    • Nose
      91 91
      The first nose is initially filled with an intense herbal note, green and a lot of meadow. These are turning more and more into yellow fruits with a deep sweetness. The whole thing seems almost sugary and you get the feeling that it gets more and more intense until at some point traces of banana and apricot appear in honey. You can really speak of a great fragrance here. Every now and then you notice a light alcohol and always some herbs. After a while, some apple notes and more and more grains and vanilla appear here and there. You almost do not get your nose out of the glass. Really very exciting.
    • Taste
      90 90
      First, the whisky occupies the entire palate. Warms up uncommon, the sharpness is not necessarily noticeable. But the alcohol immediately shows its effect. I have honey notes again and the herbs are back, so the nose did not promise too much. The refill American Hogshead definitely keeps the whisky one of the lighter, apple flavors, and with a slight sweetness and a hint of wood, it shows its higher age. It covers nothing but runs nicely in parallel. Then clearly vanilla pushes into the foreground with some citrus. A bit of an interplay and certainly with an acceptable complexity. Some water increases the intensity. A bit of honey banana stays on the palate with a refreshing touch.
    • Finish
      89 89
      In the finish is like I think the wood then more noticeable. It remains relatively long and builds up a certain dryness. An apple component remains nice to continue to taste.
