    Bought the 5cl sample in the Brühl whisky house for 6.5 euros. Tried it right next to the 12 standard. The 12 is a bit rounder, more harmonious and sweeter.
    I like both about equally.

    With 2 drops of water to 2cl, it becomes rounder for me without losing much of its aroma.

    Just about okay for the money, but there are definitely more exciting things out there.

      The nutty flavors are definitely there, but this one is less soft-sweet and spicier. You can also feel the 3-year age difference, but that's definitely still within limits and by no means sprightly. The sherry spice is more present than the sherry sweetness. I've got a lot of nuts here, mostly walnuts, then mushy fruit, but I can't pinpoint which - more dark, mushy fruit, maybe cherries. All not bad, but a bit trivial and boring.

      The mouthfeel fits on the palate; It doesn't blow my mind, but I didn't expect that either. I like it better diluted down than a comparable strong cask with well over 50 percent. The fact that he is a bit thin is not due to the percentages, but to his age. Here a little more sweetness from old plums, wood and nuts again.

      Short but round.

    Anyone expecting a fruity sherry whisky here is wrong. This is a dram for fans of spicy, rather rough whiskys.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Very nutty and spicy nose, with some smoke, little fruit. Overall somewhat restrained.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Surprising sweetness at the beginning, then the spicy aromas take over, less smoke than in the nose. Hardly any fruit and not enough complexity.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium to long finish with clear spice and some pepper.

  6. Iron_Calli scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Quite a spicy malt that shows a much sweeter side with a drop of water.

    Quite tasty, but it doesn't really leave a lasting impression...

    A little more interesting malt. Still reasonable and somewhat complex on the nose, the tannins are too strong on the palate. You don't have to buy.
    • Nose

      slightly short finish with noticeable bitterness, light fruits, oak and peppery alcohol

    Great value for money. Gentle sherry influence, pretty mild. Raisins, caramel definitely a lovely daily dram.
