Nose

Ohne Wasser:

Boah was für eine Nase, vom Alkohol keine Spur, unglaublich Floral, Wiese, Heide, Butter, richtig viel Heu, alte Scheune, als würde ich in einem Meer aus Blumen stehen.

Mit Wasser:
Heu, Heu, Heu und noch mehr heu, riecht fast nach alten Muff, die Blumen sind weg, die Wiese ist nur noch leicht zu erahnen...

Taste

Ohne Wasser:

Wiese, Heu, Alkohol prickelt leicht auf der Zunge

Mit Wasser:
Fast wie Wasser auf der Zunge, der wumms fehlt, die Aromen sind lange nicht mehr so intensiv

Finish

Ohne Wasser:

Lang, Heu, Wiese, Rosen, Holunder, Butter, Tannenzapfen

Mit Wasser:
Fast schon kurz, Leicht, die Wiese ist kaum zu schmecken, auch das Heu ist nicht mehr so intensiv...

Comments

Nose: after the initial grassy and surprisingly minty wave has passed, this one shows a very candied profile. Banana jellies, pink grapefruits, papaya. Less of the acidic notes (passion fruits) this time. Instead lots of milky vanilla, with some marzipan as well. Also lovely waxy notes, paraffin, almost the old Ben Nevis-style lipstick notes. After a while the mint / eucalyptus oil returns. What a great nose. Mouth: utterly fruity, very tropical, with lots of warming and exotic fruits. Papaya, guava, banana, pineapple and coconut. Mid-palate it gets a little greener, with some tobacco leaves, green tea and oak. Again really waxy. I can’t stop thinking of the unique Ben Nevis style, only much fruitier. Finish: long, with fruit tea and salty oak.

This pretty much blew me away, just like the sherry casks that were bottled in 2012. It’s such a wonderful whisky and this particular example is more complex and more unique than the already great bourbon casks of the last few months. Around € 135. Sold out.

Score: 92/100
