    Exceptional and really well matured in sherry casks, only in comparison to the overaged it falls off significantly for me
    • Nose
      89 89
      In fact fairground sweetness with cotton candy, candied apples and roasted almonds
    • Taste
      85 85
      ... which then unfortunately pass into slightly burnt almonds in the mouth. A little like bacon-wrapped dates left on the grill a little too long.

      The aftertaste is more pleasant than in the mouth, the smoke quickly subsides and changes into a medium-long, sherry-sweet aftertaste. Compared to the overaged but clearly weaker

    • Nose
      86 86
      Initially penetrating sweet, sugar cane syrup, almost rum-like.
      After the first sip and with a little time, malty, doughy notes come to the fore
    • Taste
      86 86
      Not too sweet, almond biscuits, a little dirty but pleasant and warming.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Rather short, slightly drying.

    Blind tasting
    Tried again a year later in the blender glass and upgraded one point in the nose and finish. More engine room found, much more complexity discovered. Great whiskey.

      Blind tasting:

      Nice nose, very balanced, in the foreground the fruity, but there is also a slight dirtiness, no alcohol at all, definitely a sherry malt. Tap the MC Candid.
    • Taste

      Very mild, then warmer, that's how it has to be. Like the nose, nice fruitiness and again this dirtiness in the middle. Could have a little more depth, slightly bitter, go for 12 years. Sweetness is also there and good.
