Connoisseur hs305 Review note

hs305 gave this whisky 87 points

[December, 2017]  This review is on batch L230513 (hence bottled on May 23rd, 2013).  I bought this bottle for 79,50 Euro in October, 2014. 

The colour is deep copper and the texture shows medium fast legs and sticky tears.  The nose offers a light sherry and vanilla-toffee profile with hidden fruits and honeys.  Nicely balanced and delicate (and not a single trace of sulphur: What a great cask selection for this batch!).  It arrives smooth and creamy on the palate with no distracting moments (but no significant coating effect either).  The taste is vanilla and sherry sweet with some spices and wooden flavours.  Again very delicate, but a little simple too.  The finish is of medium length and even sweeter than the taste with a minor drying feeling (papers) at the very end.  Water is not needed.

A delicate and easy quaffable dram without much complexity.  One to drink when I am not in the mood of exploring drams...

Geschmacklich sehr herb, Kräuter, Nelken.

In der Nase deutlich besser, geschmacklich etwas hinterher.

Nose

Vanilla, oranges, caramel, apples, raisins, red fruits, some sherry in the back, ginger.

Taste

Spicy sherry oranges, caramel, apples, some honey, pepper and ginger, chocolate in the back.

Finish

Medium to long. Oak and sweet pepper, ginger. Getting a bit dry.

Comments
Great casks but not to much sherry. With water even more fruits. Quite an expression for 40% vol.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Těžší, laková, s hořkou silnou čokoládou, hodně těžkého dřeva, maličko ředidlová, nasládlá, pak smůla jehličnanů, trocha mentolu, větrovost a mírně polévkové koření. (85 b)

Taste

Extrémně jemná a uhlazená, zajímavý kontrast k vůni. Mléčná čokoláda, mléčné karamelky, Toffifee bonbóny. (85 b)

 

Finish

Lehký, jemný.

Comments

Ochutnána na společné akci s Duthoronem a jeho kamarádem Pedrem. Přijde mi lepší a zajímavější než Glengoyne 15 yo Distiller's Gold, kterou mám doma.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Rather mild sherry cask influence with oranges, peaches, raisins, vanilla, creme brulee, a handful of pepper and cinnamon. Alcohol is well integrated.

Taste

Soft, rounded, but rather thin at 40%. White sugar, cherries, grapes, honey. Not overly complex, but perfectly drinkable.

Finish

Quite short, sweet with a hint of pepper and ginger.

Comments

Compared to a few single cask offerings and this one is not too distinctive.
