    Conclusion:

    The data from the malt have raised high expectations that the malt unfortunately cannot meet. The alcohol is clearly noticeable and has an extremely hot effect, even with water these notes cannot be tamed. Behind it it is very bitter and superimposes the beautiful fruity and creamy notes that are always in the background. I also think he's a little too young and there are metallic notes. He lacks the complexity a little. With water, the complexity is significantly reduced. Overall, unfortunately, it doesn't quite meet my taste.

    My rating system:
    100-95: Exceptional whiskys
    80-94: top whisky
    50-79: standard whisky
    0-49: flops
    • Nose
      The first thing you will notice is a distinctly sharp alcoholic note, which you have to get used to, followed by creamy, sweet moments after vanilla pudding / creme brûlée and fruity moments after oranges, peaches, apricots, gooseberries, light grapes, papaya, guava, light ones Wood notes of fresh oak sawdust in a carpenter's workshop, dried tobacco leaves, cinnamon with water show light sulphurous notes of burned fireworks, slightly metallic notes
    • Taste
      Here, too, the alcohol really gives a boost, a bit spicy, freshly ground chilli flakes, white pepper, followed by more fruity notes, which however remain clearly in the background, peaches, apricot gooseberries, light currants, papaya, guava and fresh oranges, light grapes, with water there are even more sweeter notes of caramel, honey, cinnamon and dark chocolate for men
    • Finish
      Very long but bitter finish, which immediately reminds of nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, Brazil nuts, espresso notes and dark chocolate with an alcohol content of at least 95%, with water there are significantly more fruity notes and the bitter notes move more into the background

  4. Moritz did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Blindtasting - Advent Calendar 2020 - Door 2

    Nose: Quite sharp, plenty of steam, alcoholic. Dark spice, sweetness subtly resonates.

    Taste: Very strong start, almost bubbly, a lot of oomph & alcohol. Sweetness overtakes the spice, but looks a bit artificial.

    Departure:
    Long, alcohol properly warms & numbs the mouth somewhat. Minty, herbal, sweetness is almost gone.
