- Got this from a sample trade. Well to be clear, this is not worth the prices that are stated on this page. I can't imagine it was released for these kind of prices. There is much better stuff available for that kind of money. It isn't quite your epic dram. Something you would expect when spending this much money on it. P/Q ratio just doesn't add up. That's the main reason. Whisky-wise it is also a bit weird. One moment I find it pleasant and rather good, a second later I don't like it at all. It seems to have an identity crisis.
Tons of deep, sweet and ripe red fruits. I have to say this is quite pleasant and complete. Despite of the sulphuric note which is clearly there, I guess I'm less sensitive for that. It's a strong, dark nose very flavorful. Warm apple pie and cinnamon. Very PX-sherry driven. You have to give it a decent amount of time in the glass to get to it's full potential. But it stays a mediocre one.
Bitter, sweet and a bit stiff. Red fruits in a full, thick body. Not very complex. It's fine but not dramtastic.
Rather long finish. The finish has writen medium dry px sherry written allover it. Loads of raisins come through as well as red fruits and dark grapes. Finish is what I like the best. Px sherry is sticky to the palate.
- An other sulphureous transgender.
- [December, 2016] I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by Cadenhead.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 66. My
notes state......another one bites the dust - massive sulphured whisky straight outta hell! In case you are in favour of hell-like drinks, this one's for you... Obviously there are quite some people out there that adore such stuff or that are luckily enough not to have the genes to smell and taste sulphur (see some of the high ratings...). Yes, it is a scientific fact that about 50 per cent of all people do not recognize sulphur flavours in a significant way (due to their genes).All others stay away: This dram is not to drink, just for the sink!
