Tasting notes by BenRiach; 
Nose; 
Toasted nuts and honey slip into
a delicious apple sponge background.
Colour;
Rich antique gold.
Taste; 
Lively crisp pineapple explodes and then
softens to soft creamy toffee. The sweetness
stays throughout as orchard fruits appear
along with waves of spicy toasted oak.

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Säuerliche Fruchtigkeit überreifer gelber Früchte (Trauben, Stachelbeeren), was sicherlich von den Bourbon Casks herrührt, in dem der Malt anfänglich reifen durfte. Angezündetes Streichholz, Pfeifentabak. Umhüllt wird das Ganze von PX-Aromen, schwerer Sherry mit dunklen Aromen, zestiger Orange und Schokolade. Das Finishing hat gut gewirkt und beides ist gut ausbalanciert.

Taste

Voluminöse Sherrysüße, sehr schwer, scharf und mundfüllend, full-bodied. Dunkles Obst, zestige Orange, Schokolade, Dörrobst und warme Gewürze. Sehr lecker.

Finish

lang, süß und wärmend, umhüllt von schwerem Sherry. Ledrig, pfeffrig.

Comments

Voluminös, full-bodied und gewaltig. Wer Sherry-Malts mag, kommt auf seine vollen Kosten. 89 Punkte

Commentaire LMDW :

Vieilli 15 ans dans un fût unique (le numéro 7633) de xérès Pedro Ximenez, ce single malt distillé trois fois est extrêmement doux et généreux. Marqué au nez par des notes de noix, de miel et de gâteau aux pommes, la bouche s'exprime à travers des vagues successives d'ananas, de toffee et de chêne toasté.
