Nose

Zuerst kommt nur ein Schwall Alkohol.

Dann wenn sich die Nase an diesen gewöhnt hat, Vanille, Süße und Eichennoten. Im Hintergrund etwas Marzipan, etwas Orange und Nugat. Das ganze wird von etwas Menthol begleitet.
Taste

Der Alkohol ist deutlich spürbar. Zuerst leichte Süße und Orange, dann folgt eine noch angenehme Würze. Sehr ölig, Kaffeenoten, Ahornsirp (aber nicht ganz so süß), weißer Pfeffer. Ein Hauch dunkle Johannisbeeren.

Finish

Die Würze verbleibt lange und bildet Bitterschokolade-Noten.

Comments

Deutlich komplexer als der Standard 12y. Hier kann man sehen, was die Alkoholstärke ausmachen kann.

Wow, der springt in die Nase - kräftige, trockene, staubige Eichennoten, Minzfrische!
Dann (Tropfen Wasser) schwarze Beeren, Kakao, würzige Schärfe, Paranuss.

Taste

(mehr Wasser, weil ganz schön heftig)
Kakao, intensiv, fett, ölig! Dunkel-bittersüß (Melasse, Ahornsirup, Zuckerrübensirup), ordentlich Pfeffer, Tabak, altes Leder

Finish

Laaang... Kakao und Pfeffer

Comments

Toll für 57€. Ich hätte zwar gerne den 18er für ~60€ wieder, aber der hier entschädigt fast... ;-)
