- Well, he does not make me nervous. In addition, always a false note, which may be reminiscent of rubber.
Forest honey, fermented grapes, pepper and occasionally subtle smoke.
Mon Cheri, walnut, (ver) burnt almonds, again the pepper.
Some sherry fruit and dark chocolate.
- I might like that, well, he could be a bit stronger, but he's definitely interesting and different than expected. Sweet stuff, I'll give it to you. Notes from an online chat tasting.
Some smoke and a slightly acidic fruit note at the beginning, the whole backed with vanilla. Gentle aromas. After some time, I can understand both old wood and brandy, but in a positive way. Overall, fuller, fuller and more interesting. Tobacco and pickled plum, I think both are also quite appropriate. The fresh fruity is completely gone, but now I have some herbs and a hint of menthol. When warming a lot of plum jam with star anise and liqueur.
Slightly thin, which takes a few seconds in the mouth, then it is quite dry with tobacco, herbs and some beet syrup as a contrast. A hint of oak to the rear. Also here, apparently, some smoke.
Not even so short, warms up significantly, then at first is the very restrained sweetness to make room for rotting wood and tobacco again. The burden, which remains in the mouth at the end and slightly corky ashy, reminds again of smoke.
- I like it, stuffy stuff, apparently gotten good sherry keg and the smoky little corner fits in well. With ~ 40 € no bargain for NAS, but taste justified.
Dusty, dead wood, almost a bit smoky (especially at the beginning, is weak), plus vanilla, schrumpliger red apple, caramel, also has something of brandy ... is then softer, rounder, a bit earthy
quite strong, full-bodied, dark chocolate, wood, spicy (in the direction of pepper / nutmeg, a bit spicy), warm, earthy, mossy, and here too I form some sweetish smoke
medium, the wood and the spices sound, coffee and a hint of licorice
- Clear associations with winter! Smoke, burnt rubber, firewood, burnt wood, coffee, creme brulee, spices, laurel, grapefruit, cough syrup. Very mineral.
- I must have gotten a disaster batch apparently. The whisky is simply not drinkable for me:
A penetrating metallic bitterness, underlaid with a bit of forest fruit and vanilla, both in the nose and in the mouth. In addition, there is an uncomfortable rubber note that gives the whole thing the rest.
I can't understand how you can fill and sell something like that.
- A strange but harmonious combination of industrial and creamy notes, metal and sweetness, dense, juicy, rather minimalistic, without unnecessary details.
Open, damp, damp wood with biting mineral-metallic shades, machine oil, metal shavings, oiled steel tools, welding spray, sweet creamy shades.
Dense, rich, oak, strong mineral tones, industrial notes, machine oil, toffee, fudge, pepper wave, sweet creamy motives.
Spicy, invigorating, mineral-metallic notes, oak, creamy tones.
- The nose is pleasing and surprisingly different, at least initially. Unfortunately in the mouth and especially weak in the finish.
Still easy going. So overall it is ok for the price, nothing more.
Liquorice, pumpernickel, light smoke, tobacco, sherry, grain, rusty metal shavings
Caramel, apple, subtle smoke, bread crust, slight spiciness
Unfortunately, the finish is short and unspectacular
