    What I see here is first potential. The product is pretty good for its two and a half years. The keg has certainly contributed a lot here, but he is not really oversherried. This is indeed difficult to do with the rating, but in my opinion anything over 80 would be too much goodwill.

      Young liquor in the first breath, in the second already PX all superimposed, strong on the spicy side. After being allowed to breathe for a few minutes, a few ripe pears push past the sherry, which in turn becomes rounder, softer and more buttery, and also sweeter with dried fruit. Warms are roasted aromas, he smells really burned, then later musty, stale white wine, corked.

      Starts drier than expected, the alcohol, on the other hand, is expected to be very impetuous, having lost its initial restraint. At the back he is still very cute. In the second sip he gets a bit uncomfortable, but that's not unexpected either. At the back are beautiful chocolate notes.

      The finish is quite short, mainly sweet and ends with a mixture of apple seeds and corked wine.

    Phew, how do you rate that now? Still no whiskey, but tastes better than some Scottish single malts that I've already drunk. I would like to have it evaluated in a blank test.

      wow, as the first massively caramel rises in my nose, behind it actually pushes directly Maggi or Lovage, the barrel is here solid, the basic character I recognize after this short maturation no longer, fat raisins, sweet, PX sherry stop , and again and again caramel flashes through, despite the strong barrel influence, he looks even young, what else at 30 months, after prolonged Verreichen I mean then easy to herauszuriechen the pears, with some time in the air he wins, the Maggi is then also gone, in the background then also some malt, some milk chocolate, with New Make has nothing to do, after the first sip, the caramel is increasingly in the direction of roasted nuts

      actually a touch of sulfur, fat sweet, oily, nuts, roasted aromas, raisins, wow, extremely nutty, milk chocolate, intense, totally delicious, wow, I did not expect that, great start, clearly there is still some youth, but that does not matter here at all and one does not expect otherwise with a malting fire ;-)

      the theme here is definitely nut, pleasantly fading, slightly tart, the mouth is slightly furry, medium long, behind the nose then rather slightly tart fruit in the foreground

    Nose: quite briefly, a very typical PX sherry sweetness, this goes very well with the malty note of the Brennereicharakters. Dark fruits, dried plums, sweet wine, some sweetened espresso and echoes of a not so old oak barrel. Almost like strong bread with plum jam.

    Mouth: this blend of malt and PX sherry fits surprisingly well together! The nose is very similar to the taste, in the mouth it lays like a lukewarm tea with a decent spoonful of honey on the tongue. Clear oak notes, which are saturated with sweet wine.

    Finish: the oak is very present! Warm, creamy, it remains relatively long throughout the mouth, with the dark fruit notes of dry oak spice soft and gradually fade away.

    Conclusion: yes you can drink that! In a positive sense. Not every day, not so much, but ahead of a PX sherry and you have a sweet-spicy interaction with a nice, pleasant Brennereicharakter
