    • Nose
      Flower magic, light honey, spicy, fruit, apricot
    • Taste
      Sherry, Spicy, Fruity
    • Finish
      Medium long and sweet with honey

      For a 5 year. Malt, nicely done. The chestnut barrels make it interesting - different aroma and taste.

    If you like the typical German Schnaps, this one should be your thing.

    Nothing to impress a whiskyonado or a fan of the typical taste of single malt whisky all over the world (yes, there are also other malts but scotch).

    Aureum Vintage 2008 CS, 5 years, original bottling, 53.9% alc. Distillery: distillery Ziegler Aging: chestnut barrels, European and American oak barrels. Region: Baden-Württemberg, Germany
    Nose: vanilla and marzipan, molasses and raisins in rum. Slightly creamy, very sweet. Fruit salad is similar to ripe fruit. Then fruity chocolate, Mon Cherie. In the background is a light spicy note, dry wood with mild peppermint.
    Palate: Sweet and creamy, raisins and candy. There are again associations with the rum. The spices are stronger, the fruit, however, is less present. Cloves and a slightly smoky yet sweet tone of chili.
    Finish: Long with alcohol, once again looks like rum. In addition slightly bitter wood sweetness, the sweetness is stronger towards the end.
    Conclusion: Insanely good. Again not comparable to a Scotsman, but please not with a Obstler!
