    This to me is a kirsch soaked Black Forest Cale with lemon zest. Inviting and intriguing

    • Nose
      Unusual. Sweet and fruity and yet a little peat. The sherry barrel contributes the fruit notes. I can discover a little cocoa and chocolate and yet peat resonates. Very flattering and no stinging alcohol.
    • Taste
      Also on the palate only a subtle, slowly budding hot pepper. Nice sweet fruits like papaya and pineapple.
    • Finish
      Here the leather armchair comes out with a slight menthol note. Then a little dry and mild spiciness.

      Interesting nose. Definitely something new and different. My immediate thought is pastries, cookies and caramel. Sweet, dried fruits.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Woody, quite spicy. Light, but filling. Warming. Cinnamon, caramel.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long. Woody bitterness - warming.

    Good whisky. But for the price you can expect more. Therefore only 87 points from me.
