    Great nose. Full of sherry, very soft / creamy. Spicy in the mouth, light peppery with a nice leather component. Long finish. This is a sherry bomb for 12 years.

      The Caledonia is according to label "natural color". All respect I can only say! Because he bangs a rich amber in the glass, that for a 12y truly surprised. Beautifully oily, the malt hugs the glass rim.
      Great soft Sherrynoten popping one here in the nose. You do not notice the 46% alcohol at all. Light associations with a cognac come into my nasal memory. Behind the sherry taste, I feel very leixht something like plum (Plum) true. After the first sip, the nose changes from mus to vanilla.
      One, two drops of water bring a previously unfenced fruitiness to the day.

      First sip is spicy with a light liveliness, almost a little peppery. Little sweetie. Sherry is dominant there - leathery, full. At the second sip, the start also changes a little at the beginning to a slight sweetness, which quickly turns back into this spicy note. Pfeffrigkeit remains. With water comes more sweetness and it is creamier / doughy (?) In the mouth.

      The peppery note or slightly spicy ginger is clear. Then dark chocolate comes, it then changes to a slightly nutty bitterness, which ends in a subtle oak taste, which then longer sticks behind. With water the finish remains very similar.
