    Overall very tasty. It should have been bottled at 46-47% abv. For a 15 year old whisky, the price is relatively low and it can compete with single-malt scotch whiskies of the same age and in a similar price range, e.g. Dalwhinnie, Glenlivet, Cardhu etc. It draws attention by fellow whisky enthusiasts, not only due to its origin (Spain, specifically Segovia at an altitude of around 1000 meters, with high temperature differentials between summer and winter), but also because the bottle has an offset print, which perfectly aligns around the bottle. I will definitely buy it again.

      Vanilla, lemon and gras come first, followed by apple, strawberry and candied almonds, but only a little oakiness. This whisky needs to breath a little to deliver its aromas. It reminds me of apple crumb cake.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Spicy, sweet, fruity and nutty, like a dessert. Again only a little oakiness.
    • Finish

      Relatively short, the oakiness is more noticeable but not bitter. Here, the low alcohol content is really noticeable. The vanilla remains, but it is not as overpowering as most american whiskies.

    A whisky that can compete with Scottish single malt but has an individual character. A very cool bottle and a nice and well balanced whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      A fine and pleasant nose. There is malt, almonds, nuts and a little grass.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Dry and creamy, it shows the oak. It lacks a little strength, they are only 40%.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long, oak. A little bitter, you can see the 15 years.

    This special botteling of DYC whisky can actually compete with the finer scottish and irish stuff. The regular 8 year old is just drinkable neat. Had a 10-year old special botteling once which kind of impressed me. Bought this one a year ago and I wish this age was regularly bottled.
    Cooked fruit, shoe polish and a bit of marzipan on the nose. The taste neatly balanced, it gives a nice creamy pot-still like entry, followed by a very fruity centre, which together with the oaky vanilla tones reminds me of a peach-and-cream dessert. It ends with a pleasant earthiness that rests on the centre of the tongue for a minute or two. Lovely, wish it would be bottled at a higher abv though!
    More known for their blends (not to drink pure), DYC actually can make really nice single malt.
