    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
    55.5% - Kirsch Import Exclusive

    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!
