26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.24 points
- Tasty but very high priced
Leathery, intense draft, dates, figs, sour edge, pleasantly mild spicy
Woody sweetness, dates, figs, milk chocolate, mild and creamy, salt, oak
Medium to long, pronounced oaky elements with a nice blend of fruit and vanilla notes
- Sweet grassy with hints of pear.
Bit musky like an old school whisky.
The low ABV lets me down though.
- very delicious, I buy it
very fruity, dark red fruits, sweet, caramel, honey, very round, no alcohol noticeable. Very harmonious and harmonious, makes you want to taste it
directly very strong onset, sweet, fruity, and very round. Much stronger than one would expect for 40% alcohol. Nice sherry flavors, nuts with raisins, darker chocolate and then salt.
The oak flavor is very discreet.
The taste is very harmonious
medium to long, it remains a sparkling sweet-fruity and salty oak.
From the throat Sherrynoten, especially sweet nut flavors
- Tasty drop, but I expected at 21 years but a bit more depth. Even the only 40% let him come to me rather scanty.
slight beeswax, subtle fruitiness, very mild
mild and velvety, caramel and butter biscuit, behind it a little bee honey and dry oak tones
When it starts to get a little bit watery, the caramel and oak tones still fade away
- Nose: Linseed oil to start, mixed with a little furniture polish. Stewed Darjeeling with a drop of heather honey sweetness.
Palate: Rich tea biscuits, distant orchard fruits, flaked raw almonds. Dusty leather books that have just been polished.
Finish: Old dry wood, tannins and dissolved soft brown sugar. Dry but with more body and lengthier finish than I've ever received from a 40%er.
Not overly sweet, feels like it's a whisky from another era. Must have some much older stock than 21YO in there.
Surprisingly great. The price tag is getting up there now. Probably worth £100 not £200.
- Something completely different, especially.
He smells quite unusual. Rather dry, slightly fruity, dry grapes, spices, plums.
Also in the taste continues the special note. Hard to define what it tastes like. But maybe that's the fad ...
- It would be a very pleasant malt with cask strength. So, unfortunately, it is quite restrained.
Raisin, prune, antique skin and a little caramel
Pleasant spicy start, then sweet sherry, plum,
rum cherry and blueberry
Medium length, creamy, spicy
