  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Deep as the sea, thick as jelly, this whisky evokes a host of associations, surprisingly rich on the nose and yielding further.
    • Nose
      94 94
      Thick tones of plum confiture, dried figs, raisins, red apple. Leather gloves, wax, oak, old furniture covered with old leather, over which restoration work was carried out. Very thick, like a train, like fog, like steam over a pot in which wild berries are boiled with spices.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Thick, concentrated sweetness of dark berries, slowly spreading in the mouth, turning first into cooling, and then sharply, into the bitter tones of old oak, varnish and paint, into the astringent bitterness of thick tea leaves.
    • Finish
      91 91
      The enveloping bitterness, which has completely connected all the receptors, is gradually replaced by sweetness, however, it also disappears pretty soon.

    Magnificent aroma - saturated, rich in shades and semitones, complex, deep, very wide palette of derivatives - an excellent entry into the big leagues, but what's there - into masterpieces, unfortunately the taste / finish is certainly of excellent quality, but still does not reach the high the bar set by the fragrance - the set of derivatives is much poorer, everything is simpler and more modest, although in general, of course, many releases can only dream of such a level.
    • Nose
      Discreet, moist, first nose - floral and mineral-industrial shades; old solid wood furniture, old furniture varnish, antique shop, dried fruits - raisins, prunes, dried apples; dark chocolate, coffee, sweet confectionery motifs - well-soaked Prague-type cake, baklava; plum jam, burnt jam; cola, kvass wort, notes of imperial stout, roasted nuts;
    • Taste
      Calm, rich, sweet-woody, dense, leather goods, old furniture, furniture lacquer, dried fruits, cola, tropical fruits, burnt jam, baklava, burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, cola, stout, burnt caramel, furniture lacquer, old leather goods, dried fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, bark astringency, tobacco leaf, tropical fruits;

    Touching this whisky is always a great honor for me!
    It didn't surprise me, it's a flashy sherry bomb that brings multiple orgasms to any whisky addict.
    Tasting a very old sherry whisky and feeling its profile is a very interesting experience.
    And also here you get a good experience that over time there are too many oak tannins in whisky .. and if everything is smoothed and harmonious in the aroma, then tannicity immediately makes itself felt in the taste.
    N:24 T:23 F:24 B:23
    • Nose
      Bright and powerful profile of sherry whisky: sweet floral-honey profile with tones of cocoa, chocolate dried apricots and Ferghana prunes, raisined quiche-mish grapes, steppe herbs and menthol interspersed with wild berries in the face of honeysuckle and blueberries.
      With water, tropical fruits are additionally revealed.
    • Taste
      You immediately feel the contrasting enumeration of tannic essence, the bright sherry motifs of the aroma “feel” in a completely different way in taste - here are pure sherry, and raisins, and vanilla, and prunes, chocolate and dates, the ubiquitous rubber companions of sherry - rubber gloves and a laboratory rubber stopper .
      The bitterness of the oak acts on a par with the sweetness of sherry, making a good pair for each other!
      Plum churchkhella, grape skins and combs, pastries and a light rancio.
      Water successfully breaks up excessive tannic bitterness and the mango-passion fruit cake "appears"!
      Sweetness: 8 out of 10
    • Finish
      Confident and "long" bitterness of old oak, sherry, prunes, tannins of grape offal and spices of the oriental bazaar.

  5. OLdBlack did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Whisky characteristics from the Certificate of Authenticity:
    Colour: Dark Reddish Brown
    Nose: Very rich and appealing, ever too sweet. Brazil nuts, dark sherry, bruised Macintosh red apples, dark toffee (not quite treacle), ginger nut biscuits and gentle oak spices. Extremely lively for its age.
    Palate: Full and very rounded. Rich sherry flavours, ginger and dark chocolade with an intense burst of cherries mid palate.
    Finish: Long with great oak spice, red apples an chocolate gingers.

    CURTNose: Pineapple. Peach. Cherry. Eucalyptus. Latex. Oak. Pepper. Bubblegum. Faint spice pantry.

    Palate: Somewhat ‘thin’. Fruits are impressive, but die rather quickly and turn a little bitter.

    Thoughts & Impressions: Simply astounding nose. The fruit blend is absolutely beautiful. Rich, rich tropicalia. If only it had been a little bigger in terms of abv, but…40.4% tells me they just barely saved this one. “Suggestive poses for the Møøse suggested by VIC ROTTER”

    MALTMONSTERNOSE: A tropical fruit shitstorm. I said it had some of the same notes as the 1960 Bowmores and Clint said it was a lesser brother, more like a Tito Bowmore. Some floral notes, waxy and cinnamon.

    TASTE: A little thin after all the cask strength drams. Floral and fruity, liquorice. Dark chocolate and a bit winey.

    FINISH: Long and floral.

    ASSESSMENT: The number one rated malt of the eight and an exemplary malt worthy of the noble Odin (Ruler of the Viking Gods).

    I guess that this whisky has been stored in a steel container for 3 years before being bottled. On the certificate it is mentioned that the whisky was distilled 1967, bottled 2013 at an age of 43 years.

    This could maybe the rest of this cask which was bottled 2010:
