  1. Danlow scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    A distinct cherry on the nose and palate, otherwise barley malt. But more aromas do not come through. Not a bad “beginner”, but from my point of view it is 20 € too expensive. In terms of taste an average whisky, including the PLV, unfortunately below average.

    Amazing. I fully expected one of those schnaps releases from Germany or Switzerland, where they all seem to try their hands at producing local "Whisky" and don't succeed. Proper craftmanship, yes, but using the same technique like they do for their Kirsch, Williams and Korn results in much the same end product.

    Total surprise, this smells and tastes like Whisky. None of the inferior wannabe products that flood the market. And what's more, this smells and tastes like good Whisky. Of course, the distiller doesn't give you a song and a dance about myths in conjunction with this beverage. No trolls deep in the forest or Vikings sailing the seven seas and they are not waxing endlessly about age and angels taking their share, this is just a honest product for people who don't fall for marketing tricks.

    Now, one, and only one, real Whisky from Germany on the map (and there's only one from Switzerland as well). Forget the rest, go with the best.

    From blind tasting:
    Nose: Does not smell like whisky, but rather like a liqueur, very soft and sweet, lemons, pears, limoncello, birch wood, fruit drops with pineapple flavor, fruit quark, lemon cream cake - the bright, sweet, milky-lemony prevails. Fruit tree blossoms. Taste: rather thin, light wood, not as sweet as the nose suggests, but again the notes of lemon cream cake, lime, pear puree and a little vanilla Finish: slightly bitterness, vanilla, here again the notes of fruit tree blossoms, which come through here again

    Sometimes I do not understand the rating system of people.

    How can this 3yo simple average single malt whisky can be rated with 80+ points?

  6. Drochaid scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Fruity aromas reminiscent of raisins, ripe yellow fruits and a hint of vanilla and coconut. Taste: wonderfully fruity, spicy with light hints of chocolate, delicate melting.
