  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I have tasted barrels 654 and 655 in parallel and it's amazing how different the two are. Here you will find a quite fruity and fresh whisky with a decent oak and I can imagine that this keg will not pick up every 100%. I like this freshness and raspberry note quite well, although I would easily give preference to the classic sherry 655.
    • Nose
      Starts nicely fruity on the nose, a little raspberry, rather fresh than dark and heavy, some mint, over it is a chocolate creamy and with a little time it becomes spicier, tobacco, a breeze of pepper, very nice, does not seem overloaded and the sherry it does not jump straight into your face, the overall impression is more spicy than sweet, the raspberry is like a blob of sauce on top, the alcohol is well integrated, after the first sip the nose opens up again, now much more intense, here too nut and also some lovage
    • Taste
      heavy and oily, creamy, raspberry, dry, nuts, oak, above it always fresh fruit, behind dark chocolate, the second sip then extremely astringent, oak and raspberry in purest form, a fruit bomb with a beautiful oak, also in the mouth rather fresh, than of deep, dark sherry influence, I like it
    • Finish
      pleasant with nuts, raspberry, almost as if one had drunk a raspberry spirit, if still the pure raspberry essence holds, Fruchtschale, becoming dry
