    The second bottle already!

    I have to say that first
    was deterred by "peated",
    since I don't like peaty whiskys.
    A good friend and also a whisky lover had brought me the bottles from the hammer forge and what can I say, I'm thrilled!

    This mixture of Alrik Samhain, X2 and Amarone 6 Woodsmoked is like a fire in the fireplace and a sweetness with ham with very little sulfur and nice spices with plums and roasted almonds.

    Luckily I couldn't taste any ppm or peat directly, luckily.

    For me it is one of the top Elsburners from the hammer forge.

    The combination resulted in completely new taste images ...
    A pleasure for the nose and the palate!

    This scent, which flows from the glass towards me, is beguiling,
    fine smoke,
    Strawberry jam, vanilla, forest fruits and spices conquer my sense of smell.
    On the palate, dark fruits are reflected first, followed by raisins, figs and dark chocolate, the fruity taste is wrapped in light wonderful smoke.
    The finish is followed by the well-known leathery taste of the distillery, with a wonderfully pleasant sweetness,
    that makes the next sip irresistible.

    Sensational, I'm thrilled my senses, what an ingenious German whisky that certainly doesn't have to hide behind a bulkhead.

    Wonderfully fruity and really complex for its age. The combination of the barrels is well done and offers a rich mix of different taste nuances. The smoke content adds to the complexity, but never takes up too much space.
