    Clearly the older brother of the 15er. But more sherry dominating and a little more on tap. The quality is considerable. PLV clearly perfect.

      As a special one has immediately the red wine notes and the well-known matchmaking effect. I like that. Then the whole Christmas market with good espresso in the air. Gentle woody spice notes in the background.

      If now the wood breaks through then rather in the bitter direction. Too bad. But quickly comes the creamy sherry effect. Now orange caramel in plum jam. He is full-bodied and deliciously oily. But .... something bothers me on the bitter side. Still great palate!

      Rather long and with cough syrup like mouthfeel, he slowly leaves the stage. He stays wonderfully sweet. In the background still a woody menthol taste. Has something.

    • Nose
      Sherry casks, for sure, you notice this immediatly, the nose is invaded by spices and fruits, like grapes and plums. Despite a low degree of alcohol (well, everything is relative), you take it right in the nose, some notes of sulfur. Nice old rum notes. More pleasant after some aeration.
    • Taste
      Plums and dates, all this wrapped in caramel. This whisky is strong, it also brings some drought. Old rum notes as with the nose. The tastes are pretty sliced, it’s nice but it lacks a bit of complexity and wealth.
    • Finish
      A medium length finish, some dryness, chocolate and spices.

    Note: 85/100
    • Nose
      Les fûts de sherry font immédiatement leur office, le nez est envahi d'épices et de fruits, comme les raisins et les prunes. Malgré un degré d'alcool peu élevé (enfin, tout est relatif), celui-ci prend un peu au nez, surtout qu'il est accompagné de quelques notes de soufre. Un côté vieux rhum ressort également. Plus agréable après aération.
    • Taste
      Des prunes et des dates, le tout enrobé de caramel. Ce whisky est fort en bouche, il y amène également une certaine sécheresse. On retrouve ce côté vieux rhum. Les goûts sont assez tranchés, c'est agréable mais ca manque un poil de complexité et de richesse.
    • Finish
      Une finale de longueur moyenne, un peu sèche et sur le chocolat et les épices.
