Jean-Marie Putz

The sherry overruns the nose first, and the power of the whisky makes it slightly aggressive, creating a slight tingling sensation.
In the mouth, this aggressiveness disappears, despite the high percentage of alcohol. Some drops of water are needed to appreciate all the nuances of this whisky. This drop of water also removes any tingling sensation while opening the flavours. The sherry is very present in the palate, together with some well marked fruit hints, and despite the alcohol, a sensation of freshness.
The finish is lingering, with some touches of spices and a great sweetness, contrasting with the very first nosing.

A nose clearly marked by sherry , but also notes of old mouldy leather and very interesting woody hints. Spices and some wet earth.
The mouth is marked by sherry and is rather complex. First rather dry, clearly woody but also rather smooth and fruity.
The finish is long and lingering, and a mix of fruit and sherry with a touch of bitterness remain for a while.

An obsessive sherry presence at the firs nosing, with some hints of prune cake bring their contribution to the rather complex character of this whisky.
The first impression in the palate recalls the high percentage of alcohol. However, it prolongs the nose without any aggressivity. Fine woody touches and fruity notes comolete the whole.
The finish is rather long and warm, recalling the high percentage of alcohol, but at the same time, an impression of sweetness is very characteristic. A kind of magic contrast, you only encounter in the whisky world...

This powerful whisky, powerful because of his smell and his alcohol degree was one of the first cask strengths on the market.
Sherry is immediately detected by the nose.
The taste is very complex, and opens after having added some drops of water.
Very impressive bottle with a rather long finish. A nice example of successful cask strength.

The nose is dominated by the sherry. The high degree of alcohol does not bother the tasting at all, and the taste is very pleasant and complex, mix of chocolate, malt, sherry on a citrus fruit background. The degree of alcohol enhances the powerful character of the taste.
A lingering and pleasant finish, with some spicy hints remains in the palate for long minutes.
