Personally, I even prefer it to the 12.
[80 - 76 = 'really not bad'-whisky -> but do I need a (second) bottle?]
initially a lot of fruit in the nose; light fruits (ripe pear, fresh apricot, yellow apple) with powdered sugar.
Hints of honey and caramel that become clearer over time. A little cinnamon comes out.
Light herbal notes in the background.
Quite soft at the start and with very spicy aromas (cinnamon, nutmeg).
The fruits are there, but they are somewhat suppressed by the oak aromas.
The tongue and mouth are quickly dried out. A slightly bitter note emerges (dark chocolate), but luckily it does not turn into bitterness.
Second sip: even softer, this time with more sweetness and also more fruit. The spices remain, but give more space for the fruit flavors.
Third sip: Sweet and it will be creamier on the tongue, even if there is a certain tingling spice.
Medium-long finish with the light fruits and especially the spicy aromas. Oak becomes a bit more dominant at the back.
He's also getting drier.
