    A really different whisky ... very barrel driven, very sweet, sticky ... but there are days when you want something like that!

    N: Butterscotch, that came first. At first the malt shows a lot of vanilla and a delicious sweetness, which is repeatedly crushed by the alcohol. Shortly there is this Caramel Macchiato, from this small coffee house chain ... The 54.1% are very active in the glass. The nose fluctuates again and again between vanilla, alcohol and wood. The wine finish also shows its influence again and again, similar to pear cider with fresh rosemary and thyme.

    T: alcohol in dominance. This is followed by the vanilla and wine aromas, which are supplemented by the herbs. Moving on to the finish, a floral sweetness comes into play.

    Q: Doesn't a certain sweetness last long, now to finish? More malty with a sour sweetness that is pleasant.

    This is a whisky to explore!

    Would say it's a Bushmills :-)

    - a very aromatic, intense Irishman from the ADoS range
    - great smell, great aroma, very successful
    - Can be enjoyed very well even without water
    - Not a bargain for 100 € but definitely a very good one

    • Nose
      direct sweetish malty impression, caramel, vanilla, physalis, apricot, very intense and complex
    • Taste
      without W .: very soft start, caramel, fruity, very aromatic, alcohol noticeably present but very well integrated;

      with W .: even softer and rounder, still very pleasant, mild, creamy, buttery, shortbread, shortbread, toffee
    • Finish
      mild medium-long finish;
      medium-long aftertaste

  6. DerDennis! scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Sweet, sticky, metallic, bubbly. Drowned in wine. From my point of view, it has nothing to do with whisky. Could be anything. I wouldn't have thought of an Irishman.

  10. vlad78 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I liked this drink with its ease of perception.
    • Nose
      Warm lime honey, buckwheat honey, a little alcohol, and then light tones rise: green apple, lemon zest, dried orange peel, some dried flowers in a vase.
    • Taste
      The taste has the same structure: first, sweet, stringy tones, and then a floral lightness, ending with a slight bitterness of spices, or dried petals.
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is sweet, descending, tart.
