  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A super drop and meets exactly my taste!
    • Nose
      First, a full load of sherry. Followed by a musty note. Like jumping on an old leather couch. Then comes an interplay of sweet dark fruits and spice. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      Sticks to what the nose promised. I find this taste-change game of sweetness, spice and sherry great. Then the alcohol pushes and it gets a bit spicy in the mouth (pepper? Chili?). The tongue bizzles.
    • Finish
      Medium. Which only disappointed me a bit. But the full mouthfeel persists for a very long time.

    -Blindverkostung-

    Very fresh on the nose, sherry, rather little oak (oh god, I hope I do not have anything to do with his 25s), maybe some nail polish remover - but not even in the negative sense, I like that ...
    The color is very dark, but still I would not rate it that old.

    Strong from my dirty palate, kräutrig, some pepper, also a decent portion of oak, slightly bitter even (hmmm? But about older?), And of course a decent portion of sherry. The whole but also a little bit teen ...
    I would not be surprised if I had not at least to do with sherry finish here!
    The finish is long, yes, it takes a long time ... oak opens up, a bit of cherry maybe, sweet, brown sugar ....

    Brown sugar? Caramel?
    The next sips actually give me caramel ...

    Quite delicious! I'm not a huge fan of sulphur, but this is done quite well, it's tamed and manageable. Great with or without coffee as a after-dinner dram.
    • Nose
      Sulphur but sweet syrupy sulphur. Fruity, red fruits, possibly a bit of orange. Spicy, some cloves perhaps a peppercorn. Hint of golden caramel. A bit of rubber, funky, but in a good way.
      With water: removes some of the sweetness, and brings out some flowers.
    • Taste
      The sulphur strikes first, but then the syrup and spiciness takes over. A wee hint of pepper, some fruits, and caramel. Sweet and spicy.
      Hits right in the middle of the tongue, and then travels backwards.
      With water: tones down the sweetness, and brings out some of the rubber.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The sweet spiciness lingers for a while.
