    • Nose
      Shoepolish/oily smell at the beginnning. Red wine. Red fruit, Little bit sour like citrus later. Nose gets better the longer you wait. Sweetness from honey.

      Red fruit, sweet. Honey. Sweetness. Cinnamon a little bit spicy.
    • Finish
      Finish is long and spicy. I really like the amount of tastes that develop during the finish. Its really pleasant.

    A kneiter!

    The first time I tasted this was during the whisky festival in Wageningen, from Woudenberg Dranken. The tears shot my buddy's eyes, after one sip: "that would not happen to me!", But nothing was less true. After 10x sniffing on my glass, the tears also jumped over my eyelids after my first nip (not my cheeks!). Now that my bottle is almost empty, only my tongue is still crooked. I have to get used to it. A nice rammer.

    ;-)

    This Edradour is another very tasty Whisky from "Van Wees" in "The Ultimate" series. This cask strength is a real enjoyer and stays in the mouth for a long time. As with my other reviews, I leave the smell, the taste and the recognisability of ingredients, to the other person's opinion. After all, it is a different experience for each of us. Cheers!

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Heavy sherry notes. This is clearly a big sherry hit on the nose. There is not much more to be found either.
    So there are the classic red dried fruit notes, some chocolate and a bit of leather in the nose

    Taste:
    Heavy full on sherry hit, it needs quite a bit of water to tame this beast. Initially there is a load of sherry notes, a tad sour note but not that much more. With water: It gets less rough and more sweet red fuit tastes.

    Body:
    Round and creamy

    Finish:
    Long. Heavy on the sherry, tad dry. These sherry notes keep on coming and going in the finish for minutes. Quite well.

    Price:
    Don't know this was a given sample

    Presentation:
