    After I had the Alster in my glass yesterday, I had to go back to the barque.
    A great whisky, but I prefer the Alster ...
    First there is a bouquet of herbs in the nose, there is also juniper smoke. After some time, and a little water, he opens and the fruitiness leaves her room. Here we are on the red berries side.
    The taste becomes very spicy and the herbs remain present. Is that even a bit of a maggi note? The smoke fades into the background.
    However, the finish is dominated by juniper smoke and a sweetness comes to the fore, there is also a slightly bitter note from the wood.
    All in all a good malt. Another great representative of the Rotspon series.

  2. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A very individual whisky with a high recognition value. I like the nose the best, but also powerful and delicious in the mouth as well as unique. A nice change from the Scots. However, quite expensive.

    Very well balanced whisky.
    good balance between seasoning, fruity, sweetness and smoke.
    • Nose
      Light and subtly smoky. Spicy, fruity, light juniper berry.
    • Taste
      Despite wine barrel very creamy.
      spicy and fruity. still this fine juniper flavor.
    • Finish
      In the finish now comes this light sweet smoke again after he was barely noticeable in the taste. Shortly very noticeable a wood note (possibly pine) and then slowly fading away.
