Follow-up to tasting note of June 14. Flavours have melded together very nicely and now adds some smoke. All other flavours remain present with more depth and richness

Comments

Much different than sample from an open bottle months ago. This note from fresh opened bottle. Flavours were more settled from the sample and time with air really gave it a feeling of warmth and comfort. New open bottle finds flavours attacking more and fighting for their place.  Nice bottle but time and air will be it's friend I think.

N- Open up with salt elements, some camphor and drift of vanilla. Eucalyptus are rather prominent and lasting. Soft herbs, milky chocolate, soft sherry notes. Dried fruits emerged with dash of farm-y and rubbery, soft tree-sap at the tails. Last but not least, some dried lavender. A whisky with collective of characters from various malts, blended in great harmony.

P- Salted madeira soaked cherries. honey, fresh and clean. Some active wood complimented well to the complex mouthfeel. Some charred notes.

F- Medium, smooth. Monk fruits, waxy raisin, sweet pepper and umami, touch of savoury.

— at Home.

Ruben write:
Blended malt XO (44,7%, The Whisky Agency ‘Good Vibes’ 2016, sherry butt, 317 btl.)

Nose: opens on classic prunes, blackcurrant jam, rum & raisins, but it’s more on the savoury side due to some dried herbs. Some leather but also a peculiar kind of smokiness that hints towards old Macallan indeed. A little buttered, burnt toast. Gentle vanilla. Mouth: rich, still mostly taking the drier / savoury path. Dried fruits, dates, hints of smoky Oloroso. After a few seconds there’s a burst of juicier fruits, raspberry and redcurrant jam. Really nice. Some orange marmalade. Drier, nuttier and more herbal touches towards the end. Finish: medium long,

A gentle mix of old Macallan with a few drops of smoky Karuizawa, topped up with fruity, young Glenfarclas. That’s what it tastes like and the actual recipe may not be far off (except for the Karuizawa of course). Very good value. Around € 100.

Score: 89/100

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Sherry, etwas Trockenfrüchte, Butter, Salz und Schweiß. Erwärmt kommt dunkles Fruchtkompott hinzu, sowie Anfllüge von Soyasauce. 

Taste

Süß und adstringierend zugleich, bei eher dünner Konsistenz. Etwas schräges Mundgefühl, aber gar nicht mal schlecht. Honigsauce über Grapefruitschnitzen.

Finish

Recht kurz und unspektakulär mit ein wenig Eiche, schade.

Comments

Von dem hatte ich mir deutlich mehr versprochen. Auf seine Art ist er nicht schlecht, aber es fehlen mir etwas die Harmonie und das besondere. Die Nase ist recht austauschbar, der Abgang ist eindeutig zu kurz! 

Gruß von hier...
