Mango, melon, vanilla, very fruity overall
A fear cocktail that I can not match. malty and honey,
In short, a little caramel, a few fruits ..., dry. Not very exciting.
- From a blind tasting:
07/10/2017 N: sherry, vanilla, melon, apple, wood, non-alcoholic, mild T: Melon, consistency slightly "viscous" - oily, caramel, overripe apple, banana, exotic fruits A: unobtrusive, medium long, mild N23, T20, A19, B19
12/10/2017 N: Wood, fresh apple, orange, vanilla, slightly turpentine, barely alcohol, rather young? Bourbon Barrel? T: a lot of fruit, alcohol clearly noticeable, pleasant oily in the mouth, A: max. medium-long, fruit decreases significantly, slightly arbitrary, clearly alcohol N21, T20, A18, B19
13/10/2017 Tend today again to the verdict of 7.10. This somewhat oily consistency speaks more for an older whisky. The extreme fruitiness N and T speaks rather for a younger. The almost arbitrary departure does not speak for an old man. In any case, I would associate it with the Speyside, sherry keg. Under no circumstances has more than 43% vol. Balance: It smells pretty good, tastes quite good, but loses significantly on the finish. With just under 80 out of 100 points, I would rate him. I could imagine that I would like to drink it every now and then. He has a seat in my bar.
- very light and pleasant
- fruity - sweet
- fruity (pear, apples) - slightly spicy - aromatic
- medium long - slightly bitter
- I like it more than the standard 12yo.
- Not too bad for a NAS single malt scotch.
Very fruity and sweet, vanilla, caramel.
Several undefined fruits, caramelized sugar, honey, milk-chocolate, hazelnuts, almonds, oak/tannins, hints of sherry.
Medium long and dry.
- I tasted twice blindly, and thirdly, aware of what I was drowning. In the remarks, I remind Balblair of 1997 and 2000. One of the tips was also some BenRiach, notorious as the secret tips of 20 yo and 15 yo Sauternes. Tasting had a descending tendency, I was most interested in the first sample, secondly I had a lower rating, and I was the lowest in the third. Whatever it is, I do not know myself. For megavzorek with a volume of 1 deci thank you very much to Peter.
Pretty malt, fruity, spice and honey, so such a classic. But it adds something extra, fruity acidity, pears, pear. (83 b)
Smoother flavor, vanilla, honey and wood. Maybe a slightly thinner body than I liked but overall cool. A slight hint of tanned wood in the flavor. (83 b)
