The smell of vanilla and ripe fruits, vegetable broth and fruit compote with pudding. In addition, a malt candy, block malt, that always destroyed the tongue, but had a spicy sweetness. does it still exist Do I have to search...
Again, the alcohol is strong and could use a splash of water to calm you down. In the taste fruit compote with thickened, stewed apples and pears, plus vanilla pudding with real vanilla and parts of the pod, which was slightly sweetened with unrefined cane sugar. But the rest of the malt candy still sticks to the palate and gives additional sweetness.
In the aftertaste some wood with vanilla and a few grated coconut that got stuck between the teeth. The whole thing also lasts a little longer and leaves a nice taste in the mouth.
Aged 14 years, this whisky offers a good balance between fruit flavors and wood. The spicy aroma is nice, which is poorly described with vegetable broth, but has corresponding aspects and gives the whisky a certain depth. Can come from the worm tubs, but fortunately has no conspicuous sulfur component. A delicious whisky.
