    • Nose
      Powerful. Pulp paper. Floral. It's nagging ...
    • Taste
      Pretty evanescent. It has a certain depth. The association between an old malt and a young grain has no real interest here.
    • Finish
      Sparkling spices.

      Nose & Mouth 2/5
      Final 3/5

      Whiskey n ° 1990

    Please do not expect a normal single malt from the sherry keg here! Presumably, valuations in the 70's range were made under false assumptions, but you have to take that whiskey for what it is:
    75% of an 8-year-old Grain whiskey was married to 25% of an 18-year-old Bushm ... (you know, of course!) The whole thing was then finished in sherry casks.
    Unusual and something completely different! I had total coffee-chocolate in my nose ... He was the first in a tasting and as an opener just right. Could imagine, that arrives very well with women.

    Funny - I'm not a fan of rum finishes, there are rum-hyes, but this sherry hyde tastes about as I imagine a reasonably good rum finish. I'm happy to try, for a whole bottle he would be too sweet for me personally, but I think 37 € is appropriate.
    • Nose
      ostensibly brown cane sugar and baked pastry, a touch of speculoos; when deep sniffing tropical fruit notes (I can not exactly identify, because I have too much "suck") and something like Cachaça // cheaper white rum
    • Taste
      sweet - cane sugar, honey, a light touch of brandy and cheap, sweetened rum, well carved speculoos, gingerbread spice
    • Finish
      medium long, creamy-sweet, milk chocolate, honey, brandy bean

    Well, that was unexpected. An Irish-Canadian whisk(e)y! 
    • Nose
      Saccarine, tropical notes, bubblegum, almost rum-like (rum with additives). Canadian too?
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet arrival. Vanilla, maple, honey, spice. Very canadian in profile. 
    • Finish
      Same as the palate. Flavours fade to maple and honey, with a medium long finish buoyed by a light spice.
