Speyside Region 38 yo 1977/2015 (46.2%, Whisky-Fässle, sherry butt) Five stars Colour: amber. Nose: yeah, chestnut purée, pecan pie, dried figs, and cigars and chocolate. Cigars dipped into chocolate! And prunes, old armagnac (many old armagnacs soon on WF!) oranges, chestnut honey… Mouth (neat): starts dry and even a little aggressive, with a dry dustiness and bags of cloves, but it tends to settle down. A bit. Dry herbs, thyme, chocolate, juniper berries, dried dates, a touch of salt… And quite a lot of dark toffee from Ballindalloch. I said nothing. Finish: long, earthy, and chocolaty. Some mint again in the aftertaste, that’s old age. Very nice dry tannins. Comments: not the first from these parcels we’re trying. All of them have been excellent. SGP:461 - 90 points.

Nose

Eine sehr schöne Sherry süße steigt einem sofort in die Nase, ein wenig holzig, Muff, dunkle Beeren, Alkohol ist super eingebunden

Taste

Sherry süße, Holz, Erdbeere(?), ganz leicht bitter

Finish

Alkohol ist kaum zu spüren, sehr süß, Beeren, Trauben, Milchschokolade

Comments

Auch wenn ich für den Preis schon (für meinen Geschmack) bessere getrunken habe, ist dies trotz allem ein wunderbarer Whisky.
Das PLV passt mMn aber leider nicht ganz.
Er braucht ein wenig Zeit im Glas und definitiv kein Wasser.

Nose

Almonds and macademia nuts with English breakfast tea. Some oak shavings. Prunes and red grape juice with pralines and chocolate milk.

Taste

Roasted coffee beans and cloves, with a quick hit of pepper. Pretty dry and quite some tannins. Milk chocolate, cocoa and basil. A bit of dried fruit, but not much.

Finish

Drying with cocoa powder and spices.

Comments
A cracker of a sherry whisky, with just a bit too much dryness to crack the 90 point barrier, but still really, really good.
