    i would rather have the white rye instead of this one, at least that one had good texture, this is just boring

    Hard to say ... a whiskey is not supposed to be here for the first time. Generally very hard to get used to and certainly not everyone's case. Nevertheless interesting; for me a vivid example of how complex Whisk (e) y can be in all its forms.
    • Nose
      Plastic and rubber, something like a new dinghy. Then a slightly sulfuric note, something reminiscent of gear oil and very slightly solvent. Overall, he makes a somewhat oily impression.
    • Taste
      Something tingling and spicy, the engine oil component remains. Seasoning, sweetness coming up, the Rye component now seems, if only slightly, through. Every now and then you can feel minimal notes of fresh oak.
    • Finish
      Again, gum notes, a little oiliness and light spice. Short to medium finish, becoming drier toward the end. Not really intoxicating.

    F urchtbar. Brrrrrrrrr ....
    • Nose
      Smells like a cold bath, mountain pine and sage. Smells awful.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet, some honey. Then the whole thing gets a juniper note again.
    • Finish
      Short and meaningless.
