection: yes let that be better with the water .. also in the mouth loses significantly

      OK, after * snip * s objection, I avoid the water.

      He is also very pure. The promise of the nose, he can not hold in the mouth, however. He has a slightly dominant menthol note, which seems to be the sole rule claims. Sweetness is present, less than at Cadenhead. (https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/102744/speyside-distillery-1996-ca), oak back too.
      In the second sip I can sort that a little better, it's dark honey and in the back it gets really bitter. Espresso with herbs.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The finish seems to me to be the shortest of all, the menthol is gone, it is the malt too.

    Speyside 1991-2014, 22 years, 62% alc. CS Dram Speyside 1991-2014, 22 years, 62% alc.
    Bottler: C & S Dram Collection
    Expansion: Sherry Puncheon , Cask 942
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: Sweet and deep, with pleasant oak flavors, winter spices and raisins. This is followed by the scent of incense, freshly oiled oak and some leather. Behind them are grasses, unripe pears and summer apples and a hint of rhubarb.

    Palate: Powerful and mouth-filling, the alcohol lashes the aromas in the taste buds. Cut flowers, dried apple rings and apricots, walnuts and a hint of spices. Behind, mild wood smoke and tangerine.

    Finish: Long and creamy sweet, the fruits continue to remain, plus pleasant oak spice.

    Conclusion: A really nice whisky from a sherry barrel, also priced very good.

    89/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 95 €)
    I thank the bottler for sample and photo!

    This whisky is not easy. Without water, he himself will be a bit too hard for even experienced cask strength professionals. With water, very distinctive oak tannins and pronounced, spicy bitterness unfold. The sweet character of the sherry barrel goes down a bit. Unique is definitely the mouthfeel that reminds me on the palate of the consumption of raw potatoes (only the feeling, not the taste!)
    • Nose
      Red apples, vanilla cream and honeydew melon, paired with a subtle sweetness. Close behind it follows a rather heavy alcoholic bite, which stings something in the nose. I manage with water. Now it is darker with raspberry jelly, oranges and strong caramel. Herbal notes of grass and herbs follow. The alcohol now gives the gentleman completely and holds back gracefully.
    • Taste
      Despite the addition of water very intense and mouth-filling, the texture of the malts does not suffer from water. On the tongue a fruity-sweet mix of oranges, grapes, raisins and caramelized sugar. At the same time a somewhat floury feeling develops on the palate, as of potato starch. In addition first bittern notes appear.
    • Finish
      Medium long and carried by clear oak tannin and woody bitterness. In between there are always boiled berries, apple compote and some caramel. The bitter side retains the upper hand.
