[September, 2015]  Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 65 Euro in May, 2015.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state a rather harsh and somewhat unbalanced modern sherry profile that is still a little immature.  Not my kind of dram...

There is no accounting for taste...

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Chestnuts roasting by an open fire. Mulled wine spices, orange peel, a glass of sherry on the sideboard.

Taste

Sweet kisses under the mistletoe . Sneaking candy. Some smoky undertones coming through.

Finish

Long, rich generous. Still very sweet. Lovely

Comments

A lovely Tamdhu. First batch and better batch?

N- With higher strength as backbone to hold all the goodies together, it make good sense to pay more for this to the standard lame 10YO. Mineral and zingy bring along high strength, consistently pungent on nose, spicy and sharp throughout, some interesting dirty sherry, raisin, roasted malt and solid.

P- Concentrated syrupy prunes, creamy bitter chocolate and almost brandy alike. Raisin and resinous, some soft rubbery and tannin lingers.

F- Long with firm coats of dark sherry wood, brewed coffee powder, rubber comes again with spiky fruits, pepper and sweet menthol.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Na CS příjemně zaoblené, ředění není potřeba. Jinak příjemná sherry záležitost, s velmi ovocnou vůní a oříškovou chutí. Přijemná záležitost

Nose:
The sherry influence is clear in this one. Kind of the hardy notes which you get with Oloroso Butts. There is also some vanilla and oak in here. The nose is quite pleasing. There is some five spice, old spice in the background.

Taste:
Red fruit, some spices, wood, vanilla, fudge. It is quite a burst. With water there are some tannins coming through, but it's not unpleasant

Body:
full and a bit oily.

Finish:
Long. Red fruit again, which comes together with vanilla and some pudding. It leaves a bit bitter (tannins) with some oak.

Price:
Well I paid about €50,- which is fair.

Presentation:
I like this kind of presentation.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Nez : Céréales. Assez fermé de prime abord, il s'ouvre enfin au bout de quelques minutes et quelques tours de centrifugeuse manuelle... Pas mal de chocolat au lait, sans être trop sucré. D'oranges également mais pas confites, elles sont plus jeunes comme fraîchement récoltées. Du miel charpenté, style châtaigner ou de montagne. Il ne supporte pas le repos, on a l'impression que tout les arômes se referment. Enfin pas tous, il reste quelques notes de pruneaux et surtout de raisins. Il n'y a aucune difficulté à le sentir. Un peu d'épices avec de la muscade.

Taste

Bouche : La texture est divine. On a des notes caramélisées, un peu comme les W....s Orignal. Par contre en rétro, il envoie du poney comme dirait une certaine personne. Un peu trop même. Quelques piqûres d'alcool viennent nous gâcher notre plaisir. Le plaisir est présent grâce aux arômes de fruits secs (noisette), puis avec les épices. Pour autant, il peut se garder longtemps en bouche et c'est très agréable. On retrouve des agrumes mais aussi les épices

Finish

Finale : sur le chocolat qui se rapproche du noir. Bonne longueur et bonne persistance des arômes. Epices et caramel.
