    Aroma : sherry, thick honey, confectionery (muffins, gingerbreads with boiled condensed milk, toffee, bars), dried fruits, skin stuffed with apple jam, a bit of minerality and a slight hint of smoke. The taste is sweet, sherry: an obvious wine note, a lot of confectionery sweets, honey, light bitterness, apples with stones, minerality, wood, coal, a hint of smoke. Aftertaste : wine vomit, sherry, honey, jam, chocolate, leather, wood. Conclusion . Rectilinear sherry monstrous. Slightly hampered by wine tartness in taste, but, in general, very cute. Sweet, confectionary, rich, with a good fortress. Rating 87 (n22t22f22b21).

  14. Sonett scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sherry tones like raisins, dates and figs in combination with a light coastal tone.
    • Taste
      Enters with sherry then turning over to a spicy tone
    • Finish
      fading out in a light oak and bitter almond

    COLOR: deep dark gold

    NOSE: brandy beans, dried fruit, sherry, spice cupboard in the kitchen, Maggi, freshly greased leather couch.

    TASTE: After the first sip, the sherry immediately spreads in the oral cavity.
    Chocolate and cocoa notes follow suit.
    A sweet creaminess then marries with the chocolate, the cocoa and the sherry. Delicious.

    Departure: medium to long. Sherry is also dominant here

    CONCLUSION: Nice barrel selected, Jens.
    Everything done right and clear purchase option from me.

    I tasted this in parallel to the Whisky-Fässle 1990-2013 (50.4%, WhiskyID 41034). 

    Both are very very similar (obviously neighboring casks) and whoever liked the previous one should also like this one. Recommended.
