Nose

Stroop, siroop aardbij. Hele mooie complexe geuren. Honing, donker fruit met bloesem. Weinig hout invloed

Taste

Zoet, siroop. Complexe ontwikkeling, weinig samentrekkend gevoel 

Finish

Heerlijk, grote smaak explosie. Erg sterk, vers gras, heel natuurlijk. Geen medicinale smaak. Met water erbij nog beter, ongelofelijk hoeveel hier in gaat

Klasse Farbe, dunkel, appetitlich. Er riecht fruchtig, sprittig, rieche Quitte.

Taste

Ein erster kleiner Schluck entpuppt sich als Hammer, kräftiger Antritt, mir treibt es den Speichel in den Mund. Die Note hat jetzt Vanille, wird weicher. Ich gebe einen Tropfen Wasser hinzu, der schöne Duft ist weg, er riecht jetzt eher nach Nelke, wird würziger.

Finish
Comments

Ich bin zwiegespalten, unverdünnt riecht er klasse, ist mir aber zu stark zum Trinken. Verdünnt kann ich ihn trinken, aber der besondere Geschmack bzw Duft ist weg...

Nose

strong alcohol, wich disappears if you let the malt breathe for 30 minutes (adding water was not to my liking), cherry juice, fruity sherry, intense fruit tea, a touch of Vanilla, no trace of bitterness (was is it american oak?)

Taste

super sweet and fruity, you'll find the nose to its full extent, again there's not a lot of oak and although it's NAS I dont find sharpness or youth

Finish

long with those enormous fruity notes, dries just a litte

Comments

this malt is pure fun, amazing

A very fine batch. Lite sweetness (but not too sweet) with 65% chocolate without being too heavy. Nice layers of medium to dark fruit almost no heat on the noise or palate. Very nice and rewarding. Especially in December.

dark chocolate, raisins, figs, plums, nuts and spices. the promise you get from the nose is well kept with the first sip of it. fine finish, long and intense with all the aromas mingling. that is some nice Sherry Whisky!

Très puissant, l'alcool prend aux narines. Après que celles-ci se soient habituées, du sirop de raisin sec, du caramel vanillé, de l'abricot sec, de l'orangette, du cassis, et du tabac bien moelleux.

Taste

Tout aussi en puissance, les 60% ne passent pas inaperçus ! De la pâte d'amande, du caramel brûlé, du raisin noir sec, des épices de Noël, du chocolat noir.

Finish

Comme la bouche est habituée aux 60%, la finale passe quasi toute seule. Du bon gros pain d'épices, le tabac qui refait surface, accompagné de muesli sec.

Comments

Un profil "gros Sherry" ultra classique, bien cohérent et goûteux. Les amateurs du genre apprécieront. Pour ma part, même si effectivement beaucoup de saveurs que j'apprécie sont là, je trouve que l'alcool est trop présent et gâche un peu le plaisir. De ce côté là, une bonne lichette d'eau calme ses ardeurs, mais adoucit aussi fortement les saveurs.

What a nice one! The familiar deep and strong young sherry notes, chocolate, dry date cake, christmas spices: cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg. Takes a lot of water and works wonders with a little highland mist. As soft, round and warm as it gets. Tasted after an amazing tasting of old OB Springbanks from the 70's-80's and this one had nothing to be ashamed of. Excellent!
