  1. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This German whisky is really a real positive surprise. For me an all-round successful young whisky. Chapeau!
    • Nose
      Hints of honey and wax. In addition, dried peach. Subtle notes of oak and in the background I also have a little green apple with slightly metallic notes paired with hay and even a little cowshed, which I usually only know so concisely from individual Bruichladdichs.
    • Taste
      The high alcohol strength transports a real taste explosion on the palate. Notes of honey and wood, a slight nuttiness in the direction of hazelnut are combined with raisins, dark berries and a peppery-salty spice, as is known from much older single malt barrels. With the third sip, I even discover some dark chocolate with a high cocoa content.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long. It leaves wood, honey and nuts with dark berries, removes some chilli and subtle musty notes that are probably due to the wood.

    Description of the distillery: The special series of the Double Raven continues in its third instance.

    Initially, the whisky matured in fresh Kentucky ex-bourbon barrels for three years. The master distiller then married three selected barrels in an original ex-Pedro Ximenez butt and subjected them to a 6 month finish. This barrel was then bottled uncolored and unfiltered.

    Smell: honey, light oak, apricot & raisin

    Taste: Creamy and oily mouthfeel. At first slightly peppery freshness. Later, nutty aroma paired with vanilla.

    Finish: medium length, vanilla & raisin
