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 "main thing sherry". The alcohol is so intense above all and it makes it clear how the sherry gets through here. There are only two pairs of boots on the palate. 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 the "modern kind" of whisky that I don't prefer. Like the glutamate in food. Because I would also like to address the PLV and everyone should think about it now! A package "bigger" than many others. Inside, however, there is only a 50cl bottle "padded" and the issue price is already doubled 2 days later. Question to the nation: Do we want to support this format? André's generous sample is enough for me and a warm greeting to Schleusingen in the archive :))
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: "Welcome to the new world of whisky!"
