Whisky Reviews for Emill Kraftwerk

  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Phew, what can I say ... in short, I would have expected a lot more here. So with the awards (e.g. Gold Medal Whisky National 2019 (whisky ambassador),
    Award Whisky Guide 2020, Gold Medal World Spirits Award 2020) and the price, my expectation was already significantly higher than for a "normal" German whisky. Unfortunately (for me) he did not meet that by far.

    - still very clearly alcohol in smell and taste, not well integrated, looks quite young
    - could not convince me in comparison to other Scottish NAS whiskys with a high% filling strength, nor in comparison to high-quality German bottlings (e.g. from the resin) or even justify the high price
    • Nose
      relatively subtle, alcohol clearly noticeable, no distinctive aromas, a bit of malt and oak, but if you have tried a few Scots beforehand, unusual fruity aromas such as currants and rhubarb emerge, but youth can still be clearly felt
    • Taste
      very strong, strong onset, burns clearly on the lips and mouth without water, urgently needs water, acidic fruity, currant, some sweetness (maple syrup), malt, oak, the wood aroma persists in the palate for a long time
    • Finish
      medium-long, strong finish;
      long dry oak-heavy finish

  2. Dagobert scored this whisky 65 points Connoisseur

    Scheibel Frucht - Trocken - fires are a hit,
    e.g. Old plum etc.
    However, the whisky is a throat cleaner. Scheibel shouldn't burn whisky.
