- See nice whisky with good PLV. Something for fans of rather strong, rich whiskys.
At first a little aniseed, dark berries, cinnamon and lots of fruit, Bourbon aroma is very beautiful, vanilla and dark chocolate, great in the nose
Strong, stone fruit at the beginning, then goes over quickly in strong spicy, a trace of cocoa is audible
Long, now comes through the sweetness promised by the nose, light pepperiness, oak comes to the end always stronger and stays in the mouth for a long time
- Solid, slightly one-dimensional whisky. Very barrel-heavy, for his 46% very intense. Average ex-bourbon.
Reminiscent of a bourbon, lots of vanilla and lots of sweetness. Touch of fresh fruits.
Quite dry, intensive start despite "only" 46%. Something oak, while subtly sweet. Overall, one-dimensional.
Short and dry, slightly tingling. Oak becomes a bit more dominant, the sweetness disappears.
- good! surely not everybody´s taste but from time to time I could enjoy it.
immediately after the king car conductor:
rather similar in its fruitiness. basket of tropical fruits. perhaps a bit more vanilla and a bit more oak which makes it a bit deeper. very fresh and mouthwatering. I also like this one.
perhaps the mouthfeel is a bit creamier than the conductor´s and it´s a bit more complex. the fruitiness is a bit more integrated. the bourbon cask influence is a bit more evident.
medium to long
- Delicious, exotic fruity. Weak point: sharpness on the palate.
- On the nose, the almond, the core, the vanilla and the characteristic glue of the bourbon finish!
On the palate, vanilla, exotic fruits, a bit of banana, the acidulous sweetness, the sweet spices tending towards cinnamon, then the malt comes back in force, with the glue again!
In the finish, oaky and vanilla, a little honeyed.
An austere dram, more bourbon than whisky, with a final too marked!
