Whisky Reviews for BAAS 2011

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.08 points

  1. Albaron scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    In the end it reminds of a bourbon very much and does not have much to do with malt whisky. Since the white oak probably did a great job. But I say honestly, I can imagine the beer well and he is also good for stuffing. Not for every day, but as a change class and especially independent. The nose is really exciting.
    • Nose
      sweet and sour at first, a little hay, then an artificial sweet sweetener that dominates, as well as a slight oiliness, a hint of caramel and slightly overripe bananas
    • Taste
      Here is a slight heat from the alcohol, light fruit schnapps or schnapps, the hay here, the sweetness is not as extreme as in the nose, but the banana flavor here too
    • Finish
      light tannins, the oiliness is strong, some honey is sparkling and flanked by the sweetness

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Amazing for 3 years, for being a German, even more amazing. The now again a few years in a beautiful barrel ...
    • Nose
      Sweet, grain, honey, fresh wood, a little flower water, but soon more wood and honey.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweetish, malty, subtle fruit and some cloves, at the second sip unfortunately some alcohol, the youth is not completely concealable.
    • Finish
      Sweetish, fruity, slightly bitter and quite short

  3. Archer scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    I would not have come to a German whisky, but he tastes too little for Obstler. But, not so bad considering that he is such a young representative of his kind. wlk 17-09
    • Nose
      Very fruity (applesauce and yellow pears) and grainy, with the smell of a flower shop. Honey, vanilla are coming, very sweet overall.
    • Taste
      Extremely mild start. Again honey and vanilla, but fruit and floral notes are weaker on the tongue than in the nose. Pretty dry and a bit spicy.
    • Finish
      Rather short, while dry. The honey from the nose and the palate gets tart, herbs play in, a bit woody.

  4. ASWhisky scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    nice maturation, young, no alcohol, easy and pleasant to drink I can well imagine as a companion to a Altbier
    • Nose
      soft, first mashmallows then brewer's yeast, roasted aromas, warm golden yellow grain, thin noble honey, some sweet popcorn, vanilla, slight light dusty note, the nose is pleasant
    • Taste
      Mouth soft warm start, it tingles on the tongue like the carbonation in the beer, roasted aromas, popcorn, cereals, honey, yummy
    • Finish
      As pleasant as the mouth and nose are, so is the finish, with a continuous line from the nose to the finish, with a very slight bitterness on the finish

  5. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Unfortunately in the mouth far less pleasant than in the nose. But not so bad for a German whisky. Reminiscent of bourbon.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, apricot, orange peel. Very floral-fruity-sweet in the nose. Some honey and meadow herbs. Also malty Roestaromen. Behind it are some typical bourbon flavors: fudge, caramel, some "glue", but not unpleasant. A touch of oak is also there.
    • Taste
      First, aqueous-oily texture. First reserved, then very vanilla-caramel. Some honey and some more floral and sweet notes. Some spice from the barrel. Pineapple. Metallic youth is also noticeable. Dry.
      I miss a clearly recognizable Distillatcharakter. The barrel has taken over the essential flavors here.
    • Finish
      Short, very dry, some caramel and Fasswuerze.
