Nose

Fresh, truck loads of tropical fruits, honey comb, sweet acidity galore, whiffs of oak wood, spices, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, more on apples etc. - fantastic!

Taste

Oily, fruity cake, lots of spices, pepper, cinnamon, apple juice, good sweetness, oak wood and just a wee hint of vanilla in the background - excellent!

Finish

Medium long and warm, more fruity, not drying at all, more fine spices in the background

Comments

That must have been a great cask indeed - one of the best Bourbon barrels - reminds me on some very old Bowmores and most recently it compares well with the great Speysiders from 1973. For me also just one point below the famous cask MoS 12044 even so it is hard to compare. Great stuff!

Nose

Wow, was für ein Obstsalat, schon beim Einschenken, Tropfen von der Sampleflasche geleckt, in 30cm Abstand vom Glas geschnüffelt... ein Traum! (Apfel- und Birnenkompott, Melone, Ananas, Stachelbeere, Kiwi, unreife Banane... man möchte nicht aufhören) Dazu als Kontrast im Hintergrund eine wachsige Note, Bohnerwachs, Lederpolitur, leicht trocken holzig - toll.

Taste

auch hier nochmal der ganze Obstsalat (s.o.), dazu gesellen sich Limette, Grapefruit und Maracuja, dann süßer und trockener, Kakao, Zimt, Muskat, Leder, etwas Pfeffer, schmeckt fast zu gut zum Runterschlucken

Finish

lang, elegant, nicht penetrant, Limette, Trinkkakaopulver, Leder, Kräuterbonbon

Comments

Absoluter Spitzenwhisky, würde ich nach ca. 1700 verkosteten zu den Top 10 zählen, wenn nicht gar zu den Top 5, und das, obwohl oder gar weil er nicht vom Superduper-Sherry- oder -Portfass geküsst und überschlabbert wurde, das Bourbonfass hat einfach in den 30+ Jahren was ganz Einmaliges, Besonderes draus gemacht.

Nose

A warm fruit basket with apricot, peach and mango, but also lots of citrus (mandarin). Some wax and furnitire polish as well, with some oakiness (saw dust). This one really shows its age. In a good way :)

Taste

Really fruity again, with pink grapefruit taking center stage, but also lychees, oranges, apricots and lemon peel. The palate is pretty oily and creamy. It shows some aniseed, as well as freshly polished leather. Lovely, lovely stuff.

Finish

Warming. Slightly dry and medium in length. Fruity still, but softer now.

Comments

What's not to like here? This has matured for such a long time, and it really does show its age, but it also very vibrant and there's not too much oak. A high point for sure.

Nose

Very fruity start: peaches, raisins, apple

Taste

Sour but sweet sour first like these sour apple shots but very positive then sweet brown sugar and caramel

Finish

a lot herbs a bit like Muscatel, very special and excellent long!

Comments

Good but not very good which is a bit disappointing looking at the price of the bottle. Maybe it is due to the fact that I had the excellent Laphroaig 21 yesterday in my glas :)

Fresh apricots, fresh slight sour apples, caramel, bright milk chocolate, 'Joghurette' (very prominent!), ripe vanilla (thick feeling), spiciness from the barrel, some smoked ham,very nice wood, thick sweet-sour vegetable broth, leather, some mocha, apple biscuits (out of the pan), caramel biscuits, extinguished wood fire, melted butter, 'Himmel und Hölle', banana.

Taste

Lemon, tingly (very tingly all the time!), bright fruits, leather, radicchio, apple jam, citrus peal, apples, pears, coffee, old books, raw bacon, some grilled, wood, spiciness, quince jelly bread, charred wood, cocoa powder, grapes.

Finish

Fruit brandies, wood (also charred), oily-dusty, herbs, leather, cocoa powder, citrus, dry, aftertaste of bright jams (also sweet).

Comments

For me as a Sherry matured Whisky lover this dram earns my great respect! Very well done. Especially the nose has much to offer: very interwoven complexity, deep space and roundness …

A pity that the taste becomes from the second sip on a bit 'boring' (if you understand what I mean …) - but I think that could be MY problem … :-)
