Interesting, interesting, he needs water despite the 64% none, it does not hurt. Whether you prefer the very idiosyncratic taste of pure or the more ordinary profile with water and then take some tin in purchase, is probably a matter of taste. In any case, this is for his seven years a terrific malt, the Brennereicharakter despite the highly active barrel from time to time through. Can you start something with it?
No alcohol in the nose, that's surprising. Otherwise, he shows mature apples and a decent load of caramel at the beginning. After some life sweat, and sulphured fruits. After another quarter of an hour, the barrel has won. Sherry whisky, heavy, slightly buttery, sweaty, quite interchangeable but good. A touch of sulfur indicates the origin. Still does not heat alcohol in the nose, but some baby porridge and Babybäuerchen. Poured apples and caramel, this is where the distillery comes up against the barrel. With water: Now a bit nutty on the nose, pumpkin hits it, and much more apples. With water and heat the alcohol bites for the first time in the nose, but only once. Warms up the same nose as without water.
Wow, is the dense, the alcohol is well integrated, only after a few seconds in the mouth it shows up at all, but remains completely manageable. Heavy, very oily mouthfeel. A nutty sweetness with so much salt, that it almost compensates for the sweet impression, spreads in the mouth, in the back it is also clearly herb. It reminds a little of mashed, butter cooked vegetables, mainly carrots, quite positive. Warms up then much sweeter, honey with a dash of apple juice, the harsh notes come earlier, the salt seems to be gone, but now a bit metallic.
Tender and rather long. At the very end even with a slightly fruity impression, apple rests in the mouth. With water even here now much sweeter and a little shorter.
