    This is interesting stuff! Whisky from Austria named ‘Wiesky’ because of the familyname and also with a slight wink to the traditional whisky industry. They claim they don’t want to copy the traditional style of whisky. Therefore i think to appreciate this stuff it’s in it’s place to have an open mind for it.

    Quadruple distillation truly gives this ‘wiesky’ a unique taste. It is very light and delicate. Best to be drunk from a distillers glass with a more narrow opening then the regular glencairns, to be able to enjoy the full range of flavours.
    • Nose
      It’s very light. Needs a single drop (really not more) of water to open up and reveal it’s full range of flavours. Quite a lot of Citrus fruits, campfire, burnt wood and vanilla. Somehow it appears to be quite mature although you know it’s quite young stuff. It’s well balanced, no sharp edges. There is definitely a quicker maturation with this. It needs time in the glass. The longer it’s In the glass, the more it gives. After a while dairy butter and sweet Candy appear.
    • Taste
      Burnt wood, a slight grassy note. Rye and vanilla. It’s light and delicate again. Slightly to watery i guess. With a higher abv it would give a more full bodied experience.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Vanilla, there is some licorice and light white peper in the finish.

      To sum it all up:
      It’s very interesting stuff! The Wieser family is on to something! I definitely want to try their other expressions.

      In a short while i will review all there other expressions available in NL: American oak, Sherry wood, Pinot Noir and French oak.
