Goethe
Expert Senior Goethe Tasting note
13 Jun 2017 10:10 pm
Goethe gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry balanced on the arrival. Sherry punch! Dark and red fruits, vanilla, raisins, leather, jam, prunes, chocolate, espresso.

Taste

Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry balanced on the arrival. Sherry punch! Dark and red fruits, vanilla, raisins, leather, jam, prunes, chocolate, espresso, great texture!

Finish

Long. Dark chocolate and fruits, leather, soaked scones way in the back.

Comments

Amazing stuff for a "12 year" old bottling. By checking the bottle code you will realise this can't be just 12 years old. Go for the 2013 and 2014 (June bottlings) versions.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 10/10

Das Leben birgt viele Umwege in sich. Die Kunst besteht darin, dabei die Landschaft zu bewundern.
