General description

Schon ausgewogener und komplexer Malt. Vor allem die Nase begeistert. Toller Whisky.

Nose

Zuerst frisch mit süßen Zitrusfrüchten und einem zartem, aromatischen Holzrauch. Es folgen Honig, Vanille und Äpfel. Vielleicht etwas Ingwer und eine Spur Eiche und Salz. Die Früchte werden immer dunkler und auch die Süße nimmt zu. Sehr schöne und komplexe Nase!

Palate

Zuerst ölig und weich, dann setzt eine deutliche, pfeffrige Würze ein. Leichte, helle Früchte, Vanille und Schokolade. Dabei immer sehr süß und salzige Noten.

Finish

Hier kommt der Holzrauch zurück, dazu Früchte, Honig und leichte Bitterkeit der Eiche.

General description

Quite well rounded, if a little muddled. There is plenty of character & depth but it almost gets lost in itself. The malty spice oak core is present throughout with wafts of smoke and fruits vying for attention.

Nose

Quite fruity plum, & apricot, citrus tones. Oaty nutmeg, bitter sweet, gentle smokey undertone.

Palate

Initially crisp & fresh. Rounded palate, malty vanilla, fruit flavours, gentle woody spice, tannin rich and a hint of smoke.

Finish

Medium long, plenty of spiced warmth. Fruit still offers a sweetness behind the malt and gentle smoke.
