    Quite a pleasant whiskey. However, like the original Owen Albdinkel whiskey, it can't really convince me. That could well be due to the raw material spelled, which has a very special note.
    • Nose
      Ripe fruits, bananas and pineapples. Yeast dough and vanilla. Coconut can be seen in the background. Over time, citrus aromas can also be found. A slight sharpness is also noticeable. In addition to the fruit sweetness, there is also a spicy sweetness.
    • Taste
      A bitter sweetness in the beginning. This is followed by vanilla and ripe banana, underlaid with hot ginger. Spicy notes come to the fore. There is also a certain bitter note.
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is rather medium in length. In the main, the somewhat indefinable, spicy sweetness remains.

    On 3 June 2017, the Whisky Stube took a five-year-old whisky to a converted Jamaican rum barrel at the Berghof Rabel distillery. Here, in cooperation with Thoams Rabel and Küheerei Wilhem Eder, an idea of Mr. Brzeske was realized. The selection of the barrel will, according to the opinion of the three, deliver an excellent and interesting result.
    November 2017 = The whisky is now 5¾ years old. The Albdinkel whisky used here is a special feature in itself, which is emphasized by the finishing in the rum barrel again.

    Jim Murry's Whisky Bible 2019 says so
    Whisky Stube Spirit of the Cask OWEN Albdinkel Jamaica rum barrel finish, distilled on 01/2012, bottled on 11/2017 (90)
    n21.5 untidy, but some acacia honey sails to the rescue ... and it needed to;
    t23 huge delivery with the rum having a bigger say in the morning Jamaican cask having a very long time. Enthralling esters spin off the sugars and honey, the spice squawking like a parrot on a pirate's shoulder;
    f22.5 excellent spices and oils; a slow fade of heather honey, combining beautifully with the spices, vanilla, mallow and red liquorice; b23 the spirit is not exactly faultless. But a stupendous rum cask has generated a treasure chest of untold honeyed riches.

    First storage in German lime oak, then American white oak (ex-bourbon cask), then relocated through the whisky room for 6 months in an ex-Jamaican rum barrel.

    Cereals: Organic Albdinkel
