    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.
