  1. Wum scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    This one has something special. I liked it. You should pay the necessary attention to this whisky, it gradually builds up in the glass.

      Smoky, tart ripe pear peel, orange peel, mint, interesting, after a while a slight vanilla sweetness, after a while juicy orange and ripe raspberries

  3. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For me hardly any aromas in the nose and alcoholic sharp on the palate. Bitter finish, dry. Maybe even some bitter oak.

  5. ChrisKo scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Subtle smoke comes along with a sweet fruitiness (orange and a little pear).
    • Taste
      There is more smoke in the taste and a slight sharpness from the alcohol. It gets slightly bitter and woody but still has a subtle fruitiness.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and leaves a slight dryness with a pleasant sweetness.

  6. Official tasting note

    Product information "Project Two Feingeist"
    Single Malt Whisky - 10 Years in Cask

    Distilled and matured in Scotland, bottled in Germany.

    The oldest licensed distillery in the Scottish Highlands mainly produces single malt whisky without any smoke. Every now and then, however, a neat smoky spirit makes it into the barrel.

    We bottle a 10 year old single malt whisky called Ruadh Maor, which was allowed to ripen in a former sherry barrel for added complexity. With 46.2% vol. Bottled alcohol, not colored and not cold filtered.

    Highlights:
    • Distilled at Secret Highland Distillery in 2009
    • Bottled in 2020
    • Sherry finish
    • Peated
    • Only 129 bottles, individually numbered

    Tasting Notes

    Smell: Pleasant peat smoke, floral with heather, fruits like orange and ripe red berries.

    Taste: Strong, spicy peat smoke in harmony with a slightly creamy sweetness, citrus fruits and berries.

    Finish: Medium-long, sweet and smoky, orange with light fruit acid and delicate spiciness.
