  1. RJKrueger scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Another really delicious bottle from Elsburn. Easy to drink and made for the sweet side of life. You have to try it.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Diverse and complex, rich sweetness and clear aromas of the sherry-like, Andalusian liqueur wine.
    • Taste
      89 89
      A little spiciness at the start, then comes a wave of sweet vanilla and apricots, fermented grapes with a bit of spicy and dusty furniture storage, old leather and milk chocolate - what a mixture.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long and harmoniously sweet and spicy finish.

    Short note: As is typical from the Hammerschmiede, a heavy sweetness with nuts, sweet wines and dates. Wow, it gives a homely warm feeling, very nice.

  4. MaroFF scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very good Single Malt from Germany. Another one that I liked. It is true that the aroma was only a moderate impression, the taste and finish rewarded the whole thing. Lots of sweets, fruits, as well as delicate traces of rye flour straight from the miller's sack, make quite a pleasant taste.
    • Nose
      85 85
      sweet, sherry, raisins, roasted oak, furniture polish, light cigarette smoke
    • Taste
      88 88
      fatty, creamy, sweet powdered sugar, cherries in syrup, a little oak, rye flour, coffee grounds and dark chocolate, slightly peppery end
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, warming, quite sweet, slightly spicy with a hint of dark chocolate and buckwheat honey.

    Another excellent ElsBurn. The typical distillate very harmoniously merged with the malaga wine casks. Very rich, intense and tasty.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Typical rich Elsburn nose with touch of sherry-like notes coming from malaga casks. Dry fruits, red fruits, plum, rasins
    • Taste
      89 89
      Typical Elsburn distilate, very rich and intense, spicy, cinnamon, raspberry jam, some white pepper and a touch of furniture polish
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, quite spicy, a bit tart, but pleasant, touch of orange peel in the end

  7. Gogopro52 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    All things Malaga.
    Extremely well balanced, a lot of aromatic pressure, nice raisin sweetness, rich caramel and a great note of nougat.

    Everything a wonderful winter malt needs.
