    Meaningful and mature aroma, with excellent saturation. I have not met such a pile of bacon and pepper to taste for a long time.
    • Nose
      Wine notes, sherry, dried herbs, vanilla, wild berries, apples, lemon, sweet pastries, sea salt, notes of leather and oak, cookies with condensed milk, a little later the bourbon side of aging, toffees, sweet peanuts, cookies with the aroma of melted milk .
    • Taste
      Tart, sweet and sour, a bunch of bacon, pepper, salted caramel, dried fruit, a little wax.
    • Finish
      Bacon, a bunch of peppers, oak, lemon peel, wax, long.

    20 year old Clynelish by Maltbarn (Martin Diekman). On the Granville label, as in one of his previous releases).
    Three and a half years ago, Martin bought a 16.5 year old Clynelish cask (according to the records it is written by Highland Malt, but
    There is no doubt this is Clynelish) with the idea of pouring both half buns at the same time when they are 20 years old, which is reflected on the labels ("black and white" or "yin and yang").
    The first half of the barrels was matured in a sherry barrel for an additional 3.5 years and bottled for Ukrainian maltbar fans.
    The second half barrels are fully matured in a bourbon barrel and bottled for the Ukrainian whisky club "Double Whisky". Both publications are available in a limited edition of 100 bottles each

    Nice and stable (no development), very pleasant dry sherry nose...
    The taste is not for everybody, for some reason he crawls out cheap wine - ?
    The finish is strange, sour in a big gulp, but again not for everybody.
    I will definitely try it after a while, let it breathe in the bottle.

    At the finish line is strongly dominated by
    the taste of a spoiled barrel or technical sherry ?
