  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    for me immediately a summer whisky - extremely tasty and crazy - but delicious Ranking: 1.Nase and mouth, 2. Reminder good oak on the palate, nose, mouth and finish harmonize, the alcohol is perfectly integrated, the interplay of the aromas brings neat tension, its extravagant taste is invigorating, amusing and pleased, I can not find a mistake - only that he is different and the Brennereicharakter only tastes hard therefore 90 out of 100 points
    • Nose
      Lemon caramels, asters in moor water spray, juicy orange meat, bitter ethereal phenols, wormwood, gentian, sweetish damp wood, foul soil in the background wow: o what was that barrel, TnG is right, it's Campari, for my terms even a Campari Orange , the nose is a lot of fun
    • Taste
      a soft, soft start with an immediate wow effect, it floods your mouth with a hot wave of bitter orange in caramel, wood with caramelized sugar, very sweet with a bitter aftertaste and a smoky throat feeling, the oak is beautiful, fades sweetly - tart with chocolate and orange
    • Finish
      long, dry, consistent with nose and mouth, all aromas appear alternately

    what a board, completely unexpected, resembling neither an operating room nor a typical MoS sherry barrel. Has something!
    • Nose
      Pur: intense caramel, a very own - to a Russian candy that I have enjoyed recently - sweetness lying somewhere between creme brulee and lemon sorbet. Unfortunately, I miss the maritime and the beach feeling from the OP. With water: now very slightly salty, apricot, so behind the hides the operation.
    • Taste
      Pure: in the beginning, I'm greeted by a barrage of chocolate rum, completely untypical. White chocolate, the thickness of aldi with almond pieces in it. Slightly bitter then, blood orange, and then dark honey. Krass because different. With water: tasty, not so cute sweet again, even here slightly salty, maybe I just want to taste it ;-)
    • Finish
      long and tart fruity with Werther's real feeling

    Less sherry, more salty Old Pulteney note

  4. Abadon05 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great mix. The sherry is good and above all not too heavily involved. Something comes out of the distillery character, especially in the finish. A Pulteney in small parts, but rather unusual in large parts.
    With water it loses something and becomes more alcoholic (especially in the nose). Since he would need little or no water.

      Unusual, but quite interesting. When approaching gently, the memories come to mind immediately when you are standing in the parking lot of a distillery for the first time. Cinnamon, fermented fruit with a nice sweetness, especially apples and pears. In addition forest and acacia honey and some lemon and oak. With a stronger smell, the sweetness disappears somewhat. Plums, oranges and I also imagine some sea salt.
      If you smell too strongly, you can clearly feel the strength of the barrel. However, he loses with water.

      Extremely sweet and then comes the barrel strength. A lot of honey and a lot of orange. The red berries tend to hold back. Strawberries and chocolate. Also a little glucose.
      With water, it becomes much calmer and gentler, almost drinkable.
    • Finish

      Drying easily. Some milk chocolate. The lemon remains. Some salt and bitterness are also evident. The oak gets through more. And the orange stays on the palate for a long time, as does the honey.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Funny whisky, orange, bitter, sherry, sounds less like whisky than southern aperitifs. I still like it very much in its originality.
    • Nose
      A strong oak flavor, almost a little "rustic oak", strong, somewhat closed, mineral, smells rather dry, only with time a light, sticky sweetness comes to the fore in the background, but is then clearly felt in the second nose.
    • Taste
      In the mouth: sugar water, orange soda, then alcohol, menthol, pepper, oak, many bitter aromas ,. Orange and Bitter: Campari!
    • Finish
      Bittersweet, orange peel, Campari, oak, bitterness, the sweetness is sometimes almost a little put on.

  6. Cartman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    From blind tasting: Nose: Marzipan potatoes, plum jam, black pepper, empty coffee can, old varnish, black cherries, menthol, tonka bean, juicy apple pie Taste: creamy, tidy alcohol (estimate the 60% - I need water), almonds, buttery, slightly oak bitterness, ripe papaya but without the sweetness, sweetness is barely there, chocolate giants, espresso, Finish: Buttery, slightly bitter, then add a touch of strawberries and raspberries behind

  9. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nice Pulteney, and a lovely balance in the sherry.
    • Nose
      Sherry, martime, rich, sweet and orangy.
    • Taste
      full, dry, woody (reduced more fruity and round)
    • Finish
      Warm, spicy with a fruity note.
