Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Starke Nase, der Alkohol ist zu spüren, dann ganz fruchitg -- reife Marillen, eher helle Früchte. Beim zweiten Probieren wird das Bukett von saftigen Marillen und hellen Trauben noch intensiver. Dann gesellt sich die Eiche mit ein paar zarten Kräuternoten dazu. / Mit ein paar Tropfen Wasser wird er "leichter".

Taste

Die 50,5% sind gut merkbar. Die Marillenfruchtigkeit geht über in reife Orange und eine Mischung aus hellen und dunklen Trauben, leichte Bitterkeit mischt sich drunter. Auch im Mund kommt etwas Eiche dazu. / Mit wenig Wasser tritt dann die leichte Schärfe mit Eichennote in den Vordergrund.

Finish

Der Abgang ist mittellang und wird zunehmend von leichter Eichenbitterkeit geprägt. / Ein paar Tropfen Wasser verändern auch den Abgang in Richtung würziger Eichennoten, er bleibt lang und wärmend.

Comments

Für einen sherryfassgereiften Whisky erstaunlich "hell" mit Marillen- und leichter Zitrusfruchtigkeit und angenehmer Pfefferschärfe. Ist m.E. in der abgefüllten Stärke und ohne Verdünnung am besten und vielschichtigsten wahrnehmbar.

Color

Nose

Rather minty for a sherry cask (was it first matured in bourbon?), then sherry, raisin, plum, orange, polished oak and barley.

Taste

Quite drying, with hay, peach, mint, and loads of wood influence (wood, pepper).

Finish

Not as cloying as expected, on pepper and ginger. Next, there is sherry and almond.

Comments

A weird whisky, seems a bit out of balance. However, it's tasty.

Cheers! Paul

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Big and boozy. Sweet Spices. Sherry. Aged Rum.

Taste

Mouthfeel is very oily and dense. Red fruit sweetness. Hint of citrus peel (lots of citrus through the nose). Peppery, but not spicy. Slight bitter medicinal/cough syrup, but in a good way.

Finish

Long and lingering. Dark bitter chocolate. Sherry sweetness. Salty breeze. Creamy.

Nose

Fresh, citrusy, buttery, nutty, fruity, green bananas, touch of sherry wood - really not bad

Taste

Wow, punchy, rich, fruity, citrusy, oranges, good sherry wood and subtle sweetness, clean and pure - Great!

With water it becomes much smoother and more fruity - more toffee and something spicy like cinnamon
Finish

Medium long and burning

Comments

It just convinced me with the first sip - Fantastic whisky!

Wonderful Glen Scotia from a sherry cask. Everything you would expect from this combination. The sherry notes are very present, but not overwhelming. Wonderfully blanced and full of flavours. Great bottling for a reasonable price!
