Dieser Malt ist Super, allerdings muß er lange Atmen. Da Sample ist von einer Flasche die schon länger offen ist und das macht ihn sehr complex. Die Eiche ist immer noch sehr present aber viel angenehmer als am Anfang. Das Salzige ist für meinen Geschmack super integriert und alles sehr gut Ausbalanciert. Er hat Karamel und jede Menge Gewürze. Ein leichter Rauch schwebt über allem. Super Geniales Teil. Einige alten Whiskys müssen länger offen sein, da sie Anfangs zu überfrachtet sind. Dann aber werden sie teils richtige Perlen.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Sherry mixed with licorice, light peat, mint and orange peel. Quite entertaining.

Taste

The taste is more salty and unfortunately not as fun as the nose.

Finish

Bitter as a consequence of too much oak influence. 

Comments

Mediocre dram. If the complexity from the nose had continued in the taste/finish, this could have been a killer dram!
