Schwerer, süßer Sherry.
Cremig und mild auf der Zunge.
Sehr ausgeglichen. Gut komponiert.
Schöner reifer Gesamteindruck.

couleur ambre clair, nez bien marqué sherry, chocolat, bois vernis, fruits secs, noisettes, un peu de cuir et de tabac le fruité typique de Littlemill reste dans le fond plutôt marqué confiture d’abricot et de mandarine ici. Idem en bouche, assez sèche, vive, alcool bien intégré, mais le sherry masque un peu le fruit. Bonne longueur, finale sur les fruits secs, lses épices, le chocolat. Un très bon sherry, mais pas une fruit bomb.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Erdbeere, Backaromen, Orangeat, leichte Kräuternoten, frisches Malz, später schon mehr Beeren & roter Apfel

Taste

Beeren voll im Mund, Erdbeeren, viel Malz mit etwas Rosmarin, Kirsche, Grapefruit, etwas feuchte/modrige Eiche

Finish

Mittel bis lang, Süße bleibt mit etwas kräutriger Eiche

Comments

Schönes Ding, reicht aber deutlich nicht an den Port Pipe heran!

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Matured oloroso and fruits: raspberry, apricot, banana and blood orange, oak, leather and tobacco

Taste

Sweet start with forest red berries, which go through sour, especially grapefruit, next to coffee, tobacco, rum raisin and chocolate

Finish

Medium long length, sweet, dry, spicy: coffee, leather, tobacco, chocolate and raisin

Comments

The sherry is little bespread the distillery character, but the ratios and the maturation is extremely good!

Color
Tawny
Nose

Voller aromatischer Oloroso Sherry, trocken, dann eine sehr deutliche Kirschnote, dunkel und süß, Kirschwasser, Blaubeeren und Cranberries, Tannennadeln, Rosinen, im Hintergrund eine leicht säuerliche Zitrusnote, würzige Eiche, ein wenig Karamell

Taste

Ein weicher Körper, ein kurzer scharfer Antritt, dann legt sich Sherry und Eiche auf die Zunge, würzig, Schokolade mit hohem Kakaoanteil, ein Hauch Schwefel, die Eiche ist mächtig, herb und süß im Widerstreit, am Ende setzt sich die Eiche durch, Bitterorange, leicht säuerlich. Im zweiten Schluck wird es dann süßer, der Sherry verschafft sich mehr Aufmerksamkeit.

Finish

Wieder viel und sehr dunkle Schokolade, eine Erinnerung an die Kirschen aus dem Geruch kehrt zurück, leicht adstringierend, trocken und leicht bitter, lang, jedoch nicht ganz so intensiv, wie ein Whisky diesen Alters erwarten lässt.

Comments

Trotz des intensiven Sherryaromas bleibt der Geruch vielschichtig. Vom Littlemill ist wenig übrig, aber im Hintergrund scheint die Zitrusfruchtigkeit durch. Der Nase nach ist der Whisky auf den Punkt abgefüllt. Das Fass ist stark, aber noch nicht allherrschend. Im Mund ist das Fass noch stärker. Die Eiche ist mächtig. Das nimmt leider etwas von der Vielschichtigkeit des Geruches. Im zweiten Schluck wird dies besser. Der Abgang ist ausgewogener und angenehm, könnte jedoch noch etwas länger sein. Ein sehr schöner, alter fasslastiger Whisky, der kein Jahr länger hätte im Fass liegen dürfen.
