Expert Senior Pollenflug Tasting note

Pollenflug gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Volle Sherryaromen steigen aus dem Glas empor. Besonders Himbeeren, saftige Orangen und Rosinen sind sofort präsent, im Hintergrund verweilt ein Hauch Vanille. Etwas Leder, feine Tabaknoten, eine große Portion Nüsse und würzige Holznoten setzen einen feinen Kontrast zur fruchtigen Süße. Die Nase macht Lust auf mehr!

Taste

Recht kräftiger Antritt (46% Alkoholgehalt) mit vielen dunklen, süßen Früchten. Himbeeren, schwarze Johannisbeeren, Pflaumen, Rosinen und Datteln setzen deutliche Akzente. Zartbittere Schokolade, Nüsse, Röstaromen, ein wenig Zimt und auch die bereits in der Nase wahrnehmbaren Tabak-, Leder- und würzigen Holznoten bilden eine schöne Gegensätzlichkeit zu den süßen, reifen Früchten. Hier stimmt für mich auf der "Harmonie-Ebene" so gut wie alles - ein tolles Gleichgewicht der verschiedenen Aromen wurde geschaffen.

Finish

Mittellang bis langer Abgang. Die Restsüße der fruchtigen Beeren weicht schnell den Tabak- und Holznoten. Die Eichenfracht wird würziger und leicht trockener, mit einer dezenten Bitterkeit. Auch hier finden sich wieder etwas Leder und Schokolade.

Color

Nose

ripe cherries, overbrewed fruit tea, even apple tea, very "heavy", doesn't open up very quickly, very fresh (oloroso?) sherry, menthol, almonds, touch of rosewater, a bit dirty, some struck matches, old coins, touch of christmas spices, balsamic vinegar

Taste

thick, very winy mouthfeel, "fresh"/ un-aged dry red wine, nutmeg, raspberry fizzy candy, again overbrewed fruit tea, there is some oak developing (not too sure if that's european...), orange peal, maybe a hint of leather/tobacco

Finish

yep, there is a lot of oak, still that imense sherry influence, some menthol, dries even more, but to me lacks some substance, not too long...

Comments

american oak, I guess ... whisky and sherry are kind of seperated, actually I would say it lacks some single malt character, this is full on sherry. Probably that cask  shortly seasoned soaked up  a lot of young sherry. Especially in the finish I expected it to be more substantial. Don't get me wrong, this no bad stuff, but at least I did expect more complexity and ripe aromas like leather, tobacco etc. Reminds me of A'bunadhs in a way, but older, if you know what I mean ... to sum it up: not overly complex, but unique, kind of odd, not too sweet (like that) heavily sherried single malt of decent age for a very good price.

Beim ersten Verriechen Himbeeren, Pflaumen, kaum saftig, ein ordentlicher Schwall Süße, nach längerer Zeit etwas Vanillegeruch. Nach 20 Minuten keinerlei Einzelfrüchte mehr da, aber die Sherryfruchtigkeit.

Taste

Ohne Wasser kann man den Malt kaum 20 Sekunden im Mund behalten, der drückt gegen die Zähne - gut. Kurz Leder zu vernehmen, dann herbe Schokolade, Tabak breitet sich im Gaumen aus, dieser Geschmack wird bleiben.  Es wird trocken, es bleibt trocken. Ich schmecke den Alkohol nicht, der Malt ist schwer und senkt sich auf der Zunge.

Finish

Die Fruchtigkeit verschwindet vom Gaumen, leichte Trockenheit bleibt. Ledrigkeit. Typisch alter Sherry, irgendwie feucht. Nach einigen Minuten: frisches Gras auf der Zunge - sehr interessant.

[June, 2017]  ...and the devil p...ed in another cask (or where else come these nasty sulphury flavours of struck matches from - as the copper of the stills and condensers usually filters out all the natural sulphury aromas of the spirit, that is why they are made of expensive copper instead of cheaper steel).  Whenever someone in a Scottish distillery detects a sulphury cask he (or she) cries out "S..t!  This is rubbish!" and then calls the marketing department to announce a further release for the German market as this is the only one that welcomes sulphury whisky releases.  Guess why "whisky.de" is able to offer this 19 year old heavily sherried dram for 60 Euro only (I bet they do not subsidies it but make a profit margin even at this price).

