    Hm, the last time I had so many apples, it was an Aberlour. Except for parts of the nose and the pepper a rather uncomplicated candidate. Is in itself consistent, but rather not my thing. Anyway, he is very sweet, every sip makes him better ... Notes from a blind tasting. The alcohol is excellently integrated and is also well covered by the flavors, I would have thought it much weaker.
    • Nose
      Sherry with yellow fruit note, caramel and some sweat. Overall, initially a bit restrained. After a short time, raisins, grass and herbs are added. After some time, apples, ripe and overripe. It takes him a while to settle down, but then everything mentioned above is interwoven into an overall picture and looks harmonious, still focusing on apples, looks rather dry overall. Heats up much herbaceous and the apples are now clearly fermented, the raisins also slightly stronger ..
    • Taste
      Sweet, lots of raisins and also here later ripe apples, in addition a good portion of white pepper right at the beginning with moderate onset, which concerns the alcohol. The mouthfeel is pleasantly oily, to the rear it dries clearly, with a good dose of herbs. These cover it then also that the alcohol shows itself backwards still with an ethereal note.
    • Finish
      In the finish, it then dries completely, the sweetness is soon gone, but the herbs do not stay too long. At the end there is a mixture of potato starch and apple greek. Overall, the finish is rather short and it does not last long.

    This is a great 20yo wine cask finished single cask scotch for a reasonable price!

      Punchy, sweet, oily, liquorice, toffee, chocolate, cinnamon, cloves, spicy, peppery

      Long and warm, gets hotter in the end

    • Nose
      Beautiful, full, dark fruit, sweet perfume, honey, caramel, milk chocolate, very yummy.
    • Taste
      tingling on the tongue, at first an alcoholic note, much spicier than in the nose.
    • Finish
      very strong, dominated by alcohol, then tasty, long and spicy. Later warming with a load of nuts and oak.

    A really interesting malt. A finish that you do not have in your glass every day. I like it a lot better with water. But you have to stand up to neat sweet malts, then you are exactly right
    • Nose
      extremely sweet with sweet cherries; Sugar and turnips; in addition bright honey; behind it but also a light spiciness with pepper and oak; the sweet wine is to be perceived in the background; a slight note of glue is there, but it goes well with the other flavors; the alcohol is noticeable it becomes even sweeter with water; the sweetness, however, is now more artificial
    • Taste
      sweet and bitter at the same time; again sweet cherries with honey; spicy oak; with plums and raisins; it becomes spicy with water with oak, pepper and nutmeg; this is joined by red fruits again
    • Finish
      medium; very spicy on the finish; again plums and cherries; getting slightly dry; on the palate, it remains fruity-sticky and beautifully sweet; the oak presses again at the end; with water the finish is spicy and sweet; In addition, pepper comes with overripe, red fruits; now the sweet wine from the nose is back
