  1. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    If we leave out the price, it is really delicious.
    • Nose
      Smokier than for example the 2001, behind it I find the sweet wine. The smoke fades after some time and suddenly I am standing in a coniferous forest. As rich as the mountain pine oil for the sauna. The alcohol behaves calmly.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first, then it gets off properly spice, the coniferous forest sounds only briefly, but that barrel is clearly to taste.
    • Finish
      I would not define that as long. And he is not too special, a touch of barrel, he's already gone.

    Pretty much info in it for 10 years in the barrel. Other 10 year olds look younger and more unrestrained. The price is unfortunately too high for the offered, nevertheless a great malt.
    • Nose
      Light smoke with fir and Harz.Nadelwald and indeed probably also notes of Jägermeister. In the background light bourbon, in addition a more present, bright Sauternes sweetness. Menthol freshness.
    • Taste
      Sauternes! Warming, long and strong, with light astringency. Light smoke is added with some alcoholic sharpness.
    • Finish
      Medium long, warmed with smoke and a little light sweetness.
