    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.

    In my opinion a fairly wild whisky, the nose very round and balanced, then strong on the tongue and very powerful on the finish. Balanced would be better
    • Nose
      Sweet and sweet, slightly sherry, red fruits, vanilla and caramel in the background
    • Taste
      fruity, spicy, sherry, light tingles on the tongue
    • Finish
      long, powerful finish, half-dry

    This proves to be a nice drinkable 18 year old. It is easy to come by here in the states and has wonderful flavor of sherry and dried fruits. I love the price and presentation is also very professional looking. This will give some of the more widely noticeable brands a run for there competition.
