- The whisky is really super super soft. Even though it is 54.6% alcohol and aged 17 years. It does not sting your throat at all and has a delicious sherry taste.
In addition to the sherry taste, you also taste vanilla, spices, a bit of a chocolate-like taste. And he has a delicious long warm aftertaste.
- Very strong, powerful whisky, with a lot fruity and sweet notes. Very attractive and enjoyable dram.
Fruity, raisins, apples, even some hint of roasted meat or fondue. Spicy as well. And some sweetness of warm waffles or 'oliebollen' with powder sugar.
Initially it comes in very smooth, then some pepper comes through and makes it all very strong and powerful. Fruity, some red fruits, some leather, chocolate. And a sour note underneath, some red wine thing.
Still pretty strong, red fruits, raisins, coffee, cappuccino. Pretty long finish, with still a lot of sweet and fruity notes.
- I think one of the tastiest whiskys I have ever had.
I had a sample of this but oh, how good he is!
- It's a great example of integrating all flavors to round whole. Nice whisky, severely for advanced!
