  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A great Glen Ord, the Distillery is always exceptional at Good Sherry Casks, never having had a boring standard here. From 3 similar sherry SMWS from Oloroso / PX station wagons have been my clear favorite of the day!
    • Nose
      Very aromatic nose, full of orange oil and bitters, fine leather, chocolate (rather whole milk), ginger, cardamom, creme brulee, some apple peel and coconut, touch Jalapenos vllt.
    • Taste
      Powerful, first great leather notes, ham, some steak actually and hoppy undertones as the name suggests, darkest malt, grapefruit and orange peel, aromatic bitters, soy sauce, nutmeg, thyme and other herbs over the meat
    • Finish
      Furthermore beautiful ham sipped in sherry, dark malt and herbs, medium with full throat and beautiful astringent finish

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Warm, rosy amber.

    After thirteen years in a hogshead, we transferred this to a
    second-fill Oloroso butt; the panel agreed the nose had lots going on –
    leather, desiccated coconut, marmalade, chocolate gingers, spun sugar, crème
    brûlée and honeysuckle. The palate offered peppery jamon Serrano, cough syrup,
    dark wheat beer (Dunkelweizen), sticky toffee pudding, orange zest and bitter
    chocolate. The reduced nose had heavy fruit cake, black bun, rye bread,
    amontillado and an apothecary’s counter – one panellist remembered his
    childhood bogie cart (wood, carpet, grease). The palate now seemed to us sweeter,
    richer and spicier – developing custard, liquorice and rolled Japanese
    omelettes with hoisin sauce.

    Iodine? salt, almonds, lemon, watermelon? raspberries. Very refined whisky (as for me, too), but pleases with unusual aromatic shades!

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful example from The SMWS
    • Nose
      Rich, firm, earthy, sawdust, dried fruit, black treacle and orangy (reduced: more citrus fruit - oranges)
    • Taste
      Smokey, sherry, drying, raisins and sultanas (reduced: more peardrops and a lovely spicyness)
    • Finish
      Woodspices, sweet with a dry sherry like finish
