Much better than expected although I already tasted many good whiskies from this distillery before. A lovely peated whisky from Germany. Recommended.
Light, fresh and definitely peated at first nosing. The peat aroma is not very intensive and accompanied by citrus fruits and vanilla.
The mouthfeel is much more powerful than expected after the nose. You can really feel the 60.8% alcohol content. Sweet, peaty, spicy, grainy and alcoholic. Wow this is tasty, I really love it. Hot alcohol, pepper, barley and lovely peat when swallowed.
The finish is dominated by peppery aromas. Slightly oaky and peaty with liquorice.
The aftertaste remains clean and pleasant.
