Nose

Mit Wasser: eine ledrige und holzige Nase, kandiert mit Brombeeren, schwarzen Johannisbeeren und Heidelbeeren. Marzipanbrot, Milchkaffee, Vanille. Sehr vielversprechend.

Taste

Auch verdünnt noch mit einem kräftigen Antritt. Beginnend mit Leder und Tabak schwenkt er schnell um auf getrocknete Früchte (Pflaumen). Für eine solch junge Abfüllung hat er eine kräftige Holznote. Leicht bitter, aber nicht unangenehm. Kakao, Schokolade, geröstete Kaffeebohnen.

Finish

Lang, mit Beerensüße und Schokolade.

Comments

Kann mit und ohne Wasser getrunken werden, wobei das Geschmacksspektrum mit Wasser wesentlich vielfältiger ist. Sehr schön.

Nose

trocken, holzig, gebrannter Zucker, Früchtebrot, Trockenfrüchte, Mandeln, Nuss... mit viel Wasser süßer, Orangenmarmelade, Karamell, Marzipan

Taste

kräftig, bitter-süß-würzig, Zartbitterschokolade, Kaffee, Trockenfrüchte... Leder, Tabak, altes Holz... verträgt 'ne Menge Wasser, ohne zu schwächeln

Finish

lang, trocken, Eiche, Bitterschokolade

Comments

Wenn ich bunkern würde, wäre das ein Kandidat gewesen, toller Whisky aus einer gerne übersehenen Brennerei, keine Ahnung, warum der so lange durchgehalten hat. Für den Ausgabepreis war er ein Schnäppchen, 80€ wären bei der aktuellen Marktlage immer noch OK, aber jetzt ist der Zug abgefahren, aber es waren ja 8 Jahre Zeit.
