D. Volkov
Member Junior D. Volkov Tasting note
14 Mar 2018 8:33 am
D. Volkov gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Финики, дыня, херес, мармелад, карамель, ваниль

Taste

Слабее чем аромат, орехи, терпкость, вишнёвая косточка, херес, гранат, деревяшка, чуть передублен

Finish

Вяжущая дубовая горечь

Comments

В целом очень неплохо. Очень сильно в аромате проявляется именно дыня. Но вкус явно отстаёт

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Wirkt reif und betont fruchtig nach Kirschen, Pfirsich, Aprikose und getrockneter Mango; später auch Orangen. Hefeteig, Vanile und klebrige Malzigkeit sowie vollreife Banane, Mandelmilch und Heidehonig. Leichte florale Reflexe. Mit der Zeit auch Bananenbrot mit Johannisbeergelee sowie Minze.

Taste

Sehr leicht und beinahe dünn. Leicht würziger Antritt von Vanille, Zimt und Pfeffer, Kakao, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte und Minze.

Finish

Kurz, Kirschwasser und Kakao.

Color
Mahogany
Nose

В аромате заметны ноты карамели, изюма, свежего хлеба, дуба и специй.

Taste

Вкус заполнен оттенками миндаля, засахаренных фруктов, апельсина и сухими танинами.

Finish

В финише чувствуются солодовые, ореховые тона, перец, яркая медово-хересная нота и в конце навязчивая, дубовая, вяжущая горечь.

Comments

Вывод: ровный, честный, незамысловатый, но довольно приятный виски. На мой взгляд, он чересчур сухой и немного передубленный в послевкусии. Несомненно, этому релизу я предпочту Aberlour 12 yo Sherry Cask.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Medium impact on the nose with some citrus (orange peel), roasted flavors (caramel) and a bit of spice (hints of vanilla).

Nose score = 20/25

Taste

Medium bodied, smooth sweet attack (dried fruits like raisins), roasted flavors (toffee/fudge, some nuts). Not overly complex but a bit more going on then the 12yo.

Taste score = 20/25

Finish

Medium long with some nice dynamics. Caramel, ending with some spice (pepper) and some wood (oak).

Taste score = 19/25

Comments

Consistency in nose and taste and some interesting dynamics going on. But complexity is still not that high but again it's only a 15 yo still. Sherry is there in the raisins.

Balance score = 23/25

Total score = 81 pts
