  1. SpeyburnClanGermany did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A whisky that can be worked on over several evenings. He does not voluntarily reveal his secrets.
    • Nose
      Wax and an indefinable fruit first spread here and are replaced by a light spiciness. Fruit juice as well as canned peaches, salt, old motorcycle helmet, vanilla and coconut complete the quite complex nose.
    • Taste
      Right at the beginning there is honey here, which resonates with a fruity note. This whisky has a lot of power. Burnt nuts, slightly salty, apricot, coconut, milk chocolate and old cigarettes show that there is also a decent complexity in the taste.
    • Finish
      Medium to long.

    Notes during online testing.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Light gold

      Nose:
      Starts tropical and very waxy. Coconut, pineapple and canned peach. Sweet vanilla and, as a counterpoint, dry wood. Somewhat bitter herbs and something like sorrel. A light pinch of salt.
      With a little time in the glass, more essential oils and mint.
      If the colleague stands still longer, there is actually a subtle smoky note.
    • Taste
      Powerful start. A lot of alcohol. He pushes the sweet, light fruit flavors neatly into the hatch. The tropical is more in the background now. Coconut is the most likely to come through. Marzipan and a little chocolate. In addition, a little nutty and again the subtle smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Spicy and pleasant bitterness. Then again the tropical sweetness with a hint of smoke.
