    very dark color that invites to smell, looks very delightful.

      whisky opens very slowly and in the beginning only clear sherry bomb. After a little rest, everything is nicely expressed: raisin, bittersweet smell, ripe berries, coffee, plums, dates, figs, lightly burnt caramel, mocha, chocolate, sulfur
    • Taste
      87 87
      full bodied, mocha, chocolate, cranberries, oak, mint, loads of dried fruits, light pepper
    • Finish
      87 87
      sweet sherry, oak, mint, espresso, pinch of pepper, nice transitions between sweet, spices and bitter. Beautiful in balance

    So the second half of my sample has promised me more now. However, I'm not and will not be such a big fan of such whiskys. I'm missing the tension somehow. Brennereicharakter or similar looking for such comrades, of course, in vain, as the sherry powerful ironing about it. Everything goes very clear in one direction, which is too one-dimensional to me. After all, the sherry here was well integrated by age. For younger sherry bombs is the most for me also put on.
    So it was interesting, but that's almost the direction of the sprinkled sherry. I do not need a big bottle of such specimens.
    • Nose
      As you might expect ... Heavy sherry. Mixed berry jam (eg strawberry, raspberry). Cooked cherries. Rum raisins. Baklava with a lot of walnuts. Leather. Some white pepper.
    • Taste
      Initially sweet. Has almost something of molasses. Now again fruit. But now rather berries that change from sweet to slightly sour. Then some marzipan. Now the walnut comes through again and it gets more bitter. Cappuccino.
    • Finish
      Ritter Sport rum grape nut, coffee and oak.

    Some will love him, the others will think he is a sherry. I personally love such sherry bombs. Exactly my thing and the finish is awesome!
    • Nose
      This is such a nose, where one wonders at first, if this is not a sherry, you have here in the glass, fat dark fruits, raisins, plum compote, behind it will be spicy, iodine, some menthol, wet tobacco, Espresso, bittersweet, lightly liquorice,
    • Taste
      oily, full, sweet, dark fruit, yes licorice, espresso, intense, good woody, tobacco, slightly peppery, very intense, a veritable explosion of taste
    • Finish
      getting slightly dry from the oak, over all are the raisins and still the licorice, not as if you were just eating them, but so the aftertaste, some fruit bowl, now he is a little more restrained, slightly sweet fading, great finish
