However, for me too "normal" to spend 65 EUR for a pint of 4-year Peated distillate, which unfortunately does not really work in the maturity zone. Unfortunately, it is too easy to replace with better and significantly cheaper Peated newcomers from Laph, Ardmore or sonsitigem Peated fabric from Scotland and I think that's a pity.
10 years ago, this German whisky would have been the absolute cracker (in the domestic comparison with the others, of course), but the Germans Distiller generally have not slept in these 10 years or have not stopped.
The fabric is in intl. Compare a unfortunately not yet fully developed standard (although I think it's not bad) from a standard barrel, to unfortunately standard bottle, standard label and standard packaging.
You have to, I think, sometimes have the courage to take special paths and to run the extra mile like some other nationals who play at the international level but still remember their own profile.
Or you have to do it like the big ones.
Cheap prices for good standards, butter & bread whisky just because:
German whisky goes industry and this will become noticeable at the latest when St. Kilian is firmly established in the market in a few years.
Although it is not independent and tastes equally easily replaceable.
If the 0.7 liter bottle is then sold for 40-50 EUR (twice the current 0.35 liter Spirit bottle), then it could be dark in most German distilleries.
