- Bottle #201 was sold empty on ebay in may 2021
- Very in my taste!
The whole palette of sweet dried fruit (plums, cherries, gooseberries, currants, pears), hazelnuts, the smell of cakes soaked in liqueur.
Very sweet and fruity, but also slightly bitter, raisins, prunes and dark chocolate dominate. Despite the high ABV alcohol does not kill the taste of whisky.
Pleasant long, very sweet and fruity.
- Too bad the mouth is so syrupy. Too much for me. The nose and the final are clearly several notches above.
Gros very fruity sherry: dried fruits (raisins, preuneau, apricot) and macerated fruits (cherry). It's fresh and an alcoholic hair. There are also some nuts and caramel that both become more and more present over time.
Wah! What is it ? Extremely creamy and syrupy, it's more than sweet. Really extreme. Syrup for the throat? Cane sugar, dried figs, fudge caramel, lots of caramel. Wood is more present than nose, spices too.
Very long. Quite intense, very spicy and fresh at the same time. The wood is present and it ends on a slight drought, but very pleasant.
- sergeColour: deep amber. Nose: a drier, less rounded and less fruity version of a
middle-aged sherry monster. I also find more cognac, rancio, walnuts, shoe
polish, aniseed, old armagnac, chocolate cake, cigars… In short, love this. Was
that fast enough? Mouth: a big and sharp sherry monster, full of dried fruits.
More dried fruits than in a fruitcake ;-). No sulphur in this one. Develops on
orange liqueurs, a little tar (no, no sulphur) and drops of Schweppes yet again.
Finish: long, rich, on black raisins and black pepper. Oranges again in the
aftertaste. Zests. A drop of orange blossom water. Comments: what can I say,
this is just excellent. Close to the OB.
- I seem to agree that the nose is the most impressive part.
Lots of aromas fill the air when opening the bottle. A full range of trail mix; so all kinds of nuts and raisins. Lovely dry walnuts, white sweet grapes, dried cranberry. Gets more creamy and chocolate flavoured. Spongecake with a chocolate hazelnut paste.
Warm almonds with grapefruit. Skin of a walnut and cacao. It seems to balance and switch between sweet and bitter. Whipped cream and lime. Spices emerge like cardamon, white peper and ginger. Conserved cherries.
Bittersweet dried fruits, sultanas and chocolate mousse. Full bodied and warming, but less complex in the end.
- I was especially
impressed with the nose. Just under 80 EUR.
Wonderfully sweet and
creamy nose. Cuberdons, yellow raisins, butterscotch and a basket full of nuts.
Milk chocolate. Hint of leather. Baked apples. Make that apfelstrüdel. Rice
pudding? Yes, this is bulls eye!
It is very cream and
nicely warm on the palate, because of the spices. Again, pretty sweet. Stewed
prunes, but also roasted chestnuts that give it a discrete bitter edge. A hint
of rubber, but honey, sherry and pear syrup keep it on the straight path. No
The finish is long
and honeysweet, allowing the spices the final word.
- Real good. Neat best for me, but maybe you like this chili notes water will add to it?
Raisins & nuts. Dark Sherry.
Body: Very creamy, adherent, warming.
Palate: Very Sweet. Stewed figs, dates and chestnut honey with it's sweet, but also bitter notes.
Water will make it a bit smoother, but sharper at the same time. No new notes.
Long. Bitter, but still very sweet and nutty. Some oaky notes.
