Whisky Reviews for Prometheus 26-year-old TGDC

- Obviously requires some time (1 minute per year minimum)))) to develop and gain full power
- Complex and interesting, tastes older than it is despite it is actually not a young one, I like th ebalance of sweetness and spices
Intense, nutty, sherry, hints of leather, spices, pepper, nutmeg, cloves
Oily, creamy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, fine oak wood, xmas spice, cinnamon, nutty again
Long and warm, stille spicy and little sweet
- The 26-year-old and 27-year-old in direct comparison: https://fosm.de/tasting-prometheus-26yo-vs-27yo/
Mild Sherrynoten and light smoke, a little fruit and orange, I think so too. Over time, he also changes without water. Very complex. A very interesting combination. Now chocolate is also added. And raisins.
Mock and chocolate, vanilla and pepper. Mild smoke. A lot of power for the 47%. The dark fruits and oranges are also noticeable. A little reminds me of the marmalade.
Long mellow finish, fruity, little oak especially for 26 years, light nut notes
- This is definitely NOT a distillery bottling, as this Glasgow distiller doesnt exist 5 years yet and this whisky is 26 years old. Casks bought/given somewhere else and bottled. As are the next 3 bottlings: this is the first in a series of four (26, 27, 28, 29 yo)
- Excellent whisky with one serious drawback. Full review is here: http://whiskygospel.com/2015/03/23/whisky-review-tasting-notes-prometheus-26yo/
- My review can be found here:
- I had to downgrade the presentation because I have not yet seen exactly how the bottle and presentation box will look.
- Just tasted this today at Hanse Spirit and my friends and I are blown
away by it - cannot wait until this comes on the market next month! But
600€ a bottle? Without a doubt it is well worth it. We tried The Dalmore
25 years today too - and the finish on Prometheus is significantly better.
still not sure who the original distiller is but they sure know what
they are doing. When I think about The Dalmore 25 costing around 700€ a
bottle - I would say that Prometheus is easily worth at least that and
after having tasted it I would gladly pay more.
whisky. So excited about other
bottles coming from the Glasgow Distillery too, especially with David Robertson involved in their
new spirits I really have great expectations from these guys.
An absolute MUST have for anyone that can appreciate a dram of this quality.
Just found this online, pre-orders being taking in North America now for $950 per bottle. The European market place is very lucky!
- At the premiere of the new and highly praised Prometheus at the HanseSpirit in Hamburg, he came to me as "First" Malt of the Day in the glass and what can I say, except:
"He left no lasting impression!"
I gave Prometheus the time to unfold in the glass, but disappointingly little unfolded ...
If he had jumped blindly into my glass, he would not have put it on 26yo either. In the body it is nicely balanced and harmonizes between the 47% alcohol and the sherry-cask influence.
The finish is quite short and disappointed here a little.
All in all, a nice malt for 60-100 €, but he is in his price range at the highest level.
(you do not even have to try it, it's so unspectacular)
