    A beautiful winter malt - fruity, spicy, warming, intense, great class!
    • Nose
      Oranges, oranges, oranges, ginger, cinnamon, beautiful light wood, a splash of lemon, mint, licorice, soft and round, sunlit apricots, tangerines, nutmeg, orange blossom and jasmine, a hint of thyme and ripe date, and standing in the back corner a leather suitcase - very nice nose
    • Taste
      sweet, oily, creamy, spicy, intense, slightly tingling - again many oranges, almost like thick juice, with ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, in the background again thyme and freshly ground espresso, tangerine skin, green tea with jasmine, black bread with thick apricot jam , Walnuts, also the green peel skin, then clove pepper - all thick and oily and wonderful in the mouth
    • Finish
      the wood spices roll comfortably down the throat, orange and jasmine fade away, ginger, nutmeg and clove pepper remain the longest - and at the very end the mint-licorice combo reappears ...

    BLIND TASTING

    N: mega nose! Exotic fruit, pina colada with thick coconut and pineapple. Vanilla, oriental spice bazaar. Baked apple, nut mixture. Wet in the forest. Did I already mention mega? Since I can smell it eeeewig
    M: Spicy sweetness, also oriental here. Shortbread. Leather. Wood. musty. Walnut, pastries and figs.
    A: Long, light pepperiness sticks to cheeks and tongue. Ordinary oak cargo slowly dries mouth and throat.

    Conclusion: Great, reminds me of the 1973 Speysider. Fino sherry barrel? Family Cask Glenfarclas? Great whisky, great balance. Muy bonito

    The price is probably. a little ambitious - the Malt makes but no weaknesses - I like the power and the yellow fruitiness and especially that he is not quite perfectly rounded - he has just therefore still really character.
    • Nose
      Quite reserved mild sweetness of dates and figs, nothing stands out. Slightly warmed orange peel, orange juice and laurel leaves to come - I immediately think of vacation in Croatia where the dealer fresh fig cakes (consists only of dried figs, almonds, cinnamon, orange juice) with orange haggle and keep the laurel leaves the pests. Warm after the first sip I think of orange mash with ginger and very spicy honey, overripe mango, yellow kiwi when they are very ripe and the sweetness gets the upper hand over the fruit acid, chalk, wax, fresh light wood, birch sap, green branches - the Fruit basket has the upper hand easily - it is a nice fresh fruity acidity, which is drowned in the glass but a mixture of fruit and honey sweetness with a herbaceous spice mixture. Always there is this fresh light oak, the volume and spices brings - never moves to the fore and never bitter, earthy or like musty cellar acts. With more time, a bell of waxy sherry shades forms far above the glass, where one can guess the age of the malts - because the fruit basket is otherwise not much price.
    • Taste
      Orange, dry fig, mint, ginger, pepper - but no alcohol - a beautiful round fruit cocktail - creamy oak tones, a little wax on the tongue, with the second sip more spices, more bright fresh oak in more facets - warming and strong he lies on the palate - quite intense and a little wild but not alcoholic hot.
    • Finish
      complex oak tones, a touch of resin, spice, heat, pepper, not dry - in the end, especially the oak spices remain more than average on the tongue

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice malt. The sherry is palpable, but not at all pushy or dominant. A harmonious whisky with tension.
    • Nose
      Orange peel and pulp. Apricot jam. Oatmeal cookies with cranberries. Macadamia nuts. A certain herbal note. After a while there are also tart / spicy notes. Tobacco and roasted nuts
    • Taste
      Forest honey. Chocolate spread with oranges. Rose hip. A noticeable sharpness arises. Spicy oak notes. Chocolate. Roasted notes.
      Overall spicy and less "freshness" than in the nose.
    • Finish
      The oak becomes drier. Orange peel. Cocoa. Leather.

    Yes, this malt can do something! The nose is sweet and characterized by tropical fruits, in the taste dominate rather the tart and spicy flavors. The taste and aftertaste outweigh a pleasant basic acuity which gives this malt power and power. A very varied and multi-layered malt, I like it very much!

    • Nose
      The malt shines clear and pure in rich amber in the glass. From the streaks sticking to the glass wall, a multitude of small and oily drops dissolve and find their way back into the glass. Lightly dried raisins mix with velvety apricots, subtle roasted aromas and a hint of caramelized sugar exude a sweet note. Tropical fruits rise, mango and kiwi play together, orange marmalade and a hint of citrus fruit show up. Milk chocolate and hazelnuts make the sweet fruit flavors appear a little tart, spicy wood and herbs give the nose a spicy base note. Thyme and an old leather note spread their spicy and tart flavor. Banana flashes for a short time and are quickly whitewashed by toasted aromas and dark forest honey. The leather aroma becomes more intense and creamier, the herbs and tropical fruits immediately revert, creamy toasted aromas and dried raisins or dates are in the foreground.
    • Taste
      Spicy and tart, the malt flows over the tongue, followed by slightly grassy hints. Initially wooden sharpness slides from the palate over the tongue and ends with a light burning pinch of pepper on the tip of the tongue. Chubby warmth is distributed throughout the mouth, tart wood tones and grapefruit aroma rest on the tongue. Walnut flavor and a hint of wet foliage follow the tart and creamy wood tones. Dark oranges are doused with hot espresso, spicy wood tones rise and end in an intensive spice mixture. Fresh mint and a hint of eucalyptus mingle with creamy hazelnuts and dry wood. Here and there are dark and dried fruit flavors, otherwise dominate the spicy notes of wood until the recurring sharpness sticking slightly burning on the lip and tongue. Chubby warm and with the intense and spicy pepper note, the taste goes into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Pepper and an oriental spice mixture still heat the tongue, slowly thyme brings out a grassy note to us. Tender notes of wood and wet leaves end in a wet leather note, while dark forest honey mixes with oranges, apricots and kiwi. For a long time, the intense and powerful aromas in the mouth linger and leave a cozy warmth on the tip of the tongue.

    Very fine, complex and varied malt. The nose is still the most fun. Water is not necessary for me here, but depending on the dilution you can tease out individual flavors more. Very exciting!
    The finish is a little weaker for me, but it is painful with all the highlights in the nose and palate.

      The first impression fits, fruity sweet, full aroma of the yellow fruits. Orange zest, apricots, pears, grapes, exotic fruits like kiwi and mango mix in, mixed chocolate with fresh sawdust as a great contrast, in the background there are spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme and cloves, another great contrast, some vanilla and a hint of caramelized almonds, everything looks very harmonious and round, a very good, complex nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      full, creamy and oily appearance, honey sweetness emerges directly, there is a not too dominant tingling spice, more ginger-spicy, oranges, mandarins and apricots again, here too the spices such as ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg come beautifully as a contrast to the fruit by. Coffee and nuts appear in the background which make the malt appear slightly bitter. It sounds nice and chocolatey.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish, slightly tingling, spicy, the nuts and coffee provide a slight bitterness before it becomes fruity and sweet again. at the end there is a refreshing menthol / mint note.
