    To start with the best feature:
    Great Nosing! Reminds of course to Bunni, who was in the glass before, but really great combination.

    A similar, albeit weaker combination of the two flavors Bunni and Westfalian reached the Malt in the finish, where the Bunni notes turn up again.

    I found the initial taste as well as the body a bit "meaningless". But that's not worth the money, but reminds me of a flavourful and very young Irish whisky.

    Price also plays this Westphalian as all of the same home in the lower upper class, which is tolerable for some winners because of this quality due to exotic status, but not more.

    Make-up is well done as usual, but unspectacular.

    All in all, it's more of a thing for the ebay specialists and exotic collectors. For the common connoisseur, who like me just like to drink whisky, there is either better (also domestic or exotic) for the same money (Kavalan, Mackmyra, Teerenpeli, Glen Els, Ayrer's, Alt Enderle) or the same for less.
