  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Horny nose. If that were not, that would be Aberlour-a'bunadh class for me. Which of course is on the one hand already a delicious whisky, on the other hand means that the 22 years are not really reflected in the taste. Pure data, 22J, barrel size, 1st fill sherry, the price is OK. But in terms of enjoyment, the nose does not quite justify for me personally the surcharge of <60 € / 0,7l (a'bunadh) to 90 € / 0,5l.
    • Nose
      burned match, dark chocolate, pungency ... with some water then 2 new notes, once something spicy-organic, horse (alive) with maggi, then sweet-sour-fruity, a mixture of plum jam and beet syrup ... later / with still Some water becomes cowshed and domino - funny.
    • Taste
      Cocoa, sugar beet syrup, Storck giants, old ground pepper, centennial sawdust, raisins ... pure or at first in the mouth he likes me best, juicier, a little fruit acid, the woodiness has edgier; diluted or longer in the mouth it is rounder, sweeter, chocolatier, the wood cozy, dry ... unfortunately no Maggi! ;-)
    • Finish
      long, hot, dry, almost dried out, cocoa, wood, pepper, a residue beet syrup

    I'm actually a fan of sulphurous whiskys, but I can't enjoy them. This flawed, acidic sulfur note is so dominant in taste that nothing can avoid it. It's a shame.

    beautifully matured spicy malt with little dominant sherry and herbal seasoning - needs a few drops of water for the nose and palate
    • Nose
      burnt matchstick. with a few drops of water - passed crops of blueberry, freshly cut green twigs, mint, orange oil, rosemary, citrus, spicy broth, a bit meaty, overall rather sweet and acid
    • Taste
      Chocolate, sulphurised raisins, cherries, dried blueberries, oak sawdust, herbal herbaceous notes - slightly dry and beautifully spicy - light wood - slightly dry
    • Finish
      woody herbaceous, with sulphurous smoke, beautiful fruit note that does not dominate - increasingly dry

  9. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is raw, strong, schwefelschwanger, extreme. Where: the departure is less extreme and diverse.
    • Nose
      Dark fruit, baked apple, some menthol. There's another note that I can not figure out what it might be; goes for the first time in the direction of soup spice / Maggi. The alcohol is well integrated for the nose.
    • Taste
      But now: The alcohol is there, right after a strong sulfur trace. As hell. Eichenbitterkeit. Sherry. Maggi. Ahem. A thicker board than the Glen Garioch sherry bombs and almost as strong as my previous super-sulfur bomb Glen Scotia 2000 by Cadenhead - but I find the sulfur better integrated.
    • Finish
      Also in the finish sulfur, Maggi and oak take over the command. However, the extreme notes dissipate relatively quickly, leaving behind some oak with well spiced dark fruits.

    Sulfur monster!
    Some like it, but I'm not a friend of Kuhstallflavour ;-)

    The malt has gotten tidy sherry and with its nearly 64% also hearty alcoholic. For me a drinkable malt and who is on sulfur in combination with sherry, is the right place!
