Old gold
Nose

Recht süße und angenehme erste Nase, tropische Früchte stechen deutlich hervor, definitiv nicht die klassische Apfel-Birne-Nase, hier kommen Mango, Passionsfrucht, Avocado, Ananas, etwas Toffee und sogar Kokos sind im Hintergrund wahrnehmbar, cremig-leicht  

Taste

Süß und würzig, leicht pfeffrig, ölig, Avocado, Nussaromen, reife Trauben, Vanille, Panna cotta, aromatische Eichenwürze ohne prägnante Bitterkeit 

Finish

Mittellang

Comments

Ein exotisch-fruchtiger Single Malt wie ich bisher noch nicht im Glas hatte. Wer die Rosinen-Rum-Schokolade sucht oder eben die klassischen Rumaromen im Whisky finden möchte wird hier nicht fündig. Es ist ein weicher, cremiger und vollmundiger Balvenie. Die aromatische Würze bildet einen idealen Kontrapunkt zu den exotischen Früchten und schafft so eine harmonische Balance und Ausgewogenheit. Absolut empfehlenswert - 08.04.2017

Nose

Oak with caramel, mixed fruits, vanilla. With 5 minutes, vanilla and darker rum, and an earthy note (dunnage).

Taste

Oak, soft fruit, vanilla, and the dark rum.

Pleasant earthiness with baking spices.
Finish

Soft fruits and caramel.

Comments

The use of dunnage warehousing has added a pleasant note in both the smell and taste. There seems to be a bit of batch variation.My first dram of this, a year ago, was musty and unpleasantly bitter. My latest was very pleasant and enjoyable.

Nose

Zitrusfrüchte, Limette, Zitrone, Orange, Honig, Vanille und Karamell, dahinter eine Nussnote, Mandeln und auch Rosinen

Taste

Wieder Zitrusfrüchte, jedoch weniger sauer und frisch als in der Nase, Malz, und auch wieder Nüsse

Finish

Leichte Eiche, mindestens mittellang, süß und nur ganz leicht bitter

Comments

Ein schöner Whisky, einfach zu genießen und doch auch mit eigenständigem Charakter. Alle Komponenten passen harmonisch zusammen. Ich bin positiv überrascht.

Nose:
Sweet with some honey and pollen. Overall there is a toffee sweetness on the nose

Taste:
Easy arrival, sweet, again honey. Touch of malted barley, and a small splash of orange juice. 

Body:
Creamy and easy going.

Finish:
Medium length. There is again a sweet toffee finish, hint of the wood in a bitter note. At last you will get the rum from the finishing.

Price:
It's getting a bit steep nowadays. Around €50,- should be fair.

Presentation:
Good, shame they put caramel in it and not bottle @46%.

Comments:
It is a very good 'daily dram'. Yet prices are creeping up. I won't pay more than €50,- for a bottle of these.

Nose

Somehow reminds me of chipolata pudding. Fruity (pineapple,orange) ,vanilla, but also some elderflower syrup and fresh celery.


Taste

Pretty sweet with limoncello white chocolate, pineapple sweets and vanilla cream. Also some green banana's.


Finish

A bit thin: vanilla sugar, aplle juice, rose water, garden herbs, white pepper en quite oaky.


Comments

Didn't liked it at first, way too sweet (the rhum casks speaking?). Still, it has more to offer, but these aroma's are quite shy.

Hmm, mir viel zu wenig los bei diesem Malt. Bisschen tropische Früchte und Kokos in der Nase, bisschen Vanille, Birne, Kokos(Nuss) und etwas Fasswürze im Mund... eher enttäuschend
