- Beautiful powerful and very sherrylastiger Malt. Only the clear spicy and the bitter-bitter oak flavors in the finish are a bit dominant. Overall, but a great treat. At the price or under it there are good alternatives for me.
distinct sherry note; Sweet; Dried fruit; Caramel; spices; in the background maritime notes
strong; very spicy (slightly peppery); Sherry; to slightly fruity and tart-sweet (dried fruit); Oak clearly noticeable; maritime character
spicy; distinct oak flavors; dry and slightly bitter-bitter; behind something salty
- Very tasty whisky, which is a lot of fun, especially when verriechen.
Heavy sweet sherry. Dark caramel or toffee. Chocolate and raisins. A little wood. Roasted nuts. A touch of leather.
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.
The finish is medium to long. Here the oak shows something of its bitterness. Even the toffee is spicier.
- a bit thin, but complex and interesting; I would have to try again

- 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
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
floral-spicy, orange fruit ice lolly, altogether mild with a bit of softwood
long and clear again sherry, warms mild but quite a long time
- as with the 12 year old, this is a
nice whisky, even better now that they’ve upped it to 46.3% abv
