Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Cherry and strawberry jam.  Orange marmalade.  A hint of mint and pepper.  Definitely chocolate and a really nice sweetness.  Quite spicy, but I think a tad less heavy-handed on the spices than for instance the Aberlour A’bunadh (94)

Taste

Juicy at first, but slightly tannic and quick drying. Dark dried fruits (raisin, orange, plum, fig) and again very sweet.  Hints of tobacco and damp woods.  Now the spices are nipping at the tongue. Lovely! (93) 

Finish

Long and perfect, just the way I like it. (92)

Angelos Tasting note

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Oranges, almost zest, some grapefruit, caramel, milk chocolate (Crepes with nutella and grated coconut)

Taste

Ripe oranges, caramel, grapefruit, mild tannins from the oak (european I believe), raisins, strawberries, some cranberries, sweet chocolate

Finish

Medium with some lemon oil, cranberries again, mild tannins

Comments

I believe the whisky for Batch1 is a bit older than those which have been used for Batch 2 + 3. It is just an opinion. It comes more ripe than the other ones! Anyway... Batch 2 remains my favourite one!

Color
Auburn
Nose

Ostrá, sametová, rozinky, čokoláda, ostře kořenitá, skořicová. S vodou zůstává bez výraznější změny aroma. (87 b)

Taste

Bez vody velmi ostrá, suchá, sametově čokoládová. Voda jí pomáhá, pěkně se rozvine, zesládne, objeví se sherry a rozinky. Dozvuk je dlouhý, čokoládový. (89 b)

Finish
Comments

I když má víc alkoholu, než Batch 2, je ostřejší, i s vodou je jak břitva (což mi nevadí, naopak se mi to líbí), ale hutnost a výraznost batch 2 u mě boduje ještě víc. Na body je to u mě 90:88 pro Batch 2. Obě jsou však výborné.

Taste

douce, sucrée. Du bois, des fruits secs, du cacao amer. 

L'ensemble est assez sec et un peu jeune. Alcool bien intégré.
Finish

Longue, bois, vanille, cacao. 

Comments

L'ensemble m'a paru assez jeune et un peu sec. 

Pour les amateurs de ce type de sherry.
