      Nutty milk chocolate, fresh plums and freeze-dried apple slices. The plums started condensing and developed into Jiayingzi preserved dried plums which were slightly salted and sweet. There were also Kyoho grapes and honey-dried Chinese bayberries. After a while in the glass, cappuccino with sugary foam, some carabao mangos and sweetcorn juice. Interestingly there's Fanta from the emptied glass.

      Red fruits and earth to start, raspberries, strawberry jam. Mandarin orange peel, followed by grapes, raspberries, chocolate bar and a touch of fruit stems.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Honey black tea, vanilla and dried prunes with black peppers arising. Strawberry jam, nuts, cinnamon and tannins. It got woody and showed signs of black coffee at the end, without bitterness luckily.

    This batch of the Parliament also delivers what it should. The combination of the leathery heaviness of the Oloroso casks with the mouth-flattering sweetness of the PX, accompanied by pleasant (dry) fruit aromas and a subtle cask spiciness. No bitterness and bottled at 48% with ideal drinking strength for me. Stable and long finish. I can't think of many "standards" that deliver like the Parliament, otherwise only exceptional single casks can be found at this level. No wonder that 200 euros are being asked for the Parliament today. If today's batches deliver like this variant...measured against price levels in March 2022, then it's worth it. How good that my bottle was still available for €85.
    If you want to complain, you can imagine a minimal sulfur note (yes, I'm afraid it's actually there), but this is not disturbing for me and only blends in slightly in the background with the concert of aromas.

    This one just got the WWA, and when someone opened it to share, two were needed. It can be regarded as a very impressive wine when I just drink whisky.
    When I first started, I used to go to the bar for two drinks on the weekends. Without much, glendronach 18 was happy to drink. During that time, because I was often alone, I especially liked to sit there, a bottle of wine to recognize the wine on the wall, thinking about when I can drink it again. But when did you start to go to the bar slowly and no longer order the glendronach's house? After so long to pick up this wine again, when I first started to drink, I felt so sour and bitter, and the wine The body is like that, probably a bit like the disillusionment of goodbye first love.
