Color
Deep gold
Nose

Raisins, apple juice and cinnamon. The alcohol is still noticeable in this relatively young whisky.

Taste

Creamy mouth feel, if you take a big sip. Vanilla, followed by dark chocolate and spices.

Finish

Medium in length. Dark chocolate and a bitter fruitiness persist the longest.

Comments

Nice sherried whisky. Neither complex nor strong, but very enjoyable nevertheless -- especially for the price!

Color
Old gold
Nose

Kräftige Sherrynote. Malzig, honigsüß, Früchtebrot. Wird mit der Zeit immer würziger. Im Hintergrund zeigen sich leichte Leder- und Holzaromen. Über allem liegt eine leichte alkoholische Schärfe

Taste

Fruchtig süßer Antritt mit einer dezenten Chili-Schärfe. Honig, Vanille und Eichenwürze. Dazu kommt dunkle Schokolade. Sehr cremiges Mundgefühl. Auch hier habe ich das Früchtebrot, wenn auch nicht so deutlich, wie in der Nase. Außerdem noch Schoko-Lebkuchen. 

Finish

Lang, würzig und süß, mit dunkler Chili-Schokolade. 

Comments

Voller, kräftiger Sherrytropfen, der tatsächlich ein wenig an Weihnachten erinnert
