  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The colleague starts slightly salty and leathery. A subtle touch of adhesive comes along and brings a wonderful, moist tobacco. A cool touch of anise. Herbs are coming. Reminds me somehow of child cough juice. Cooked, bright fruits. Something like apricots, peach, but also mango. A tart-sweet note is still inside, which keeps coming up. With some time in the glass, wild honey and pear. Lightly chopped grain.
    • Taste
      Mild kick, which is then nice spicy and brings herbs. Nutty bitterness paired with a creamy fruit and honey sweetness. The wet tobacco is also in the taste, as well as the slightly angekockelte grain. Still tastes of apricot jam on a pretzel pretzel. The alcohol gets through a bit. The second sip, ne clear mirabelle brandy.
    • Finish
      Medium. Some bitterness and spiciness. But also sweetie. Drying.

    Quiet day in early spring, sun is shining, you lay in the grass, bees are still sleeping, but honey is seeping through, and you are putting butter on your freshly baked slice of bread. The image that comes into my mind when I taste this whisky.
