    with water: he definitely doesn't need it

    Conclusion: I can not believe that I have a 14 year old whisky with 40% in the glass, it has so much more power and complexity. Great, a real experience, the smoke impact should also be emphasized here, although this could also come from the wood.

      wow, that's old sherry school, rum raisins, caramel, toffee, leather, old wood, maraschino cherry, rose hip, sweetened apple, polish, clove and cardamom, subtle wax notes (OBF)
    • Taste
      89 89
      clear sherry flavor, but also surprisingly smoky, like a smoldering campfire, lots of spices
    • Finish
      91 91
      actually only medium length, sherry, oak and a few spices, chocolate and some smoke here too, but then some aromas remain in the throat for several minutes, after some time grapefruit notes appear on the palate

    Anyway, it's a few years older than he is, nice sherry whisky, a bit too dry to get more, yet great stuff for old age.
    • Nose
      Rumrosines, full caramel, sweet, moist leather, cardamom, camphor, juicy plum, nutmeg, cinnamon and lightly burnt butter
    • Taste
      Nutmeg, rum-raisins, black pepper, drier than in the nose, also slightly bitter oak in between, the moist leather, dark chocolate, nuts, walnut, hazelnut, aniseed, fennel, burnt butter
    • Finish
      Walnut, leather, chocolate chips, medium-long, leather, warming
