    Very good whisky! Had fun drinking directly in the restaurant Sushi + Soul in Munich. Very good taste, lots of alcohol. The restaurant with the big, sensational whisky card I can highly recommend. Was already 3x extra because of the whisky card arrived. Same barrel as Shot Bar Zoetrope, Tokyo-Shinjuku (was already there). The owner gave me the numbers that exist. Unfortunately I have not noted the numbers - but Zoetrope about 78 and Sushi + Soul about 156 bottles _ 1/3 - 2/3. New German: The beirisch wisgi gut is drinke in munich nix in Birgarte, drink in Suschisoul restaurant, eat there fish well and crass dise.

    We are on the typical profile of the "new" young whiskys but, here, the bitterness of citrus peel does not go too much ...
    • Nose
      Vanilla, very sweet on almond paste. Alcohol is present.
    • Taste
      Spicy and more fruity on the peach and the love apple, we feel a lot of bitterness in the throat. Water makes it sweeter still (honey).
    • Finish
      Average short on the bitterness of red grapefruit skin (very bitter for me).
