    I would say a good start, and you realize that there are good barrels here, but you also notice that the whisky is just too young, but in a few years this could be really delicious stuff, potential is there, and like me now better than the standard of Schliersee.
    • Nose
      Has a distinct beer flavor, plus strong lemon, results in Radler. Beautiful honey sweetness, and yellow fruits like banana, peach, pear, honeydew melon and some pineapple. I also find a nice hint of vanilla, as well as notes of freshly cut grass. The alcohol view is well integrated, but stands out from time to time. The oak is barely noticeable in the nose.
    • Taste
      Easy onset, watery mouthfeel. Now the oak is suddenly here, that came unexpectedly, the yellow fruits and vanilla are interwoven in the oak, also roast and malt aromas are there. Will always peppery, which is also due to the alcohol.
    • Finish
      Short. Dominated by oak and pepper, the alcohol is noticeable with a cooling menthol note.

    Fruity, Fresh, Grassy. Interesting Fassreifungen, which give a pleasant Nosing, but in the taste but then quite relax, not to mention the finish.

    Interesting, has a Williams pear flavor.

  8. childofbodom696 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: you smell the character of the NewMakes, very fruity and sweet, malty, green apples, pears, quite exotic like mangos, nice vanilla and some oak
    Taste: mild, lots of caramel, fresh fruit as previously smelled, some fresh citrus notes, vanilla, nice spicy oak, some nutmeg and a cappuccino note
    Finish: medium length, slightly nutty, spicy oak and vanilla

  9. pippo g scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    light, fruity and malty. the typical young Brennereicharakter comes through, however, the alcohol in the nose is very pronounced. Malt, fresh pears and yellow apples. Low-key barrel and quite one-dimensional.

    In the mouth fruity malt, slightly mineral and fresh spice.

    Short, refreshing finish

  10. redsnapper scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    It's perfectly alright. The price is typically German. But with this investment and this young age of the distillery that's perfectly ok.
    The "one" is great. But still has room for improvement.

      Floral and fruity. Banana, pear, pineapple. Very pleasant. Hardly sherry, though. A little vanilla. Malty.
    • Taste

      Mild, sweet. He also reminds me a bit of a fruit maker. Can I remember the "white dog", that was raspberry spirit at its best. Of course, he can not hide the youth, but I do not find this metallic taste as with others. Delicious. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Mid-length finish without attracting much attention. Maybe a little chocolate.
