  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I like so intense and also slightly dirty whiskys, I like from front to back very well
    • Nose
      91 91
      Hey, this is a nose, unmistakably Laddie, although the wine already neat strikes, some cheese, creamy, caramel, red wine, dry, cherries, light citrus notes, furniture polish, some dark chocolate, spicy, going into bacon, yes bacon in the Pan is fried, but diluted, exciting
    • Taste
      92 92
      full-bodied, intense, wow, nut, toasty, intense, wow, a little bit of sulfur, the whole mouth is full of aromas, red wine, cooked red fruits, milk chocolate, sweet, but still dry from the mouthfeel, great

      back bitter, now dark, still totally present, cherry, the Hanutawaffelröstaromen are still there, lingering

  2. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Amazing and great! He lives up to the hype, but unfortunately (as so often) the hype destroys an acceptable price situation for me. 90 points.
    • Nose
      Winy chocolate. Dark, deep. Berry. Sulfur. Gathering cherries. The alcohol is there, not disturbing, but it is there. Leather is added now. Porcini mushrooms and gravy. A very tempting combination of sweet and savory. Hints of juniper.

      Water:: That's worth it! More chocolate and less alcohol. Then comes tobacco and aromatic oak. Oranges. Gummy bear.
    • Taste
      Sparkling. Not sharp. Astringent, that's the alcohol. A sweet barely dares. Cherries. Wine. Chocolate, rather dark. With the swallow comes leather and sulfur. And the tannins come through. Bitter chocolate. Aromatic oak. Is the whisky really that young? I can hardly believe it.

      Water: sweeter, but still not really sweet. Fuller and more intense. The astringent is no longer there, leather comes through immediately and fermented fruit. Sulfur is very clear now. Bang gun.
    • Finish
      Long, leathery, a soft fur on the tongue. Warm. Cherry Chocolate.

    Cherry juice-red (we did not have that color until now)
    Black cherries, cherry brandy, wood, furniture polish, floor wax, leather, tingling salt and sulfur. With some orange, vanilla, some hemp and rope. Very sweetish and artificially played.
    Very, very sweet and alcohol-bearing. Bitter wood, furniture polish, sulfur and sweet cherry juice. Again, with an "artificial touch" provided for us, which seems infinitely bitter and sweet at the same time.
    Long - (actually too long for us!) Fading away with the weird taste notes. Here, however, slowly getting a little more conciliatory - still ultra sweet but the bitter notes gradually fade away.
    Well, wine barrel finish ... without further comments on our part.

    Conclusion: 94/100 points - "Wine finish at it's best". This Bruichladdich from the legendary Mouton Rothschild barrel is exactly what you want as a lover of wine finishes. By far the best wine finish bottling I was allowed to try. The barrel is very strong and gives the whisky unmistakable tannins and a nice fruit sweetness. I am more than enthusiastic. Unfortunately, nowhere to get more - too bad! Who wants to give a bottle, please report - any time!
    Tasting on my blog:

    • Nose
      Nose: directly very liqueur, cherry and raspberry. Almost no alcohol despite 62.8%. Creamy sweets and grapefruit. Fruity and sweeter with a little water.
    • Taste
      Palate: wow, what a flavor explosion. Slightly smoky, strawberries, cherries, caramel. Nice nut nougat flavors. The dry wine tannins get through well. Very sweet and complex. With a little water much fruity, but also sweeter. Strawberry, redcurrant and some rhubarb.
    • Finish
      Finish: Very long, fruity-nutty finish. Almost no alcohol, a little tart and dry becoming the end. With water the finish is sweeter.

  5. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    class "Winesky", an intense, extremely dry experience, thick fruit bomb, lots of Tannin, very fun and my thing.
    • Nose
      Pure: very rich, leathery dark fruit note, cherry liqueur, sherry-like chocolate note, after a short time in the glass, the fruit becomes even more intense, an aroma bomb! With water: fruity and dry at the same time, Campino candies, the red ones!
    • Taste
      Pure: beautiful, dry onset, barely spicy, Black Forest cherry, creamy nougat note, very nutty. With water: even drier, I can feel directly as the cheeks contract, really cool! The red wine component now pushes right forward, you have to like. I like this!
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry and fruity. Again, the wine is noticeable.
