  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pretty complex. Apparently me just slowly. First a pleasant aromatic smoky note. Then the bourbon barrel comes first with a nice sweetness. The caramel is slightly salty from the smoke. A light, sweet fruit flashes very briefly - it could be raspberry. The red wine finish shows up last, but all the more clearly with dark fruit jam and some leather.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. Distinct wine-typical acidity. Spicy, with oak and leather. Some smoke. Is slowly getting sweeter and fruity, but this time more towards orange.
    • Finish
      Long. Sour like leather.

    [December, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in September, 2012.

    [January, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 58,50 Euro in October, 2012.

    [March, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 60 Euro in October, 2012.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5 all times.  My notes state a strong winey profile that most probably is not to everybody's liking - but I like it...
