Color
Old gold
Nose

alcooleux et l'aération n'y changera rien. Un peu de fruit, quelques épices dont de la vanille. L'ajout d'eau l'assouplit un peu mais ne développe pas les arômes

Taste

alcooleuse aussi. Asutère, peu de choses, un peu de fruit, un peu de new make

Finish

très longue, légèrement agrumique

Color
Old gold
Nose

Malz, Feigen, Rosinen, ganz leichte Minze, etwas Gummi (aber überhaupt nicht störend), Vanille

Taste

Holz, sanfte Kräuter, Vanille

Finish

Gummi tut sich auf, aber gleichzeitig öffnen sich auch die Fruchtnoten, der Alkohol wärmt das Herz

Comments

nicht komplex, aber ohne Fehler, kann als guter Standardwhisky daherkommen, hat seine Jugend schon beinahe überwunden. Dieser NAS arbeitet auf grundsolidem Level, äussert aber seine Fröhlichkeit nicht nur mit der türkis-farbigen Flasche.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Big impact on the nose, little bit hot. Citrus, pears, figgs/dades, spices (nutmeg, vanilla), wood, some little earthy notes. Whiff of smoke and some leather.

Water seems to close down the nose for some reason.

Taste

Warm smooth attack. Citrus, malty, little bit of cream.

With water the spice and alcohol tones down a bit and some smoky notes comes through more. Better with water.

Finish

Finishing with some spice (pepper), ending in sweetness (honey, melon). Little bit of oaky notes in the end as well. Ending little bit dry. The finish is quite long.

Comments

Interesting and quite complex whisky. Little bit on the hot side without water. Slightly out of balance. Taste was lacking a bit behind the nose.

Score 81-83 points.
