  1. Dottore scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting: A fabulous whisky to end the pre-Christmas night. Tip: 16-18 years, Port-Cask, vll a Mortlach? approx. 50%. Very good. 90 points
    • Nose
      Chemistry laboratory air, a lot of baked apple, cinnamon, quince juice
    • Taste
      very creamy and oily. Then a lot of spice and sweetness, subtle notes of fruit. Pretty little woody notes
    • Finish
      Long and soft, here is some bitter wood. Seasoning and sweetness dominate. Nice!

    BLIND TASTING
    Tip: great malt, which actually needs no water

    - Speyside
    - 51 to 56%
    - 15 to 20 years
    - refill Sherry Butt, maybe a fino
    • Nose
      Vanilla kipper, green pears, a bit like sunflower oil, a dull sweetness, summery fruit, physalis, after the first sip at a time potato chips, with water he tilts something
    • Taste
      strong onset, dry fruitiness and also a lot of wood, is getting warmer and fuller in the mouth, diluted a little sweeter
    • Finish
      Medium long and at times much more elegant and silky than the taste would suggest, Irish Cream, will come back later

    A strange blind tasting. Today I had a very idiosyncratic whisky (with an estimated 60% alcohol content) in the glass. An indefinable spice dominates the taste, the finish is really dominated only by sharpness. In my opinion, the nose is still the best component of this blind sample.

    Edit: During the post-tasting of the rest of the sample, my impressions coincide with the first blind tasting. A strange whisky. Not bad, but not the "Burner".
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: Discreet sherry notes mingle with vanilla and light earth tones. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated, apricots and peaches are added. Do I smell a fine peat note there? A harmonious spice superimposes the remaining aromas. Over time, the nose dulls off, the light earthy aromas persist.

      Edit: After the addition of water, I imagine again to notice a slight peat note. Pale wood and a hint of fruit are also present.
    • Taste
      Wow, a high alcohol content beats mercilessly, followed by fruit flavors and spicy wood. It bizzles and prickles in the entire mouth area, this whisky urgently needs a drink of water. After the addition of water "exhausted" wood comes to the fore. Seasoning and then slight sharpness which is getting more and more intense.
    • Finish
      With this sharpness the departure begins. Pale wood tones penetrate through the sharpness, fruit flavors emerge. A slightly bitter walnut aroma dominates the eternally long finish.
