    The honey citrus finish picked up by cask aging makes this a distinct pleasure to drink. The nose is quite memorable with caramel quickly shifting to cotton candy then lemonade. The distinct sweet bitter citrus flavors make it memorable. The cask aging pops!

  5. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very well matured, fruity but still sparkling sweet malt.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Amazing mineral citrus sweetness, reminiscent of the splash of lemon cutting, limes are even better, including malty and oak-toned, some warehousemuff
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sparkling sweet onset, including vanilla and malty, the oak and the alcohol go well without being very dry
    • Finish
      90 90
      Warm, spicy, lemon peel, slightly dry and very long

  7. duerer79 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Today the whisky was only allowed to rest in the glass for fifteen minutes ...
    • Nose
      87 87
      Lemon, fruity, fruit salad, green pear, a dash of mint (alcohol), unripe pineapple, more fruit salad ...
    • Taste
      88 88
      Metallic, then sweetish. Berentzen Saurer apple. Then some oak comes through and it gets bitter. Oily consistency.

      2. Sip: bitter, slightly dry. Something sparkling. Again this Berentzen Saurer Apfel. Bitterness.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Short warming, then bitter. Dry. Enjoyable.

      Conclusion: Delicious but more than a glass in the evening you do not need it. Lasts very long "fed" by the persistent bitterness. Is there just some kohlrabi coming through at the end? ???? Yes, definitely kohlrabi, which was harvested too late. ????????

  10. Toffie76 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Fruits, wax, dust, old books , confectionary notes . Explosive taste at first , some vinegar, metallic taste, fine bitterness. Long in its form. Takes water well . Malty and quieter diluted. Evolves really strongly with oxydization, in a good way.
