- Nothing too fancy, just beyond acceptable.
- Good beginner. The nose is great, then the wood is almost a bit too dominant, the fruits could have had more say.
Fruity, jelly pear, pineapple, almost tropical, with a little oak. Sweet, but successful.
Mild & round. First comes a barrage of oak, then the fruity flavors set, while then again the nutty oak takes over the word.
Bittersweet, relatively much wood, nice nutty finish.
- A bit bigger and better than the 10. However the price increases too. There are better options in this price class.
Honey, soft, very easy opening, baked apple.
Cake, cream, honey and chocolate chip cookies, a little sherry gives some raisins.
Vanilla, spices like ginger, short
- sweet fudge, buttery, some honey and after a while the sherry sweetness. some berries, hints of oranges, nuts. oaky even a soft bitter note in there. nice dram to start, well balanced
- Very nice this 12 old.
Rich and full, some smokiness , Fruity with red apples, also dark chocolate, dried fruit, some ginger.
Lovely with, sherry tones, combined with fruit,toffee,ginger and some spiciness .
Long and warm, complex, it comes al together .
