Whisky Reviews for ElsBurn 2013

- Nice aromatic drink which does even better after adding water. Leather, wax and forest honey in the nose. But tasting it instead of whisky one rather thinks of a fortified wine that has had some measures too much of alcohol. Any spirit character is being buried beneath the wine cask influence.
- Somehow very tasty, but doesn't have much to do with whisky for me. More like a good red wine with 50% alcohol.
Italian Connection - 1st fill Amarone & Marsala

A new love seems to be sparking. After I used to devote myself reluctantly and shyly to the German distilleries, I have to admit that the hammer forge completely knocks me out of my socks. That's why there's the latest bottling for the Easter weekend.
All I can say is: Amarone is Amore!
The wine influence is dominant directly in the glass, which is why time and a little warmth should help my hand.
Dream! Sticky toffee pudding meets a hint of cinnamon, maybe a little clove. The fruity components join in. Full-bodied prunes in a harmonious composition with syrup amarena cherries. Gradually, the nutty touch comes into its own. Roasted almonds flavored with cappuccino ... Great!
I also have something flowery in my nose.
On the whole, the glass shows off a fascinating interplay of woody-tart aromas and a compote refined with wine.
Cherry! And totally chocolaty, maybe something like chocolate raisins.
A mix of honey and propolis appears.
A fruity-tart experience with a delightful sweetness.
The bitter notes are incredibly beautiful and go very well with the overall composition - coffee meets syrup.
The Amarone in combination with the sweetness of the Marsala is simply a jackpot. Dark grapes stick to the palate.
long, tangy, tangy finish with a sweet kiss.
Sensational and once again proof that the hammer forge knows its trade. Bravo!
- Simply nice to look at, nice to drink, nice to smell, nice as a whole!
