[March, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I got as a present in March, 2013.

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 it 85.  I took no notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

A lot better than price, (no) name and buying place (best-known German discounter) makes you think. Blind tasting highly recommended!

Nose

Malz, gedoerrte Apfelschnitze, Fruechte (Pflaumen), Eiche, Nuss

Taste

nussig und leicht alkoholisch

Finish

Milchschokolade, Eiche, Haselnuss, ziemlich kurz, mit einer alkoholischen Note. Die Trockenheit laesst sogar auf einige Sherryfaesser schliessen.

Comments

Bei ALDI gibt es diesen Blackstone 18yo zum Preis von CHF 26.90. Gemaess gar nicht so unglaubhaften Internetquellen soll es sich um einen Glen Ord (Diageo) handeln. Weigere mich standhaft, diesem Tropfen eine schlechte Note zu geben, bloss weil es ein guenstiger no-name ist.
