    • Nose
      dark fruits, almost towards red wine; a touch of caramel; clear citrus note; Sherry; the sherry typical "molasses and brown sugar flair" is something in the background. Due to the dominant citrus note rather a sour red wine flair (very interesting)
      without water I have more of the sherry and its sweet character
    • Taste
      Sherry; Oak comes fast (nice spicy, light cinnamon note) nice "wood" (goes into tenderly bitter (chocolate), then a good trace of leather, while still sweet and fruity, the sherry takes on the second sip clearly and it puts a strong Saliva flow in. Clear citrus notes appear in between (flashing briefly)
      Sweeter at first without water; then clearer oak, gets a little creamier and comes very loaded and full; Caramel; citrus; Honey; Fruit; a little nut; Shortbread dough;
    • Finish
      Sweet, then oak; Sherry; fruity intense (like red wine, but without the dry feeling in the mouth); then a trace of alcohol, which quickly vanishes again. Then again this dark barrel seasoning (cinnamon) with a chocolaty touch and almost a touch of espresso / coffee.
      Cinnamon and chocolate without water, then a hint of coffee and tobacco

  3. Noface83 scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Nose: What an unusual but good nose. "hedonisto" has already described it quite well with buttercream cake, but he also has some fleshy (slight umami note), big meaty plums, toffee, coffee, but the alcohol is not as if one would expect more than 60% The whisky is reminiscent of a coffee party with mild aromatic coffee and soft cake with cream filling. Unusual and good!
    Taste: This occupies the whole mouth. The strong alcohol tingles something without being too spicy. He also carries an intense taste of brandy chocolates, raisins, buttercream and coffee. In the finish then a strong sweetness (coffee cake) and a little ginger sharpness from the oak. The finish is only medium in the taste but a nice heat glows long after in the throat.
    A successful jubilee bot of / for Alba Import that was love for me at first sip.
