  3. boborban scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    sergeThis little German bottler has already issued quite a handful of excellent whiskies, always fairly priced if I remember well. Colour: white wine. Nose: there is this paraffin again, but otherwise it’s a finer spirit than the 1986, with more fruits although I wouldn’t call this ‘fruity’. Apples, greengages… Also touches of lemon, then whiffs of sunflower oil, unless that would rather be grape pips oil. It’s a rather delicate spirit, but it’s got character. A light character… Mouth: ah yes, this is where the differences wrt the 1986 are most obvious. Bigger, fatter, fruitier again, with several sour fruits that give it an interesting side. Grapefruits, sour apples, rhubarb perhaps… Also some melissa water, not-too-ripe grapes… It’s rather unusual, getting greener and greener minute after minute. After ten minutes it’s almost grapefruit juice. Finish: quite long, lemony, a little earthy… This could be a margarita, in a way. Fun stuff. Comments: fun stuff indeed. Rather unorthodox, but fun.

    • Nose
      wet/cold/watery feel and quite fruity (pineapple & peach esters, not vry realistic but nice) +/o, mineral +/o, vanilla o, some green plant-y/vegetable notes o/-, a dog's fart o/- (something fermented & rotten), wet tobacco o/-, ( 84 )
    • Taste
      much more savoury/salty than I expected first of, some sweet malt notes that verge on floral/perfumy paired with a bit of sour (lemon -y) & bitterness (bright wood), also some cellulosis/paper-y notes (81)
    • Finish
      more slight sour/bitterness notes with a starchy/chalk-y profile poking through the malt sweetness & occasionally fruity & white chocolate notes too, but they are somewhat fleeting. Drying end. (83)

      Later: More white chocolate & some menthol/mint. Minty chocolate alcohol water ? (85)
