    Only if people are stupid enough :)

    Fascinating whisky. It appreciates water, but remains very intense. Well worth buying.
    • Nose
      Thumping sherry through light spirit. Floral, but with some mashed
      raisins, oloroso and chocolate. Water kills the spirit, but brings out
      some fruit.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Coffee, chocolate, cocoa powder. Really intense. Water makes it more juicy. Coffee granules and sugar now.
    • Finish
      Drying cocoa. Shortish, but delicious. Water lengthens it incredibly.
      Lots of spice jumping around now, but the choco-coffee intensity

    Everybody here in Germany seems to love this whisky and it was sold out in very short time. I can fully understand why after tasting a dram.
    • Nose
      Intensive notes of cinnamon at the very beginning. Additional aromas of sherry, dark honey and cedar wood. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Oily with decent cream sherry, toffee and oat flake cookies. Lovely taste.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying.
