  6. dRambo scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose started nicely - in the long run I did not like the used tartaric acid so much - but with a few drops of water it wins again
    • Nose
      87 87
      Wood - fire in the resinous logs smoldering and only a hint of the smoke impregnates the room - you smell it only a moment when you just come in, then the note goes down in the other smells, sulfurized raisins, plum jam with cinnamon, blackberry purée, furniture polish- Wax mixture, at first predominantly sweet with very delicate sourish essences, the acid becomes more and more clear over time - reminds me of cheap BBQ sauce or superimposed woody wine (vinegar)
      Water does it very well - nobler, clearer, more fruity, less of this unsightly acidity, wood grinding dust, apple cider vinegar, KirschPullMoll
    • Taste
      88 88
      sweet, warming - very viscous, almost like thick syrup, wax and wood are well fed on the tongue, no bitterness and it just fits very well without water, cherries, rose hips, coffee and soft walnuts
      with the second sip, salty, light cherry notes that flash only briefly then it is primarily characterized by wax, wood and sweetness - tobacco, pepper, a hint of leather - quite one-dimensional

      A drop of water closes it - plum in Madeira meets lush MonCherie cherries with grated wood by the fireplace
    • Finish
      87 87
      warm, peppery, woody aromas, juniper, laurel, allspice, monchery with a lot and long chocolate and little cherry liqueur - quite dry and waxy

  7. pianoman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet. Raspberry syrup, blueberries, ripe plums, juicy raisins, rotten wood, some glue. Peppercorns, garden soil, some mint. Exotic grasses, a hint of orange peel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Oily, sticky. Plum jam, some cinnamon, fresh apple pie, pepper. Sugar beet syrup on farmer's bread. Dark chocolate, cocoa chips, black tea, tobacco leaves.

  8. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    fair puddle you have to like sherry whisky, for me a very pleasant malt
    • Nose
      typical red fruit, raisins
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate, oak, raspberries, Waltfrucht with: vanilla, pear
    • Finish
      long, sherry, sweet

  10. Amaliana scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Lots to sherry overloaded, thank goodness I only had the mini. Whether it is Dalmore or something else you can not taste, too bad! From me only 70 points
