Nose

The nose is honeysweet and reminds me more of a GlenDronach than an a’bunadh at first. I get loads of toffee, white chocolate, cranberries and rose water, drenched in orange juice. But there are hardly any of the typical dark sherry hints such as plums, dades or raisins. Nevertheless, this is a very inviting and lovely nose, do not get me wrong. But surprisingly different from what I expect from an a’bunadh.

Taste

On the palate it is – obviously – a big boy. The high ABV makes me gasp for breath. Again cranberries and oranges, upholstered with nutmeg, pepper and some cocoa. Good, but not overly complex.

Finish

The finish is medium long and offers some peach.

Comments

The influence of the sherry cask was clearly a lot less than on earlier batches, but it remains one helluva dram. The price may vary though… from 50 to 70 EUR.

Nose

Плотный, сухой, пряная древесина, сухофрукты, чай (сухой), мебельный лак, коробка от сигар, трубочный табак, сушёные грибы, подвяленый виноград.

Taste

Мощный, насыщенный, жжёные сухари, пряный дуб, лёгкая перечность, сухофрукты.

Finish

Пряное, сухофрукты, лёгкие перечные нотки, сливочные тона, жжёные сухари, помадка, дуб.

Comments

Ну что, конвейер хересных монстриков продолжает выпуск продукции, данный батч весьма неплох, не очень сладок, скорее нейтрален, не поражает разнообразием производных, но достаточно насыщен и силён.

[November, 2016]  I emptied a bottle together with friends. 

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 90.  My notes state a very complex and rich sherry profile with slight sulphury notes (bearable).  Without the sulphur I would have rated it 92+ points.  Very, very quaffable...

There is no accounting for taste...
