Comments


Der ist wesentlich frischer als ich ihn in Erinnerung hatte. Der Geruch braucht etwas Zeit, um sich voll zu entwickeln. Dann ist er sehr aromatisch und vielschichtig.

Im Mund lässt er etwas Komplexität vermissen, schmeckt aber gut. Der Abgang ist leider etwas eindimensional.

Es ist schon ein paar Jahre her, dass ich diesen Whisky probiert hatte. Heute bin ich etwas enttäuscht. Ich war der Meinung, dass der Whisky auch in Sherryfässern reifen durfte. Sherryeinfluss finde ich heute jedoch kaum.

Nose

A fragrant, delightful nose with a lot of green apples and vanilla, and with a note of raisins in the background. Also some ginger and a hint of cinnamon.

Taste

Very pleasant arrival with vanilla, toffee and fresh fruits; Apples and pears. Develops apricot, ginger and peppery spiciness.

Finish

Fairly long. Light vanilla and fresh fruit with a spicy and slightly bitter note of ginger and oak.

Comments

A whisky that exudes quality and a very good choice when you’re in the mood for a sweet whisky, that is still distinguished, restrained and not overly sherried.

Color
Burnished
Nose

citrus (ripe oranges), hint of marzipan and almonds, nut wood, touch of cocoa/chocolate

Taste

grainy, again citrus (sweet and sour), some mineral and metal notes. later in the development I got touches of salted toffee and chocolate

Finish

not very long, a bit sticky-glue-y in a pleasant way, syrupy, sweet and sour (the citrus again)

Comments

An 18 year that tastes younger (14 - 15 -ish). The promising nose doesn't really evolve into much else in the taste and finish. it's not a very complex whisky, but it is pretty well balanced with no off-notes what so ever. Very enjoyable, but not really remarkable: 83-84 points

Color
Amber
Nose

Весьма субтильный, цветочно-фруктовый, осветлённый яблочный сок, кожура зелёных кислых яблок, персик, лимонадные нотки, сладко-сливочные тона на заднем плане.

Taste

Сдержанный, нежно перечный, умеренно сладкий с пряной дубовой горчинкой.

Finish
Мягкое, розовый перец, шкурки апельсина, лёгкие сливочные тона, нежная дубовая горчинка.


Comments

Хорошо сбалансированный, мягкий, деликатный, "женский" молт. Из недостатков - чрезмерная заглаженность на грани потери индивидуальности, общая субтильность, ощущение недостаточной крепости, водянистость во вкусе, скучно в целом.
