Flowery, old school "cardboard box", wood glue, sanding dust from dry rotten old wood, a hint of licorice and licorice, delicate smoke, very oily

- Really good!
Very dark color, very appetizing.
The first impression is very good. Fruity, rosy, floral, but strong! Grapes, raisins, a touch of glue. Was he actually in the sherry barrel?
Sweet and fruity in taste - and wow! - very strong. Pfaumenkompott, cloves, ... with time getting spicier.
Very long, fruity and spicy finish. My tongue is furry ...
- Complex and delicious.
Sublime, liquoreux, net influence of sherry, red fruits, candied oranges, some spices, honeyed wax, some floral notes.
With water: more "picotant"
Powerful but mellow, lots of fruit (oranges, blackcurrant, apricot), a little bitterness (gentian), salt and spices (chilli), precious woods, some green notes.
With water: brings out the fruit, honey.
Very long, caramel, persistent bitterness on the tongue.
- An atypical Dalwhinnie with a rich and intense spicy sherry influence, without any rubbery offnote. A most pleasant whisky
- Spicy sweetness with a little smoke. Very dry, almost like drinking a dry white wine. With a few drops of water Water the sweet honey-like notes are better revealed. In my opinion, a poor price / performance ratio.
