Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Ei. Ich kann unreife Orangen und etwas undefiniertes Grünes hindurchriechen. Verschwindet glücklicherweise nach 5 Minuten im Glas und ermöglicht mir vernünftiges Genießen. Orangeat, Bitterorangenmarmelade, Eiche, alter Schuppen, in der zweiten Nase frisch gemähtes Gras, Geißblatt, Johannisbeeren. Sehr viel besser.

Taste

Saurer Antritt, reife Orangen, wird weicher, und honigsüßer, dann starke Olorosonoten mit Trockenpflaume, Rosinen, Walnuss, Mandeln, Amaretto.

Finish

Amaretto, Minze, Bittermandeln, Eichenwürze, eher trocken. Langer, würziger Nachgeschmack mit Amaretto, Holunderblüten und Geißblatt.

Comments

Ein spannender, komplexer Sherrywhisky, sowohl mit hellen als auch dunklen Aromen. Er profitiert von etwas Zeit zum Atmen. Die intensiven Olorosonoten werden hier von den frischen Aromen der Nase und Eichenwürze begleitet; schönev Sache.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Pfefferminz-Kaugummi, Mandarine, Orangeat, Rosé, Hefezopf mit Butter, der Alkohol ist vordergründig aber nicht aufdringlich, Himbeermarmelade, Spitzbuben, helles Karamell, Caramac, Marzipan, Amarenakirschen, leicht angebrannter Marshmellow, nach einer Weile wird er süßer und schokoladiger

Taste

Vollmundig, Sherryaroma, Butterweich, weisser Pfeffer, Rosinen, Sultaninen, Orangenmawürzig, Waldhonig, Ricola Kräuterbonbon, etwas Eiche, kaum Bitterkeit, es bleibt die Honignote

Finish

Lang

Comments

Ein rundum gut gemachter Whisky. Man darf ihm ruhig etwas Zeit schenken. Er wirkt old-school, ist sehr ausgewogen und insbesondere in der Nase sehr ausdrucksstark. Gefällt mir sehr gut - 20.05.2017

Nose

Schöne Fruchtigkeit, mit feinem Malz, Vanille, feine Eiche, vllt. etwas charakterlos insgesamt

Taste

Durchgehend Eiche aber lecker, feine Anis-Note, dazwischen Pfirsich, Apfel, etwas floral kribbelndes im Mund (Salz auch?). Sultainine und etwas Malz

Finish

Mittellang, würzig, etwas Anis bleibt, Eiche

Comments

Durchaus lecker, in der Mitte fast japanisch wirkend, Ende ist mir zu holzig. Keine Ahnung was der Herr unter mir hier für Darksherry-Noten hat, vllt. was anderes getrunken ;)

sherry; spices; oak; dark, dried fruits; sweetness; nutty notes; dark citrus notes; floral notes; hints of chocolate and coffee; strong barley note; creamy associations; oily character; raisins; sultanas; floral; honey; hinbts of (red) apples; overall very balanced and mature character with omnipresent spices

Taste

sherry; mild, creamy oak; floral; malted barley; dried fruits; less sweetness than the nose implies; spices; black coffee; dark, bitter chocolate; raisins; sultanas; hints of nuts; hints of apples; slightly floral; sweetness in the backround; overall very mature and oak-influenced character

Finish

medium; spicy; dry; oak; nutty; and sherry influenced character; overall mellow, mature and intense

Comments

a great understated Speyside single malt that has got a strenght character. It can easily compete with other better known Speyside distilleries.

Colour: Gold
Body: Full
Nose: Intense sherry nose. Very appley, menthol, creamy oak, sweet red apple, sharp green apple, apple crumble, bit of strawberry, brown sugar, vanilla, lots of honey, bit of pineapple, herbal note- Mint, olive oil?, sweet sherry, oaky tannins, coffee, bit of fruitcake. A little bit of heat.
Taste: Intense sweetness. Sweet red apple, sharp green apple, sharp unripe pear, bit of cranberry, brown sugar, aged sweet sherry, lots of oak interaction- Old wood and sweet oak, drying spices build, cream, fruitcake.
Finish: Medium length. Drying sweet oaky spices fade, then sweet sherry kick to end.
A lovely Speyside malt. Enough character to separate it from the 50 or so other Speyside distilleries.
