Ist das Whisky ? Geht auf jeden Fall als Gin oder alte Fass-Grappa durch, womöglich sogar als Raki. Sehr speziell

Nose

Wow what a peculiar nose. One of my friends wrote something about how this is quite similar to the juniper scent in gin and he was spot on. Underneath that there’s some fresh cucumber. Fennel. Bitter green grass. Bok choi. Under all that the bourbon cask influence reveals itself, some tropical fruit, sandalwood and vanilla. Along with that creamy Glen Keith porridge note.

Taste

More gin related stuff. Juniper. Creamy vanilla. Bitter wood, oh so bitter after the initial hit of flavour. Then slides into a very strong anise note.

Finish

Long. Anise. Porridge. Juniper. Menthol. Vick’s cough syrup. Wintergreen. A little candied pineapple peeks through at the end.

Comments

This was not what I expected at all. These gin associated flavours were prominent all the way through. I’m not sure if the rum cask held one of those very herbal tasting rums, but it sure tastes like it. It just doesn’t work so well with the bourbon notes, they’re not unbalanced here, just don’t really gel well together. The finish on this was the most remarkable though, so much like Vick’s.

Der ist ja mal echt speziell!
Die Nase sagt: Das ist ein Gin!
Die Zunge sagt: Das ist ein Gin!
Der (Rest-)Kopf sagt: Kann ja gar nicht sein!!

Hochinteressanter Malt mit einer sehr starken Wacholder-Menthol Note. Eigentlich kaum zu glauben, dass der 21 Jahre in einem 1st-Fill Bourbon Fass gereift ist und dann noch mal 24 Monate in einem Jamaica Rum Fass gefinished wurde. Bin sehr angetan!!!

Hmmm...auf dem Label steht: "Highland Single Malt" - vielleicht haben die sich total vertan, und es ist doch ein Gin?
