- nice round, in cask strength would be more teasing out
Cereals, sherry, fresh bread, cotton candy, Toblerone, caramelized sugar, a little plum, grape juice
Vanilla, rum aroma for baking, very creamy
Mid-length and sherry-stressed
- a great, quite wild Sherrymalt.
Toffee, fruits, smells a little younger again, sherry in the background, becoming more present over time. Interestingly, also cereals. These toffee and sherry noses are always delicious.
clear sherry now, slightly vinous, astringent, slight sulfur, but all right.
Toffee, milk chocolate, some menthol from the oak and some raisins.
- Very good malt, but I miss something.
Sherry. Raisins. Grape nut chocolate. Plum compote with cinnamon. The oak also tickles from time to time.
Sherry. Pretty sweet at first. Caramel and honey. Then rum raisins. Now some citrus fruit. Immediately followed by oak. Chocolate. White coffee.
Forest honey. dried plums. Oak.
- A good Glenlivet, elegant and vibrant
Honey, marzipan, almond, and salt water taffy
Almond, honey, banana and raisins
Smooth and medium long with honey and raisins
- Very nice aroma, very fruity, looks a bit young, but has a very pleasant sherry aroma
As part of a blind tasting tasted.
Sherry, fig, apricot, some alcohol, more dried fruit, very fruity
Sherry, here clear alcohol, also here figs and apricots, the nose is good here again, no tannins, will probably be quite young
Here are a few tannins from the oak, but very weak, the sherry remains
Sherry, dark fruits, chocolate, raisins, coffee
Sweet, fruity, chocolate, coffee, plum
- The drop formation after a drinking strength. Unfortunately, the palate loses and the finish opposite the nose, which is fantastic. Especially the departure is relatively meaningless
Sherry! No alcohol, grapes, raisins, cinnamon, chocolate and ... sherry! Behind it lies a slightly dryness and the spice of the oak. An almost classic nose of a sherry whisky
Gentle start, sherry, but not as intense as in the nose, but again very classic, raisins, chocolate, coffee
The finish shows bittersweet oak, raisins covered in dark chocolate, medium long
