Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Hier ist nun tatsächlich Sherreinfluss erkennbar (was beim 12er nicht der Fall war), dunkle Früchte, Nüsse, Pflaumen und Rosinen, Studentenfutter, etwas Jod, der leichte Grundcharakter von Royal Lochnagar ist aber noch gut zu spüren, Malz, Vanille und im Vordergrund Heu und grüner Apfel,

Taste

Über allem grasige Heunoten, recht mild, würzige Eiche, die etwas Trockenheit mitbringt, dieser steht die Sherrysüße entgegen, die mit eingelgten Rosinen daherkommt, etwas Salz ist auch zu schmecken

Finish

immer salziger, und doch süß bleibend, Traubenschale, mittellang

Comments

Viel vielschichtiger als der 12-Jährige Standardwhisky. ILaut der Brennerei sind 16-25-jährige Whiskys enthalten, was ich nach der Verkostung nicht anzweifele.

Note de dégustation LMDW :

Couleur : Ambre foncé.
Nez : Profond et complexe. Une symphonie d’arômes fruités et florales nous envahit. En arrière-plan, on retrouve des notes intenses de caramel au beurre et une fraîcheur venant équilibrer le bois. Le nez ne cesse d’évoluer et de se développer.
Bouche : Vif et ferme. Il est marqué par le chocolat et le caramel au beurre.
Finale : Longue, gourmande avec ses notes de réglisse et de praline, elle demeure toujours aussi maltée. La rose et la violette apportent une touche à la fois capiteuse et aérienne. Elle est ponctuée par le tabac, les fruits mûrs et les épices douces.
Commentaire LMDW : Floral, fruité & boisé, Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve est un malt élégant et raffiné, un somptueux digestif que l’on dégustera de préférence en soirée. Lancé en 2007 pour commémorer la première visite à la distillerie de la reine Victoria en 1848, chaque bouteille est numérotée. Une cuvée très limitée, il s’agit également d’une excellente idée de cadeau d’exception.

It's well-balanced. Plenty of spices, some brown sugar and dark chocolate and a hint of saltiness. It's leathery, there's oak and it's also surprisingly fresh.

Taste

It has a bit of that meatiness that made Mortlach famous. The whisky is very smooth with notes of oak, malt, red fruit and some spices.

Finish

A lovely hint of barbecue smoke that just doesn't dissapear. There's also some orange and cereal.

Comments

It is complex and balanced, but doesn't blow you away. I would love for this whisky to be bottled at a higher strength, because I think that could make it go from a good whisky to a great whisky.
