    The 3 Series surprises with (tropical) fruits on the nose, which is promising. It has a slight drop in taste, but is still good to drink. For me personally, it gets better and more pleasant with a few drops of water. It's worth experimenting with water here.
    Otherwise a successful whisky, which is particularly convincing in the nose.
    • Nose

      minimal smoke first, followed by something fruity. The smoke evaporates quickly, but remains subtly in the background. The fruity goes towards light stone fruit (apricots, plums) and green, slightly sour apple. There are also tropical fruits such as bananas and pineapple. The longer he can breathe, the sweeter the fruity becomes. The bananas then go in the direction of overripe bananas, which is meant positively. A little vanilla is added. The 50 vol% are well integrated and rarely sting the nose. Something floral and minty is still far in the background, which turns into a certain flavor (anise) in the course. In general, there is always a green, sour note that is well integrated. The aromas of summery freshness and tropical fruits can whet your mood.
      With a few drops of water: it becomes even more fruity and the vanilla aroma appears more clearly.
    • Taste

      first very gently, then push the 50 vol% properly, which leads to a creamy-oily texture in the mouth. The fruits are present, but not quite as clearly distinguishable as in the nose.
      With a few drops of water: significantly more fruity, even with a little water it is not so bitter out the back. So I personally like him better.
    • Finish
      78 78
      The finish is retained for a long time with a certain spice and a slightly bitter aftertaste (like a bitter walnut skin).
      With a few drops of water: an oak wort is preserved for a long time, and a black pepper breeze is added. This slight sharpness did not appear without water. Very late I still have the feeling of smoke / ash - but is somehow difficult to grasp.
      Also interesting: the smoke or a cold, wet ash can be seen best in the empty glass. The longer you smell it, the more it swings into burned-in plastic.
