- Interessanter Old-style Standard
Sofort springt die Old-Style-Fruchtnase entgegen - der Dram scheint eine Abfüllung eines Destillats aus den 70ern zu sein - Zwetschgen, gelbe Pflaumen, saftige Pfirsiche, Sherryeinfluss, Honig, Vanille, Bienenwachs
extrem weich und cremig, süße gelbe Früchte, Honigwein - leichter Körper - im Mund bei weitem nicht so komplex wie in der Nase
fruchtig und eher kurz - sehr süffig - ganz weit hinten ist doch noch eine Holznote vernehmbar
- Great. The sweet fruitiness of the younger siblings combined with the long maturation period of 17 years and a (once) unbeatable price. Unfortunately not in the range anymore. Too bad.
Oak, nuts and sherry. Subtly sweet apples sneak into it. A little orange, followed by pleasant vanilla and a hint of warm cocoa.
Creamy and syrupy with lots of oak, toffee and cocoa. Again fruit and malt.
Long and warm with clear oak.
- Great nose, sweet, tart, oak and spice in balance on the palate, fruity and dry on the finish
Blueberry, cranberry sauce, vanilla, graham,
Clean sherry and oak, cherries and spices,
Dry sweetness, red fruits and nice oak/spice
- The taste is a bit disappointing compared to the nose and the finish actually. But it’s not a bad whisky, just not very special.
Blueberries, and loads of it. Fresh prunes. Followed by a hint of honey. A touch of lemon. And then it goes back to blueberries again. A bit of oak. Liquorice. And a bit nutty; walnut.
Plenty of honey here and it’s creamy. Raisins. Then stewed apples and walnuts again. Oak. And a subtle hint of Tobacco.
Mid-long and somewhat drying. Nutmeg. Dark chocolate. A hint of peppermint.
- Body: Medium, very firm and smooth.
Warm and dry. Maltiness and fruitiness. Palo cortado sherry. Cedar and fresh oak.
Deep rich flavours. Malt,clean fruitiness, nuttiness cedar, more oak. Really hitting its stride as a mature, sophisticated whisky.
Long and allusively sherryish.
- Wow, that's a heck of a dram. It's quite dry and bitter, a bit too much to my liking actually. The nose is by far the best part.
Oloroso sherry, combined with barley sweetness. It has the smell of sultanas, christmas cake, vanilla, walnut and honey. Deep down is the spirit sweetness of pear and toffeed apple to be detected.
Quite sour and drying, as can be expected but what wasn't announced by the nose. It's actually borderline dryness. Bitter grape seeds take over, with overcooked gunpowder tea, and bone dry oloroso (but than not the fruity sort). Some walnut skin enters the palet too.
Stays rather austere and bone dry. Gets more towards bitter walnut skin, ultra dry oloroso and grape seeds.
- The nose is like a less extremely oaked Yamazaki 12. The wood tones are present but rounder and not very dominating. A liqueur-like smell, with spice (cardamom and allspice) with some plum or apricot skin, and toasted peanut. An impression of sun dried tomatos. Rich in taste with a good mix of cherry and oak. Surprisingly dry finish yet despite dryness the taste stays a satisfyingly long while.
