Glen Els The Journey WID: 128008
Abv. 43%, NCF, Sherry, Madeira, Port, Malaga, and many more.
Nose: thick fruitiness and spiciness with a decent portion of sweetness without being sticky, blindly I would have typed in a lot of sherry influence, ripe peaches, or rather peach peels, milk chocolate, nectarines, very barrely
Taste: Here comes the sweetness, almost like from a Sauternes barrel, dark candied fruit and Turkish honey, yellow plums, a very fine and weak spiciness, very complacent, but also barrel-weighted and not balanced enough, which helps on the one hand young whisky complicating matters unfortunately the complexity
Departure: coffee chocolates, pancakes with maple syrup, a little metallic youth, here you can tell him his age, also the length of the finish is quite limited, but there is indeed the next sip
Conclusion: I like it as much as possible and compared to other German whiskys, the colleague can be seen here. Pluses for the honest presentation and the just too dangerous drinking. Unfortunately, the comrade from the barrels a bit overloaded and therefore I can not find anything Brenn Brennaracter, but this could also be due to my few Glen Els I have tried. Complexity is not his strength either. I still like him.
