- A good malt, but no revelation. I am a little irritated that on the one hand I perceive distinct port flavors, on the other hand I also find a certain appeal of sherry. I only have one sample and no further information about the cask storage. Can it be that both port and sherry casks have found their way ...?
Very vinous and surprisingly slightly pungent alcohol. Oak, vanilla, herbs. In addition a certain freshness and in the background exotic fruits. If anything, just a very subtle smoke. With a few drops of water even clearer Portweinnoten. Old oak wood and a little furniture polish.
Undiluted a very strong, impetuous and almost a little burning start. And that, although the drop was able to breathe for over 20 minutes. With a few drops of water much more pleasant. Raisins, almonds, astringent grapes, oak and clearer peat than in the nose. Superficially spicy and subliminal with a certain fruity sweetness.
Medium length finish, dominated by bitter oak. Almost a little furry on the tongue.
- Notes from internet.
Definitely wine treated. Hints of port wine with sourish notes that remind me of cellars and of raspberry vinegar. Lots of red berries, strawberry marmalade, grapes, hints of cherry liqueur. A bit of musty oak as well. Enticing, but very, very winey.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Less fruity sweet than I expected although there is still berry juice to be found. Fresh, sour notes again, then some grapefruit, heavy wine and wood. Cooked strawberries.
Warm, quite long and winey.
