    The alcohol could be better integrated. But the Brennereicharacter is still very nice to recognize. The barrel has left its mark. He already has power, and a lot of volume. All in all a good whisky. But definitely too sweet for me. He tastes good to me. But I did not want a second afterwards.
    • Nose
      first a lot of honey, malt, vanilla. Slightly sprightly. But then come the Weinigen notes. Bright sweet fruits. Canned peach. Tropical fruits .... Mango maybe. Definitely a bit overripe. Then some orange, some oak.
    • Taste
      Honey again. Mouthfeel is oily, creamy. Although the alcohol stings something, the whisky has a lot of volume. There really is nothing watery. Then again the sweet wine. Very cute. Already too much for me. Again tropical bright fruits. Some nut
    • Finish
      Long, sweet. Drying in the end. But no chance. The sweetness dominates everything. After a minute and a half, I still have a sticky mouthfeel.

    Got it as a gift. Liked it a lot. 
    • Nose
      A variety of fresh fruits on the nose. Banana to cherry to apricot. It was all there for me. 
    • Taste
      The taste is fruity, floral and very rich. The whisky is rather thick and is well balanced between sweet and fresh sourness. 
    • Finish
      Medium lenght. Same as the palate.
