      Appearance: Champagne and lighter. First of all a lot of thin legs, then even thinner, tear-prone legs to pearl necklace with very fast running.

      Nose: white wine, very superficial. Sour, not bourbony, ne, bourbonlastig is the opposite. Here is nothing but white wine. Unfortunately, it's still pretty flat after all. A certain tart trail towards textile dust still. + W for the time being unpleasant with a bit of gall (I had already often times). Flat but soon - unfortunately as well as the rest again - pretty much off. Detergent with fragrant fragrance. With> 2ml of water more (!!) actually some bourbon.
    • Taste
      Oh, here it rips a nice bright - fruity, sweet lemonade again something out. Still too little water taken. Despite flooding it still scratchy.
    • Finish
      Oak wort in good dosage. Some of the aftertaste cheap wine gums. Beeswax? Carnauba wax? With significantly more water of untreated matjes - herring! (Not with vinegar or something). Daisy?!

      Conclusion: Since the limo in the taste does not help. I finally diluted to cloudiness and it remains flat in the nose, citrus, scratchy and short. Maybe I am sensitive today? (For the time being) failed. Unfortunately.

      31.12.19: Unfortunately everything stops like this. No day form. But the slightly unpleasant dusty note with detergent smell seems to be the bourbon - just not one I like. I was so happy with Firstfill Bourbon at the age of 9 ... and Glen Moray ... well. Missing steps are allowed.

  3. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Sweet, malted, fried, marshmallow, apricot, vanilla. (83 pts)
    Taste: They look very sharp, they are nice razors. Pancake fruit brandy (apricots, strawberries). Creamy aftertaste. (83 pts)
    Points: 83
    Summary: A shot number 9 at the Whisky Festival in Radebeul 2019, another tasting now because I got a shot so big I took half at home. Simpler but warm. And another newly tasted distillery, but it's a chance!

    Glen Moray character, crisp 1st fill Bourbon maturation, full aroma despite youth - top filling with super PLV!

      Fresh, grassy and malty. Lemongrass, vanilla-caramel fudge, alcohol is amazingly well integrated and brings a freshness and something crispy tingly with it. Over time, freshly cut apple pieces are added and very subtle peanuts. On the nose the youth is still most evident due to the "maltiness" and the lack of oak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy like cream toffee and that's how it tastes. In addition some cake batter, peanut butter, malt and baked but still juicy apples. Sweet, juicy and creamy. The 57% are noticeable but not annoying and gently carry a full (but not extremely complex) aroma into the finish.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Surprisingly long for the young age, with a nice apple juice sweetness, a little citric acid and vanilla, oak is now also there, very subtle with a little cappuccino aroma.
