  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I think the incredibly oily, tasty and horny!
    • Nose
      Very dense and interwoven. First, a cooling mint immediately peels out. It's hard to guess that this is the alcohol that does not bother otherwise. Now it's getting really sweet ... honey, vanilla, malt, even the leather note, which is just playing along. This oily smell reminds me of coconut oil. But really. With some time in the glass is actually berry. The sweetened berry flavor, quickly overtakes the peach and the honeydew melon. So blind, at first I would not have thought of a Sherry Cask. But great nose.
    • Taste
      Really nice sweet start. First thought ... wheat beer. Sweet berry jam. Cold mint tea with sugar. Very, very oily. Also in taste coconut oil. And a lot of vanilla. Some caramel with nougat cream. At the second sip more sweet fruit of pears and mirabelles. Everything but super oily and lasting creamy.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Brutally oily and sweet, fruity. A little spicy, but goes down to the sweetness. You really have to swallow 2x, because so much salivation occurs.
