    Interesting barrels and a really good drinkable (young) Malt with the expected weaknesses.

      Interesting combination of very young malt and very fruity wine barrels. Ostensibly a little immature - although not so much in the direction of "New Make" - and behind it extremely sweet and fruity. At a maturation in red wine barrels, I would not have thought, much more to a sweet dessert wine. Some oak can still be guessed, but is negligible. Not mature yet, but not bad at all. Although the wine barrels here are probably so strong / were that the basic character was essentially superimposed.

      At first, the same picture as in the nose. Somewhat immature malt, here with a light (!) "Obstler-note" (pear!) With a strong youthful hint. In addition, again the strong influence of the barrels, which bring a nice fruit sweetness. Here, the malt but for the first time something set up, you can clearly see that here was worked with water. Leaving the Puni on the tongue for a few seconds, the flavors disappear almost completely. The oak is very covered. Sounds worse than he actually is. You can drink that very well, because there are much worse representatives in the market.

      Short and sweet, then he is gone. Disappears relatively quickly and without great aromas. Positive - missing notes can not be found either. But somehow watery in the finish. Lack of maturity and water allow him to run out of air here.

  4. Goethe scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Quite a good job done here for a 3-year-old whisky.Concerning price/performance ratio: 6/10
    • Nose
      Sweet red fruits (very winy), berries (currant, blackberry), raisins, orange peal, hints of smoke!
    • Taste
      Dried red fruits, caramel, dried oranges, berries, hints of pepper. Dry.
    • Finish
      Medium. Coffee, dry leather, some smoky oak getting very dry.

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    OK, only three years, and you can tell. But he's pretty decent for that, no obstetrician or sourdough, like other mainlanders, not sprightly, and I'm a gooseberry fanatic, he's got something interesting of his own. 50 € are somewhat steep for the pure enjoyment, but still quite fair in relation to other (often worse) exotics and baby distilleries.
    (And the bottle looks really good on the shelf, even though it looks strange on pictures.)
    • Nose
      it has a good portion of fruitiness, different from usual - spiny and red currants, fresh, not quite ripe, slightly acidic, overall quite youthful (but not scratchy or metallic), in the background a bit of whisky (caramel, honey), but the berries dominate, which I like quite well (even gets a drop of water, then it gets even gooseberry)
    • Taste
      Green gooseberry on the go again, then sweeter, caramel, candy ... has something of Irish Coffee, if it stays longer in the mouth, plus a decent pinch of black pepper
    • Finish
      medium long, mild coffee, liquorice, black pepper

    • Nose
      Refreshing towels, Autan. Some lemon and orange. Freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      Clay soil, damp cellar. Then a little sweeter with orange, honey, rübli cake. Slightly alcoholic, medium-long.

  7. domani scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Quite interesting flavor play in this Puni. Very fresh and fruity in the nose and the spicy on the palate testifies to a certain precocity. The best puni for me so far - 13.05.2017
    • Nose
      Cereals, wine aromas, gooseberries, fruit sweets, dark berries, raisins, delivers a promising freshness but fades too fast
    • Taste
      Beautiful dark sweetness, brown sugar candy, slightly oily, peppery, honey, cotton candy, Kinder Country, aromatic and spicy, even a little Lackritz
    • Finish
      medium

  9. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    The best of the Puni Whiskys so far and quiet good for 3 years aging, but need to stay for 5 to 7 more years in the cask....
