Color
Amontillad
Nose

Quite refined, understated, malt but quite mellow, spice, oak, wood, lemon washing up liquid( in a good way!), hints of brazil nuts, raisins, subtle fruity notes start to come through, toffee, over time it gets very malty.

With water - malt dissipates quite a lot.
Taste

Malt, some smoke, some bitter wood notes, wood spice, slightly bitter honey, mouthfeel is a little weak. Like the nose, it gets very malty over time.

With water - stronger oak and wood spice.
Finish

Medium, spice, bitter oak, over stewed tea, smoke asserts itslef a little more at the finish.

With water - tea comes through a little more, some white wine, cardboard.
Comments

A decent blend but very over-priced for what you get.

Nose

Im Gegensatz zu dem Blacklabel wesentlich harmonischer in der Nase mit Rauch, Sherry, Nüssen und Rosinen.

Taste

Milder, malzig-süßer Geschmack mit schöner Würze, Bitterschokolade, leichter Eichigkeit und angenehmen Torfrauch.

Finish

Lang anhaltender Abgang mit Eichennoten, Malz und etwas Rauch.

Comments

Schon wesentlich besser und ausgereifter als die Red -und Blacklabel. Diesen sollte man sogar pur genießen. Dennoch weit entfernt von toll gereiften Single Malts.
