Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Vůně vyznívá velmi temně. Docela mi připomíná ořechovku. Včelí plástve. Závan rumu (něco z těžších a lepších Plantationů a ano, i lékořice ve stylu Presidente Marti). Kůže, připálené rozinky na vánočce, exotické dřevo, santal, cedr, krabice od doutníků. S pěti kapkami vody na 30 ml whisky zesládne. Dřevo, rozinky, lehce větrová. (93 b)

Taste

Připálené rozinky, povidlový lektvar, hodně exotického dřeva, santal, hřebíček, čokoláda a tabák. V dozvuku pak silně opálený sud. (93 b)

Finish
Comments

Přímo jsem srovnával se svou GlenDronach 14 yo 1996 Oloroso Sherry Butt Cask 202. Ta vyznívá (ač je sama hutná a silná) výrazně svěžejším dojmem oproti této o pět let starší verzi. A těch 5 let je sakra znát. Jde o naprosto brutální výluh sudu. Extrémně hutná a koncentrovaná whisky, asi nejtemnější whisky, co jsem kdy pil, a to barvou, vůní, chutí i celkovým vyzněním. Špička. Moc mi chutnala a byl to skvělý degustační zážitek. Pocitově jako by jste pili třicetiletou nebo i starší whisky.

C'est très bon dans son registre, qui n'est pas franchement le mien. Très (trop) concentré, avec pas mal de bois. Je reste persuadé que tous ces Glendro Single Casks du début des 90's sont à oublier 20 ou 30 ans dans une cave afin de gagner le fondu et la finesse qui en feront peut-être les Tormore Samaroli de demain.

Tasting notes from the Label

Nose

Complex toasted oak aromas with an almost earthu presence. This is followed with treacle, nuts and wild honey.

Appearance

Rich cherry wood. Almost tawny, leading to a yellow edge.

Palate

A solid platform of sherry, spices fruit and toasted nuts with a surreal balance of vanilla and honey. Long and well craffted.

thick sweet and fruity sherry, musty forrest/leafs, fermented fruit, chocolate, woody / oak bark, slightly mineral/stoney, (91)

Finish

nice length & balance of sherry, sweetness & wood,  (89)
later: some sour but pleasant notes in the finish next to some dry dark wood, wood seems to turn dryer over time(86)

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Plutôt sur des fruits rouges légèrement acidulés ainsi que des cerises à l'eau de vie et du pruneau. Assez vineux. L'aération lui fait le plus grand bien : chocolat, légères notes terreuses (humus), noisette. Avec de l'eau, le nez se fait plus herbacé ce qui apporte une complexité supplémentaire et très agréable. Du pudding aussi!

Taste

L'alcool est bien trop présent est gâche le plaisir. Le milieu de bouche est plus posé : boisé et épices commencent à apparaître. Du chocolat aussi. Avec de l'eau, on a plus du tout cette attaque alcoolisée. Là encore, un léger côté herbacé (foin? en tout cas c'est agréable) prend place et s'allie au toffee et au cacao. Par contre, avec de l'eau, la bouche perd en relief, et reste relativement plate.

Finish

Relativement longue sur le tabac et les épices.

Comments

Malheureusement trop d'alcool en bouche sans eau. En tout cas, un gros sherry chocolat.
