  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Blind sample:

      Colour:
      Light white wine

      Nose:
      Also beautiful and completely the opposite of the predecessor.
      Starts nice and sweet with caramel cream. Add some vanilla ice cream and marshmallow. The colleague is generally very fresh and clear to me. Light currants, juicy peach and a few squeezes of lemon. Then dry wood. The alcohol is very restrained.
      With some time in the glass I find something in the direction of the lychee.
    • Taste
      Soft start. Then the alcohol prevails and pushes the aromas on. Hazelnut, some nougat and waffles.
      With the second sip, significantly more bitterness and fresh pear. Also looks much more acidic. I would have said gooseberries now. A trace of paint and wood. A chameleon in taste.
      Significantly more grain notes. Also a little solvent here. Also becomes more peppery and more alcoholic.
    • Finish
      Here too, rather long. Cereals, malt, slightly yeasty and tidy bitterness. Always with a sour citrus note.
