Character: A light, unspectacular and slightly boring standard. Malt, cereals, honey and vanilla. Somehow as a short mixture, but without lasting impression. Rating: Can you have tried, but you do not necessarily. The Aberfeldy 12 "runs" really well, but the taste is just not enough for me. All those looking for a non- peaty, non- fruity, non- oak, non- marly, non- maritime malt that combines malt, vanilla, and gnawed camp apples in a drinkable way are all right. But I do not need it again in the glass: 75 points .
Basic flavors: cereals, malt, honey, vanilla, alcohol, herbs Description: Grain, malt and honey initially dominate so strongly that almost nothing is perceived otherwise. In any case, there are significantly fewer fruit flavors than hoped and expected. The alcohol is initially a bit pungent. Over time, however, the drop develops a bit. A slightly sweetish vanilla joins the grain-honey mix and finally I can grab the somehow existing fruit note. I suddenly remember my childhood: my grandparents used to store old apple varieties over the winter. The aroma of long-stored, lightly flavored old apples really resonates here. Natural and with the tendency cider. Incidentally, the initial feeling of pungent alcohol changes over time into a kind of kräutrige freshness. Heather - with the proviso that next time in the north I have to smell it again to refresh my memory.
Basic flavors: malt, cereals, sweetness, vanilla, spice Description: Surprisingly mild and supple, the drop hits the tip of the tongue. And then, first of all, nothing [...] happens? Absolutely remarkable: the sip is passé without having left serious taste marks. Error in the matrix? Hard to believe. I can't be that hard-damaged yet. Ergo second attempt, that is, second sip. Combined with a deliberately long hold in the mouth. The taste is still surprisingly low. But after all, something happens at all: malt, cereals, a mini touch of vanilla and a slightly creamy sweetness clash briefly and even provide for the time of a blink of an eye even a certain spiciness in the mouth. Everything is creamy and far away from unpleasant. But all very simple, unspectacular and extremely volatile. I can hardly believe the drop in taste, as fast as it is gone again.
Basic flavors: malt, cereals, sweetness, vanilla Description: The finish is rather short. At best, medium. Malt, cereals, a slightly sweet undertone and a subtle lingering vanilla. That's it then.
