  3. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The first moment may be a bit daunting due to the machine oil note, but over time a variety of fruity-spicy aromas emerge in combination with chocolate. The alcohol can be clearly felt, but somehow goes well with the drop. Exciting and delicious "whiskey".
    • Nose
      88 88
      Machine oil and gum at the beginning go into cherry, cinnamon and barbecue sauce. It is becoming increasingly fruity with berries (raspberries?), Caramel chocolate and garden herbs.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Cinnamon and machine oil, then spices, berries, chocolate in connection with strong alcohol.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long finish with chocolate, spiciness, clearly noticeable alcohol and spiciness. After a long time, the machine oil reappears.

  4. 11insomnium scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Clearly reminiscent of an old single grain sherry cask whiskey. After a while in the glass, a nice and flowery mustiness comes through.
    • Nose
      Sweet toffee, full and dark dried fruits, fine smoky notes, Christmas spices, coffee, later more musty leather, plum jam and beeswax, some currants
    • Taste
      Brown sugar, spicy oak, tart, astringent, some pepper, dark dried fruits, association with rum
    • Finish
      Long finish with lots of spices, sweet fruits and a little bitter dryness

    well well well,

    this is quite funky!
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sugared Popcorn, Caramel, Vanilla, BBQ meat, smoked ham, cherries, nutmeg, clove, beefstock, some hints of smoke
    • Taste
      83 83
      Here the smoke is less, quite impactful, cherries, chocolate, candies, coffee, sawed wood.
    • Finish
      81 81
      relatively short and easy, follows the taste and then dies pleasantly away with a small tingling sensation

      Vanilla, burnt caramel, mocca, barbeque, cherry.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Surprising calm burn, light smoke, cherry, barbeque, dark but sweet.
    • Finish

      Simple, lingering, light smoke, not very special.

    Smell quite interesting, but I can't handle this taste.
    Reminds me of Sanits Dreifaltigkeit
