- I also had that from a set. Honestly, I took a biased line. He has everything that should not be. 40% / color / filter etc. But, I'm pleasantly surprised and now I would say in terms of price performance, he does not need to hide. AND: He has an age.
Smells very malty sweet towards honey breakfast.
I'm surprised how pleasant it comes on the nose. He even comes a little bit flowery. Respect.
Wow, distillery comes through immediately and remains spicy on the palate. Not bad Mister Specht. Salty and bitter dissolve. Mouth remains occupied with some lemon and mild apple / pear (Helene sends greetings) Fully OK.
Actually medium to long and tenderly bitter but not unpleasant. The sweetness comes back quickly and combines pleasantly with this bitter note. Could be good with your meal.
Bitter orange, nutmeg and other spices, cut flowers, a little vanilla.
Fruity orange, aperol, malt, a hint of smoke. Very mild and restrained, not very complex.
Short to medium length with tart citrus fruit and some spice.
- A classic Speysider, as it is in the book. Gorgeous seasoning. Deductions are in the finish, which otherwise can actually keep up well, due to the very disturbing sulfur note.
sweet, delicately smoky, fruity with a touch of exoticism, banana, a good portion of vanilla, a little soft oak with caramel notes, then the fine spiciness of sandalwood, malt and bread, beeswax, flower meadow, hints of sugared lemon jelly, orange, honeydew melon and gooseberry , semi-acidic apples, looks dusty
soft, initially slightly sweet with a dash of vanilla, then rather neutral, pleasant bitterness of cocoa, a lot of malt, white oak, again subtle (cigarette) smoke, some caramel, then come with sandalwood and cinnamon spicy and intense components, plus a pinch ground ginger, galia melon and guava, raisins and orange, flowery, ripe apples
dry-citrusy, slightly bitter chocolate and spicy, barley malt, hay, more subtle smoke, sulphurous notes, hazelnut, plum jam at the end
fresh and fruity - green apple, fresh grass
Sherry, honey, melon, pleasantly soft, spicy
pleasant long finish, sweet to caramel and slightly spicy, spicy
- A fine Standard-Dram!
