    JURA likes it and definitely does it for me with this malt.
    Beautiful interplay of fruit, creaminess, wine and "powerful" nuances.
    I was worried about the low alcohol content, but here it is just right and makes you want more from the "Dun Bheaghan" series
    • Nose
      Here I would have typed, if I had a blind tasting, at the first nose probably on an Irishman. Very light and fresh, which I'm not used to in the form of Scottish colleagues.
      A beautiful floral touch comes first. Fresh cut flowers, similar to the first step in a nursery. Interesting. I like it very much. Something like perfume plays in this nose, but very discreet and pleasant.
      As this potpourri of flowers fades, it becomes more and more creamy and "firmer" in the glass. He evolves from the Irish to the Scotsman.
      Dry hay now plays around the "transformation" and then gradually passes through the wine notes. I was waiting for that. Finally. Madness! Very present and suddenly in the glass.
      Ripe, very sweet pears, dried apricots and oranges pave the way into my nose, which enjoys more and more of the overall game. The creeping process is really great fun here and you almost have the feeling that it really only gradually comes on, as rehearsed. Very beautiful.
      The very present sweetness plays in almost everything and is omnipresent. I like it. You can almost say a "syrupy" nose to it.
      Bright fruits and the syrup are now left. That tells me it's time to try ...
    • Taste
      Who should have 43%? He has power for two. Terrific!
      There are roasted nuts, fresh cut tobacco and coffee. Especially the tobacco note I had never integrated so well balanced and beautiful.
      There is a bitterness that accompanies the creeping oak notes.
      Also, it warms medium long, almost long and that with its 43%. Class!
      After the good calms down, the enormous sweetness comes to light again.
      So also the wine and its "ancestors". Sultanas and fresh figs are wonderful on the tongue and on the palate and leave little room for dried fruit. Fresh, bright fruits in abundance!
    • Finish
      The nose becomes fruity, fresh, slightly salty. Maybe even light maritime notes. Reminds me of a day at the sea.

      At the second sip, the oranges are added. This time a little bit more bitter. More like the orange marmalade, which unfortunately I do not like, but this fits in well.
      Also a very buttery sweetness, which I would like to compare in part with the "MUH-MUH's" (sweets).
