The combination of flavors is at least unusual and has a repulsive effect in the meantime. He looks very restless, it definitely is not my case, because in the meantime these missing notes keep flashing, and not just in the nose.
Notes from a blind tasting.
Like almost 60%, he really didn't feel. I am not revising my first rating (76-78-85) now that the other glass has given a much better overall impression, not that I understand that. Somehow, the rather idiosyncratic New Make comes into effect in Eisch.
A very strange nose right after pouring it out. Mixed pickles meet vegetables, plus smoke towards the cowshed, freshly baked crusty bread and other roasted flavors behind it, after about a minute of sherry wort and dark fruit for the first time. The initial density flattens off extremely. Now he gets a break. After a few minutes, the barrel seems to have completely taken over, burnt cane sugar and strong spicy aromas paired with farm notes, movement brings about a mustiness that is difficult to describe, reminiscent of spoiled vegetables and Harzer cheese. The alcohol teases something. It warms up even more, first Havana cigar smoke, then extreme cowshed again, then suddenly it becomes pleasantly resinous and sweet, burnt caramel and butter, very full.
In a counter test with another glass (Glencairn, previously Eisch Jeunesse Sensis Plus), it looks much more harmonious, the oblique notes seem to be erased. The cowshed is still there, but now there is also a campfire, but all the vegetables and the Harz roller have been blown away.
Very oily and dense, the vegetables and farm notes also set the tone here, together with sweetened espresso, the alcohol comes late but vigorously, menthol to the rear. Here, too, the vegetables are missing with the Glencairn, or are only present in traces.
The finish is quite long, it warms up significantly, initially sweetness and menthol dominate before barrel acid, tannins and ash take over the field.
