Au nez,bois ,épices et sherry
En bouche,c'est fort niveau alcool ,puis le sherry light(pomme cuite,cerise,raisins doux) embaume,puis des épices niveau cannelle grillée apparaissent ,retour du bois jeune,présent mais pas dominant!
En finale,moyenne à longue avec des épices dans le fond du verre et des fruits secs macérés!

Un dram fort à ne pas prendre à la légère ,même s'il reste jeune!dominance épicée  caractéristique!

Sherry rammer. Eentje aan de zoete kant, eerder caramel dan bv rozijntjes.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

good quality sherry, buttery floral, sweet, stewed fruits, sugars, coffee, bread, tea, hint of grass

Taste

rich, very spicy (dissipates if given time), stewed fruits, elegant sherry, red wood, bread, butter, coffee, hint of cinnamon

Finish

short-medium-short (depending on time), the spiciness will get your attention, woodsy, sour plums, rich fruitiness, sweet grain, hints of coffee, sweet and sour plum sherry at the back

Comments

the flavors are just absolutely beautiful on this one, whatever fault it may have on being a young/NAS whisky is made up for by the intense and elegant fundamental flavor that is present all throughout

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Sehr kräftig, rote Beeren, Mokka, Bitterschokolade, alt wirkt er aber definitiv nicht (aber auch nicht metallisch), Muskat gerieben, etwas Zimt

Taste

Karamell mit roten Beeren gefüllt, Ingwerhimbeermarmelade mit leicht jungem-alkoholischem Touch, Orangenschale, Grapefruit, Hauch Schwefel vllt. sogar im Hintergrund, Muskat, alles sehr wärmend und ein wenig spitz

Finish

Apfelschale, vergammelte Erdbeere, Grapefruit, junge Eiche, kurz bis mittellang

Comments

Ein durchaus netter Sherryknacker in Fassstärke, aber eher was für die Rustikalen, ist jetzt kein Rosinensirup und auch keine Mokkabombam gefällt mir dadurch aber tatsächlich besser als manche Jungsherrys.

Color
Tawny
Nose

Red berries, marshmallow, caramel, cherry wine gums, brown sugar, nutmeg and crême brûlée. Maltier with a drop of water.

Taste

Caramel, hazelnut, cranberry, mocha and pepper. Also here a malty touch when adding water. Don't add too much.

Finish

Nutty, caramel. Also still berries, but less.

Comments

86/87. Better than the preceding batch in my memory. Compared to batch 4, that one was a bit fruitier and this one a bit fudgier.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

lovely, very straight sherry nose on rum raisins and spices like allspice, cinnamon. the oak  brings out hints of lapsang souchong tea and quite some leather. there is also some toffee and freshly ground coffee. roasted aromas that remind me a little at glenmorangie signet.
find this nose very good, after the last two batches that had disappointed me a little.

Taste

very good. even with water it has quite some punch and the whole mouth is covered with a big spiciness and dried fruit. the oak is strong but very pleasing and still there is this signet feeling.
I think they used older casks in this one, I find it really astonishing

Finish

very long, spicy, warming

Comments

very good stuff in my opinion. head to head with batch 4 I find this still better, although Batch 4 was better than I had rememberred it.
(will have to go up with it)
89/100
