Nose

Oh, hallo! Mächtiger Antritt. Viel Sherry. Sehr würzig. Deutlich spürbar ist der hohe Alkoholgehalt. Klebrige Datteln. Etwas Leder. Wird mit der Zeit im Glas immer herzhafter im Eindruck.

Taste

Der gibt erwartungsgemäß kräftig Gas. Richtig schön süß und dunkel-fruchtig. Pflaumen und Datteln. Karamell. Würzige Eiche. Tabak. Sehr lecker!

Finish

Der Abgang ist lang und wärmend. Kakao und etwas Mokka.

Nose

Rosinen, eindeutig Oloroso-Sherry, Lebkuchen, getrocknete Datteln, etwas Ingwer, roter Traubensaft, Tannennadeln, Zimt, mit nur 3 Tropfen Wasser muffiger, Teppichgeschäft, Ricola-Kräuterbonbons, ein minimaler Anklang von Motoröl und Tomatensaft, später Schokolade und braune Bananen

Taste

Haselnüsse, würzig-trocken, die 58,1 % machen sich doch bemerkbar, verdünnt dann etwas süßer und allgemein mit einer cremigen Textur

Finish

jetzt spürbar bittere Holztannine, dabei durchaus lang, Milchkakao und erwartungsgemäß kräftig wärmend, breitet sich schön im hinteren Mund- Rachenraum aus

Comments

um in der allerersten Liga mitzuspielen fehlt mMn etwas die Eleganz im Geschmack, gibt man ihm aber Wasser und ausreichend Zeit, ist er ein leckerer älterer Sherry-Speysider mit guter Komplexität

Burnt umber
Nose

Quite intense and dry. Sulphury at first. Every taster has an individual sulpher-tipping point. The point that the sulpher goes from ‘nice/edgy/interesting/character’ to ‘way too much sulpher’. This Burgie is balancing on that point for me. Furthermore the whisky has nuts in the nose (hazelnuts), and some dried fruits (raisin). Some flowery notes in there as well, at least some of the distillerycharacter survived in this cask. Overall a full, dry nose.

Taste

This is very nice. I like this more than the nose actually. Very warming, mouthcoating. The sulpher has taken a more humble place. In it’s place come spices (nutmeg), nuts and dried fruits. Very well balanced, lots of big flavours. Nice.

Finish

Hmmm. Sulphur comes back a bit. With the spices. Quite long and dry.

Comments

A heavily sherried whisky balancing on ‘much’ and ‘too much’. A nice whisky for the holidays, but not for everyone.

A very good intense, rich, fruity and floral Glenburige, with pleasant aromas of dark chocolate
