Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Sofort zeigt sich Eiche, dicht gefolgt von dunklem Waldhonig, dann kommt nasse Erde, nussig, Brombeeren, Walderdbeeren, sehr würzig, Datteln

Taste

Sehr weicher Körper, sanfter, leicht prickelnder Antritt, dann sofort wieder würzige Eiche, trocken, jedoch kaum Bitterkeit, Brombeeren und etwas Johannisbeeren und Cranberries, trotzdem süß

Finish

Steinpilze, Eiche, süß am Gaumen, lang, ganz am Ende Walnüsse und trockener Sherry

Comments

Der Geruch zeigt sehr schön das Alter und die Reife, die lange Reifung hat Spuren hinterlassen. Ich mag solche reifen Whiskys sehr. Der Geschmack passt sich nahtlos an. Auch der Abgang passt gut dazu. So einen intensiven Pilzgeschmack hatte ich noch in keinem Abgang eines Whiskys. Das ist ungewöhnlich und passt sehr gut.

Der Whisky liefert was er verspricht, Reife und Holz. Für mich ist er jedoch keinesfalls überlagert. Als einziges Manko könnte man anführen, dass man den Port nicht wiedererkennt, aber das stört hier in keiner Weise.

Too oaky for me. Normally I like that but this time it was a little dissapointing.

Nose

Spicy, rich oak. Lots of dark fruits. Old leather with a hint of smoke (but really just a hint, you´ve gotta try hard to find it).

Taste

Oak, oak and again some oak. Surprisingly sweet and creamy though. But all in all the oak is a little too dominant and looking for a counterpart.

Finish

Sweet in the beginning, then becoming a little too bitter and dry. Malty and nutty. Ending with some Espresso feeling.

Comments

If you like the taste of rich oak, go for it! For my personal taste this whisky spend a couple of years too long in the cask. However still very enjoyable stuff!
