Color
Deep copper
Nose

De neus heeft een aards karakter: hout, noten en  tabak. Af en toe neigt 't naar turf! Maar ook zoet fruit, vanille, karamel.

Taste

Ook de smaak is aards, bitter, maar niet onaangenaam. Ondanks de bittere smaak toch een zachte body met een rijk karakter.

Finish

Een mooie romige medium tot lange finish.

Comments

Erg mooie grain met een zeer volwassen karakter. Mooie aardse tonen, bitter zonder bitter te zijn. Mooi spul!

Fruits (pineapple, overripe apples and peaches), dominant vanilla, leather, tobacco, caramel, only hints of glue, wood polish.

Taste

Fruits (pineapple, overripe apples and peaches), leather, tobacco, wood polish, dark chocolate.

Finish

Long. Dark chocolate, dark fruits, espresso, cigar box.

Comments

Very nice grain. These old grains are almost behave like malts. Quite deep and some great tobacco notes.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Die Nase ist auch nach einer gefühlten Ewigkeit in Glas noch immer sehr bescheiden. Alkohol dominiert die Aromen. Dazu ein bisschen Schokolade, aber das war es dann auch. 

Taste

Im Geschmack dann schon etwas komplexer, hier kommt dann eine leckere Bitterkeit und es wird ordentlich trocken. 

Der Alkohol baut sich langsam auf und ist dann mit einem Schlag da. 

Finish

Der Abgang ist sehr, sehr lang. Wieder mit einer tollen Bitterkeit. Die Eiche drückt zum Ende hin nochmal. Schokolade und dunkle Gewürze sind da. 

Comments

Tja...50 Jahre....auch wenn es nur ein Grain ist...sowas werde ich in Zukunft wohl auch eher selten im Glas haben.

der hier konnte mich leider nicht überzeugen. Die Nase ist einfach nix. Viel zu lasch und ausdruckslos. Da erwarte ich bei diesem Alter was ganz anderes. 

Schade.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Открытый, резкий, зерно, ржаной хлеб, столярная мастерская, растворитель, скипидар, бочковые солёные огурцы, солёные виноградные листья, маринованный чеснок.

Taste

Плотный, насыщенный, дуб, перец, хвоя, горько-сладкий, маслянистый, лимонная цедра, сливочные нотки - сгущённое молоко, сливочный крем, сосновые почки.

Finish

Продолжение вкуса, мягкое, согревающее, хвоя лиственницы, смола, эвкалипт, жжёная карамель, солёные виноградные листья.

Comments

Впечатления двоякие - с одной стороны весьма насыщенно и комплексно, приятный и лёгкий виски, весьма близок к бурбонам и американским ржаным, но с другой стороны - 50 лет, где они?? есть масса тех же молодых ржаных американцев, немного отстающих по глубине и мощи (ну, ладно, не масса, не столь уж молодых и чуть более чем немного отстающих, но, как говорится, ложки мы нашли, а осадок остался), более резких, практически идентичных по составу производных, да, цена относительно невысока, но за эти деньги можно найти более привлекательные варианты как среди зерновых, так и среди сингл молтов.

Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Note
08 Mar 2017 9:43 pm

Sirop de fruits, cuir, sucre, banane, légère note de solvant, puis caramel et une note boisée assez typique des bourbons. Quelle profondeur ! Au bout d'un certain temps, il fait vraiment penser à un bourbon. En bouche, il est sirupeux et doux mais il y a aussi une belle attaque avec des épices douces. C'est surtout dans la finale qu'il révèle son grand âge avec des fruits cuits et du miel, très long et persistant.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Quote Whiskynotes.be (Ruben) - November 23, 2016

Golden Grain 50 yo (50%, Cooper’s Choice 2016, fresh bourbon cask #0042, 250 btl.)

Nose: warmer, with a little more vanilla and warm leather than the others. Nice rummy bananas flambéed, subtle herbs and some glue. Possibly the most rounded, sweet nose of the trio, really luscious. Mouth: fruity notes (peaches on syrup, roasted pineapple), hints of vanilla and honey. Golden raisins. Ginger and pepper from the wood. Hints of tobacco. Polished wood. Hints of cognac, hints of bourbon whiskey too. Some resinous notes, more oaky roughness than in the 1964 cask #1307. Finish: medium long, a bit more spicy and herbal now, with hints of gingerbread.

I found out I tried this one earlier this year. My notes are a confirmation of what I wrote back then: it’s a great grain whisky, very round but maybe a tad sweet for some. Around € 230.

Score: 90/100
