WhiskeyJason & Julia Nourney dazzled this charity bottling at the Sauerländer Edelbrennerei and the entire proceeds minus VAT and costs for bottles, labels, shipping, etc. was transferred to Strahlemännchen eV for children with cancer.
Color: light gold Viscosity: oily Dram: undiluted and diluted
Conclusion: The first blended malt from German distilleries and then also as a charity bottling, you just can't say no and a bottle just has to move in with me. I think WhiskeyJason's action is really remarkable and I take my hat off to him for this action. The bottling could definitely have been marketed commercially, but the entire proceeds were donated to a good cause. Chapeau and a really grandiose action !! The blended malt also tastes fantastic. A wonderful sweetness paired with a light fruitiness. Overall, I find it really complex and it shows what is really in German distilleries. The alcohol is well integrated, even if you could certainly have bottled it at drinking strength. I'm looking forward to the second bottling and will definitely buy again. Again, a big thank you to WhiskeyJason and everyone who contributed to this bottling, you have my greatest respect.
