It is really difficult for me to stay fair here, because I now compare it a bit wacky with "food and glutamate". There are people who are looking for exactly that and who like to eat. But that has always been an issue for me. And although I don't know the process of how to transport these intense / elegant sherry aromas into a bottle in such a short time, I now claim, very cheeky, that this whisky has the simple format "Sherry Beast". The alcohol is intense above all but well integrated and it becomes clear how intense the sherry comes through here. All very elegant and mouth-flattering. On the palate, there are mainly two topics that preoccupy you. The alcohol & sherry. So I would even speak of one-dimensional. Or as I often say, you drive on the sherry one-way street. However, I honestly have to admit that, with a Bentley. But for me personally this is exactly this "modern type" of whisky that I don't prefer. Like the glutamate in food. I would also like to briefly address the PLV and everyone should think consciously now! An outer packaging "bigger" than many others. Inside there is only a 50cl bottle "padded" and the issue price is already doubled 2 days later. Question to the nation: Do / should we get used to this format? ...? In any case, I would like to thank André for the generous rehearsal and send a warm greeting to Schleusingen in the archive under the beautiful castle :))
PS. My honest respect goes out to the manufacturers, because this whisky is looking for its equal and will find many lovers. A unicorn among the 5 year olds.
I even say: Milestone "Welcome to the new world of whisky!"
