  2. Stef89 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Not mine at all. Has a pretty resinous stone pine note. Both in smell and taste. What comes underneath is delicious, but cannot compete with this resinous note.

  3. FeydRautha scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Wow .... What a "whisky". For me it fulfills the (meanwhile outdated) cliché of a "typical" German whisky: Inharmonious, hot and musty. Had to throw it away.

    Again a very beautiful Westphalian, not quite as pleasant as the one from the Aberlour-Cask. I like the spicy-sweet aspects. Can be drunk undiluted. But you should give it some time to develop all the flavors.

      Dark cherries and sweet. Also vanilla, spiciness, wood, chocolate, dust and caramel. Later shoe polish and pine resin, also soy. Somewhat alcoholic. Takes time in the glass to develop.

      Again sweetness, wood, spices and cherries. Caramel. Almost viscous. Plus dust and resin. The alcohol is pretty well integrated.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long, slightly bitter finish. Peppery and spicy, oak. Mouth drying.

    Poah. Clove. This is not my nose. But not bad in terms of taste. Tobacco potato in the finish
