- Nose: Sweet and light-fruited with a pleasant tart, sour oak. I associate light grapes, green apple, oranges, orange peel, slightly vanilla, slightly banana, burnt sugar and old wet wood which easily goes into the musty. I also like to hear something else like pine resin, eucalyptus and mint, very interesting! I really like the oak flavors. Nevertheless, the sweet as well as the tart accents are doing well. Taste: A short, pungent sweetness with brown sugar, honey, light grapes and orange. The aromas of the nose are repeated and this interesting oak shows on the tongue. Zartherbe slightly musty oak with a tendency to pine resin, which I find very interesting and represents a unique selling point for me so far. The finish is hardly bitter with some dark chocolate, orange peel and just this resinous, slightly musty oak. Overall interesting and tasty. Conclusion: fans of the barrel-rich oak flavors will definitely find something here. I like the piglet, but not as good as the 89er of the 2017 Spring Releases.
- Rich aroma of fresh fruit, not quite like the style of Shirley barrel, but more close to the Bourbon barrel. Vanilla "pear," "lemon," "bitter orange," "toast, after the entrance, the oily feeling is very rich, but unfortunately the year is not enough, the alcohol will come out in the last. After entering the throat, the end rhyme is very long, stay in the most It's a delightful smell.
- subtle, wonderfully curling honey-citrus nose - lots of wax and grass notes - I could spend forever.
Very light-fruited - the oak looks fresher, hardly any pews, but slightly resinous like the OA 25yo.
On the palate impressive complexity, sticks like oil on the palate, very thin finish. Here, too, citrus dominates with mint and oak - no trace of sherry.
High quality, a delicious malt - not necessarily what you expect when you order a piglet.
