  1. Dottore scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    blind tasting Bourbon, wait! There was no bourbon announced ... but what else is that? I think he's great. To finish very bourbon-like, the departure makes me startled. Due to the adhesive note in the nose there are prints, otherwise very good 88 points!
    • Nose
      urrghhh, glue gun! Then there are very nice notes: Christmas stollen, raspberry liqueur, light nut notes
    • Taste
      Also excellent, marzipan, some vanilla, lots of sweet notes, like a Turkish dessert. Then slightly bitter
    • Finish
      Warming, a hint of sweetness, then the bitterness dominates. Finish is scotch-like

    blind tasting
    A really exciting whiskey, in the mouth quite different than the nose suspected. Delicious!
    • Nose
      first glue, then vanilla, caramel, sugar, citrus, orange, apricot, berries, a little nut.
    • Taste
      sweet and creamy, cotton candy, marzipan, vanilla, butter biscuits, liquid butter or thick butter on a fresh bread roll.
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, oak, nutty.

    The hammer! This whiskey is characterized by an incredible fruitiness and grain notes. An almost perfect whiskey for me! I would type in a grain, port or bordeaux finish, probably first fill.
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: Fruity apricots pleasant notes of glue mix at the beginning of nosing. Sweet, almost indefinable, fruit infatuates my nose. Peaches and apricots, sweet vanilla and heather emit a wonderful aroma. Fruity grain, malt and sweet berries blend perfectly with the pleasantly incorporated alcohol. I almost can not satiate myself on this nose!
    • Taste
      Fruity notes of cereal and slightly sour fruit make you hop for a taste sensation after the first sip. Berries, doves, vanilla, malty sweetness, what a wonderful aroma! This fruity aroma is comparable to Port or Bordeaux finish, perfect!
    • Finish
      The finish reflects the insane fruitiness of the nose and the taste. Voluminous exudes the finish its wonderful aroma, fine tart wood notes are added.

    BLIND TASTING!

    Tip: this is not a single malt but bourbon, the nose is his best side, 78 points

    - Bourbon
    - 43 to 46%
    • Nose
      liquid glue, resin from a coniferous tree, woody, some alcohol, then orange and grapefruit, wet wooden bench, very light vanilla, later some cinnamon and hazelnut
    • Taste
      very full-bodied and creamy, but hardly alcoholic, marzipan, diluted, it is much weaker and lighter on the tongue
    • Finish
      rather short and spicy, right at the beginning but intense, again with some glue
