Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonStrong and clean. Malt and nice vanilla in balance. Tasty tasty. Quite excellent vanilla, then the malt. This one works really well on my palate. Simple but very enjoyable indeed.
Keith WoodGlass: Spiegelau - Colour: Gold - Nose: Big, rich, intrusive cocktail of new paint, tobacco, coffee beans and eventually some smoke with slight hints of peat. - Palate: Initially slightly smoky coffee truffle with some chocolate and eventually, rich dark fruits, maybe even dried fruits like currants. - With 4 drops of water in 2cl: The nose is now much more 'maritime' with salt and slightly stale sea-air, or even a stale harbour. The palate is very round with the coffee and chocolate still in abundance, but the maritime elements are also fighting for prominence. - Finish: Very long, but never-ending with the added water! - Overall Impression: Where did it all go? Bloody marvellous, where can I get more?
