    official information:

    The namesake Hathumod (* 840; † November 29, 874 in Gandersheim) of the 6th whisky from the Ottonen series of the monastery courtyard Brunshausen is the daughter of Duke Liudolf, ancestor of the Ottonen. At the age of 12, Hathumod became the first abbess of the new Gandersheimer Stift. She attached great importance to the passing on of her humanistic training received in Herford. She died at the age of 34 as a result of an unknown illness that she is said to have contracted while caring for her sisters who were also sick. In her honor, we had this wonderful single malt produced by the Hercynian Distilling Company.

    Barrels: Sherry Hogsheads / Sherry Octave / Port / Marsala / Claret

    Nose: The first nose begins with a sumptuous fruit cake and fine baked raisins. Then the notes of winter dessert strengthen: sweet berries, speculoos and light caramel cream. At the very end there is a moderate oak and, for the very patient, a very subtle touch of salt and fine pecan, as well as mocha.

    Taste: The taste starts out strong, but still accessible and velvety than expected. Notes of raisin cookies with meringue and sweet grapes dominate the beginning, while fine candied fruits strengthen afterwards. Only in the second course do subtle oak aromas, light chocolate and a tangible (spicy) flavor appear. Almost at the very end, fine vanilla and crisp notes of caramel bloom. The complex taste lasts for a medium time and still exudes its charming character after a few minutes.
