General description

In der Nase Honig-süßer, warmer, speckiger Rauch. Im Hintergrund leichte Kräuternoten und Früchte.

Im Mund sehr weich und ölig mit leichten Sherry Noten und einer minimalen Salzigkeit. Dazu schon im Mund leichte Asche.

Der Abgang ist sehr mild, würzig und aschig, wird zudem immer fruchtiger mit Zartbitterschokolade im Hintergrund.

Die Speerspitze der Distillers Edition Range, im Vergleich zum klassischen 16er viel zugänglicher und interessanter durch die süßen Fruchtnoten.

Note: 1-

8/10
