How does the new 21er compare to the delicious 15er. Is double the price justified ...
Very diacetyl-heavy, buttery caramel, walnut, orange oil, sweet sherry aromas, dry oak spice, cinnamon, marzipan, baked apple, milk chocolate, a nuance of smoke
Vegetable, hay, cornflowers, thyme, the sherry aromas are weaker than those of the 21st, fresh oak, light smoke, mineral, cocoa
sweet wood spice, buttery bitter orange, milk coffee, dried cranberries, beautifully woven light smokiness, sweet and spicy sherry
Sour cherries, softwood, cinnamon, medium smoky note, apples, nice bourbon sherry mix
bittersweet, slightly furry, sour sherry note, medium length
sweet campfire smoke, tobacco, milk coffee, long and pleasant
2 very different whiskys, both nevertheless with the typical distillery character.
The 21er has the larger proportion of sherry and is deeper, more elegant and hardly smoky. The 15er is wilder, more vegetal and scores with the finish.
21er 89 P / 15er 88 P
I think the price of the 21 is justified because it is a lot more elegant.
