The taste of this malt reminds me of a German whisky thanks to the dominant wet grain note. I don't want to bad-mouth this bottling, but it didn't suit my taste ...

Thanks for the experience, but the malt really wasn't as bad as you might think!
Light amber shines in the glass, an indefinable fruit note arises from the Premium Snifter. Furniture polish? Fermented fruits? Sweet and oddly strange, but not bad in terms of basic character ... Cereal notes? Malt? Somehow it smells of cereal grains swollen in water ... A slight glue note is released, a hint of vanilla, hardly any fruit flavors ... Nasal I would almost guess a German whisky.
The first sip flows mildly with a harsh grain note on the tongue. Tart fruit and wood aromas stick to the palate, the second sip appears pale and reserved. To be honest, I can't get anything from this malt, it lacks expression and character. Zest and orange and lemon peel, again cereals swollen in water come to my mind. There is minimal sharpness, with slightly tart wood tones it is then already in the aftertaste.
Slightly tart, malty, minimally dark fruit and light citrus zest. Of course, the grain notes so often mentioned come into play again ...
