    A wonderful experience. Absolutely outstanding compared to other cask finishes
    • Nose
      dry, the usual red wine soaked oak perfume 
    • Taste
      great touch of the Cabernet Sauvignon coming through. In my opinion a slight hint of green pepper. Never experienced before.

      Leather at the gum. Wild berries accompanied 
    • Finish
      long lasting, again the leather, wild berries, green pepper at the very end.

  6. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity. Grapes. Currant cake. Dried apricots. Fine wood smoke cools the nose. Honey. Toffee. Cocoa. From the background, oak aromas penetrate the nose.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. Pepper. Dried fruits. Raisins. Getting sweeter. Honey. Some oak.
    • Finish
      Long. Red wine flavors. Raisins. Figs. Spices. Significantly more oak than expected. Dark chocolate.

    I think the sweetest whisky I've ever had. I like this! Nicely complex in the nose and concentrated in the mouth on the essentials. I like it!
    • Nose
      Directly spicy, light smoke, caramel candy, mint, lemon zest, actually a bit gluey, pear, the glue appears when you bring the whisky strong in motion, the waves are gelegelet the note is gone, some smoked bacon, slightly iodine, nut , a bit of oak
    • Taste
      Very sweet, pear, light smoke, very very sweet, caramel, I said sweet ?, the second sip of the smoke is clearer, beautiful camp fire smoke, nut, hazelnut, the sweetness is also from sip to sip
    • Finish
      Still sweet, now slightly salty, fruit bowls, the smoke is gone
