- Better than I remembered him. Exciting, tasty, intense.
Start with cherry, then some musty sherry, raisins, you can already feel the quite high alcohol content, the nose closes quickly, if you are not careful, the smoke is very well integrated, has a little something grassy, milk chocolate, espresso, and always again this slightly spicy herbaceous note, with time I also find approaches from the violet
very oily, creamy, sweet, but also dry, some oak, sherry notes mixed with floral notes, the smoke nestles gently, some sulfur, roasted nuts, intense, I like, very complex and exciting
a nut-violet mixture, floral, supple, then comes back to the smoke, creamy, some dark chocolate with espresso Crisp, beautiful
- True Islay splendor (oddly, one 5.5 years open, hence enough oxidized bottle)!
Smoked meat, herring, rosemary, bouillon, orange peel, celery leaves, lovage, musty, (with water) cumin, salty pickle, dill, turpentine.
Plastic, caramel, salinity, vegetable stock, (with water) orange jam, campari, orange peel, icing sugar, toffee.
Long and pleasant finish. Peat, lovage, salinity and legume soup.
- Needs no dilution, nice and varied on the tongue. At times a bit too bitter to be a real blast.
At the beginning custard with Christmas spices. Sherrynoten, leather, tobacco, clay soil. Taking the nose out of the glass and moving it at some distance under the nose, Black Forest ham, roasted aromas and something floral, floral. A dark nose. Smoke is not noticeable. Come with the time
Pleasantly warm, undiluted not too strong. A perfumed note pulls through. Quick come red grapes and black cherries and a tart, slightly bitter wood note. Herbs and honey. Dark chocolate.
Medium to long, with some sherry, bitter oak and herbs.
- It starts a bit unhappy with the nose. But if you take your time, it will become more and more interesting and complex. Then it becomes very herbaceous and produces beautiful sherry notes. Slightly sulphurous and not very smoky. Great finish!
- To be honest, I think the sherry is no better than the bourbon, but not worse, just different. He has an up and down nose, but which is quite interesting, at least after he has stood, is in the mouth of the consistency nice and full, only the finish is clearly too short. Nevertheless, he gets two points less than the Bourbon, I am with 83 points. I'm a little bit dioxide-plump.
Notes from an online chat tasting
Hmpf, something strange initial nose. Provencal ham (jep, violet) with dark, candied fruit and something, um, let's call it sulfur dioxide. I let the first breathe now ...
Nothing against sulfur, but the dioxide bothers something ...
Phew, luck, the pups is gone ... After a while the nose looks much more harmonious, the smoke is mild and ashen, the ham is now rather a broth with spring herbs, sherrylastig he is not straight, only a few full fruit notes hovering in the background, but there are really beautiful herbs, something Sulfur and a leather tobacco pouch, pipe tobacco with floral impact. When heated, the result is a rather oblique picture, dominated by the flowers and the broth, so to speak salted flower soup.
Strong start, a tiny bit sprittig, behind dark fruity and malty, some dark chocolate, but much less oak plank than the bourbon. The mouthfeel is nice and oily, but at the second sip he gets a bit too herbaceous and tart.
Hui is the fast way! Honestly, I can't say anything about the sequence now, just swallow it ...
And now the finish is still there, pretty harsh still, then becomes increasingly salty ashes. Nevertheless fast away ...
