  1. Kalendin scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      92 92
      An intense sherry load straight away. Preserved berry compote with fragrant sweetness like freshly caramelized creme brulee.
      The nose is really a poem. I could smell my glass all evening without drinking from it.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The sweetness promised by the nose is confirmed in the oral cavity. The mouthfeel is rich, heavy and almost syrupy. In addition, there is a decent oak flavor without any bitterness. I would never assume a maturation time of only 6 years here, but an Octave barrel is also very small and accelerates the maturation immensely.
      In the mouth, dark ripe forest fruits, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, some espresso and sweet pickled raisins join the sweetness and oak flavor.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long, spicy and sweet. He stays for quite a while. If you sniff the empty glass hours later, you can still feel all the aromas of this delicious malt.
      For me again a really great bottling from the Hercynian distillery in the Harz Mountains.

    description
    Elsburn
    There it is, the first single malt from Hercynian Distilling bottled exclusively for the whisky dwarf.

    And what a great barrel we got here :-)

    The Elsburn was distilled in 2014 and was allowed to mature for 6 years from the first to the last day in a small sherry octave barrel only 65l. The Elsburn was bottled on January 22nd, 2021

    In terms of color, this malt is very dark, aromatic, highly complex and very round.

    A total of 74 bottles were in full cask strength of 55.8% vol. bottled.

    The Elsburn is without dyes (non-colored) and without cold filtration (non-chill-filtered).

    ~ Variety: Single Malt Whisky
    ~ Barrel: Sherry Octave barrel
    ~ Aroma: Spicy, sweet, raisins, coffee, intense sherry aromas
    ~ Taste: dark chocolate, caramel, roasted almonds, orange, preserved fruit compote
    Finish: pleasant oak, sweet and long
