    Not wrong here. A solid drinking strength sherry whisky. Here and there a few notes that are too young are involved. Cask strength could probably conceal a lot. The glue and woody notes can be exhausting. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/09/01/mehr-speyside-im-glas/

    The malt is full with a full, dark sherry load on the nose, which then changes into tobacco, leather and wood aromas. In the taste and in the finish it is also not stingy with aromas and is strong and dominant. The finish pleases, as the tobacco and leather components stick longer. A nice companion for a winter evening in front of the fireplace in the leather armchair.

      In the nose, a rich, dark-fruity sherry nose with aromas of berries such as blueberries can be seen. After a few minutes of rest in the glass, it becomes aromatic woody and also clear tobacco notes combined with leather come to the fore.
    • Taste
      86 86
      It starts with a round, creamy mouthfeel. An initial sweet, caramelized fruitiness - especially the berries on the nose - is relatively quickly alternated with a tangy, spicy taste. The tobacco comes after. The oak becomes clearer in taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The oak, the wood is also evident at the beginning of the finale. Slight bitterness, more like dark chocolate, is present. The finish is medium-long and is remembered a little longer with tobacco and leather aromas.
