Expert Senior Pollenflug Tasting note

Pollenflug gave this whisky 91 points
Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Wo ist der Alkohol? Mit enorm kräftigen 63,6% wurde der fassstarke Glenlivet abgefüllt. Ich nehme zwar ein spürbares Kühlen in der Nase wahr, jedoch meilenweit entfernt von einem unangenehmen Stechen oder Brennen. Das hätte ich ehrlich gesagt nicht erwartet. Meine Nasenspitze wird von intensiven, schweren und vielschichtigen Sherryaromen umhüllt. Unmengen an dunkler Schokolade, Kakao zum Backen, getrockneten Früchten, vor allem Datteln, Feigen und Rosinen, gieren zu Beginn nach der aromatischen Oberhand. Nach wenigen Minuten entwickelt sich der komplexe Eindruck weiter. Feine Noten von Leder, Holz (alte Zigarrenkiste), Tabakblättern und etwas Eiche runden das aromatische Profil ab. Die Vorfreude auf die Vorkostung steigt!

Taste

Der Wolf im Schafspelz. Der erste Schluck schiebt nach ca. 10-15 Sekunden im Mund gnadenlos (gut) an. Das Mundgefühl ist sehr ölig, fast buttrig, sehr vollmundig und leicht adstringierend. Ein ordentliches Prickeln (Pfeffer/Ingwer?) auf der Zungenspitze setzt ein, ohne jedoch zu unangenehm zu sein. Beim 2. und 3. Schluck reduziert sich das Prickeln spürbar. Der geübte „Fassstärke-Trinker“ wird den Tropfen mit Sicherheit auch pur sehr gut genießen können. Der hohe Alkoholgehalt lädt zudem wunderbar zum Experimentieren ein. Nun aber endlich zum Geschmack: Der schokoladige Eindruck beim Nosing setzt sich geschmacklich nahtlos fort. Dunkle Zartbitterschokolade, rote Trockenfrüchte, Datteln, Rosinen, saftige Orangen und überreife Pflaumen fluten den Gaumen. Zu den harmonischen Eichenholznoten gesellen sich weihnachtliche Gewürze hinzu. Zimt, Muskat, Tabakblätter, Leder, Röstaromen, Espresso und Walnüsse vervollständigen das schwere, sehr aromatische Konglomerat.

Finish

Lang. Sehr wärmend, weiterhin sehr mundfüllend und intensiv. Auch auf der Ziellinie dominieren zartbittere Schokoladennoten, Trockenfrüchte, Orangen, Leder und Espresso. Die feinen Röstaromen und würzigen Eichenholznoten intensivieren sich. Zum Schluss entsteht eine leichte Bitterkeit und es wird spürbar trockener am Gaumen.

Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Great Sherry aroma's, red fruit and dark pure chocolate, with some cacao notes in the background.


After some time orange peels and a little bit of honey pops up.


Taste

The dark chocolate really comes through, with lots of power (pepper/ginger). some more orange peel and berries are noticed.

Finish

Slightly creamy, long & intense.


Comments

What a great Sherry dram although it's relative younger age(almost 11 years).


The dark colour is surprisingly but amazing.


The big alcohol % doesn't botter and makes this a great sherry bomb. 


Loved it every minute.


I didn't even try adding a few drops of H2O as the whisky is fine straight out of the bottle.

I also think the black label on the bottle/tin makes the picture very beautiful. 


Great job done!

Helgo gave this whisky 88 points

Nicht ganz so kraftvoll wie das Beast bzw. die Nr. 3 der Whiskybotschaft. In der Nase sogar etwas offener und feiner. Die dunklen Trockenfrüchte nebst Gewürzregal sind sofort präsent. 


Röstaromen und Jaffa Cake folgen in großen Schritten. Die Orangenschokolade ist schon sehr präsent.


Auch dieser GL brennt fast gar nicht und ist sehr sehr ölig in der Textur. Wunderbare Sherrynoten folgen in einem sehr komplexen Umfeld ohne wirklich zu überfordern. DIe Orangenschokolade ist wieder voll da. Etwas abgestandener erkalteter Espresso mit Zucker und Salzkristallen. 


Am Ende ein dominanter eichiger schokoladiger Abgang.


Wirklich gut. Keine Spur von Jugend oder Fehlnoten. Blind hätte ich ihn wahrscheinlich volljährig geschätzt. Glenlivet selbst bekommt man aus meiner Sicht nur, wenn man es weiß. Der Whisky ist knapp an der Grenze und musste in die Flasche!

Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Dunkle dichte Sherryaromen betören die Nase, tiefrote und dunkle Früchte, in Rum eingelegte Kirschen und Pflaumen drängen sich auf, Noten von Tabak und Leder kommen hervor, eine alte Zigarrenkiste und sogar ein klein wenig Zigarrenrauch sind auch zu finden, und dann ist halt doch der Alkohol deutlich - aber nicht wirklich unangenehm!

Taste

Anfangs ein deutlicher Eindruck von Zartbitterschokolade, die Zigarrenkiste, altes modriges Holz, Tabak und eine subitle Ledrigkeit kleben am Gaumen, es folgt eine volle Eichenfracht, sehr kräftig und würzig, auch erdig, vielleicht ein wenig staubig; dann folgen etwas in den Hintergrund geratene Fruchtakzente, diesmal eher Pflaumen als Kirschen, dann später nochmal dunkle Schokolade und vielleicht eine Brise Kakao; insgesamt ein Wucht, ein heftiger Antritt, absolut stark und kräftig in vielerlei Hinsicht!

Finish

Adstringierend, und wie; es folgt eine absolut deutliche Eichenfracht - extrem würzig und gleichermaßen trocken, insgesamt sehr wärmend und lang anhaltend;

Comments

Im Großen und Ganzen ein absolut toller Malt! Total kräftig und stark im Ausdruck - fast überbordend (nicht nur die Alkoholstärke). Gediegen und mit Wucht kommt er daher - um länger zu bleiben ...

Nose

Sweet Sherry! Almost dried glue on a carpet, dried fruits, raisin, vanilla, plums, currantpie, some hazelnut, sweet gun powder, dark chocolate, some polished leather, tobacco.

Taste

Brown sugar, sherry, raisin, plums, currant, dates, dark wine gums, dark chocolate.

Finish

A long and dry finish. Dark chocolate, dried fruits, a touch of mint.

Comments

With water more fruits, but not as complex after all. Quite a nice expression of a Glenlivet bottled by "Die Whiskybotschaft".
