    a pity, two years longer and the vll could taste and finish have what the inimitable and unique nose hoped. Nevertheless, a wonderful benriach single cask from a virgin oak barrel 91/100 borrr is warm to me, slainte! one is still working
    • Nose
      reminds of Maoam and Hubba buba! extreme sweetness with honey, vanilla and strawberry. light citrus notes reminiscent of blood orange. Add to that a subtle herbal and sticky note followed by candied oak. has the alcohol? quite a lot, however, you will not notice in any way. okay today had a few drams ... still madness!
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet and voluminous. again maoam and flowery, bright fruits which? no idea the part is mega complex. Coconut flakes are elegant in their herbs, spices and candied wood flavors. Now you can notice the 58.9% of the neat push forward but no sharpness, at most a slight tingle in the cheeks arise
    • Finish
      unfortunately "only" medium long but very strong and warm. with a lot of vanilla and honey. again coconut. the fruit notes fade here a bit. but it remains very sweet. In addition, dry herbs and wood flavors. after the second here again slightly floral and of course maoam: D
