Notes from a blind tasting.
Germany? Certainly Germany?
So I thought that was right, really good! I had not heard of the Distille yet. If I'm in the Nuremberg area, I'll definitely take a look at it!
Candied oranges, prunes and a dark acidity just after pouring. After a while, the whole thing seems more set, a classic sherry profile without ifs and buts. If you move the whisky in the glass but you have additional accents of anise and cinnamon, the latter very clear. The sherry is now no longer felt. In between, he remembers mulled wine, then an English-style fruitcake. If you do not move it for a long time, the fruitcake will turn into sherry whisky again. The effect is fascinating and reproducible. If you warm it, you get the impression of fruit cake dipped in mulled wine. In addition, from time to time ripe cherries and a dash of menthol. A completely crazy nose!
In the mouth it welcomes first with clear acid, which is relatively quickly replaced by sweetness. Honey with beet syrup. On the other hand, the alcohol develops a lot of power, while a menthol-like freshness stuns the mouth. The consistency is pleasantly oily.
The finish is also quite satisfactory. After the chest cavity has warmed up nicely, the deafness quickly leaves the mouth again, the sweetness lingers much longer and remains as a memory for quite a while.
