  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It was an honor for me!
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Light amber

      Runs very oily into the glass

      Nose:
      Starts very oily and with tropical fruits. Also a bit dusty. A bit of eucalyptus and a trace of stale WD-40. Candied orange sprinkled with brown sugar. Soft apricots and a little white chocolate.
      With a little time in the glass, a delicate lavender note develops. Plum jam in yeast dough. The bitten Raffaello. A sweetness builds up towards Cola Haribo bottles. A trace of lovage, dry old leather. Looks more musty now. Very cool and varied. You can smell it forever and always find something new.

      The empty glass smells of dried fruit sweetness and a little lovage. Also has something from Gewürztraminer.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. Then comes the dry, bitter wood. More honey now. The orange becomes more sour. Fresh plums and yeast dough. A trace of cinnamon joins it. Raspberry spirit and some chocolate with almond slivers. Sour pear peel.
    • Finish
      Short to medium length. Very creamy and woody bitterness. The tropical comes back in waves. A fine smoke sticks to the palate.
