- Tasted at Story Tellers: Tasting Whisky in January 2018
- Very interesting. I do not like that corky touch that much. I think it's even funny. Can you drink? But you do not necessarily have to.
Yellow apples that already have some foul spots. Forest honey. White grapes. Pear juice. A little sprite. Vanilla. Wet tree trunk covered with moss. Maybe some bay leaf. Overall, the nose is relatively mild.
Pretty sweet in the mouth at first. Glucose. Caramel. Then a tingle and a little acid. Then it gets milder. The comparison of Archer with the corky white wine I find very apt. Maybe even a kind of smoke I mean to hear. The oak takes over now.
Wet, musty woody notes paired with hints of vanilla and citrus fruit.
- The nose was still inviting, but taste and finish did not go. This musty wood note, this Korkschmecker: clear false note.
Clear and pure with a mineral note, honey, vanilla and green apples. Campbeltown is very easy to spot. From the background comes a slightly musty wood note, like old, with mold "decorated" wood planks. Nevertheless, the nose remains essentially fresh. Salt is still mixed.
On the tongue is the musty, moldy, moldy wood but then clearly (he) make out. Looks a bit like corky white wine. The green apples from the nose here on the tongue now in conjunction with Williams pears. In addition fresh grass cuttings, some leeks. Becomes increasingly bitter, almost bitter. The wood note is very dominant and now clearly represents a false note for me.
Medium to short, dry, bitter to bitter, musty wood, barely sweet.
- Honey, vanilla, red apples, pear, nuts, cinnamon, salty, raisins, prunes and pepper
