  1. JohannesB scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    An absolutely perfect cask for the farewell of Master Distiller Jim McEwan. Never before have I experienced that fresh and oxidized fruit notes coexist and complement each other perfectly. In addition, the whisky is not just sweet but offers beautiful, dry woody notes in contrast. I am in heaven.
    • Nose
      Sweet and at the same time oak-heavy, the nose presents itself very complex right from the start. Dried apricot, peach and pineapple. At the same time a fresh component with limes, juicy apricots and oranges can be felt. Somehow crazy to perceive fresh and oxidized fruits at the same time in the aroma. In addition to a malty sweetness and sugar candy, a majestic woody note, which with its dryness and warmth reminds of an infusion in a wooden sauna, towers above everything. The wood is so strong that it is conspicuously contained in every breath, but at the same time so elegant that it does not even remotely cover any of the other flavors.
    • Taste
      Unusually oily and creamy, the malt dresses the entire mouth. Pleasantly sweet with candy, marzipan potatoes, ripe apricots, malt, caramel and some pepper on the tip of the tongue. Then the dry character of the fino prevails with spicy wood notes and slightly sour dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Long and complex sounds "Jim" from. While initially dominate clear notes of wood and bitter espresso, come gradually more creamy and fruity notes to light. Creamy candies with apricot, vanilla and caramel play with all sorts of tropical fruits - especially the pineapple - which flash over again and again.

    The nose is great. The first start something behave, but then he is extremely good. The furry one must like. 89 points.
    • Nose
      What a fruit bomb. Dry, nutty, but not bitter. At least not in the first nose. Dried oranges and apricots. Hazelnuts, almonds. After a few moments, the oak will come. Quickly season with nutmeg and dill. It gets very spicy. It stays dry but supple. Some moss is added and dried tomatoes. Cranberries. Sometimes it gets spicier, woody, then fruity again.
    • Taste
      Soft, nutty. Then it gets intense. Dried oranges and shell. Herb drop. Leather, herbal tea, tobacco leaves. Appearances of fruit acid. The Nachschmecken has in addition to seaweed and coffee. A fur covers the mouth and tongue.
    • Finish
      For a long time, the fur stays long. Nougat.

    Got one of the last drams from the last bottle in the distillery, a pity I would have taken a few bottles right away. Great dram!
    • Nose
      Initially clear sherry, otherwise closed, opens with citrus notes, lemon and lime. Sweet underlaid, heather and malty meadow come up, a little camphor. If he gets warmer, apples are added, massive and super ripe, you almost think you could bite it! Again camphor and now caramel, it is getting warmer, figs, and some sour drops are coming now. The sherry is making its way.
    • Taste
      Mild, sweet, caramel, salt comes from behind with harmonious sherry notes, the oak is perfectly integrated. The second sip clearly salty, fully rounded, wonderful game of flavors. The third sip came then with a strong sour white wine / Fino Sherrynote, where was that before?
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit salty, then sweet, goes slowly and jumps between salt and very dark honey sweetness, the oak accompanies the interplay with a very pleasing tone. Very long finish, in the end it is very dry, apple peel.
