- Blind tasting! Great whisky for me. about 52 vol.%. Highlands. First Fill Sherry. Edradour or Deanston? about 16 years. Could also be a Glenrothes
Fantastic sherry notes, dates, grapes, figs! Very nutty, Asian plum wine, vanilla. Overall, the sherry influence already dominates significantly. Alcoholic sharpness is not to be found. From the nose pretty old, but the massive sherry influence could also conceal the youth
Very oily and very sweet. No sharpness in the mouth. Vanilla cream and a wonderful spiciness from the wood spreads in the mouth. The sherry fruits harmonize perfectly with it. Nutmeg and cloves. Really good
Slight tingling remains at the tip of the tongue, but now slight peppery sharpness. There is hardly any bitterness in the finish. Balanced between dry sweet and fruity.
- That goes in the GlenDronach Parliament direction. Nice part, but very, very barrely. Notes were created in Blind Tasting. Thanks to Tom na Gruagaich for the experience.
Beautiful tart-acidic note that holds back nicely. I like it that way. Very overripe, slightly fermented fruit, such as pear, apples, peach and plums. Lots of oranges, fat nuts but really fat walnuts. Slightly after rum pot with pickled raisins, dates, plums. Delicate cooling menthol or after-eight and alcohol influences in the background. There's something artificial about solvent, like acetone. I also have some rubber abrasion. But only very, very low.
Yes, that's a real board. With so much barrel influence it is very difficult to find the burner character. Lots of cooling wood, bitter liquorice, very dark chocolate with 90% cocoa melt on the tongue. The alcohol is very nice back I think. That could only have been EU Sherry Oak. Much of what happens in nosing also applies in the tasting. Lots of menthol and mint. Great part no question. I'll say Ü 25 and if not then it must have been a very good first-fill sherry keg
Long and bitter

Young, 20 years old, not at all, strong, but tasty, to drink at the location, and not only ...

- The bright sherry is nutty, but a little aggressive, claiming to be a sherry bomb.
Seasonings, cloves and cinnamon, followed by tones of dried rose petals and cloves, then raisins and figs, plum jam and prunes themselves.
The taste is sweet, nutshell, walnut in jam, plum jam. No varnish. Very balanced and good drink.
The aftertaste is sweet, bright, and long.
- Very nice!
- Powerful and creamy, though not too complex
Intense sherry notes, grapes, rasins, spices, pepper
Punchy, very oily and creamy, nutty, subtle sweetness, nutty, oak wood, ginger, pepper, little leathery, little dried fruits, raisins
