dRambo gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Gin clear
Nose

startet mild und süß - Honig, Rosinen, Wachs, Möbelpolitur, grasig - frisch geschnittene Wiese, sehr schöne saftige Eiche, Anis, Limette, Zitronenabrieb, Lorbeer, Kümmel, Rosenwasser

Taste

herb - Tabak, Ingwer, Pfeffer, Walnussschalen, dunkle Schokolade, Haselnusscreme, Kiefernharz, Baumsaft,  - würzig intensiv - nur sehr unterschwellig fruchtig nach Trockenfrüchten, Datteln, Rosinen - zart bittere würzige Eichenfracht, trocken, Sherrysäure - im Vergleich zum 12er und für den geringen Alkoholgehalt ein absolutes Eichenbrett  

Finish

trocken, dunkle Schokolade, Walnüsse, Kaffee - mittellang mit Tendenz zu lang

Comments

einer der intensivsten Malts mit 43% die ich bisher hatte - sehr würzig und Nuss/Schokodunkel mit intensiven Röstaromen - hätte ich niemals für einen Balvenie oder überhaupt einen Speysider gehalten - könnte auch 25yo++ sein - schmeichelnd und würzig. Der Style ist nicht 100% mein Ding aber die Qualität ist beeindruckend hoch und der Malt hat einen sehr hohen Wiedererkennungswert.
