  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Sulmgau single malt whisky, 4 years, 47% alc. Original bottling. Expansion: acacia barrel, maturing in a chestnut barrel

    Nose: Slightly misted sweetness, beeswax, unripe banana, tree resin. Grasses, moist forest floor, very fresh and clear. Some rock candy. In addition, a very light smoke, malt.

    Palate: Very sweet and slightly spicy, almost an artificial sweetness. Flavored cotton candy, coffee liqueur. Increasing bitterness, espresso, cocoa beans.

    Finish: Short to medium-long, dry and slightly sweet, the bitterness barely there.

    Conclusion: have I ever had an acacia barrel? This artificial sweetness, tree resin - a bit peculiar but exciting. Anyone interested in whisky from Germany cannot avoid this bottling. 81/100 points (2021). I thank the manufacturer for the sample.

    I think this whisky is very successful. The unusual types of wood bring unusual aromas, but are beautiful and pleasantly mild. He gets along very well with a little water. I like it.
    • Nose
      Grassy-sweet tones, reminds me a little of stevia. Then freshly varnished wood follows. The sweetness becomes a little clearer. Over time, there are light roasted aromas and a very subtle softwood smoke. There is also a little malt sugar.
    • Taste
      Soft, slightly warming start with a subtle bitter note. In addition, a malty sweetness and a quickly disappearing sharpness. Again the feeling of coniferous wood. The sweetness, together with the bitter note, is reminiscent of stevia again. Flowery aromas emerge and the spiciness comes back. With a little water it becomes milder and softer.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather medium-long and dry, with spicy-sweet aromas
