The best of the 12 year old and 15 year old in one bottle 😊

Completely different from the “12” & “15”, it’s much drier. One of the best in its price range.

I am a bit disappointed, DDL has so many stills at their disposal, and this is an opportunity missed. It is OK to sip, blind I might think of it as an old sweetened Solera. And sweet it is, to the point that it loses its character. Fruit, Caramel and at the end wood, accompanied by lots of sweetness. I heard, the newer releases have less to no sugar, and am actually interested if they are an improvement. This is clearly aimed at the mass market, and not at enthusiasts, sadly.

Smell quite nice. Taste sharp and not quite balanced. But a nice, extremely (!) long finish with wood, fruit and raisin. The 15 was more substantial, milder, even balanced, but also sweeter (sugared).

sötad lågprocentare som är väldigt len men ger inga stora smaker utan en söt o kolasmakande dryck

super tasty. Similar to 15y. Price difference 15y not worth it

Pulito, preciso, delicato, rotondo, equilibrato, finale aromatico. Un vero dolcetto che prende il meglio dal 15 e dal 12 e lo evolve ancora oltre abbracciando con una raffinatezza e dolcezza tipica della distilleria

Too oaked and "artificial" in my opinion. Peppery and sweet, but without real depth.

Apfel und Birne in der Nase, ausgeprägt fruchtig im Mund, etwas Holz was in den Abgang übergeht.

A little woody side that I appreciate

Too sweet, sweetness almost artificial

A very pleasant and greedy nose full of pastry notes, cookies coming out of the oven with butterscotch and cooked orange zest. In the mouth it is complex, full. The woodiness comes out but doesn't take over, it's pleasantly round and the slightly bitter finish with the orange still coming out, it almost lacks a little power. We still taste a very well mastered and elaborated product.
