    To defy every prejudice a real whisky in the glass. A very delicious whisky that is ideal for me as an appetizer to a nice dinner. The facets of flavors are really rich and the variety between sweet and spicy are incredibly interesting. The sweetness is not to be confused with a classic sherry whisky. The Amarone finish has developed much more pronounced acidity and makes this "The Westfalian" to an elegant and delicious whisky which makes it very fresh.
    • Nose
      89 89
      In the nose you immediately have a beguiling fruit and clear sweetness. Add to that a nice sugary almond note, something nutty, then pastry or better fresh thick dough. A slight alcohol note is also heard, but evaporates significantly after some time in the open glass and is well tolerated. After some time, I would also add spices, light polish and even floral notes. It takes time and that's wonderful.

      Addendum: If you leave the empty glass a bit, you have a wonderful wine note.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the mouth you first taste a really full fruitiness, I would say clear red fruits. Then the whisky becomes spicy, some wood is combined with a fine acid, plus some coffee and tobacco. Simply rougher notes, a little bitterness and dark tones. In between, however, a sweetness appears again and again in the interplay with a touch of pepper. The whisky has a great body and can be enjoyed superbly pure. The much higher drinking strength is ideal for this Amarone finish.
    • Finish
      88 88
      In the finish, the Westfalian plays the spice card, a medium sweetness remains and the pepper dominates a bit. Wood is clearly present and noticeable.
