Whisky Reviews for Gold Cock 2008

- excelent whisky
- This bottling of Gold Cock just has it all - more % ABV than standard ten years old bottling and 5 months long finish in Welschriesling which makes it rounder and more complex.
- I'm kidnapped ;-) This is supposed to make an ideal finish. Not to create an interesting liqueur with the victory of that finish, not to overcharge a failed whisky. The finish should keep the original character of the whisky (primarily juicy plum) in the primary and gently add it a little extra. Here it is the rounding of the edges with white wine, sweet fruitiness, the unmistakable Rýzlink vlašský VOC Pálava ;-) It is not possible to stay somewhere halfway with this whisky. Either you will love it or you already love it :) You won't find a better Gold Cock after white wine :-P
Typical juicy plum Gold Cock, tinted with fruity sweetness, the combination acts as a dessert sweet white wine, honey, cinnamon. Without water, it shows the nose with the high power of alcohol. With water more stoneiness, nuts, as if some dry sherry took over the reins.
In the beginning it attacks sharply, very strong whisky, jam undertones. Who will last, the reward is extreme pepperiness with razor blades ;-) With water (no need to save and drip) it's mainly about the juicy goldcock with some exotic spices in the supplement.
Medium-long, sweet wine, jam, gingerbread spices, ash-covered wood, dark chocolate, cocoa, bread. With water less that fruitiness and more that coffeeiness and breadiness, softer, perhaps even longer.
