- Nose has some nice cake.Mouth: Sour, young. Some oak already, bitterness.
Finish: Dry toung, metalish, young.
Can't recommend it. Tastes like a 40€ bottle.
- Slightly simple and young, but a very rich dram.
Liquid Christmas cake. Red and yellow fruits, vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and butter. Very nice.
Sweet, creamy, milky even, mars bar with tons of sticky caramel and chocolate, some sherry-driven fruits, raisins and dates mostly.
More of the chocolate goodness and some nice spices. Quite long.
- Tasty, surprisingly light, tick too citrusy, almost "sour"
Somewhat closed, mix of dates, citrus, some pastries, rum, raisins
Full but oily, somewhat "dusty", raisins, again citrus in between, red apples, berries, slightly spicy on the back & more subtle oak
Medium-long, dry throat, oak, citrus and apple peel remain, few cranberries in between
- 92€ but less attractive than the 12yo from e.g. Kammer-Kirsch
Not worth its money, more likely 65€... Nevertheless you have a young sherry cask whisky that is easy drinkable.
Ok the young years are smellable as the alcohol is not well implemented and the cask would have needed some more years of maturation. Nevertheless you may get young sherry notes so mandarines, peaches, a bit of apple/pear. Not really bad but some years would have really helped.
Fruity but also quite sour start so you have apple/pear, fermented grapes and some herbs.
The finish is good and semi-long and gives this dram a nice finish.
- LMDW tasting note
Color: bronze with copper highlights. Nose: ample, lively. First, Havana notes literally burst out of the glass. It evolves on precious wood, wax and varnish before oscillating between heady flowers (honeysuckle), exotic fruits (passion fruit) and spices (cinnamon, saffron). A classicism of all beauty. Palate: clean, precise. His attack is striking. Candied citrus fruits provide a frantic tempo. The mid-palate is a little dry and reveals notes of toffee, nutmeg and heady flowers (mimosa). As it goes, it becomes exotic (kiwi, litchi) and new spices come into play (cardamom, caraway, coriander). It gives a very pleasant sensation of freshness. Final: long, powerful. The toffee has turned into a liquorice stick. Roasted nuts and dates have appeared. The volutes of Havana pass through the tasting area before ripe fruits (pear, Mirabelle plum) come to beautify the finish. The retro-olfaction has a very fine grain, almost sandy. The empty glass faithfully reproduces the entire aromatic palette. The circle is complete.
