  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Beautiful volume. Light and fragrant. Toasted notes. Jam of red fruits. A little coffee. The toffee wakes up. Simple and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Easy and pleasant. Consistent with the announcement of the nose. Pretty spicy. Noticeable reduction, but it passes.
    • Finish
      Sweet spices. Elegance and persistence.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

    the nose is not bad, and also very tasty, but the substance is a little lacking in the back. Not a masterpiece now, solid whisky.
    • Nose
      Very sweet, dark fruity, nutty, also honey, doesn't look very old. A little moss, forest floor. You can tell that the sherry is a little different, but you can feel the influence of the finish quite clearly.
    • Taste
      drier than expected, pleasant, warm and spicy, light sweetness ... a little oak.
    • Finish
      Which clearly pulls in the finish. But then it tends to be drier, bitter and also a little dusty and watery - unfortunately not as lasting and beautiful as the nose.

    I have always had a soft spot for Glenmorangie and they pioneered the finishing technique so I expected more. This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.

      When I opened the sample bottle and pour it into the glass, I always have a smell of the bottle before the glass and in this case there was very little which I found a little worrying. Anyway onto the nosing glass and yes it's better but not much better. Light chocolate and light red fruits. What is in there is faint and you really have to drag it out. Strawberries icecream or yogurt. An old woman's cheap perfume or air freshener.
    • Taste

      The taste is better, not great but okay. Again I get those fruit sherry flavours but they taste a bit artificial, almost like an additive. Judging by the burn it tastes a lot stronger than 43%. Not a lot going for it really.

      The finish is short. In fact it's so short you almost miss it. Slight bitterness on the death.

  5. Malthead19 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    - despite the mild first impression much stronger and
    more intense than expected
    - at €60 per liter it used to be €42 for 0.7 and that's OK for the quality
    • Nose
      mild intense soft sherry smell, oak, grape
    • Taste
      Spicy, strong, dry sherry, clear oak, really soft at first, then becoming stronger in the mouth
    • Finish
      medium length strong finish ;
      long spicy aftertaste

  7. Ostap scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A good whisky that will meet again in casual circumstances. Qualitatively, but without any depth. Mild aroma, more expressive taste and mediocre aftertaste.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Obvious bourbon excerpt, nice, but not very meaningful. Acetone, raisins, brine, sweet raw dough, white apples, malt notes, fresh oak and a bunch of vanilla, rose petals, nuts, apricot, fragrant spices, wine finish, sweet, dessert, juicy.
    • Taste
      84 84
      At first strikingly unsweetened, and then filled with sweets, a little spicy, sour, oily, enveloping, tropical fruits (orange pulp), nutmeg, raisins.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium, dry, noticeably oak, simple and empty (especially when compared to aroma and, especially, taste).

  8. AnnEm scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: round and full-bodied. Aromatic toasty barrel seasoning. A bit of cellar muff. Roasted nuts. Nice vanilla and fresh dark fruits. But also a bit bitter apple. I also find a few herbs.

    Mouth: Tart and sweet in good balance. Well balanced here too. Pleasant, subtle cellar musty note. Fruity impression.

    Finish: nice interplay of tart and roasted-sweet notes. Fruity fresh apple. Aromatic and warming. Also quite creamy.

  10. Lenart scored this whisky 69 points Expert Junior


    Terrible experience. This whisky should be ashamed claiming to be Amontiliado finished. Other than digusting mold and chemical "sherry" notes it has nothing to offer. Even the spirit that overwhelms the drink doesn't feel as suitable for internal consumption.
