  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Awesome part. I like it very much.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Amber

      Nose:
      Starts nicely with a smoky barbecue sauce. Meaty, greasy and paprika seasoning. Leather and blueberries. Charred wood and a light fruity touch. For me it goes in the direction of apricots. I'll leave it ...
      With a little time in the glass, herbs come through much better. Plus a little tobacco. For me, the herbal aroma is more like lovage. A lot of malt and a little liquorice. The fruit aroma now looks more fermented. Geilo ... the more air your colleague gets, the dirtier he gets. Some engine oil and WD40. Cold espresso in the background.

      The empty glass smells really great like gravy ...
    • Taste
      Spicy, powerful start. So it has to be. Clean in the hatch. It's got steam. I save water. I like it exactly that way.
      For me, the smoke goes in the direction of smoked barbecue spices. In addition, dark chocolate and dark gravy with cherries inside. With the second sip, the charred wood also asserts itself. Even slightly ashy. Here now also more espresso bitterness and sour blackberries. There’s something hot. Towards rust and a dry blood taste.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. You think it's gone, then it rolls back. Strong, slightly smoky and again the BBQ spices.

    Without exception, I join my prescriber Xaver.
    I couldn't have written better!
