Connoisseur Marko_I Tasting note
17 Jan 2017 9:15 pm
Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Flach. Das soll ein 25er Balvenie sein? Naja, ich muss es glauben, habe die Flasche selbst geteilt.
Weich, gefällig, rund, etwas Karamel, Honig, leicht süßlich-würzig, vielleicht eine Idee Trockenfrüchte - könnte ein süffiger 30€-Blend sein.

Taste

Hier ist zu dem Honig und Karamell ein bisschen mehr Würze (Pfeffer, Eiche), dazu Kakao. Mit viel Phantasie eine leichte bitter-exotische Fruchtnote. Etwas dünn.

Finish

mittellang, Kakao, Pfeffer.

Comments

Schmeckt nicht schlecht, 400€ gehen OK - für 10 Flaschen von dem Zeug. Keine Aromenfülle, nix Besonderes, Interessantes, noch nicht mal "Eleganz" oder sowas, kann man gut trinken, stört nicht. (Der 22er Glenalba-Blend für 25€ riecht und schmeckt aber besser).

Color
Amontillad
Nose

klar die beste Nase der Triple Cask Serie, viel viel reife rote und gelbe Frucht, dazu leichte Blumigkeit. Pfefferminztee mit Zitrone im Hintergrund. Einfach sehr sehr rund, vielleicht ein bischen zu rund.

Taste

Wieder unglaublich voll für 40%, leckere Blutorange mit Schokolade übergossen, Honigmelone, leichte Eichennoten, aber nicht störend.


Finish

lang, fruchtig, trockener

Comments

Richtig lecker, klar der Beste aus der Tripel Cask Reihe, für 120 Euro sollte man den kaufen, aber für 400? Nicht in diesem Leben...

A lovely not over sherried dram, with mellow aroma's and flavors. Quote enjoyable and even triple casks where used, it kept It's distillery character.
