  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Definitely interesting, respect for the daring experiment, extraordinary and certainly not bad, but no whisky that convinces me of the given basic flavors.
    • Nose
      Wow, I've never had anything of that kind, there was such an alcoholic foam that you could squirt into your mouth, it smelled the same, the basic note is sweet, but also slightly sour, you actually have the feeling It tingles a bit like champagne, with vanilla behind it, but the finish definitely dominates here and it was time for Kristie to fill it in, if I had to add the fruity note, I would say quince, a little bit towards jam, yes that's just fine, in fact a little bit of wine sauce for steamed noodles or new wine / cider
    • Taste
      here it goes on, wow, never tasted anything, even here quince, sweet and sour, creamy, vanilla, again this foam from then, has something slightly artificial, here again something new wine, yeast, relatively watery mouthfeel
    • Finish
      even here this champagne note, I call it that way, getting drier, quite astringent, some vanilla, always comes back, medium long
