    Tamnavulin Red Wine Cask (German Pinot Noir)
    Nose: Flowers, Red berries, Dried Fruits
    Taste: Red wine can definitely be found, oak, spices
    Overall: a bit more sting to this one compared to Tamnavulin Sherry Cask. Good value whisky, easy and enjoyable. The nose is really nice.

    Attention damn tasty! On the nose, sweet notes meet dry, slightly tart/bitter notes. Red grapes and some red berries mixed with vanilla and caramel. Plus some wood.
    In the mouth, a full-bodied sweetness dominates, which lasts a relatively long time for 40% alcohol and then changes to caramelized. In the finish I have the grapes again and a nice matching bitter note.

    I really like the flavor notes of the red wine combined with the fruity/sweet notes of the American oak. The dryness of the red wine can be felt in the finish, but it is not disturbing.
    For a NAS bottling and the price top whisky.
