    Sweet, fruity, peaty, greasy and earthy. As always tasty and drinkable, unfortunately also interchangeable ...

    • Nose
      Light rust with an orange shimmer rests in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter oily and syrupy "legs" pull their thick strips back into the glass. Sweet peat rises, minimal smoke notes join in, greasy pork belly is left out in butter. Mineral with sweet and dark fruits, vanilla and sugar, hints of strawberries and juicy oranges, minimally musty. Raisins and dates, spicy wood and minimal hints of dried herbs and spices. Velvety fruity sweetness with peat and wood dominate ...
    • Taste
      Sweet dried fruits wet the tongue, gentle peat and minimal smoke cover the palate with cozy warmth, currants and strawberries, raisins and dates, hints of creamy bacon and gravy, brine and a pinch of pepper, creamy and sweet ...
    • Finish
      Subtly wooden with a peaty note of bacon. Dried grapes and berries, sweet and creamy, hints of hazelnut and dry leaves, earthy and gentle.

    The finish didn't leave a lot of extra flavors here. By no means a bad whisky, but after the intensive sherry barrel maturation of the last few years, this one is a bit unexpectedly subtle for me. Very nice for friends of the distillery character.

      Light fruit notes, vanilla, oak, pepper, later also red fruits, subtle smoke notes, overall not as intense as previous bottlings.
    • Taste

      The alcohol is well integrated, the texture inconspicuous to slightly robust compared to its creamy predecessors. Better with water.
      Vanilla, pepper, oak and honey, light and red fruit notes in the background.

      Medium to long, beautiful oak bitterness and pleasant smoke elements merge, sweetness and spiciness accompany, the 1816 distillery character is very present.
