General description

Caramel bomb. There's smoke and salt, a but of oak, and some honeyed cereal, but all covered over by caramel. a few minutes after drinking, the finish turned to tart berries.

General description

Süß und fruchtig. Kurzer Abgang. In der Nase deutlich interessanter als im Geschmack.

Nose

Wasserzugabe hebt Schokolade, Holz und leichte Süße hervor, drängt Frucht etwas zurück. Deutlich angenehmer. Aprikose, Ananas, Birne. Später etwas Meeresbrise und Salz.

Palate

Frucht, viel Alkohol. Etwas Birne. Im Mund nicht unbedingt mein Favorit...

Finish

Würze, etwas Nuss, später leicht bitter.

General description

Een Jura van de "oude" serie. Een zoete, kruidige neus met honing en eik. De smaak is zacht, honing, beetje vanille, licht kruidig en een zoutig randje (drop) dat blijft hangen in de afdronk. Niet héél spannend maar voor de prijs absoluut geen foute whisky

General description

Initially I was not a fan, but the whisky has developed well since opening and now has a comparably smooth body. There's little to it at first but if you can scrape the surface there's a bit of depth.

Nose

Cereals & malt, sweet vanilla & lemon zest.

Palate

Soft earthy/nutty flavours and a gentle smoke over a sweet malr core. Hint of caramel. Light on the tongue.

Finish

Gently spiced with a medium length. Dry.

General description

Für das Alter und den Preis ein richtig toller Malt.

Nose

Zuerst sanft mit einem leichtem Raucharoma und Nüssen. Dann Vanille und Salz. Später Gewürze und eine schöne Orangennote. Recht komplex.

Palate

Sehr ölig, frisch und fruchtig. Dann ein ordentlich Pfeffer und wärmend.

Finish

Malz, wieder Salz, vielleicht eine Spur Jod und Rauch. Dann verbleibt noch längere Zeit ein Zartbitter Aroma.

General description

A very pleasant dram that should appeal to most. It's quite simple, but very smooth and with lovely sweet and classic flavours. The nose is almost pure caramel with some dark chocolate and malt coming through. The palate is initially sweet with plenty of that caramel, and it has some vanilla and floral notes that come through, a little fig and jasmine. The finish is quite strong, too, lasting nicely on the tongue with mostly sweetness and then a lingering caramelised taste. A very good entry whisky, or just one to enjoy for any occasion. You can't go too wrong with this one.

Nose

Caramel, malt, dark chocolate.

Palate

Caramel, fig, jasmine.

Finish

Brown sugar, caramelised.
