whisky-doris.de writes: This delicious single malt comes from a Speyside distillery, whose name can not be mentioned. The barrel inspired us with its dirty-complex flavors.
After more than 20 years in (refill-) Sherry Hogshead, this filling on the nose initially shows dirty aromas of gunpowder, then wonderful dark fruits (plum, blackberry), dark chocolate and gentle spices. The onset in the mouth is stronger than the alcohol content suggests and the flavors clearly on the fruity-chocolaty side with a very pleasant sweetness. The finish has a beautiful length with complex development, the dirty flavors envelop the flattering aromas - exciting, unusual and warming - a fascinating Speysider in its best age! Tip: this 1995 Speyside should give you plenty of time to breathe, so that all flavors can show - it's worth it! The label is by Ralf Berger and shows a motif by Alberto Vargas.
