Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Cherry, blueberry, caramel and rum-like brown sugar.

Taste

Quite old-school sherry. Toffee, blueberry, raisin, leather and hazelnut.

Finish

Caramel, chocolate, hazelnut, cherry.

Comments

Much better than the 22YO, much more sherried and better integrated. It's less obvious that this is a blend than with the 22.

In my opinion this one is at least as good as the 35YO, so in price-quality ratio it's the best one.

Color
Auburn
Nose

Sherry, plums, some vanilla, caramel, honey, some scones, leach, glue, raisins, almonds.

Taste

Sherry, dark fruits, spices, cherry, some leather, getting dryer, a nice texture by the way.

Finish
Medium. Oak. Some chocolate, some fruits.

Comments
Like the 22 year old a very pleasant malt. This one is also not too much into the Grain direction what makes it quite interesting for 30€! The 27 year old is more handsome than the 22 year old malt.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 10/10

xFabe Tasting note

Color
Tawny
Nose

Dunkel und erwachsen, mit der Zeit etwas fruchtiger werdend, getrocknete Orangenscheibe, leider geht etwas Kraft verloren, die 40% können die Aromen nicht tragen, etwas Parfum, ganz leicht Leder, zweite Nase bringt Assoziationen an Weihrauch und weißen Pfeffer

Taste

Hier passiert jetzt was: Leckere Sherrysüße gepaart mit einer angenehmen Menge Würzigkeit auf der Zunge, Brombeermarmelade, fast schon etwas sirupartig, hier stören die 40% nicht

Finish

Süße und Würze dominieren auch den Abgang, etwas Glühweinaroma, dezente Nussigkeit, Schokolade 

Nicht allzu lang, aber dafür lecker.
Comments

Der Whisky ist unabhängig vom Preis gesehen schon wirklich gut. Für 30€ ist das Ding ausgezeichnet.

Der Einfluss des Grain ist wahrnehmbar, jedoch nicht so stark und störend wie vermutet. Insgesamt wirkt er etwas aufgesetzt und stark gefärbt. In der Preisklasse bis 30 € ein toller Trinkwhisky.

Wanneer tijd (ca. half uurtje) en handwarmte in acht is genomen, is het een best aardige blend, met vooral wat zoete en koffie-achtige accenten.
