A very powerful nose, smoke comes through vigorously. also red fruits. Slightly fermented blackberries. And lots of wood, but not sawdust or fresh wood, but old ones.
A slight hint of salt. Only a few cereal and malt notes in the background.
Also in the 1920 Blenders Glass hardly any alcohol in the nose, and I don't do that so often with over 50%.
Very well integrated alcohol, only slight sharpness when starting.
The port barrel is noticeable, as is the Laphroaig. Blackberries and black currants, slightly sour. The smoke is slightly greasy, but also has ashy aspects.
And above all, wood makes itself felt without malt striking bitter or spicy oak. Rather than chewing on a stick on a stick, wood without bitterness and spice.
Long, fruity with a slight sweetness and about the same acidity. Slight notes of ash, a little greasy.
Conclusion: a very convincing whisky. Ahead of his age from maturity, and here too, like the Westfalian from the Bowmore barrel, I would never have blindly guessed a German whisky (especially not at the age of 6).
With the two bottlings, Westfalian has definitely managed to arouse my interest in the future and keep an eye there
