young, sharp in taste, smoke saves from destructive assessment ... sad ...
- The nose was great, the rest unfortunately only ok and interchangeable, which prevented a better rating.
sweet smoke, medium smoke level, so not only implied, but not too dominant, cherry, chocolate, a very clear slightly sweetish red fruit note, a little nut in the chocolate, if smelled in the right place in the glass clearly smoked bacon, some mint , Caramel, the different flavors patter just really on me and the drinking strength allows me to smell a bit longer without one directly the alcohol kills the olfactory nerves, the nose is actually fun
first feeling is a bit watery, then taste more intense, again sweet smoke in the foreground, some cinnamon, a bit of chocolate, the fruit is there, but not clear to assign here, in the mouth one-dimensional than in the nose, the alcohol strength fits here, watered down only one little the mouthfeel
Smoke is dominant here, slightly sweet, ok, but not very exciting in the end, not too long
- Nose: complex. Milk chocolate, vanilla, canned pears, ashy peat, some sour notes in the beginning which disappear with a little time. Cinnamon? Yes, it's shy and hiding a bit. And develops into red apples. Now this is lovely!
Flavour: smokey! Dry, ashy peat. And somewhat stingy at first, mellowing a bit after the first sip. Raisins, milk chocolate, vanilla, tannins from oak and red wine. Red apples. A lot going on here. Sure it's only 6 yo?
Finish: medium, mellow, lingering. Dominated by the red wine bitterness and dry ash.
I really liked this one, it's complex, interesting and challenging. A great experience and a masterfull blending of the three different malts and casks.
