- a really good blend, with a sherry content. Nice balanced, but not boring
Nice nose, there is sherry, nutty, malty, slightly oak, slightly fruity. Nice round.
In the mouth then sweet and quite strong, oak, fruits, a little sherry.
clear sherry notes, a little tobacco, oak, sweet, slightly menthol, the tobacco notes last surprisingly long.
- It's very, very good, for a blend of a completely non-premium price category, it's just great, the flavor and taste are worthy of attention and can compete with much more expensive single ones, of course weak and subtle, but the price / performance ratio is impressive.
Soft, velvety, fresh apples, dried apples, dry black tea, prunes, slightly spirtuzen, wet earth, raw tree, peach, apricot, light dried fruit notes, the fragrance can not be called strong and deep, but still it is complex enough and varied that for a blend of this price category is very unusual.
Smoky, smoked, sweet, a lot of dried fruits - prunes, figs, dried apricots, but mostly prunes, black tea, notes of lapsang dushonga, very soft and rounded, good balance and pitchnost.
Prunes, a little haze, burnt biscuits, dark beer, after taste and aroma very modest and blurry.
- Sweet nose with chocolate. And a slight vegetal touch? In the mouth, reduction too noticeable. We find a chocolate sweetness but with a milky side. Sweet spices. And wet cardboard. Finale weak.
- N- Orange, spicy sherry, soft leather and oily, toasted wood. Mild on nose.
P- Dust of spices and caramel, thin structure and soft on flavours. Much sweet oriented. Basic with subtle smokes.
F- Short-medium, light flaw on becoming spirit-y, spicy with trace of odd vanilla emerge. Somehow, disjointed. — at The Whisky Bar Kuala Lumpur.
- Nose: Fresh but warming. Oak, wood, red fruits. Some nuts. Slight vanilla. Sweet grains, paper envelopes 'gomrand'. No spices.
Taste: Very sweet and easy arrival. Grains show up. Stays sugary sweet, candy like. No spices.
Finish: Finaly some spice, but still a very easy and short finish.
The sherry cask shows up in the sweet red fruit and some nuts. But no spices. a drinking whisky.
