  1. DoctorRockter scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Real Sherry bomb,
    Nose: Alcohol can be felt a lot, only after a while a smell of cherries, cooked plums, a distant hint of cinnamon emerges on the nose. with the addition of water a strange and nice spicy flavor emerges, of cocoa with chilli and black pepper,so spicy and a little zesty, cinnamon and some ginger. A good one finally, recommended for hyper sherry lovers

  9. The Macallan scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    A Nice sherrybomb, but not very exciting.
    • Nose
      Not an overpowering sherry nose, sultanas, cherries, chocolate (reduced: more citrusfruit [tangarine, qumquat] really not exciting at all
    • Taste
      Sherry flavors, woody, slightly drying, oranges and dried fruit with some spices (reduced: spiced citrusfruit)
    • Finish
      Woodspices, warming, reasonably long with some tobacco at the end

    A new independent bottler emerges from The Netherlands. They call
    themselves The Whisky Nerds, which might not seem very original at
    first, but I think it immediately makes them one of the better named
    independent bottlers out there.
    The Whisky Nerds go by the names of Bram and Floris in everyday life.
    They are also part of the board of the Usquebaugh Society, the largest
    whisky society of The Netherlands. Bram is the president and Floris the
    secretary. I’m a member of the Usquebaugh Society, and that is how I
    know these two gentleman.
    Don’t expect dozens of new bottlings from them every year. That is not their philosophy, as is evident from their website:
    “The bottlers have no other desire than to put out good whisky, at the
    right time. If benefit is to be expected from giving a cask another year
    to perform more magic on the precious spirit inside it, then it is
    given. So, bottlings under the Whisky Nerds label may very well be a
    rare event.”
    Their first bottling is a joint one with Japanese Whisky-E. It is a
    Glendronach from 1995, one they describe as an “honest sherry cask, in
    stark contrast to the more modern era sherry bottlings that can be found
    today”. The Whisky Nerds were kind enough to share a sample with me.
    Glendronach 1995/2015 (55,1%, OB ‘for The Whisky Nerds, C#2380)
    Sultana’s, milk chocolate and powdered coffee. Lots of sweet fruits with
    black berries, dried dates and cherries. Very syrupy. Also some
    porcini, which is a new aroma for me in whisky.
    Taste: Cherry
    syrup, sugared sultana’s with walnuts and macadamia nuts. Slightly spicy
    with cinnamon, cloves and a hint of pepper. Very well-balanced and
    smooth, never would’ve guessed this was bottled a just over 55 percent.
    Finish: Cherries and berries with a spicy note and a slight dryness. The milk chocolate lingers for a long time.
