Whisky Reviews for ElsBurn Wayfare
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.93 points
- It starts again: German whisky is dipped into wet barrels at +/- 4 years and rated with over 90 points. - BRAVO!
- Overall well balanced and straightforward, somewhat one-dimensional.
Walnut, Maggi seasoning, wanilla wafers, dark rum, Christmas fir, polished leather, paraffin. Somewhat lively and pronounced intensity.
Sherry, polish, wood, vanilla, fine rubber note. Creamy oily for a medium body
Sherry, polish, rum. Balanced, sweet, bitter with a medium-long finish.
- Favorite of the "standard" range!
This year's Wayfare has such great fruitiness, beautiful oak, fine chocolate, espresso, vanilla.
A fantastic all-rounder, especially with 1-2 drops of water
- The distillery states that the (regional) barley malt used is 95% regular and 5% woodsmoked. The smoked portion may affect the overall composition - I can't smell or taste it. The barrel types include 50% Sherry Hogsheads plus 50% Port, Marsala, Malaga, Grand Cru Claret. A colorful mix of southern and sweet wines.
- The surprise of the evening. Totally crazy.
Notes from an online blind tasting.
I fell in love with the first nose. A smell of sauerbraten, just like my papa made it, pours out of the glass. Awesome. Really meaty and sour. Bay leaves, dumplings too. Which are thickly covered with dark sauce. Some cabbage and toasted breadcrumbs. Stock cubes and oil-smeared leather.
Meaty start. Thick, dark gravy with sour cherries. Game meat. Also partly doughy in taste. More juniper berries here.
With the second sip, more workshop. Oil and filter coffee. Wet tobacco and leather. Dirty blueberries and burnt flavors.
Long and dirty. Just too cool!
- This bottling also convinced me again. For me the best German whisky by far!
Round, relatively simple, but no missing notes whatsoever. Honey-sweet, red-fruity, some tobacco and leather, clear notes of sherry
Rum-grape-nut chocolate at its best! Mild, jammy, plums and cherries, slightly dry, creamy coffee with milk and some red pepper.
The distillery character is very evident.
Medium length, still sweet with a little spice, a little pepper, cherries and white coffee
