    N: Like a sherried blend with a high malt content, it’s all quite thin yet everything appears to be present and correct. I get on the nose, perfumed beer, Grandma’s soap, some old umami stuff, faint fruity creasote, soft raspberry leaf tea, grapefruit, long-kept wine and boot polish.
    T: A pokey, fruity and dusty old sherried number with a soft 70’s blend vibe.
    F: With more of that 70’s vibe, it’s papery with sugar icing and dusty oak oils. Not totally surprisingly, the beer casks work but then they didn’t appear to depart any ale.
    C: Forget Swiss precision, this is more a sourced old [>tired], yet wacky/interesting Scotch where enjoyment easily outweighs score.Scores a C-

    That's the herbal ointment that Uwe Ochsenknecht is so desperately searching for! Probably out of local patriotism, I have this drop but probably a little too high, had to correct the current tasting a right piece down ... yes, this treacherous sweetness ...
    • Nose
      Herbs, a little minty, somehow a shot too sweet
    • Taste
      light herbal liqueur
    • Finish
      leathery, herbaceous and at the same time strangely sweet; Peaches from the tin can

    Something different and highly recommended
    • Nose
      Herbs, honey, light yeast
    • Taste
      Herbs in the foreground, oak, a little caramel, yeast is slightly more intense than in the nose
    • Finish
      Herbs fly away and there is a slight taste of tobacco on the tongue

    • Nose
      Has a typical smell initially; opens with a sour beer smell. So it takes some getting used to. Then some malty, light fruit (apple).
    • Taste
      Also strange first sip, has some chemical and is watery (lacking body), with rolling around in the mouth wood tones come forward; gives a warm and spicy taste after swallowing; lingers at the top of the palate.

  9. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The best Swiss so far.
    • Nose
      First herbs, like in a sage Ricola, then lots of honey.
    • Taste
      First some woody, then herbs, as with the Ipalat tablets, then a little spice.
    • Finish
      Again, many herbs that stay in the mouth for a long time.

    Interesting...
    • Nose
      Wow, very spirity. Lavandre, roses. Dare I say wodka-like? But it's different, very smooth and therefor acceptable
    • Taste
      Very smooth. Bit boring. Again the lavandre, But no body at all.
    • Finish
      What finish?
