  1. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nope. We will not become friends. He is even too sprittig even with water. I would have typed here rather on a very young, non-round malt and not on 25 years. Too bad, so chrome remains in my second attempt a bottler, who does not suit me.
    • Nose
      The nose starts very restrained. There are flavors such as mint chocolate and raisins. The alcohol is there, but not too intrusive. A little honey is still there and a fresh note, such as eucalyptus or peppermint. Not as complex as I suspected after 25 years in the barrel. With a little time, pepper and nutmeg will come. With water comes a hint of sherry.
    • Taste
      The taste is then full-bodied. Now, however, comes through the alcohol. The grade is already very sprittig. No, he's screaming for water. With water then almost too lax at the beginning. But then the alcohol comes back at a stroke, as if you have not diluted at all. Very nutty. There are coffee and cocoa.
    • Finish
      Without water, the finish is a bit too alcoholic for me. Although I can taste dark spices, oak and chocolate, but the alcohol is too dominant for me. So pure water and it comes roasted almonds. The chocolate gets stronger. Then follows a very intense coffee aroma.
