  1. Moses scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I would never have discovered without yokes. He had tasted it in André's garden once. I only got it much later, when the rehearsals were jammed. The only thing that makes me struggle to buy it is this unknown metallic note. Does it get annoying at some point !?
    • Nose
      First thought, ... matured very well. Pleasant light fruit notes with vanilla pudding and powdered sugar. Fresh Bodensee apples and a very pleasant density. Salivates with a great tendency to cling. Clean nose. There is joy. After the second sip, an unknown note is added. Are those gooseberries !? Well done.
    • Taste
      Full and heavy with a fruity, creamy character. Light fruit and a balanced ripe impression. A high quality with a lot of experience in choosing a barrel. Respect to AD Rattray. I'm really impressed for a moment how thick and full the pear and apple flavors linger on the palate. In the background there is something special, slightly metallic on the edge of the tongue. Not uncomfortable, but very special. I can't find a description of it. But what makes him special. This is also present in clans. The transition is warm and full, with no weaknesses.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, it leaves no doubts. Very stable body and made knotless. I am now grateful for the great rehearsal. A big thank you to Jochen. 10cl was the minimum for this class of malt. I'm considering whether I should keep a backup of it. The PLV is very good.
