Mahogany
Nose

Wow! Herrlich süß und fruchtig. Intensive aber zugleich sehr milde Nase. Klebrige Datteln. Dazu dunkle Holz- und Ledernoten. Kakao. Extrem abwechslungsreich und spannend.

Taste

Cremig weich. Aber auch überraschend herb. Viel würzige Eiche und säuerliches Leder. Dann ganz viel dunkle Schokolade. Ein paar kräftige Pflaumen. Man schmeckt meiner Meinung nach das hohe Alter und die spannende Komposition der Fässer.

Finish

Der Abgang bleibt aufgrund des eher geringen Alkoholgehalts nicht ganz so lang. Aber er ist aromatisch und lecker mit Kakao und Eiche.

Comments

Ein hochspannender Whisky, der sehr viel zu entdecken bietet.

[April, 2000]  I had another dram during a "Taste the difference" tasting at Rolandsbogen. 

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 80 points.  My notes state a nose with a strong apple aroma.

There is no accounting for taste...

[October, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg. 

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 82,5.  Unfortunately no additional notes were taken.

There is no accounting for taste...

Andytka3 gave this whisky 83 points

Nose:- Gentle caramel and orange pulps first, layered with whiff of dark fruits in the middle, some airy and light barley husks, nutty. Breath deep for the fresh plums and bourbon characters.

Palate:- Delicate mouthfeel, lightly spiced with cinnamon sweet flowing on the palate, matured and rounded.

Finish:- Dry and deep, bitter chocolate and a touch of spicy spice. Hint of warm, short-medium length.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
