  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Kracht well, I would have estimated at more than 53.2%. No wonder in complexity, but for 10J completely OK, and for CS, 60-bottle sherry minifish and the nice features are also 65 € just so clear (so purely tasted I would rather 45-50 appropriate).
    • Nose
      pure: sweet with roasted aromas, speculaas, sugar cookies (you notice the alcohol, but it does not bother), over time stale smell, musty straw, forest soil, broken tree trunk; diluted sweetness disappears almost completely, it becomes kräutrig (or rather krautig? - hands after weeding), cumin, a touch of marjoram ... pure is better
    • Taste
      Pure: oily, spicy, cocoa / chocolate syrup (very intense, mouth-filling), raisins, oak, with water, the sweetness is weak again and it comes in a tart herb and hay pure, harmonizes but not really with the cocoa, the sharpness I do not get meaningfully thinned out (before he gets watery), so rather pure & sharp
    • Finish
      long, hot, dry, cocoa, sugar beet syrup, coffee

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet, dark sugar, some exotic fruit, alcohol evaporates over time, cocoa, chocolate, and sometimes a musty smell of stable.
    • Taste
      Very oily on the tongue, sweet, like raisin and dried plum cake, some peppery notes, caramel, nougat chocolate
    • Finish
      Pretty long, mild, sweet, cake crumbs, again nougat chocolate.

  3. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Cocoa with milk chocolate. Slightly metallic. A heavy portion of alcohol, but with time flies. Possibly. a bit of smoke (but could also be the alk). In the background a few dark fruits. Over time, cocoa (in the form of powder) becomes more and more dominant.
    • Taste
      Pleasant start. Slightly oily with dark (dry) fruits, maple syrup and again cocoa. Even softer and softer with water.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Here the youth is relatively strong. The alcohol is not well integrated and burns. With water, the finish is a little flatter and it adds a slight Parfumnote.
