    This dram shows that it doesn't always take old age or sherry to be fun. Maybe a little bit of luck, but who cares if something so smooth comes out of it. A single cask at this price with such a profile? You have to travel back in time to, for example, Benriach 90s bourbon cas maturation!
    • Nose
      90 90
      A palette of tropical fruits jumps straight at you. Grapes, lemon, fermented pineapple and / or apricots. It is sweet on the nose but not really vanilla but rather fruit sugar or jam-sweet
    • Taste
      89 89
      A lot of peppery but a lot from the nose is well transported by the high alcohol strength. Certainly also scope for water, but I would be afraid to lose something. I feel a bit of smoke but marginally, probably more from toasting. Oak bitterness also present in the second sip.

      Only at the medium-long finish you notice that it is not older but definitely set. A little chewing activates the fruits again and an association of student food with me

    Tilo, you're doing really well!
    • Nose
      a bit pointed at the beginning, but luckily it flies away quickly. Then there it is, the tangy, tart and fresh Teaninich character. Lemon sweets, sour pineapple and fresh mint. The hogshead added some caramel and dry seasoning
    • Taste
      here too the citrus note above everything, brittle texture, pear peels, a little salty and great grassy-dry notes, with water even a slight chocolate
    • Finish
      dry, crisp and malty-warm

    • Nose
      The whisky is presented in the form of citrus fruits. Lemon, grapefruit, a hint of blood orange. A hint of fermented fruit mixes in. It shows a pleasant acidity.
      The alcohol is present and stings a bit in the nose, but without becoming uncomfortable. With a little time in the glass, the blood orange takes a step back and it gets a little sweeter. Very promising.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it lies creamy on the taste buds, salivation begins. The barrel strength suits him well and shows the alcohol well integrated. The acidity of the yellow fruit continues, the sweetness is only hinted at, but takes the acidity off the top. I like that. Some grass notes are hidden behind this game of flavors. Nice combination. A little oak seasoning announces itself.
    • Finish
      The finish reveals the barrel wood. The bitterness paired with the blood orange and a clearly noticeable dryness in the mouth let the whisky fade away. He stays for a while, I would say medium. Together with the good price-performance ratio, this is a recommendation for a beautiful straight bourbon barrel. It's fun.

      Some vanilla, some fruit. Everything a bit weak
    • Taste
      86 86
      Alcohol noticeable in the mouth, somewhat fruity.
    • Finish
      86 86
      More taste in the finish. Medium length.

    Very well done by Tilo!

    Very generously given to me for his tour at Annandale Distillery! I managed to decant a few bottles for myself and wow.

    Nose: Soft Vanilla, light floral and fauna notes coming through the a hint of citrus.

    Palate: Refreshing, light and mellow with a slight pepperyness.

    Finish. Nice and smooth with a whisp of vanilla mixed with oak and silky tones. Lemon and Potpourri.

    The fact is its quite high in cask strength but its ridiculous how you don't feel like you're drinking it at that high! I dare say if you added water it would probably ruin the dram!

    Delicately balanced! For me I'm not a fan of floral notes but this was something special!

    Keep it up!
