  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Madness! What a syrupy soup. Fruit, sweetness, coffee, tobacco and leather, everything is included! I am thrilled, a hammer material!
    • Nose
      Wonderfully sweet sherry rises from the glass. A subtle leather note mixes with the "sticky" sweetness. A fine aroma of fruity tangerines and overripe dates or raisins comes to light. A discreet muff lies over the nose. Syrup-like sweetness and a lot of caramel complete the perfect nose.
    • Taste
      Wow, what is that? A syrupy liquid makes my taste buds dance. Fine roasted aromas, caramel sweetness and a touch of tobacco play together. An aroma of freshly brewed coffee rises in my nose. Fruity orange aromas and sweet plums harmonize very well with the sticky, caramel sweetness.
    • Finish
      Powerful sweetness and fruity caramel begins the finish. Slight sharpness is added for a moment, but is immediately overpowered by an intense coffee aroma with lots of sugar. Seasoning and leather, even some tobacco, now dominate the finish. In the finish, the syrupy sweetness is reflected again and exudes an intense and plump mouthfeel.

    For friends of dark sherry whiskys a great thing. wlk 18-2
    • Nose
      The first thing I have to think about is a wine finish ... But this impression somehow disappears again. Then come raisins, dried figs and dates, beautiful spice, sherry flavors. Pickled cherries. The spice increases with time, it gets woody and peppery. At the back a clayey, earthy note, like dry forest soil. Very pleasant, makes you hungry for the first sip.
    • Taste
      Fruity, with the dried fruits and cherries from the nose. Sweet and almost sticky. But also cool and mentholig. With the cherries and the chilling in the taste similar to the children em-eukal sweets. Sweet and spicy plum jam.
    • Finish
      Even in the finish, he transports a tremendous sweetness over his tongue. Some wood is included, the spice from the nose is also back, but more subtle. The (cherry) sweetness is already very dominant. At the back he gets a little watery.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sticky sweet whisky that sometimes leaves a little bit of balance. Maybe I rate it a bit too bad, but sometimes the PX looks a little bit upset. It is always tasty and tasty.
    • Nose
      Sweet, spicy, light sulfur, vinous, a certain acidity of the oak plays in the nose the balance to the sweetness
    • Taste
      very sweet, wild berries, light alcohol, subtle sulfur and also here a slight tart fruit note.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, oaky and sweet, some tobacco, some fruit.

  5. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Taste
      Spicy creamy sweetness, orange juice, raisins, the oak is again great

  6. Othorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Of course, you have to like cute, but I do and I think that's really great! For a 90, the sweet syrup note dominates my taste and finish but a bit too much
    • Nose
      dark, old sherry, very sweet after forest honey and caramel, Werther's real, raisins, musty dry plums, an elegant, sweet orange note, the wooden cupboard at grandma's inside, everything beautifully interwoven and balanced, because I do not like my nose pull out more, cool!
    • Taste
      Very sweet and powerful, oily, almost like syrup in the mouth, caramel sweets, roasted nuts, orange juice, maple syrup, latte, forest honey and a hint of marzipan,
    • Finish
      the oily sweetness lasts forever, with milky coffee, caramel, maple syrup and a hint of freshness, like the idea of ​​peppermint tea

  7. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very sweet, blind I would have typed on a Glen Els. A nice malt, but for a higher rating missing some strength.
    • Nose
      The can not hide its origin, immediately shows an insanely sweet aroma after PX-Sherry. Caramel syrup. Honey. Coke. Dried fruits. Orange peel. Behind it a musty note reminiscent of an old, damp cellar.
    • Taste
      The sweetness of the nose continues seamlessly. Honey. Caramel syrup. Raisins. Orange peel. Then spicy. Wet wood. Filter coffee. Dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long. Very dry with a lot of oak and again very sweet. Caramel. A light glue note. Some pepper. White coffee. Leather.

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Old wet wood, raisins, overripe plums. Brown sugar, fir honey, some resin. Orange jelly.
    • Taste
      Very sweet with some chili. Sugared oranges, lots of honey. Chilled mint tea.

  9. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He does not need many words to describe him: an absolute PX sherry cracker! It lacks a counterpoint? I do not care! Here you get the full sweet broadside and that and especially in the taste. Exactly what you expect when you read 19 years in the PX barrel. Any sweetmouth would love that.
    • Nose
      Sweet-tasting PX sherry at its best rises from the glass, marzipan, caramel, chewy syrupy coke, blackberries, honey, sugar, plums, raisins, any kind of sweet dark to dried fruit that you can imagine - especially dates and figs, a lot of toffee and a kind of sweet coffee like coffee Baileys with Irish Cream, then comes slowly and with increasing clarity the oak, the 19 years must indeed be found behind this sugar coat
    • Taste
      Sweetness and even more sweetness, then spice and strength with a little oak, accompanied by an incredible amount of toffee and a hint of coffee. The whole mouth is covered with sticky sweetness.
    • Finish
      Toffee, caramel, marzipan, light herbal notes or rather menthol, sweetened coffee again. Only very little bitterness of the oak, raisins, dried fruits, the described Seville oranges I do not find

  10. Murxus scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    One of these PX which are drowned in sirupy sweetness. Missing a counterpart like a strong whisky (which Glenlossie is not) or at least corresponding wood.
