Starke Holzaromen und viel Sherryfrucht empfinde ich als angenehm, die erste halbe Flasche habe ich noch genossen, aber dann andere Tropfen probiert, nach einem Jahr mit gelegentlichem probieren und im Vergleich mit anderen Sherrymalts musste ich den Rest verschenken, seine sprittig junge Note verdirbt mir den Genuss - vllt ist es auch der Brennereicharakter, dagegen spricht aber das ich den American Oak sehr mag

Marko_I Tasting note
less than a year ago
Color
Tawny
Nose

ziemlich intensiv, herbe Trockenfrüchte, Storck Riesen, Melasse, Zuckerrübensirup, altes Leder, Möbelpolitur... und im Hintergrund eine leichte künstlich-florale Note

Taste

samtig-trocken, aber recht kräftig, viel dunkle Schokolade, Sachertorte, etwas Zimtschärfe, ein Hauch Möbelpolitur/Wachs

Finish

mittellang bis lang, erst sehr schokoladig, dann trockener, holziger, schärfer

Comments

Sehr intensiv, hat gut Sherry mitbekommen, viel Schokolade, allerdings schimmern der künstlich-blumige Brennereicharakter in der Nase und etwas (jugendliche?) Schärfe noch durch, für ~44€ recht lecker, hat einen Stammplatz in der Whiskybar und kommt gut an.
