    An absolute dream for me, I would not have a bottle in reserve, I would also pay the 125, - €. Very good barrel selection from the Brühler Whiskyhaus

    A little bastard - but I like the sulfur note here, because it is not dominant, but rather adds to the complexity.
    • Nose
      Tingling in the nose. A very fine, dirty plume of sulfur rises first from the glass. Reminds of a small fireworks display. Immediately afterwards comes a strong, sticky sweetness, like burnt caramel. After the first sip I can clearly smell nougat and turkish delight (Turkish delight).
    • Taste
      Cover the tongue intensely. Creamy mouthfeel. Briefly malty sweet at the beginning, but then the sulfur brings a light muff to Waldboden. On the palate it becomes drier with dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. It stays a little "dirty" until the end.

    Gorgeous ...: love:
    • Nose
      Cola ... stop: D

      You bad, horny, thick device. : Love:
      A very fat, dense, dirty note greets me first. My first thought was marinating grilled cheese with motor oil and dark cherries. Sour, dark-bodied, dark berries. Blackberry comes first. Blueberries and dates follow. A hint of smoke blows through the glass. A hint of bacon is there. In addition still damp tobacco. If you let that stand a bit, the dark grapes are nice and bring a certain wine smell with them. Alcohol is very much averse to the percentages. But trumps now neat caramel and dark chocolate. A hint of apple cider vinegar joins in. Bisserl Balsamico and a nice herbal liqueur note.
    • Taste
      Thicker, full on. Like the herbal liqueur. The 60.9% bring neat power and bring neat volume. I do not give it water. It tastes just like that. This dirty, oily, fatty taste, makes me full right now. In the taste then slightly bitter almonds and dark chocolate. The dark berries and juicy grapes are also at the start. In the taste, too, this delicate smoky note. Bacon-wrapped dates. Cherry sauce over burnt pudding. The second sip comes wet wood and again the tobacco. Has something of espresso with some caramel.
    • Finish
      Long and strong and neat fat. You can chew it. Toasted malt, herbs and syrupy. Dark chocolate in combination with this dirty, thick wine note.

    Here is the wine barrel already (too?) Dominant. To be honest, I almost had to spill it on my first try because it was too extreme for me. This time with a few drones I can drink it quite well. Overall, nothing for all days. You can give water, but you do not have to.
    • Nose
      starts very vinous, sour, lemon peel, a little wood, a hint of smoke is above all, wine gum, rather dry than sweet, pickled cherry, a little caramel, with time, the Laddie comes through, but need a bit, after the first sip but sweeter, slightly bubbly
      with water: creamier, more caramel, more pleasant and filigree, you can do
    • Taste
      oily, sulfur, raisins, very fat, darker than expected, chocolate, nuts, roasted aromas, very heavy, some licorice with chocolate coating, you can chew it, a lot of barrel, but you can still guess the Laddie, not wrong, but already very little
      with water: wow it makes up with water, starts smoothly with a vinous flavor explosion, the basic aromas are the same, a little more wood, drier behind
    • Finish
      behind very vinous, clearer is now the wine aroma, it is now rather red fruits, Camembert, very interesting, medium long
      with Waser the aftertaste is a bit drier, woodier

    Big, bold and cask driven. Sulphury but pretty nice!
