Expert Senior Goethe Tasting note

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Red and dark fruits, old leather, tobacco, dark berries, mushrooms and old furniture.

Taste

Red and dark fruits, old leather, tobacco, dark berries (blackberries, ripe currants), mushrooms and old furniture.

Finish

Long. Dark fruits and dark chocolate.

Comments

Amazing Longmorn, well done by GM, this bottling is something for the long term maturation First Fill Sherry Butt fraction.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 6/10

Color
Tawny
Nose

Red fruits and raisin. Soon something like cabbage or cauliflower in broth that draws the attention because it's such an unusual note. When that withdraws to the background let's return to the fruit: cranberry and blackberry. Furthermore caramel and a little melon. Then cigars in a box and eventually apple syrup. It closes rather than further opening when in the glass for over 15 minutes.

Taste

Cranberry, tobacco and leather. But also a surprisingly fresh fruitiness of peach candy and maybe even some blood orange. Definitely unexpected for first fill sherry at this age. A little mocha.

Finish

Dark cherry, peach and dark chocolate.

Comments

Was on my wishlist and I do love it, but at current prices (600 euros) I'm going to skip it anyway. Guess I should have acted more quickly.

Opened yesterday. Just on light smoke and Mon Cheri, rather sweet than dry, full of taste but alcohol perfectly integrated. Will see in some weeks how it evolves...

A la longue je devrais essayer le sherry vieillli en fût de single malt...

p4blo gave this whisky 97 points
Color
Old oak
Nose

Gentle smoke and oak wood at first, earthy notes with mushrooms, wet grass, then soy sauce, a hint of rubber. After a while, the more fruity side starts revealing itself with tons of dark fruits and a whiff of lemon grass. Ever changing.

Taste

A fruit explosion with all kinds of berries - blackberries, blueberries, raspeberries, you name it. A layer of oranges and lemons.

Finish

This gently transforms to blackcurrant liquer and maracuja and lasts long after the last sip.

Comments

A grand, majestic whisky. I loved it.

FARBE: dunkles mahagoni

NASE: Gebrannte Mandeln, fetter Sherry, Kommodenlack, frisch aufgebrühter Pfefferminztee.

GESCHMACK: Schön eingebundener Sherry mit Zarbitterschoki 70% breiten sich in der Mundhöhle aus.
Darauf noch Mon Cheri und Weinbrandbohnen gepaart mit leicht rauchigem Süssholz, Karamell.

ABGANG: Bleibt lange mit allen Geschmacksnuancen am Gaumen bestehen.

FAZIT: Toller Vertreter seiner Zunft, aber Zeit zum Atmen sollte man/frau ihm geben. :top:

This needs both water and time to open up... but when it does... BAM! WOW! what a dram!
