Dünn, Fruchtigkeit wie verdünnt, gammelig - fast schon ein gähriges Prickeln auf der Zunge - wie fauliges Obst. Bitternoten. fast nicht trinkbar

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

w/o water: hint of sulphur. Red, dark fruit, apples, banana, mint, eucalyptus, thyme, wood glue.

w/ water: less sulphur, less sweet, more mint and eucalyptus. Definitely more spices. Less wood.

Taste

w/o water: long, sweet dark fruit arrival. Long development of warm sweetness, hints of mint, cake, icing sugar, wood spices.

w/ water: the arrival is drier, longer development with more spiciness, less mint, lots of wood.

Finish

Long finish of sherry wood spiciness, dry and warm.

Comments

Take your time with this dram. Playing with water pays dividends. Lots going on. The wood influence on this whisky gives much room for play and enjoyment.

Color
Amber
Nose
Плотный, насыщенный, сухофрукты - курага, изюм, раздавленные виноградные косточки, тёплое дерево, что-то типа ящика для сигар или табака, лимонад, немного апельсиновых корок и красных апельсинов, сладкая вата, сладкий виноградный сироп, персики.


Taste
Кисло-сладкий, дерево, сухофрукты, немного перца и имбиря, шоколад.


Finish
Мягкое и деликатое, лёгкая перчёность и специи на фоне сдержанного, но мощного кисло-сладкого, с древесным привкусом, полотна. Далее остаётся лёгкая горчинка на изюмном фоне.


Comments

Очень и очень неплохо, особенно удался аромат, казалось, что на вкус будет чистый сироп, но кислые нотки во вкусе и послевкусии выправили ситуацию; По типу и возрасту напрашивается сравнение с Glendronach Revival и сравнение будет не в пользу Glenfarclas - близко, весьма близко, но по всем пунктам Revival опережает данный образец, налицо недостаток разнообразия оттенков и полутонов при достаточной глубине и мощи.
