    The alternative to the 15-year-old PX Finished.
    Addendum: longer standing does him good (in my view)

      Fruity, sweet, initially typical port, typical dry fruit notes. Later cherries, strawberries, wild berries, Christmassy, ​​very interesting raspberries / raspberry.

    Toller Port Finish Whisky!!!
    • Nose
      Rote Frucht Marmeladekommt als erstes hervor. Kakao- und feines Holzaroma wahrnehmbar.
    • Taste
      Super süß und fruchtig. Eine schöne Sahnigkeit und Schokoladigkeit im Mund. Nussig gegen Ende.
    • Finish
      Schöner langer Abgang, der sehr fruchtig ist. Zum Ende hin eine bitterere Eichennote und ein zarter Hauch Vanille.
