    For the whisky I have to thank my dad! Great refill sherry keg, that's what it tastes like, has totally taken me away.

      Wow, that's nice and sweet over, the typical Laddie caramel muff, light caramel and custard, and then sweet red berries, massive, strawberry milkshake, creamy, slightly floral, some oak, raspberry, tobacco, I like in The nose was already very good, in the mouth he was really exciting, but then to smell it again after the first sip is really a dream, something grabs me there totally

      intense, all impressions from the nose at once, caramel, the custard, with raspberries, there was in childhood such a dessert, that went in the direction of tobacco, sweet, a hint of smoke, muff, almost liquorice, but somehow only almost, could also be the burnt caramel again, you can almost chew it, totally present

      sweet, now comes nuts, light acidity, almost sticky on the palate, raspberry puree, medium long

    In the nose - unpriced - at first quite crazy: Modrig, putrid, fermented. After a first sip but then a completely different picture with great spice and fruit notes. A chameleon, I like it very much.

      Fermented red fruits, as if one holds the nose over old mason jars with cherries and plums. Moder, rotten wood. Something (pleasant) matches abrasion. Sting lightly in the nose - but only occasionally. Mature leather, fruity pipe tobacco. Vanilla, malt, sugar beet syrup.
      After a first sip once again smelled: Now come great spicy notes with curry powder, pepper, cardamom and vanilla pod.
    • Taste

      Very sweet at the beginning with raspberries and strawberry jam. From the beginning beautiful spice, which is very compatible with the sweet fruit. Also on the tongue curry powder, with mild pepper, paprika, cinnamon. Vanilla and a lot of honey. Fresh bread dough, over time wood chips from the workbench. After a while, a fresh breeze passes through Menthol.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long, dry, only slightly sweet and fruity, but with more spices, wood, dark chocolate and coffee beans.
