    If the beautiful fruity notes from the nose had found their way to the palate, I would have had one or two more points. I would have just wished for a bit more berry fruitiness in the taste. It's a shame for me, but the malt can only help to a limited extent. What the barrel can't produce, the whisky can't transport either. I would be interested in which wine was matured in the hogshead?

    However, the PLV is really good and is included in the evaluation accordingly. 49.99 € for a 9 year old full maturation in a wine barrel is probably not often found these days.
    • Nose
      86 86
      red berries, plum must, glue note, earthiness / moist forest floor, oak notes. Very neat for a 9 year old.
    • Taste

      Unfortunately, not much of the fruit notes remain on the nose. But the oak now comes through with a pleasant, peppery sharpness, the moist forest floor remains. In the background you can taste the wine with notes of cassis and tannins. It was definitely not a fruity or sweet red wine. Rather a dark, dry and tannin-rich representative of its kind.
    • Finish
      83 83
      short to medium long. Dark chocolate shows up. A slight bitterness, which doesn't bother us yet. The notes of the red wine barrel also remain present.
