    Another tasty German whisky from the Advent Calendar. The Land of Saxony-Anhalt. Link to site: http://www.gerhard-buechner.de/ In this distillery they also have a nice selection of their own rum, fruit spirits or liqueurs. According to the brochure and various websites, it should be a minimum of three-year whisky matured in French oak barrels after red or white wine. Which is therefore very bohemian, I would expect a more precise and clear description from the Germans. How is it meant OR? Will I buy one bottle and it will be from a barrel of white wine, and someone will get from the barrel to the red? Even in the information book, whisky labels like "Salzatal Whisky No. 2 Port" are quite confusing. On the one hand, on the pages of the distillery, nothing like the dovetail Port, and it's more than a No., no.
    • Nose
      Beautifully acuminated, fragrant, warm, spicy. Fruitful acidity hand in hand with milk chocolate. Also gooseberries, figs, dates, the influence of red wine, and goes up to the top sherry style. (90 b)
    • Taste
      The taste is smooth, again very similar to the sherry style. Chocolate, dryness and at the same time acidity, a sour acidity on red wine. It is creamy in flavor, gradually drying, the conclusion is hazelnut. (88 b)
    • Finish
      So this was my mummy for me. Big surprise, in addition to three-year whisky (or something between three and four years). I would take a bottle right now, and it is a very good price. What might have been in the barrel? Damn some vague information about the barrels, a little bit to be afraid if he buys the same thing he had a sample.
