This one is a chameleon, offers a little bit of everything, even a hint of tropical fruits, which you can only find in colleagues who have matured for 21 years and longer. Highly recommended!
A mix of fresh blackberries and blueberries on the one hand and dried plums on the other, overripe grapes and raisins. A wonderful spice note that at first cannot be broken apart. Initially furniture polish or an adhesive note that may be reminiscent of bourbon. But that goes away. Tobacco, leather, almonds, dark chocolate, milk coffee. Now clove powder, bay leaves, nutmeg. Hazelnut crumbs.
Creamy and viscous, with sweet blackberry jam, wild berries, black cherries, plums. Fruit-stressed - and you can already guess the tropical fruits as they will appear on the 21yo! This was not the case with previous editions of the 15yo. Mild spice - and slowly a little melon actually creeps forward. Dry wood, malt, sugar beet syrup, caramel.
Medium to long, chocolatey, (almost fresh) fruity. Coffee beans and caramel pudding, cinnamon & coriander, marzipan.
