Nose:
A little hefty with the high alcohol. But behind that, there is raisin, some toffee, another sweet note I cannot name and there is the obvious sherry note in the background.

Taste:
Very full on sherry notes in here. loads of red fruit, almost like a chupachup lollipop. There is also a bit of tannins in here with it's classic bitter note.

Body:
Quite creamy

Finish:
Long length. The obvious notes of sherry and dried red fruit, combine with a pleasing note of woodshavings.

Price:
Around €65 is quite decent priced

Presentation:
Decent.

Nose

A bit sharp, sweet, honey, some liquorice, sherrynotes, raisins, toffee, caramel, apples, grapes, some freshly sawn wood, resin and some nuts. 

Taste

Pepper, sweet, honey, caramel, slightly bitter, coffee and oranges. Quite oily.

Finish

Medium length, chocolate, pepper, sherrynotes, dried fruits, raisins and slightly drying over time.

Comments

It has a sharp edge, but I still liked it. There is sherry, but it ain't a sherrybomb.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Oproti CS 1 je vůně svěžejší a ostřejší. Dřevo, lehké sherry, krémovost. Syrové čerstvé dřevo, ostrost, jehličnatost a větrovost. (87 b)

Taste

Ostrá, štiplavá, krémově dřevitá s čokoládou a lehkým sherry vlivem. S vodou sládne a ještě víc zkrémovatí. (87 b)

Přijde mi, že na mě působí obdobně, jako když jsem v roce 2014 ochutnal CS1. Ale po třech letech pak CS1 působila výrazně lépe. Bude zajímavé CS5 přechutnat zase za pár let, uvidíme. Děkuji Filetovi za pozvání na panáka.

Nose

Orange, Vanille, Zimt, erinnert an einen saftigen Christstollen mit Zitronat, Orangeat, Marzipan, Rosinen und Puderzucker oben darauf. 

Taste

Sherry, Süße, getrocknete Früchte, Orange

Finish

Würzig, ganz leicht pfeffrig, erst mäßige Süße, dann trockener werdend. Mittellang. 

Comments

Ich muss zugeben ich bin Glendronach-Fanboy und daher vielleicht etwas voreingenommen. Ich denke für Sherry-Fans ist es ein Positiv-Beispiel für einen NAS Whisky. Definitiv gut gereift. Wirkt nicht trotz NAS kein bisschen unreif. Durch die Fassstärke hat er natürlich einen ordentlichen Antritt, ist aber trotzdem vergleichsweise mild. Lecker.

more PX than oloroso, so this one is sweeter compared to the batch 6 with notes of oloroso salty and sour. but generally falls as sweet, also tends to be rather flat and watered down, even at cask strength. disappointing to be honest as it does not have (or nowhere near) the intensity, complexity and beauty of the batch 6.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Viel trockene Sherryaromen zu Beginn, reife rote Früchte, Kirschen, eine subtile Ledrigkeit, ein klein wenig Marzipan, Zimt und Nelken; 

Taste

Würzig und mit einer ausgeprägter herben Fruchtnote - die Fruchtigkeit ist nicht süss wie man es von einer Sherrybombe erwarten würde, sondern herb-würzig, dazu eine deutliche Eichennote, weiters in Rum eingelegte Früchte - Rumkirschen, vielleicht sind dann auch noch Mandeln da, auch Café und Schokolade kommen hinzu;

Finish

Mittellang und mit deutlich Eiche und Würzigkeit, trocken-würzig-herb;

Comments

Keine Sherrybombe - trotzdem ein schöner Malt mit deutlichen Sherryaromen und einer ausgeprägten Würzigkeit;

Nose:
Sweet spicy incense, Peach, Vanilla, some tobacco, Fennel and some raisins in the background..
Taste:
Sweet and Dry, a lot of fresh wood, malty, laurel and Cinnamon. In the development, some virgin oak alike pencil shavings, laurel stays present en again that small raisin note on the background.
Finish:
Long, dry and mainly more wood influence.

Nice for the 49,95 I paid.
