    I liked the taste profile quite a lot, so I asked the producer for more insights as I wanted to discover this unknown distillery more. They told me that this particular cask was bought some years ago and they were told that it contained teaspooned Macallan - which they cannot guarantee, but they deem it very likely (storage location, taste profile, ...).
    Too bad for me though - 19y Macallan single casks are a bit out of my price range to explore further. Anyway, this makes this particular Whisky quite a bargain in my eyes!

    They indeed sold their "family silver" here - unfortunate that they cannot disclose it.

    Raisins, honey, dried fruit, especially apricot, hint of fresh pepper on the nose. Semi sweet, caramel, a little astringent, some ripe fruit dessert, medium length finish. Allegedly teaspooned MacAllan. Good stuff, would probably improve further at higher abv.

    good smell and taste but the body is too soft as a 19 year-aged whisky and isn't complex enough.

    the important thing is the finish is too short
