    Rate it very well, post advertising for YouTube and then place it in your own shop with a surcharge of € 50.

    Great new whisky world ...

    I didn't expect as much as he delivered. I got caught and excited about this bottling.
    If you want to see my impression in German, you can take a look at me on Youtube.

    I have to take the normal bottlings to Gemühte, it remains interesting.

    what a delicious stuff. Five years, no I can't believe it. More like a 20 year old whisky. A full fruit bomb, intense, full aromas, cherries, raisins and sweet vanilla. Candied orange, dark berries. Pleasantly full and intense. A very good barrel. I am very impressed. A highlight! The bottle will not survive long

    The 0.5l bottle for just under 80 euros is ambitious for a 5 year old whisky. But worth the price. I wouldn't spend more than that.

    Tolerates water, I diluted it to 53%.

      Becomes slightly bitter. Orange jam, espresso and a delicate note of oak remain. Medium length.

    Reached me as a "secret sample gift" as I try to avoid new/fresh/hip distilleries recently I avoided a bottle split within our group... but still got a sample.

    And boy, was I wrong.
    For its age, very solid for me in every way.
    Nose, Mouth (what a punch!), Finish.

    WELL DONE!
    (87 from me, wich is outstanding for age and initial price of this whisky).
    Guess gonna have an eye on following releases.

    It's always impressive what a good barrel can do, and this must definitely have been a good sherry butt. The barrel has left its mark on the malt, but the young age cannot be completely hidden. All in all a very nice malt on the nose, but unfortunately too young for me.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Alcohol noticeable in the nose but astonishingly well integrated in 62%; sweet and dark fruity; Berry; dark cherries; Orange notes; Raisins; Caramel; nice spicy notes; Cinnamon; some vanilla; in addition a harmoniously integrated noticeably woody spice
      - beautiful, intense sherry profile, looks older than 5 years
    • Taste
      87 87
      sweet start; slightly creamy; Raisins; Orange; Cherry; Spices; delicate tart oak seasoning; wow the barrel has already worked properly here
    • Finish
      85 85
      slightly bitter woody spice; delicate fruit notes; Spices; here the youth can get through a bit

  9. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Sophisticated sherry whisky despite its young age
    • Nose
      88 88
      Herbal, woody, bubbly, something sticks in the nose, but also nice sherry sweetness
    • Taste
      86 86
      Raisin sweetness, significantly better than the nose, somewhat dry / astringent,
    • Finish
      84 84
      Very elegant, a little under-complex, finishes nicely

  10. BehindSpace scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    good whisky for its young age...

    ...but it can't hide its youth.

    needs a good amount of water, otherwise its way too alcoholic and sharp.

    swims very good though

    overpriced nontheless

    without water: -3 to -5
