    Round, sweet and well balanced. Very pleasant to the taste and by no means overpowered from the wine cask. A perfect fit.

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Whisky-Connaisseur/550443305109776 I thank the German independent bottler Best Dram for sample and photo.
    • Nose
      Although 26 years of age, this one doesn't need oxygen but is quite
      present on the nose with toffee, caramel and a fruity sweetness,
      followed by pleasant wine and malty flavours. Hints of strawberries,
      ripe plums, roasted toast and dark chocolate combine for a wonderful
      rich nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet and mouth-filling, warm and vibrant. Feels very tingly on the
      tongue. Dried ripe fruit followed by dark chocolate, with the balance
      between the maltiness and the fruit of the wine cask almost perfect.
    • Finish
      Long and warming, with lingering dark chocolate and roasted flavours. Mouth-coating. WITH WATER: Creamy nose, stays sweet on the palate with dark fruits and
      spicy chocolate. Intense tingly feeling on the tongue. Amazing.
