  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Color gold
    - a very powerful malt
    - very voluminous, robust, but also tasty
    - You can hardly taste anything from the sherry finish
    - for 80 € the half liter is very sporty, but for the age
    still ok
    • Nose
      sweet, but the alcohol stings right up the nose
    • Taste
      oW: powerful start, very mouth-filling, vanilla, toffee, very astringent (surprisingly tastes more like bourbon than sherry storage);

      mW: becomes milder and more pleasant but still the strong character remains
    • Finish
      long-lasting voluminous finish;
      long, drying aftertaste

    By the way, the color on the photo is misleading, there probably has been a slight involvement of Photoshop, it actually is a lot lighter! ;-)

    Hm, somehow the whole thing does not seem right, but it's still good to drink. The finish has something rumartig in itself. The alcohol could be better integrated.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Slightly brittle in the nose, fermented fallen fruit, dirty bouquet at the beginning. Even after standing it remains dirty, salty, but at the same time looks sweeter and more sedated, a lot of vanilla and caramel next to now rather unripe acting yellow fruit, the alcohol has disappeared from the nose. With a little movement he becomes weedy and iodised. There are chemical and mineral legends and he also has something slightly maritime in it. Heat makes it again very mild and soft, creamy panna cotta, some honey and cooked fruit.
    • Taste
      Quite powerful, tingling onset and a very interesting blend of herbs, salt and light honey. The mouthfeel is not particularly dense, but also not watery.
    • Finish
      Here he seems rather sugary, as of molasses, and a bit sloppy. The finish is not very long and dries quickly. Here are all at once tannins.

    Bruichladdich, 23yo, Distilled 1992, 13 yo Sherry Cask Finish, 51.1%, Only 40 Bottles, Clansman Malt Connection April 15, 2016 by Ch.Priess Midnight over Loch Indaal, the last lights in Port Charlotte have long gone out. At my campfire warms the last glow, and single sparks fly over the calm sea. The starry tent is reflected on dark waters and fills the night with a soft glow. May this summer never end ..........
    Colour: strong gold Nose: Sweet honeydew melons begin the fruit-fruity, followed by peaches and pears. Apple peels on polished counter. Drying leather jacket after summer storm, freshly cut grass. Bees humming lazily around their stick, a hint of honey mixed with a slightly bitter note of dry firewood. Slowly, the sherry storage shows up as well. Green walnuts and wild strawberries, then rose petals and vanilla. Plum jam on toasted bread and a hint of tobacco leaves. Everything beautifully worn by 51.1%
    Mouth: The mouth fills up sweet and waxy. Here, too, the sherry comes out a little stronger. Fruity, peppered with rubber drops, sets the malt going. For over 50% surprisingly mild, with just a hint of pepperiness, the whisky of the tongue leaves enough time to process the impressions. Honey mixes with some oak and red fruits are garnished with Bourbon vanilla. Again, the honeydew melon, ripe and wrapped in a thin strip of ham. Beeswax soaked leather rags, creamy alpine chocolate ...... ..after a bit bitter. Fruit salad at a picnic on a summer meadow, fresh wood wool and almost imperceptible, some sea salt. Freshly oiled teak furniture and again and again this sweetness. After that: Waxy layer on oranges, sweet and dry ......... .and that for a very long time.
    Conclusion: This bottling is a summer dram. Oh well, this malt IS the summer! Seductively sweet and yet incredibly complex. A balmy summer night by the sea, ice cream on the beach promenade and stories around the campfire. With his first bottling, the Clansman Malt Connection hit the mark.
