- Great Nose & Taste of a well balanced dram. Unfortunately the finish is very disappointing.
- Amazingly dirty, had initially typed clearly on Sherry, but since I'm no longer convinced of. What followed in the mouth, and warmed up the nose already suggests a middle-aged 1st-Fill Bourbon ripened malt. Very solid and interesting, good in balance. Only the somewhat disappointing finish prevents a better rating.
Notes from a blind tasting.
Pretty dirty malty sherry profile at the beginning, intense and sweaty. Vanilla and anise, a whole herb meadow, salty and dirty, but also with strong sweetness, which, however, remains subtle. Scary tight, behind all the sweat is thick, yellow fruit compote, thick in the sense of tough, it looks as if it was too sluggish to really come forward, but is sweet and caramel. Heat transforms the picture completely, now I see no sherry at all, instead freshly cut apples, rich caramel, creamy, creamy with slightly sour overtones, peaches and creaminess again and again. The dirty, sweaty touch remains.
Slightly tingling start with a lot of apples on the tongue, there is again this sweaty, dirty, light acidity, rich caramel to the rear, a bit metallic, but not young, oak with barrel acid and tannins, very moderate. No old wall unit. A hint of menthol. The mouthfeel is not too dense, but also not watery.
The finish is unspectacular and is medium in length, the notes simply ebb off and leave an idea of chewed apple gnome on the tongue.
