Tom na Gruagaich
Expert Senior Tom na Gruagaich Tasting note
11 Jun 2017 10:05 pm
Tom na Gruagaich gave this whisky 80 points
Color
Amber
Nose

Sherry, etwas Toffee, butterscotch, Karamell, eine kleine florale Note, relativ weich und rund.

Taste

erstaunlich kräftig, fast ein wenig alkoholisch, dann zuerst sehr süß, zuckrig, Karamell, später ein wenig herbere Noten, Walnüsse

Finish

eine deutliche süße im Hintergrund, davor zuerst noch ein paar herbe Eichennoten, etwas florales nochmal, dann wird der Whisky süßlicher am Ende, mit ein klein wenig Seife.

Comments

ja, kann man trinken. Leckerer Speyside All-Day-Dram, dem aber irgendwie ein wenig die Tiefe fehlt.

Expert Senior irrerelevant Tasting note

irrerelevant gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Pale straw
Nose

Heu, (Anklänge von Rauch?), mineralisch, typisch "Speyside", Floral, deutlich Apfel/Birne, helles Karamell, etwas Vanille, Getreide, leicht parfümiert, weinig, nussig, ein wenig Bitterkeit von Walnüssen

Taste

etwas säuerlich, trockener, heller und fruchtiger Sherry, Cidre, Champagner, trockene Eiche, Capri-Eisstiel, etwas jugendlich, trotzdem "voll", hat Substanz, schönes Mundgefühl, weich, cremig und trotzdem lebendig, Traubenkernöl, Maracuja

Finish

wird trockener und flacht dann ab

Comments

die Alkoholstärke von 43% passt gut, braucht etwas Zeit an der Luft, etwas rauh, viel Brennereicharakter, die Ecken und Kanten stehen Macallan mMn aber sehr gut

Hemdl
Connoisseur Hemdl Tasting note

Hemdl gave this whisky 85 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Deutliche Sherry-Note, allerdings nicht so schwer und vollmundig wie beispielsweise bei Glenfarclas. Dazu Vanille, unreife Früchte

Taste

Süßer Sherry, der sich angenehm und leicht im Mundraum ausbreitet. Hinzu kommen grüne Äpfel und florale Noten, Zitrusnoten. Sehr mild und ölig.

Finish

Milder, fast zu kurzer Abgang. Die Süße macht sich noch einmal breit. Keine alkoholische Schärfe, keine Bitterkeit. 

Comments

Typischer Speysider, der für sein junges Alter sehr ausgewogen daherkommt. Etwas zu kurz und weich im Abgang, davon abgesehen ein rundum gelungener Whisky.
Für Fans von leichten Sherry-Einflüssen und floralen Noten absolut empfehlenswert. Erstklassiges Preis-/Leitsungsverhältnis.
