Nose: The sherry is immediately present and brings with it woody notes and nuts.
The "dark" notes are dominating here at first: with coffee-roast aromas, espresso, latte macchiato ... everything is very round and velvety. There is not this typical sherry gravy, this comes a bit steamed and slightly dry therefore.
The alcohol is noticeable, but not disturbing. The sweetness is becoming more and more weighty and also has slight hints of fruit (citrus notes - lime?). However, acid hardly plays a role. It probably hides behind the ginger, which pulls easily in the nose ... Any fruit: if fruits play a role, then maybe apple.
Light smoke hangs over it, which becomes more and more obvious with time ... Here plays something burnt (onions ???) with ... And bacon. Amazing! - That's ... yes. This is the Strathmill ... Gorgeous! After a long time in the glass, this note is very praesent (and sometimes even dominant!) - This smoke is charcoal smoke ... (Especially in empty glass clearly noticeable!). And it comes (after a long time!) Even a very light, slightly sour breath of cow shed on ... Wow! Incredible.
Somehow, this malt is divided between, both before, as well as after the transformation (and in between!) - And: he commutes again and again.
Every nosing reveals something new: pleasant wood ... hints of Old Bottle Flavor ... dark chocolate ... coffee ...
Taste: the malt begins with some sweetness (oelig-sueß) in the direction of pumpkin-core oil ... If you keep it in your mouth and chew it, this impression changes towards raisin syrup (is there anything like that at all?). But with (!) The little Pippussen who sometimes still hang on the raisins ... Hmmm. Raisin juice with alcohol and: not much alcohol ...
Heat builds in the mouth and slowly pulls through the entire upper body. At the back the taste becomes bitter, but not disturbing.
Departure: The departure starts strong, but let it down quickly. A comparison with Metaxa (?) Can not be completely dismissed.
Conclusion: If you enjoy the smell of a whisky (or who has explorer-joy in it), who will have fun here ... The part is a Chamaeleon! Incredibly changeable ... Pleasant. Nice.
