Jeune et gourmand, un peu caramélisé

Taste

Fruits frais, banane, c'est rond, bien foutu. Du punch (pas la boisson), des épices.

Incroyable pour cet âge.

Goûté blind.

Nose

Sweet (a bit chemical; could be a rye!); vanilla, honey. Robust, some nuttiness. Oh, and nail polish. 

Taste

Could it be a whisky matured in sherry casks? Very nutty. Did I say nuts? I did! Because: nuts. Hazelnut, almond. Spicy as well; spiced biscuit (Dutch: speculaas). Very nice when rolling in the mouth (red fruit), but turns bad when swallowed.

Finish

Extremely nutty; almonds galore in the back of the mouth. Spicy biscuit again. 

Comments

Tasted in an online blind tasting competition (Westland vs. Penderyn) on 8/10/2016.

St. Pauli gave this whisky 77 points

I could have mistaken this easily for a rye whiskey. It's very spicy, with juniper combined with Jägermeister. There is some vanilla too. It's sturdy and not well integrated.

Cheers! Paul
