expression and appreciation may be less, but it seemed softer and more drinkable than in the previous design ... good summer dram!
- N21 P21 F20 B21
- Nose: Very citrus-rich, lemon cake with frosting, sweet apples, marzipan, sage, fennel tea (but fortunately only a little, hate the stuff actually), Werther's real, milk chocolate, here and there a red fruit without exact assignment. Vineyard peach, Nashi pear, yes that smells like a typical mixture of bourbon and sherry casks for me ..
Taste: Nice mouthfeel, fermented apple, pressed sweet apple and pear juice, dark honey, subliminal roast aromas, hazelnut, cocoa, a bit of sea breeze. The citrus fruits from the nose, I think not so right back.
Finish: medium-long, again cocoa, dark honey, no bitterness, full-bodied chocolate, blood orange.
Very solid standard with the certain Inselkick, but the citrusy nose you have to like, is really very dominant.
- herbaceous, sweet, honeyed, on sour apples, malt, fresh and crushed almonds. a little cool glue too and dry wood.
the mouth on the fresh fruits, on the butter, the vanilla, the malt, it is soft, silky and round at the same time, but very pleasant in mouth.
simple finish on the same aromas, a few stones, malt, acidulous and juicy fruits.
- Very straightforward, simple whisky, but delicious at the same time. Dominated by green apple and citrus. One of the better standards in this age and price range.
The nose starts sweet with vanilla and honey, butterscotch. Citrus fruits mingle with green apples, gooseberries and raspberries. Add some damp leaves and a light herbal note.
Powerful onset, silky mouthfeel, honey sweetness, the citrus notes and green apple are the dominant aromas, to behave the berries. Slightly salty on the palate. Then the oak slowly becomes more dominant, bringing with it cocoa notes.
Medium long, dark chocolate, citrus, grapefruit, some caramel and red apple.
