  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty whisky, which is a lot of fun, especially when verriechen.
    • Nose
      Heavy sweet sherry. Dark caramel or toffee. Chocolate and raisins. A little wood. Roasted nuts. A touch of leather.
    • Taste
      Gentle start with a fresh, slightly salty sea breeze. But then comes the sherry and puts down everything with heavy sweetness, lots of chocolate and some oak. Very pleasant and caressing.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long. Here the oak shows something of its bitterness. Even the toffee is spicier.

  4. malthead-sven scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    In and of themselves not bad, but loses clearly against the new edition with 46.3% which I had in parallel in the glass, this one is lighter and has significantly less sherry influence than his successor
    • Nose
      grassy and lemony, then comes mild sherry and wood, compared to the new 18er he looks a bit more acidic nose, vanilla, yogurt with apple pieces, somehow a little glue, later even pretzel
    • Taste
      floral-spicy, orange fruit ice lolly, altogether mild with a bit of softwood
    • Finish
      long and clear again sherry, warms mild but quite a long time

      saltiness, spices, rich honey, spirity,

    • Taste
      a bit thin, salty, fruity sweet,
      damp wood, raisins, dried plums, orange peel
