  3. Cubey666 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Tasted and scored during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2017. (PO17)

    The Sherry cask is rather dominant in this one. Overruling the distillery profile for me.

    I went for a Speysider - GlenSherry,

  4. erikz scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this blind and would have sworn this was a sherried Speysider. I took a guess it was a Longmorn. Alcohol content seems higher then 48% on the palate.
    • Nose
      Leather, tobacco, raisins, milk chocolate. Sharp and earthy. Don't smell anything else than the sherry notes.
    • Taste
      Fatty sherry. Not really the earthy sherry I smelled, more red fruits on the palate: raspberry, cherries and strawberries. Minty, herbal, spicy with clove and mace.
    • Finish
      White pepper, sickly sweet, reasonably warm. Long and dry with a lot of salt. Tobacco comes back in the finish, and some spices like clove and nutmeg.

  5. Sandman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasted during ProefOlympics 2017
    • Nose
      Chocolate, raisin cake, cherry, touch of sulfur, strawberries, metallic tone, cranberry, apple, orange and hint of maggi.
    • Taste
      Cherries, strawberries, dark chocolate, raisins, hazelnut, hint of maggi herbs, hints of metal, honey, cranberry, apple and orange peel.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, greasy, light pepper, hazelnut, cranberry, elastic, garlic and orange peel.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Quite Glengoyne-y. Not really better than the 21YO, so not worth its money.
    • Nose
      Sherry but a bit clean initially. Caramel, raisin, apple and cranberry. Water adds clay.
    • Taste
      Raisin, apple, caramel and a little hazelnut. Again that clay when adding water, plus praliné.
    • Finish
      Raisin, apple and caramel.
