Vita Dulcis 7 – Germany Slyrs Oloroso 55.9%

Our 1st encounter with Slyrs was a few years ago as part of Whisky Ladies European evening with the Slyrs 51 51% – not really our tipple.  Fast forward and we quite enjoyed the Sild “Crannog” 3 year Single Malt 48%.

So I approached the Oloroso from the Vita Dulcis 2020 Advent Calendar with an open mind, curious to see what I would discover!

Germany – Slyrs “Worldwidespirits” Limited Edition Vintage 2012-16 Oloroso Cask 55.9%

  • Nose – OMG no! There is something rotten, frankly foul, if I’m charitable I would compare it to blue cheese… I’m so sorry… I just couldn’t get past the nose… Several times I went to take a sip and was turned away by the aromas…
  • Palate – But trooper that I am, eventually I managed to take a sip. Yes it was better than the nose but… other than vague over ripe prunes… sigh….
  • Finish – Yes… there is one… mostly dates

I could not even go back for a 2nd sip, no attempt to try with water… none of the normal things I would do even with a ‘challenging’ whisky.

I tried to find out more but didn’t have much luck with English language searches.

Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I was turned off by a whisky. I really don’t mean to be uncharitable but….

Just no.
