General description

Sehr, sehr süß und fruchtig. Unglaublich süffig und lecker.

Nose

Sofort süß mit Honig und Rosinen, dazu als Kontrast leicht säuerliche Äpfel, Kirsche und gebackene Banane. Dazu etwas frische Eiche. Superschöne Fruchtaromen!

Palate

Im ersten Moment mild und fruchtig-süß, dann deutliche Pfefferwürze. Cremige Vanille, später Honig und Rosinen.

Finish

Mega Süß und dunkelfruchtig, später trockener werdend mit etwas Schokolade.

General description

In der Nase Toffee, Honig und Nüsse, sehr süß und weniger fruchtig als erwartet. Evtl. etwas Marzipan.

Im Mund dann fruchtiger und im Abgang relativ leicht mit etwas Eiche und hintergründig leichte Sherry Frucht.

Insgesamt schöner Everyday Whisky, ich hätte nur etwas mehr Sherry Einfluss erwartet.

Note: 2+

General description

This whisky is perfect for when you're starting to be an advanced whisky drinker; malty complexity that makes you understand malt notes in general better. caramel, freshly cut grass, maltiness and cereal, apricots, pear, grapes (slightly raisin-like), pine apple and some dried fruits. A bit of cloves and ginger as well

General description

Fruity sweetness (pear, yellow fruits) and a very rounded malty taste. Remarkable balance for a very enjoyable dram. Fully worth the price.
