Taste: Malt Chocolate Berries Sweet Heather Tobacco Salt

Finish: Malt Hazelnut Pepper Bonfire Smoke Honey

Comment: Quite hard to pick out the tasting notes on this one. Depending on what you eaten or been drinking before this one, it may have a smell/taste like fresh meat.

Color: quite natural gold (even though, it's not natural)
Nose: Sherry, vanilla, raisins, new wood, leather, prunes. Reminds me Aberlour Double Cask 12 yo a little bit… but in this case, I feel a bit of smokiness, which surprises me. The aroma is beautiful 23/25
Palate: Leather, chocolate, butterscotch, Sherry, coffee, a pinch of smoke. Very subtle, typical Speysider. 22/25
Finish: bitter chocolate, semi-dry wine, yeasty, a little short, watery and slightly metallic 20/25
Balance: Sensational! Nose and the Palate are great, but the finish is a bit disappointing. However, it's the first time I met a Speyside Whisky with a little shadow of a peatiness. Very, very interesting. 23/25
I had a great expectations about this Whisky. I am not disappointed. I’m looking forward to trying other Speyside Whiskies. I fully recommend
Overall 88/100

...............Deutsch...............
Farbe: eher natürliches Gold (obwohl es nicht natürlich ist)
Nase: Sherry, Vanille, Rosinen, neues Holz, Leder, getrocknete Pflaumen. Er erinnert mir Aberlour Double Cask 12 Jahre alt... aber in diesem Fall merkt man ein bisschen Rauch, was mich überrascht. Das Aroma ist sehr schön 23/25
Körper: Leder, Schokolade, Karamell-Sahnesoße, Sherry, Kaffee, eine Prise Rauch. Sehr subtiler, typischer Speysider. 22/25
Finish: Bitterschokolade, halbtrockener Wein, Hefe, ein bisschen zu kurz, wässrig und leicht metallisch 20/25
Balance: Sensationell! Nase und Gaumen sind großartig, aber das Finish ist etwas enttäuschend. Es ist jedoch das erste Mal, dass ich einen Speyside Whisky mit einem kleinen Schatten einer Torfigkeit getroffen habe. Sehr, sehr interessant. 23/25
Ich hatte große Erwartungen an diesen Whisky. Ich bin nicht enttäuscht. Ich freue mich darauf, andere Speyside Whiskys zu probieren. Ich empfehle völlig
Insgesamt 88/100

Nosing: Malt Tropical Fruit Fruit Vanilla Sweet Honey Herbs Mint Pineapple Floral

Taste: Malt Honey Sweet Pineapple Fruit Dried Fruit Mint Oak Tropical Fruit

Finish: Oak Malt Sherry Herbs Fruit Pineapple Dark Chocolate Coffee

Comment: Very complex and is a very aromatic speyside malt. The finishing is not long enough to savour, but is not too short. The balancing is a bit off to floral and tropical fruits, if it wasn't because of the maltiness I would have thought it was not a whisky but a brandy instead. Overall a very good speyside if you have enough time to appreciate the complexity of this malt. Just a bit off balanced for me.
