  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is something for people who like it a bit more rustic. The 43% are quite enough, bring enough aromas, (even seems a bit stronger), for 80 € but it should have been a bit more, especially since the "adulthood" of 19 years not really durchschlägt, blind I would probably rather towards ~ 12 CS located as 19/43%. So delicious, but priced borderline.
    • Nose
      "dirty" sherry, nutty, spicy, old bread, wet clay, sawdust, I also imagine a slight saltiness
    • Taste
      strong (seems to me at least 46%), nut, wood, dark chocolate with black pepper, rye meal and sawdust, somehow creamy-peppery in the mouthfeel
    • Finish
      medium to long, cocoa, wood, pepper
