    Young, firm but very tasty.
    • Nose
      Sherry influences, chocolate, leather, strong alcohol but not predominant, spicy, peppery. Best full and rich scent.
    • Taste
      Stinging, intense. Very drinkable despite high Abv. Sweet, honey, peach, chocolate. Oil-like structure, full. Also some earthy tones.
    • Finish
      Warming, pepper, long finish, sweet, honey, chocolate.

  6. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Wow, that is probably. one of the flashiest sherry under 15 years I've ever had, impressive barrel.
    • Nose
      Wow, sherry! Boiled compote, chocolate, whole milk and bitter in between, pepper and nutmeg, just 100% typical Sherrynote executed great and probably. never had so little alcohol piercing at> 60%, surprisingly
    • Taste
      Sherry bomb, without water but already very sharp torrent of aromas, dark figs in fat, licorice, with water beautiful cinnamon sprinkled over berries, chestnuts, all still strong in the mouth with water, but not alcoholic, walnut and sherry syrup
    • Finish
      Endless, ginger, fig, nutmeg, orange peel, warm

    Interesting, interesting, he needs water despite the 64% none, it does not hurt. Whether you prefer the very idiosyncratic taste of pure or the more ordinary profile with water and then take some tin in purchase, is probably a matter of taste. In any case, this is for his seven years a terrific malt, the Brennereicharakter despite the highly active barrel from time to time through. Can you start something with it?
    • Nose
      No alcohol in the nose, that's surprising. Otherwise, he shows mature apples and a decent load of caramel at the beginning. After some life sweat, and sulphured fruits. After another quarter of an hour, the barrel has won. Sherry whisky, heavy, slightly buttery, sweaty, quite interchangeable but good. A touch of sulfur indicates the origin. Still does not heat alcohol in the nose, but some baby porridge and Babybäuerchen. Poured apples and caramel, this is where the distillery comes up against the barrel. With water: Now a bit nutty on the nose, pumpkin hits it, and much more apples. With water and heat the alcohol bites for the first time in the nose, but only once. Warms up the same nose as without water.
    • Taste
      Wow, is the dense, the alcohol is well integrated, only after a few seconds in the mouth it shows up at all, but remains completely manageable. Heavy, very oily mouthfeel. A nutty sweetness with so much salt, that it almost compensates for the sweet impression, spreads in the mouth, in the back it is also clearly herb. It reminds a little of mashed, butter cooked vegetables, mainly carrots, quite positive. Warms up then much sweeter, honey with a dash of apple juice, the harsh notes come earlier, the salt seems to be gone, but now a bit metallic.
    • Finish
      Tender and rather long. At the very end even with a slightly fruity impression, apple rests in the mouth. With water even here now much sweeter and a little shorter.
