    Goldlys 12 year old Manzanilla Finish 1st Release, 43%. Belgian blended grain whisky.

    30ml sample Sep 2022.

    Dark amber. Very orange looking.

    Aroma is waxy, dry sherry, green apple, hint of bubblegum, some oaky calvados. A little sharper than it probably should be at the ABV but not bad. Fairly pleasant.

    Body is watery.

    Taste has more of that calvados and salt, prickly heat, ethanol flavours come through a bit - similar to some young bourbons, there’s that hint of bitter uncooked corn which again brings my mind towards bourbon. Dry ethanol led finish.

    Tastes quite young for a 12 year old whisky. The edge hasn’t come off the spirit. It has an oaken bitterness to the finish but without rounded or sweet cask flavours. It’s really not that bad though – just reminds me of the rougher drier style of bourbon but with some faint dry sherry and calvados complexity. Perfectly fine for mixing but not something I’d look forward to drinking. 3.25/78
