- The first nose convinced me, but the more I tried it, the less I liked it.
- On the nose, malty freshness, vanilla, yellow fruits and a trace of smoke, all spicy!
malt, fresh, yellow-orange fruit, spices in number and a return of vanilla!
a little wood as dry.
alcohol plus strong spices plus astringency, which remove all the attraction of the nose concerning the fruits.
we do not feel much.
Fresh and fruity with a great oak finish.
Fresh and fruity with sweet and sour apples, lime and a little honey.
Malty, ever stronger spiciness, oak and again the apples.
First fruity, then a strong flavor. Is getting drier, the oak remains on the palate.
At first cautious, light oak, spiciness, sherry, malt, alcohol well integrated.
Sherry, strong oak and spice, even reminiscent of light smokiness. Roasted coffee beans, liquorice, a little vanilla,
Especially spice, oak, a little bitter, coffee, dry
All in all a positive surprise. Much better than expected. The bottle is from 2012 and the cork was not 100% leakproof according to the fill level. So he was breathing well. It does him good :) Overall, however, somewhat one-dimensional due to the consistently dominant oak.
- Blind tasting.
Color: Chestnut / Oloroso sherry. Nice, fine smoke in the nose. But what kind? In addition, neat red fruits. Cherries and strawberries. I can not classify the smoke, maybe it's a port finish, the Ardmore? However, only on the basis of red fruits ... soft in the mouth, then dry, gentle smoke, vanilla, oranges, strawberries. Medium-length finish. Milk coffee, faint smoke, musty tree bark.
I really like MacDonald well, tasty, not very deep, but intense. He saw at least one sherry barrel from the inside. Maybe also Port. However, I have no idea what distillery I should pack the good, if it is not the Ardmore Port Wood.
Sweet, floral, non-spirituous. Perfumery shades (rose water). Lollipops. Fresh vegetables (sweet carrots, beets). Watercolor paint. 21
Slightly hot. Medium, moderately sweet. At the same time, slightly salty. Plain. 19
From short to medium, pleasant, warming, but also simple. 20
Balance: 20. Tidy, tasty, without any unpleasant notes, although uncomplicated. Reminds of a good blend. Although someone, perhaps, will call it faceless.
Nez: Orange. Épices. Frais. Se montre par moment un peu céréalier. Orange sanguine. Une goutte d'eau le rend carrément costal, avec du gingembre.
Bouche: Léger en bouche, doux. Le sherry est bien présent et tout à fait crémeux. Ensuite vient un peu de bois. Se poursuit sur des notes d'orange. Ne décolle pas vraiment, montre sa jeunesse. Pointe d'amande vanillée, que fait encore re-sortir l'eau.
Finale: Légère sécheresse. Reste doux. Moyenne longueur. Un whisky sans réel défaut, mais qui reste dans les limites d'un jeune finish. L'eau rend peut-être la finale plus sèche et un peu cartonneuse.
- The aroma is a sweet with fruits, salt, oak and spicy notes. The palate is a sweet and spicy with fruits notes. The finish is a middle, sweet, spicy and dusty. It’s a good whisky for daily drinking.