I am german by myself but even I do not understand why Germans still love the smell of gunpowder and burnt matches (after two lost wars).  It is not just that they do not recognise this flavour (as no one mentions it in his/her tasting note) - many Germans (even some very good friends of mine) obviously appreciate "the smell of hell". 

No, I will not impose my taste on anyone else - whoever loves this stuff please enjoy as much of it as you like.  But to me these flavours block my tastebuds for hours (if not days) and kill all other aromas instantly - that is why I hate sulphur (besides its scurfy and disgusting mouthfeel).  Sorry folks, but this IS rubbish to me!

PS:  Immediately after opening this bottle the sulphury nose and taste is extreme (66 points), if you leave the bottle open for a while it will vanish slowly to a somewhat bearable level (still not enjoyable to me - 78 points).  I comped this bottle to a (german!) guy that liked its taste...

kurz etwas säuerlich (gärendes Fallobst), dann fruchtig-süß, Kirsch-/Erdbeermarmelade, Rosinen, Schokolebkuchen, altes Leder, süßlicher Tabak... vielversprechend!

Taste

viel Schokolade... Weinbrandbohnen, Kirschwasserpralinen... Schokolade geht in Richtung gesüßter Kaffee, aber so'ne fruchtige Schnapsnote bleibt, dazu Eiche, Leder, sanfte Schärfe, fett, vollmundig, lecker

Finish

lang, warm, süß, Bitterschokolade mit Schwarzkirsche/Brombeersirup

Comments

Saulecker, süffig, toll! Und für 55€ (bzw. sogar nur 45-50, wenn man sie mit der TWS-Clubmitgliedschaft erworben hat) ein Superschnäppchen.

Muss ein tolles Lager sein, wo man einfach mal 5 aufeinanderfolgende Fässer zusammenkippt und dann sowas rauskommt.

[September, 2017]  What a chiseler!  The guy I comped this heavily sulphur-spoiled bottle sent me some mystery samples to try (samples with no information about what it is).  Among them a small sample of this devilish stuff from my own bottle...

As he and his german friends obviously liked it he probably wanted to test if my tastebuds have converted in the meantime.  Sorry, but they did not!  Still this is heavily sulphur-spoiled whisky with a disgusting mouthfeel that I do not like.  But what I really like is that others were able to enjoy this bottle finally - that otherwise would have gone down the drain...

Beim ersten Riechen hab ich sofort ein altes abgewetztes muffiges Ledersofa mit speckigen Armlehnen vor Augen, bei dem sich schon langsam die rostigen Sprungfedern durchdrücken – klar, ich hätte natürlich auch einfach „leichte Schwefelnoten“ schreiben können, klingt aber nicht so anschaulich… :)
Dazu eine ganze Kiste mit Dörrobst, vor allem Pflaumen, Feigen, Aprikosen, dunkles Salz-Karamell, Rosinen, reife Grapefruits, Sauerkirschen, Malz, ein Hauch Vanille, herbe Orangenschalen und vor allem eine volle Ladung leicht muffiges erdiges Eichenholz, alles überaus kräftig und schön ruppig.

Taste

Der Antritt ist stark, trocken und wärmend, wieder viel Dörrobst und saftige Pampelmusen, geröstete Pinienkerne, dunkle Gewürze, kandierte Orangenschalen, etwas Lakritze und ein permanenter schöner herber Grundton aus durchweichtem Holz.

Finish

Im mittellangen Abgang dominieren eine herbe Fruchtigkeit von Grapefruits, Zarbitterschokolade, Gewürznelken, Anis und vor allem altes Eichenholz.

Comments

Für eine allgemein gefällige Clubabfüllung ist dieser Glenrothes ganz schön ruppig und kantig geraten. Die ausgesuchten Fässer haben ganze Arbeit geleistet und neben den kraftvollen Sherryaromen auch den erdigen Brennereicharakter wahren können. Sicher nicht jedermanns Sache, aber auch nicht übermäßig komplex und fordernd.
