  1. whisk-O-thek did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Wow, start - 51%, Breathtaking ... Definitely a Slyrs: oak, malt, raisins, vanilla, the second sip oats, hay and floral aromas on the tongue spread: a warm summer day in the Bavarian Highlands appears before the inner Eye... In the end, a slightly leathery note, not unpleasant, combined with dark chocolate and a hint of bitter almond to a long, intense finish that conjures up minutes on the palate: Sauternes, sherry, port - everything that makes a big malt! It will be interesting to see where this can be opened with some water, in any case you get a lot to discover here for your money:
    91 points, certainly with air up - I'm still waiting for a Fläas Bavarian mountain spring water for further exploration!

    • Nose
      Vanilla; Syrup; a hint of citrus and herbs. Malt and oak. Alcohol not dominant. Smells like fermented fruit
    • Taste
      Strong, fruit and shower. Slightly bitter. Slowly a trace of sherry and some barrel comes. The shower goes now slowly leather. For me, but more shower.
    • Finish
      Sherry shows up in the finish. Light fruit and a nice cinnamon seasoning from the barrel. Go towards very dark chocolate

    Like next to the Slyrs Marsala barrel currently best from the Slyrs Range.
    • Nose
      Grapes. Nuts. Chocolate. Very tasty and aromatic nose.
    • Taste
      Spicy and strong. Chocolate and nuts. Not so voluminous rather straightforward.
    • Finish
      Medium.

    I was not sure what it actually smells like. I compare again with the port, which now seems much better than before. But the esteemed 51 smells like alcohol only. And he also tastes that way, after alcohol and nothing else ...
