  1. malthead-sven scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Although I favor Fassstärken, this is a bit too sprightly and one-dimensional, even a lot of water and time cause not much in the taste there are bright spots.
    • Nose
      Malty and alcoholic in the first impression, nut cake, cane sugar, very sweet, yellow pears, almonds, honey, the sprightly note holds even after adding water in the glass, later lavender and heather, even sweeter
    • Taste
      sweet and slightly woody, slightly spicy, accompanied by grapes, amaretto and sugar candy
    • Finish
      quite strong but at most medium long, rather little oak, but nutty and sweet, here makes the PX-barrel noticeable

    Whisky that needs to be appreciated.
    • Nose
      The nose starts with a fresh heath, very woody, and herbal. Almost a hint of meat. So a very interesting nose in general.
    • Taste
      A sharp taste at first, very rich and full. Lots of meaty flavours and a bit of soap.
    • Finish
      With some water the finish is more delicate but in general the middle part of the whisky stays.
