  1. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A difficult malt. It needs patience an water. A lot of water.
    • Nose
      Alcohol, mint, lemon, white wine, butterscotch.
    • Taste
      First impression: hot, hot, hot. Not much fruit, aggressive arrival. Needs water and time to settle down. Then i get some pineapple and tangerine.
    • Finish
      Fruits, sweet barley, chili, quite long finish due to the 59,8 % abv

    That's exactly what I was looking for. Open up and a smirk on your face when you smell and drink.
    • Nose
      Today you don't want detailed notes. Easy, open the bag, look forward and enjoy ...

      The color is a bright, shiny gold tone.

      That's what I wished for. Shortly smelled and a nice, creamy sweetness pours out of the glass. Has something of wine cream. There is some spice in the background and a slightly acidic citrus note. On the whole, the Kollechle is an ideal couch whisky for me. Sniff it and just enjoy the smell without looking for flavors. The alcohol cools the nose pleasantly and brings some mint.
    • Taste
      Fresh, peppery start. The alcohol bizarre on the tongue. Then comes a sweet white wine sweetness. Goes easily without water. The alcohol fits nicely into the overall picture. A tart, somewhat dry sweetness spreads and covers the mouth. Has something refreshing about it. He will accompany me to the balcony more often on warm evenings.
      With the second sip, even tropical fruits follow and spread.
    • Finish
      The long finish is only a little dry and tart - spicy. But is then replaced by a dusty, tropical fruit sweetness. Which stays really long.
