    The whisky is no match for being exclusively bottled for XY ...

    In fact, the bottle came to me perfectly, not like some book with various "dog-ears" etc. In the bottle carton - I was positively surprised ...

    In terms of taste, others can certainly write better and more flowery notes. When I tasted it, I thought of a happy grinning squirrel running around on the beach with the red wine glass in his hand as the ecumenical church notes topple the salty book in the polyacrylic chair down the cliff.

    In that sense, let him (or she?) Taste you. Notes are subjective and a matter of taste. And we will not get XY out of the Whisk (e) ymarkt with a negative review here.

    One may think of amazonian businessmanship as one might want - this whisky is no match for having been bottled for this group. He does not deserve a boycott, it would be a wonderful experience lost. He has reminded me several times of the great Springbank Burgundy - for me still a benchmark whisky in terms of red wine maturation. Only this Bowmore has a bit more smoke. And that is very harmoniously connected with the sweet and sour fruit, everything takes place at a very high level.

    • Nose
      Even while pouring in, I get a foreboding of what's to come - a wonderful fruit compote of red berries. And the first nose confirms that promptly. And immediately there is a nice mild and not too intrusive smoke, which sets him apart quite clearly from his colleagues on the South Coast Riege. Sweet and spicy like a crackling log fire with aromatic fat woods. And over it simmered in an old copper kettle the aforementioned compote from all sorts of berries and ripe bananas, already set on the bottom of the kettle lightly. It is sweetened with dark caramelized cane sugar and a vanilla bar. From the open window blowing harsh sea air with a nice salty spice. The French barrels are noticeable by slightly scorched oak wood, but hold back pretty much whether the smoke. All this flatters the nose and I can not wait to try it too.
    • Taste
      Here the smoke is much stronger, spicy-sweet and underlaid with much fruit, he dresses the whole mouth. Again, a lot of robust and lightly baked berry compote, which starts at the beginning with a beautiful vanilla sweetness, but in the course of more and more sour flavors to light days. The berries are accompanied by juicy grapefruit and limes, some orange zest and again ripe sweet bananas. The fruit acid begins to tingle on the tongue, the pre-occupancy of the barrels with red wine has done a nice job. The French oak barrels can show much more profile here, with beautiful dark spicy roasting aromas they provide with their strong tannins for a pleasant chocolate bitterness, which does not deter, but everything rounds off nicely. The alcohol is sustainable, albeit with a cool crisp freshness always noticeable.
    • Finish
      The sweet fruit does not linger for too long, along with a nice spicy vanilla sweetness, it disappears quite quickly. What lasts long is the aromatic sweet smoke, which over time becomes more and more dry and ashen.

    • Nose
      89 89
      Fruity, fresh with plenty of red berries, spices, wood, herbs, anise and of course smoke. Over time, coffee and mint are added. Nice nose!
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nice fruity and quite tart with a decent load of wood. There are typical red wine notes, of course, smoke, as well as red rubber animals and cocoa.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long, warming, wine, dark chocolate, mint, oak and again the herbs.
