Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

heftig Schwefel
für mich noch lecker
aber neutral bewertet dürfte es schon zu viel sein
Schokolade mit Rumrosinen
intensive dichte Noten
eine Spur alkoholisch
nicht vielschichtig aber intensiv

Taste

Im Antritt wieder ganz leicht Alkohol
wie Rumrosinen Schokolade
am Gaumen kommt Alter und Fass gut zur Geltung und mischen sich mit dem Schwefel
ich mag das
aber es ist schon etwas zu viel um wirklich gut zu sein
auch hier wie in der Nase wenige intensive starke Aromen
durchaus lecker

Finish

schwach, leicht alkoholisch

der Whisky klingt einfach aus 
ohne etwas neues oder mehr zu bringen

Comments

ranking 1.Nase und Mund, 2. Abgang

für einen ü 90 hat er zu wenige Aromen und zu wenig Spannung



unforgettable whisky takes you on a journey, gives you new dreams, awakens your forgotten dreams, moves you out of time.....

Nose

Intensives verbranntes Streichholz, diese bestimmte, noch interessante Art von Schwefel (keine faulen Eier), verbranntes Laub, eine gewisse Sherrysüße dazwischen aber ohne Frucht eher, Pilze, Kompott mit etwas Feigen vllt., sehr konzentriert und halbwegs verschlossen wirkend, modriges Heu, nach ewiger Zeit ein wenig Honig und roter Apfel mit Schale weit hinten

Taste

Erstmal weiter die abgekühlten Streichhölzer, schöne Röstaromen von Kastanien und Haselnüssen zusammen mit dem holzigen Schwefel, Gemüsegarten, Pilze, dann der wuchtige, sehr eigene Sherry, Orangenschale, Grapefruit, süßes Malz, Honig mit Thymian und Rosmarin darin, saure Apfelschale nach hinten, etwas Pflaume und Dattel dazwischen

Finish

Apfelschale, trockene, astringierende Eiche, Malz, Kandiszucker, Honig, mittellang

Comments

Wer Schwefel mag, wird den hier mögen, hat sehr schöne abwechlungsreiche Noten, garnicht der 100% "übersherryte" Beerenkompott von sonst, gefällt sehr!

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Sulphur (like boiled eggs).  It takes a while to get past this, but eventually demarara sugar, sweet dates, raisins and plums.  Rich leather, hints of wine gums

Taste

Full body, likely from the sulphur, sweet raisins and preserved plums. 

Finish

medium long, warming.

Comments

The sulphur is over powering.  There are many whiskies for which peat or sulphur add to the body, but this is too much,  I've seen a lot of youtube reviews that don't even comment on the sulphur, I assume the reviewers cannot detect sulphur at all.

Nose

Au nez c'est très fruité, et oui malheureusement si on cherche bien on peut sentir le soufre, l'oeuf bouilli... vraiment dommage.

Taste

wow. Explosion de fruits. Excellent

Finish

Long, chaud, superbe

Comments

Au final un superbe sherry bomb. A plus de 100 Euros je dirais que le nez déçoit franchement, mais au prix auquel on peut le trouver parfois (80) c'est un superbe whisky.

Nose: Big fat Sherry, quite fruity, vanilla, chocolate, walnut, almonds, red raspberries and hints of oak


Taste: Quite some red fruits, chocolate and tobacco, full and creamy. Wouldn't have guessed that this one is at 55,3% avb, it goes really well with this whisky.


Finish: dark bitter chocolate, bit dry, with a nice lingering fruitiness!

Andytka3 gave this whisky 90 points

N- Warm and dried sherry with heavy dose of banana, fig and, prunes. Spicy, resinous and sweaty wood., goes on with butter cookies, square biscuits, follow by dried hawthorn and dried leafs. Highly evolving, but well behaved.


P- Sweet pickled ginger with bird's eye chili, generous offering of matured wood fragrant from the long aging process. Fine old leather. The spiciness get quite fiery and stays.


F- Long, rich in flavours, gentle and velvet on texture, peppery spicy at the back.  A thoroughbred sherry matured. "Exactly As It Should Be" as acclaimed on the label.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
