  1. Gloin scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A very nice refreshing aroma with a distinctive character and yet clearly recognizable as whisky. The taste and the finish are tarter than the nose, but still fit perfectly. An Alster water among the whiskys. Overall, a very nice whisky made from bourbon casks, which shows me once again how much this type of maturity is underestimated. blank
    • Nose
      very fresh, sweet lemon and vanilla, cream, mint, freshly cut grass, clover, a little woodruff, a slight spiciness in the background
    • Taste
      a light body, dry onset, then sweeter, but with a decent spice, oak is also present, without appreciable bitterness, the lemon takes a back seat, even the mint; In their place are tighter herbs such as sage, Nussigkeit, nevertheless, the whisky is still fresh. In the second sip, the citrus fruits return and complement the impression.
    • Finish
      clean oak, bitter beer, Jever or Becks, even a little lemon shows up again, although tart as in the nose and taste
