    I already liked the predecessor Taraansay 12 years from the sister barrel very much. And the Taraansay 13 years was also a wonderful success for the Solingen Brothers In Malt. And the issue price of less than 40 euros is really great for this whiskey.

      Great oak barrel aging with the typical sweet vanilla note and freshly processed wood. I'm a big fan of the various pleasant wood flavors in whiskey. This one smells wonderfully of fresh sawdust.

      Tight start, according to the 59.2 percent barrel strength. Fruity and sweet. In the background a very slightly bitter note, which for me is the only small downer in this bottling, but only shows up very briefly. Overall, not a big spectacle, but simple and tasty. I like it.

      Apple pits, fresh oak, vanilla and mild sweetness. Medium length. Very nice. Definitely arguable, but for me as a fan of the wood aromas described, a really great bottling.

    An exciting whiskey. 13 years, single cask and then for less than 40 €. Actually a no-brainer. And he thinks so.
    After several attempts, I like him a lot.
    It's a bit like a sawmill, where the wood is freshly cut and then someone comes over and covers the wood with beeswax.
    Very fruity and sweet on the nose and on the palate then comes the full force. Citrus fruits and then wood, but the good wood. The alcohol is well integrated and reinforces the impression that it is a virgin oak. Just an idea. Afterwards, the alcohol takes one more time with you, but leaves space for this lovely honey and this really great woody taste.

    I think it's great and for the price it's really a top whiskey.
    Thanks to Brothers in Malt for this experience.

      Woody. It smells like a sawmill. In addition, it is fruity and sweet.
    • Taste
      Fresh cut boards covered with honey. In addition, a citrus note.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting and there are notes of wood, honey and citrus notes.
