  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I don't think I could simply quaff this and I would struggle to drink a bottle given the richness and the wood; the occasional glass is fine.
    • Nose
      sweet, chocolate, strong oranges
    • Taste
      sweet citrus decaying to popcorn
    • Finish
      corn becomes bitter wood/tannic as the cask takes over a bit too much; repeat sips tend to suppress the woodiness quite a bit but it is still the weak point.

    Excellent 
    • Nose
      Powerful, high abv, needs water even to nose. Dry Sherry, walnuts
    • Taste
      Very good 

  4. nallacam scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A successful filling of Adelphi, for more than 90 points, the finish would still fit ;-)
    • Nose
      sherry sweetness, pounded almonds, forest honey, milk chocolate, tobacco, dark caramel, after a few minutes the alcoholic flavor disappears and it is very harmonious and balanced ...
    • Taste
      Strong onset, very sweet with slight bitterness, above all stands a nice chocolate note, moist tobacco, dried berries. On the tongue is clearly the oak to taste ... European oak!
    • Finish
      Only the departure reduces the enjoyment of the whisky, which still earns me 90 points. The bitterness is the last thing that remains, not dramtic, but it's bitter ...
