Zuerst will ich die Fassart herausfinden: Da kommt aber zuerst Apfel, leicht ledrig umflort, alsdann steigen zerbissene Apfelkerne sowie ein bunter und frischer Fruchtmix hervor. Aber zurück zu den verwendeten Fässern: eindeutig feinste Sherryanteile, aber auch Vanille aus Bourbonfässern. Das ist aber wirklich eine gelungene Mixtur! Ausgesprochen erlesene Fässer!

Taste

Sirupartig, vollmundig, würzig. Was wünscht man sich noch mehr?

Finish

Und alles verdichtet sich im Abgang noch etwas, ohne dass irgend ein Anteil die Oberhand gewinnen würde. Etwas salzig (wie mit einem Spritzer Meerwasser) und pfeffrig.

Comments

Das ist ein Tropfen, welchen ich mich für die Bar im Himmel wünsche, wobei der Zaubertrank die sicherlich nicht allzu reich dotierte Kasse von Petrus gleichzeitg nicht übermässig strapaziert.

Nose:
Fresh wood, American oak vanilla, wood shavings, graphite, tobacco sour note, glue, engine oil, dark bitter cold Earl Gray tea, lavender, rosemary and citrus.

Taste:
Again lots of wood, licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, sandal wood. In the development some nutmeg and very nice tannins.

Finish.
Nice and long, with a leather note, wood tannins and caramel sweetnes.

Very very nice...

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Deep notes of sherry, caramel, almonds, cherry liqueur, liquid chocolate, orange zest. Notes of good old cognac.

Taste

Very chocolatey, sweet, deep and rich. Orange zest, all kinds of berries. A heavy sherry cask influence, but it worked really well with the character of the spirit.

Finish

Quite long, mouthwarming, notes of chocolate and gentle fruitiness appear again. Towards the end, it feels slightly spirity and young, but it's acceptable here.

Comments

A really good dram for the price and highly drinkable at the full strength.

Gin clear
Nose

Very hot on the nose undiluted. Nice metallic/rusty notes, engine oil (pot still markers for me). Green apple peals.
Water: More aromatic, some cooking herbs, mint and eucalyptus oils.

Taste

Excellent. So thick, so full of flavour. Sweet, fruity, overripe oranges, black pepper. Tasty.
Water: some sherry notes. Fruit sweetness, and much more spices - pepper and nutmeg

Finish

Long, spicy and some cereal sweetness.

Comments

The palate here is very impressive.

Bien sherry et grain. De la noix de coco, de la vanille, de la prune, des raisins secs, du cake cuit. L'ensemble fait penser à un vieux rhum de mélasse. Alcool très bien intégré

Taste

Alcool toujours bien intégré, bien équilibré, en continuité du nez. on dirait un vieux rhum brut de fût, avec pas mal de bois, de vanille, de noix de coco. Des notes de vieille prune élevée en fût, de la mirabelle, du bois toasté et des zestes d'orange. Légère amertume en fin de bouche. 

Finish

Vieux rhum, bois, vanille,caramel, des pruneaux et des raisins secs, un peu d'épice. 

Comments

Bon produit, agréable et facile à boire. 

Je pense que la distillerie gagnerait en qualité à ne distiller que de l'orge malté et pas une proporition de grain, ce qui rend ce redbreast un peu trop sur le rhum.
