  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    High-quality whisky, whole, well-balanced, fairly dense and saturated, rich in shades and midtones with not the widest palette of derivatives, strong.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, drying mowed grass, nuts, dry boards, lemon peel, light mineral notes - chalk, plaster; vanilla, sweet creamy shades, honey and floral tones.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, oak, floral and herbal shades, vanilla, lemons, oranges, coated tablets, riesling, nuts, tobacco leaf.
    • Finish
      Light, warming, oak, coated tablets, herbal notes, candied citrus fruits, nuts, a little ginger.

    Tasting Notes by Serge V. (Whiskyfun.com, june 3, 2009):

    Colour: straw.

    Nose: starts a little bizarre, with whiffs of plastic (brand new ‘spritzed’ car) and oat, paraffin and cut grass, getting a little rounder (vanilla, apple juice) but also more mineral. Wet stones, chalk, metal, apple peeling, fresh walnuts, Schweppes, cinchona, bitter oranges… Not an easy profile for sure. Keeps developing towards lager beer, hops and ink. Maybe just faint whiffs of honey and ‘yellow’ flowers (buttercups, dandelions). More and more hops.

    Mouth: amazing, it’s beer at cask strength! Huge notes of bitter beer, even Guinness (a lot of caramel, liquorice and coffee liqueur), gingerbread, something like old rancioed wine, ratafia and finally walnut wine (which is a liqueur). A very, very unusual palate and I must say I like it (partly because it’s so… unusual).

    Finish: long, on white beer spirit like they make here in Alsace, ginger wine and bitter oranges.

    Comments: I wouldn’t say the nose was much to my liking but the palate is quite spectacular. Which kind of sherry was it?

    SGP:451 – 85 points.

    Tasting Notes by WEISER:Aroma: Round, vanilla, honey and grassy notes. Fruity, grassy and some mineral notes, very roughly in the flavors.
    Taste: Well matured, very well balanced, with a wonderful taste and a pleasant sherry finish. Excellent.
