    • Nose
      Color: rose gold

      Nose: glue, poppy, slightly rotty wood note, wax, vanilla, herbs, locksmith's workshop, musty hay bales
    • Taste
      much sweeter sherry, the 56.3% do a great job here. Salty cotton candy with sherry
      Just don't put any water in it, then it smells stupid and tastes stupid too.
      But pure, a really good sherry whisky from Speyburn, and when you burp it it gets really good on the nose
      Cherries ..... mmmh .... light smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium length

  4. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Shining gold with a reddish stroke

      First of all, cold steel greets me today. Then again this adhesive note and the musty wood. Followed by sour, unripe plums and bitter almonds. Slightly mushy pear and apple vinegar note. The waxy I find today again. However, more subtle than the first time. The moldy hay bale is also here again. In addition a bit damp leaves. In the background I still find something like sourdough.
      With some time in the glass, the steel moves clearly backwards and the waxy pushes forward nicely. He also does not smell so moldy anymore. Now rather set. In addition, something in the direction of apricot jelly and a little coconut.
    • Taste
      Clear, bright start. Artificial sweetness. Salty cotton candy fits here really nice. I also find this waxy, dull taste. Some caramel, yeast dough and again the plum. Reminds me full of plum cake with yeast dough and this delicious, sugared crumble on top. There is still a very special taste inside. Has something of leaf salad.
    • Finish
      Medium. Somewhat young and metallic. Then again sweet with honey. Ends creamy and becomes drier. In the end, roast aromas really come through again.

  5. zaphod155 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      At first, ripe fruits. Then caramel and chocolate, then fruits again. This time clear cherries and currants.The alcohol comes clearly as minty freshness over. Overall, the flavors but rather stay in the dark corner.
    • Taste
      Strong start. Caramel sweet with chili sharpness. The fruits are subordinated to the caramel. There are slight toasty flavors noticeable. The spice is stronger, dark chocolate to coffee. It gets creamier with a little water.
    • Finish
      Long. The seasoning wins. It retains caramel and, only slowly, sharpness.
