Rating: The nose I liked the most compared. Taste and finish fall off easily. All in all a good drinkable and edible whisky. No more and no less. There are 84 points for me. So much for the price-benefit ratio.
Basic flavors: fruits, vanilla, malt, herbs, oak, citrus fruits, tobacco
Description: Immediately bright fruits, vanilla and malt. On the fruit side, especially green apples and pears are noticeable. In addition there are bitter herbs and remarkably many spicy oak. Lemon and lime shells resonate profoundly and with a little imagination there is also a hint of tobacco. The alcohol is well integrated. The overall impression is consistent: well balanced. The nose is similar to that of the 12er, but unequal harmonic and profound.
Basic flavors: citrus fruits, fruits, vanilla, oak, spices, nut, herbs
Description: Slightly creamy, the drop hits the tip of the tongue. Oranges, apricots and vanilla initially provide a sweetish light fruit taste. A little grapefruit gives a subtle counterpoint. Then the oak unfolds its power. A non-cutting blend of pepper and ginger provides a warming and spicy mouthfeel. Subsequently, the wood taste comes increasingly to advantage. Almonds are spreading. Due to the increasingly dry taste, there is something herbaceous, which I can not really grasp and describe. Sherry hardly ever takes place. If, then more towards oranges and bright fruits. Dark dried fruit is certainly not here.
Basic flavors: vanilla, malt, citrus, oak, nut
Description: The finish is medium long and quite dry. Together with some vanilla, malt and a grapefruit-orange combination, the oak sounds especially intense. Lots of wood and almonds again. Over time, the dryness increasingly dresses the entire oral cavity.
