Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Quite strong and heavy. Good amount of sweetness from vanilla next to sherry tones. This baby gives a lot of punch! Fresh oranges and dark chocolate with some seasalt.

Taste

Fruit mixed with black pepper. Chocolate with chilli peppers. Raisins and some apple.

Finish

Big and mouthfilling, but not overly long. Cacao, vanilla and gets a little bitter.

Comments

I you like your sherry, I mean whisky like a bomb go for it. Still the 105, is a better value for money.

Die Eiche und der Alkohol dominiert, danach alles schnell verblasst, eine nur leichte Feuchtigkeit bleibt

Gut trinkbar und wie für Glenfarclas typisch viel Wertigkeit für nen schmalen Euro :-)

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Direkt und unmissverständlich -> Sherry, jung und intensiv. Es ist zu spüren, dass wir es hier mit einer Fassstärke zu tun haben. Kaum ist man sich gewiss, eine junge und wilde Sherrybombe unter der Nase zu haben, kommen schwerere Aromen durch gemischt mit Holz, die ich eher bei nicht ganz so jungen Whiskys erwarten würde. Rosinen, Walnuss, Zwetschgen, Eichenwürze – das alles präsentiert in kraftvoller Intensität.

Wasser: Ein paar Tropfen Wasser heben die Nussigkeit mehr hervor


Taste

Kraftvoll und durchaus von einem spürbaren Alkohol geprägt, schon etwas alkoholisch scharf, prickelnd und intensiv. Es dominiert eine Würze und Zartbitterkeit. Früchte kommen durch. Es ist weder ein sonderlich süßes, noch ein sonderlich trockenes Mundgefühl. Zwetschgen und Walnuss zusammen mit der immer präsenten Würze bleiben als die drei markanten Geschmäcker im Mund.

Wasser: Etwas milder.


Finish

Die Wärme im Rachen bleibt lang, der Geschmack bleibt mittellang und geprägt von der Würze.


Comments

Blindverkostung: Ohne Wasser etwas zu krass für mich in den meisten Momenten, mit ein paar Tropfen hingegen durchaus lecker. 83 Punkte

Nose

A full nose of sherry sweetness. Light oak and the better quality mix of herbs. Light smoke on the edge.

Taste

Spicy with a sugery sweetness, sherry and smoke. Little refreshing  orange sourishness, malt and vanilla.

Finish

Medium finish, sweet, warming, oak and a very fine bitterness.

Nice sherried sipping whisky (well, maybe a bit too strong at nearly 60% for just "sipping"). It takes water well, but it remains to be not overly complex and quite similar to the Glenfarclas 105, if I remember that one correctly. Not really worth the premium compared to that, I'm afraid.

Nose

A sweet, yet darker side of sherry if you ask me. It comes across as quite punchy, with sweetness, sourness and some salinity. It's as if you are walking in a pine forest, close to the sea, with this pure air. Next to that, there is orange, raisin, cherry brandy, vanilla and mint. Quite appealing.

Taste

It's remarkably full bodied, with ample sweet notes of raisin, cherry, jam, red apple, and fresh (slightly pleasantly sour) orange. Strangely enough, it reminds me also of peanuts in a way, but then a sweetened variant. Further, there is vanilla and a hint of spice.

Finish

The finis is again rather sweet with a nice sour touch. The jammy fruitiness remains dominant, but also delivers the freshness that's needed. There is little room for spice (pepper).

Comments

High value for money, especially for the lovers of sweet and fresh sherry matured whisky.

Cheers! Paul
