    Glen Els Unique Distillery Edition "Sherry Caks", Original Bottling, 45.9% alc.
    Region: Lower Saxony, Germany

    This whisky is not from Scotland but from the Lower Saxony Zorge in the district of Osterode am Harz. The distillery Hammerschmiede is now internationally known for their good whiskys.
    ...
    Nose: The alcohol is present, the nose has to get used to it. Then follow oranges and tangerines, a touch of grapefruit. In addition, a note of some fruit cake, rather sweetened fruit in raw cake dough. This is followed by mint and something metallic.

    Palate: Sweet with lots of raisins. Then come caramel and toffee, the cake is now ready baked. Some bitter oak flavors, spicy fine.

    Finish: medium in length, the oak remains a bit bitter on the palate.

    Conclusion: A single malt from Germany? This one could also come from the Speyside. You can tell him the youth still clearly, but is already a good whisky.
