  1. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    With water, the malt opens. The aromas become much more intense. Hot. This is a 1A snuff piece. The taste is really nice and creamy. That's a bank
    • Nose
      Fuck the wall, has a horny, dark and spicy nose. He brings full oak freight. In addition, but also a nice, heavy and dark sweetness. The alcohol is incredibly well integrated. The 60.8% you notice as good as not at all.
    • Taste
      The start is really strong at first, but again super integrated alcohol. Dark spices, sherry and gingerbread. In addition to dried fruit.
    • Finish
      The finish is long with oak, spicy dark fruits and sweetness.

    This is how Sherry Malts enjoy themselves!
    • Nose
      Dark Sherry 'says that, as usual very attractively designed label of this only 68 bottles comprehensive filling from Lutz Reifferscheids popular RRC. Visually not as black as the Balblair 14yo TWE or the Tullibardine 9yo TWC, the SPEYSIDE has a very nice, rich brownish color. It does not have to be an Oloroso, the sherry. Definitely makes a visual impression. I let him rest in the glass a little and allow him 20 minutes to unfold. 24 years in the barrel earn a little time in the glass. The Malt urges to rest. Happily, he is then fortunately fast. Then the nose. The first surprise, a real gentle nasal conch, despite its hefty almost 61% ABV. Nothing stands out. If I had blind, purely from the smell, readily rated as drinking strength with perhaps 46-50% ABV. Very clean. Fruity notes, yellow fruit, a little wet hay, some acetone - but very light, not at all unpleasant or disturbing. A few raisins, no muff, no sulfurous 'filthiness', with elegant sherry scent, as you know it from before. The nose has been very successful.
    • Taste
      Warm and pleasant, otherwise you can hardly put the first impression into words. Oily. Again no stinging, a very slight tingling on the tongue, more is not felt by the perfectly integrated alcohol. If you add water here, just because 60.8% ABV is on the label, IMHO is badly advised. Sipping instead of tipping is here once more the motto. But please, everyone as he likes. The nose is confirmed on the palate. Everything still there. Very round. Orange zest in the background, some spice from the oak, then a sweet treat. Not intrusive or even artificial. The water inevitably runs in your mouth.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, again the yellow fruits and light raisins. The sooner he is gone, the clearer is the spiciness of the oak, the much-loved taste and smell that one inevitably associates with old furniture. I do not consider the malt bitter, it's spicy notes and a few tannins. At the end he gets a little bit dry, which also matches his "old" character.
