Auburn
Nose

Typische traubige Sauternes-Note, allerdings drückt der Alkohol zu sehr. Da ist Wasser nötig. 

Mit Wasser (ca. 50%): die Trauben bekommen Kraft und es kommt viel Honig dazu, das Schnuppern macht so mehr Spaß EDIT: Später kamen jetzt noch Kelloggs Frosties bzw Cornflakes durch, geröstetes Malz könnte man es auch nennen  
Taste

Süße traubige Eiche. Sehr cremig. Die Fassstärke ist aber zu viel in meinen Augen.

Mit Wasser: cremig ohne Ende, die Trauben und der Honig sind wieder da, etwas anderes kommt mir aber auch nicht in den Sinn
Finish

Sehr angenehm. Leichte Eiche. Die Cremigkeit bleibt. 

Mit Wasser: etwas kürzer natürlich, aber viel fruchtiger, etwas Eiche, schmatzig, auch hier hab ich irgendwann das geröstete Malz durch
Comments

Schwimmt gut. Etwas eindimensional. Was er kann, kann er aber gut.

Color

Nose

Rich wood with varnish. Caramel. Carrots. Glue. Salt. Salty toffee. With water some sulphur

Taste

Very spicy. White grape juice concentrate. Dry wine tannins.

Finish

Long. Sweet wine and sweet fruits. Spicy, mainly woodspice but a hint of pepper. Dry wood.

Comments

Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel evening.

Sauternes matured whisky is not my favourite in general. But this wasn’t as cloyingly sweet as some Sauternes matured whiskies, but still very winey in character. Interestingly a sulphury note popped up which I wasn’t expecting but apparently can be a characteristic of the wine.
