    This Speyside region is characterized by a rather acidic fruit aroma and usually shows its wooden and spicy side. The fruitiness of the nose is represented in the taste and aftertaste almost only by sour cherries, a fresh minty note is the whole time refreshing in the background. A very delicious malt, although I miss a bit of the "boobs" and the "aha effect". Otherwise, I find the Speyside region very successful and almost "easy-drinking" direction, which should not be a criticism for me. Fits and tastes!

    • Nose
      Caramel and amber shine in the Premium Snifter, on the glass wall sticks a variety of oily drops. Roasted hazelnuts and dried berries and grapes stand out powerfully from the glass, dark orange aroma combines with apricots and sour cherries, even now my salivation is stimulated. Sweet caramel and a hint of vanilla come up in the background is a pinch of fresh mint and lemon balm. Echoes of milk chocolate and spicy wood tones penetrate through the beautifully integrated alcohol which shows up from its powerful side now and then. Slightly fermented fruit flavors show up, as well as a handful of meadow herbs. The nose is fresher, more and more show sour cherries, blackberries and currants.
    • Taste
      Dark berries and a few splashes of sour cherry juice exude an unusually fruity and sourish aroma at the first sip, while spicy wood tones end in resin and pine needles. Subtle heat again stimulates the salivation, hazelnuts and slightly earthy aroma combine to form a bitter mixture. Appearances of almond peculiar and gingerbread dissolve from the dark and partly bitter aroma, a cozy warmth flows through the palate. Do I taste lovage there? The aromas are closely interwoven, dominate it at the moment rather dark and tart fruits in combination with spicy wood tones and earthy nuances. With sour cherries and date, the taste slowly transpires into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      The tart fruit flames flare up again, tart and creamy wood tones stick to the palate, a subtle sharpness tickles on the tongue. Hazelnuts stick between the tongue and the palate, a few drops of sour cherry juice drip again into the saliva floating in the lower jaw, tart wood tones mix with dried orange slices and raisins. With a dash of peppermint the aftertaste sounds slow and leaves sour cherries and red berries on the palate.

    Nice malt that does not just offer sherry. I like the. For people who are on extremely fruity and sweet malts, that's probably nothing. You also have to like more bitter notes.
    • Nose
      Not violently dark and sweet, but rather a mixture of fruit, spice and freshness. In terms of fruit I have something in the direction of strawberry jam and Jostabeere. Again and again, a freshness that reminds me of lemon balm. Some orange and lemon. Of course, the wood can not completely hide after 25 years and brings spice into play. Dusty wood. Forest floor. Dark chocolate with nuts and raisins. A bit removed balsamic.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the freshness is much less present. Now it is more of an interplay between fruit and spice. Overall sweeter so still in the nose. Grape juice. Cooked cherries with kirsch. Chocolate cake. Then the oak comes and makes the whole thing spicier and a lot drier. Some pepper. Tonic Water with blueberries. Licorice.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate with pieces of cherries. Black tea. Cinchona bark.

    He shines and sprays his shine in the glass. Sweet-sour flavors are his trademark which flatters in the nose tangy and nutty and on the palate are complemented by woody bitterness. The discrepancy between nose and palate is in my opinion too big. But the nose is much too inviting and often one looks for the previously perceived flavors on the palate. Unfortunately, the aromas in the mouth are overshadowed by a woody bitterness - 15.02.2019
    • Nose
      Beautiful fruity-sweet sherry nose with caramel and roasted aromas, amarena cherry, blackberry, currant, bourbon vanilla, fresh herbs, lemongrass, limescale, baked apple, cinnamon
      No trace of alcohol, as if you had poured yourself a syrup
    • Taste
      Very dry and fruity, light burning in the mouth, oily, here is the alcohol to tame but fast, the wood flavors poke and confuse the flavor play, it is very spicy and woody, some pastry, biscuits, junk, the sour fruit comes revived with precocious apricots and sour cherries and turns into long-lasting bitterness
    • Finish
      Lang

    Note from Pit (slowdrink.de)
    This is like a gingerbread with a chocolate-chili coating, very appropriate for the season. The Oloroso smell and hints of a dry n‘ spicy classic ooze out of my tasting tulip. I am getting sherry, old wood, orange zest, soaked gingerbread, dusty warehouse, green tea and herbs, dark chocolate, Maraschino cherry gelee, dates, apricot, humidor, and: Chili! Altogether rather an old style dram … and on the palate? Less dry than expected! Great stuff with an exciting back n‘ forth between sweetness (jammy) and spiciness, yet in very good balance. Cough syrup-complexity ???? It finishes lengthy and full of finesse, echoes of cherries, chocolate, dates and sloeberries linger. A real recommendation!

    Score: 90
