  1. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It looks modern from the nose, but no longer in taste. Unusual aroma constellation, but very harmonious in itself. A sherry bomb of yesteryear. A really interesting and then probably very unusual bottling for the 500th anniversary of the University of Aberdeen.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Spicy sherry, next to it little else has a chance. Strong barrel acid, looks familiar, but not old. Judging by the nose, it could have been bottled today. With Katjes yoghurt gums Sebastian gets to the point. Liquorice, but also a typical sherry profile with roasted aromas, beet syrup and very dark honey. Warms something fresher, sweeter, less severe.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Acid first, then roasted aromas then sweetness, but the acidity remains dominant. It looks surprisingly fruity and fresh, not at all like a modern sherry barrel storage.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is rather short, here too with a focus on the acid.
