Update .. With time in the bottle, the 1st octave gains in harmony and fruitiness despite its age and the coppers lose their taste over time in the bottle. Something. devaluation
Over time, fruity acidity comes through, as with some imperial ones
Is the 3rd known dalmunach bottling after the distillery Reserve and the Octave.
What kind of barrel is that ... Not old, but it is so strongly based on Madeira wine .. Unbelievably active barrel, it shouldn't stay inside any longer. You could almost think that it is not whisky at all, so fruity like peach and grapes. You can tell alcohol in the nose ... but it works. Even some wood and a little malt come through. Very well chosen
With water .. the taste remains the same, it becomes rounder and softer. Now there is clearly added vanilla. The Madeira is going back a bit .. Fits.
Fruit bomb squared. Can even be sipped with 61%, but carefully. Peaches and grapes again Madeira without end. Then come back wood, some pepper or ginger with malt. Amazing for the age, the young cannot be recognized.
Definitely easier to drink with water .. Does not lose its taste either .. It even becomes dangerously drinkable and yet very special. Vanilla comes through more.
Fruity and then becomes dry and a little pepper or ginger. So if the exit were better ... top candidate. But for something young and new the price is absolutely fair. Würdinger successor to Imperial. Tastes a little different but also super fruity. As a dalmunach employee told me, some elements from Imperial were also installed at dalmunach. I'm curious what will come next. Buy recommendation absolutely on my part
With water the finish is actually much better and fruity .. The bitter goes away and the vanilla comes with it. The finish benefits fully from the water. Points and thumbs up
