Color
Old oak
Nose

A lot of sherry sweetness, milk chocolate  and plums. 

Taste

dry tobacco, milk chocolate and plums again. 

Finish

Cocoa powder, milk chocolate and a bit of tobacco. Very long and very enjoyable

Comments

Continuation of the blind tasting 18th of 24 drams. So far the best dram and surely one that I would buy. It reminds me a bit on the Glenlivet Sherry Butts of Signatory Vintage this year but the nose seems to be even sweeter than these I had. I guess we have a 20 year old 58% Sherry Cask (maybe even PX) dram from the Speyside which is a very balanced and enjoyable sherry dram.


Wow 64% that is nothing that I would have expected. Well implemented alcohol!

Color
Brown sherry
Nose

The color is inbetween Tawny and Brown Sherry, being a lot closer to Brown Sherry and there's not a hint of red.

Sherryeinfluss sofort am Glas, wird dann umgehend grüner, Äpfel und Wiesenkräuter. Nach Standzeit sehr satt und süß mit vielen kandierten Früchten, aber auch Schwefel, im positiven Sinne. Bei Bewegung immer wieder etwas frischer, dazu Tabak und Holz, in Starkwein eingelegte Pflaumen, aber auch medizinische Noten, eine eigentümliche Mischung aus säuerlichem Desinfektionsmittel, Möbelpolitur und Fruchtaromen, tut bald so, als wäre es Rauch. Die Note hält sich unheimlich stabil im unbewegten Glas. Erwärmt satter, mehr Holz.
Taste

Satt, beinahe harzig, jedoch sehr kräftig mit Tonnenweise Schokolade, Nadelholzhonig und Fichtennadelöl sowie vielen Röstaromen.  Dabei wird er jedoch nie zu süß, entwickelt nach hinten etwas Menthol und deutlich herbe Anklänge der Eiche. Es ist alles vorhanden, süß, herb, sauer, schön miteinander verwoben.

Finish

Im Abgang trocknet er ab, geht dann mit herber Belegtheit des Mundraums relativ zügig, insgesamt mittellang würde man wohl sagen. 

Comments

Oh ja, der gefällt mir in der Tat richtig gut. Überhaupt nicht langweilig oder Sherry overpowered, das passt schon alles so. Lediglich der Abgang dürfte noch etwas mehr Eindruck hinterlassen, naja, und der Alkohol einen Tick besser eingebunden sein, aber das ist jammern auf hohem Niveau. Vom Antritt her beginnt er sehr weich, süß und voll, dann poltert der Alkohol rein und danach trocknet er völlig ab und ist eigentlich auch schnell weg. 

Notes aus einer Blindverkostung. 

OK, mit 63,9% habe ich jetzt nicht gerechnet, der Alkohol könnte definitiv nicht besser eingebunden sein!

IMHO sehr alkohollastig und recht eindimensional. Mit Wasser etwas besser aber hält nicht ganz das, was die Farbe und das Alter versprechen...leider.
