- Obviously on the way up. Added complexity over the last 3 years!
- Not really my case and totally overpriced.
Solvent, Obstler, disinfectants, that is difficult to distribute. In the background then the Bourbon or Virgin Oak Classic Vanilla, to Tanine.
Fruits first, strawberries, then banana and honey, before the whisky turns 180 °. Everything disappears and then a slightly sharp note comes through and the Bourbon barrel comes up with wood and vanilla.
Light, no heavy aromas, it sounds slightly bitter, it sounds.
- Nice bottle and packaging, average malt but grossly overpriced for this averageness.
Why don't they try sherry casks?
- It's hard to say, but that's not whisky, that's oak extract. The spirit has nothing to report, except a slight alcoholic sharpness. Otherwise only oak and unfortunately also the sour wood notes, which are not my case. I'll give the whisky a second chance, but I liked the Cask Strength ( https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/69848/slyrs-2011 ) much better. Today was the second chance, and the whisky has used it a bit. The sour oak notes were no longer felt and the whisky was more pleasant to drink. Nevertheless, of course, much up to much oak.
Strong oak flavor, almost like a bourbon with oak, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves, very intense. Unfortunately also a small pungent alcohol note, despite 43%.
a lot of oak, "young wood", slightly sour. The oak tree has already done a great job here. Honestly, too much work.
Of course, there is also some sourish fruit (which was imperceptible in the nose) and some vanilla.
Much oak, also the sourish wood notes, strong bitter with a slight sweetness in the background. But the sour tart oak notes remain in the foreground.
- Much better than the 3-year-old, that's not a question. But in no way justifies the invoked price. The strong rumassoziationen confuse me a little, I'll probably try it again with some distance.
intense, clear glue, vanilla, in the background a little nut, very sweet, caramel, like cake dough with rum, in general it has something of rum, a hint of Pina Colada, the alcohol is well integrated, with the time also spice, like old leather and Tobacco, pepper, but not spicy
Here, too, I immediately think of rum, caramel, slightly grassy, vanilla, coconut, and just this typical sweets that I actually know more of rum
rather short, the rum character remains sweet with vanilla and caramel
- A round, beautifully matured German whisky! Not very complex, but the existing flavors are wonderfully developed and very intense. So would have to look in the future, the entry into the Slyrs Range. This painting with a finish in sherry or wine barrels has great potential in my view. The horrendous price and the huge hype I consider unjustified. Slyrs "arrived" with this malt for me and I'm curious what to expect from this distillery in the future. Hopefully then at more realistic prices and without a crazy secondary market.
Cotton candy, caramel, vanilla, candy and roasted almonds. Like a fresh Cremé Brûlée with crunchy caramelized crust on a walk through the Munich Oktoberfest. The Obstler nose, which is common to all younger Slyrs, has finally disappeared here.
Fresh and gentle, he plays around the tongue, the alcohol is hard to imagine. Spicy and sweet at the same time. Toasted bread, caramel sweets, vanilla sugar and walnuts. The oak is powerful and very clear. The distillery character of Slyrs is unmistakable. Malty, nutty and definitely not a Scot - but a whisky.
Medium and dry, the Slyrs withdraws from the mouth. The roasted aromas and walnuts take over the lead. Caramel and marzipan behind, covered in dark chocolate.
- Notes By Slyrs Nose: dark wood, ripe to overripe dried fruit,
wonderful vanilla aroma and a hint of toffee.
Taste: in the beginning intense and spicy, notes of
Clove & nutmeg, intense oak, nicely creamy and
Finish: nutty-creamy, wonderfully intense and long,
