Quercus & Palomino 8yo Bottling Note

Feast your eyes upon Quercus & Palomino & Oxidation & Sitting, a sherried 8 year old single malt Scotch whisky from an undisclosed distillery up in the Speyside region. Well, we say "feast your eyes", but the bottle itself isn't particularly intricate or zazzy. However, the whisky within is marvellous stuff, forged by the things the name references - just like its Islay sibling, Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire. Boasting familiar notes of dried fruit, chocolate and soft spices, Quercus & Palomino & Oxidation & Sitting makes for a top pick when you fancy sipping on some Speyside single malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Chocolate chip cookies, honeyed barley, raisins and dried apricot, hickory, pecan and peppercorn.

Palate: Marmalade on granary toast, cherries and almonds, malty chocolate, a very light whiff of baked earth and a drop of maple syrup.

Finish: Sherry-soaked fruit, gingerbread and woody spices.

Overall: The weighty sherried elements stand out brilliantly, imparting further complexity and boldness to the whisky's profile.

Quercus & Palomino & Oxidation & Sitting 8 Year Old Reviews

Not for me - better to drink sherry of you want something this sweet.

Sweet...very very sweet. Sherry, tangerines, hazelnuts & oak wood. Tried desperately to find elements other than make syrup but just sweet. Good for cocktails or as an introduction for non experienced whisky drinkers who don't like Smoke/ peat. There's no show without punch and there's no punch. Not worth trying and some other reviews IMHO are off target with Glenfarclas comparisons which is a lovely whisky more likely to be Cardhu.

Good, but not as good as the Islay bottling from the same series.

For the money, it's not bad. It has a decent nose, and starts off well. But there's just too much bitter oak flavour in the finish.

The sister bottling from Islay (Seaweed and something) is much better (I would say excellent). I'd say it is probably better to spend the few Pounds extra and buy that instead.

Nothing Noteworthy or Interesting about this other than its name

I opened this with some excitement after arriving today, I was immediately underwelmed by its complexity & At 40% vol, this is well underpowered, nothing lasting other than an oak burn, just boring and definitely not worth the asking price of £32.95 + £5 p&p

Worth a try.

Nothing overly special going on with this one. This whisky would probably be best served as an aperitif. It's just as the tasting notes say. I'm finding all those flavours, only with a lasting oak finish. It reminds me a bit of the Glenfarclas 10. Good value for money though.

Well worth the money.

Tasting notes were absolutely bang on. Loved the sherry finish, and tempted to have just one more dram (and at the price MoM are selling it at, it wouldn't have put a hole in the bank!). If you can get past the strange name, it's well worth a try.

Decent dram for the price

I like it. It’s decent dram for everyday drinking. I wish they would give it a higher ABV like 46% which would give it a bigger flavour and longer finish. I guessing it’s Either a Tamdhu or a Glenfarclas.

Full of flavour. A special 8 year old

For an 8 year old malt, this is by far the best I have tasted. There is a glorious fullness in the after taste, and it is smooth and far too
Moreish. First bottle gone new one on order.

Not for me

Smooth and leathery - quite thick on the palette.
Lacks any real depth or punch.
