    successful red wine finish - quite complex
    • Nose
      First, freshly ground coffee, then the Rotweininaromen spread, fresh bread, redcurrants, raspberry syrup
    • Taste
      Creamy and soft in the mouth, vinous, cherry and ripe raspberry,
      After a while, more spicy oak and pepper will emerge
    • Finish
      surprisingly dry, oaky, slightly bitter, the red wine note lasts for a relatively long time

  3. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A finish in the wine barrel, which does not kill the whisky, but complements the distillery style fruity. Succeeded.
    • Nose
      Sweet, almost overripe berries settle in the nose. Chewing gum with forest berry aroma. Some spiciness from the nutmeg, but only very discreet. Overall, a rather restrained nose.
    • Taste
      In the beginning pleasant on the tongue, with a jam of raspberries and blackberries. Slightly sour at the beginning, but this impression disappears quickly. Milk chocolate and toffee sweets, with the time oak aroma, it is dry.
    • Finish
      In the medium-long finish predominate chocolate and nutty notes and some sawdust. The berry fruits have already said goodbye some time ago.

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Lots of sweet, red fruits caress my nasal tip. Ripe strawberries are clearly identifiable and form the summery-fruity foundation. Redcurrants and green apples provide a refreshing, slightly acidic impact. Floral hints, raspberries, cherries, subtle notes of honey and a touch of oak spice join in the mix. The alcohol content of 45% is very well integrated.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is very full-bodied, soft and oily. A very slight tingling at the tip of the tongue I perceive. The fruity-sweet impression of Nosing continues seamlessly in terms of taste. The sweet, red fruits are almost omnipresent at the beginning. Plenty of strawberries, raspberries, a few redcurrants and juicy cherries dominate the flavor base. A "red wine impression" arises. Delicate vanilla notes, chocolate and mild oak notes crystallize a little more clearly on the second sip. The taste of the whisky is perfect for summer. Very harmonious and balanced, without overstraining with a multitude of facets.
    • Finish
      Medium. Also on the home straight dominate the red fruits, which remain pleasantly sweet. Associations of a fruity red wine, I register here again. Spicy oak notes are now more noticeable, but rather stay pleasant in the background. The whisky leaves a slight dryness on the palate.

    • Nose
      Grasses, earth, herbs, nuts, a very small amount of sulfur, cress on cotton wool, then it suddenly becomes really sweet and also fruity, strawberries, strawberry jam, honey, caramel, blackberries, blueberries, coconut, coconut macaroons, bounty (the chocolate bar ), Plums with a little cinnamon, the herbaceous taste is completely gone, very light wood in the background
    • Taste
      Berry and fruit gums, red currants, nuts, some coffee, some wood, a few herbs and a touch of chocolate are also extremely tasty, extremely dangerous

    This is quite mild, but also quite good. I like the complexity and gentle oaky touch on the development. That earthiness on the palate is interesting. It's candy-sweet in a somehow satisfying way. Like that feeling of pride at the end of Halloween when you'd dump your full bag of candy onto the floor to pick out the good stuff. I just wish it had a little bit more punch.

    Nose: Fruity and sweet. Cantaloupe, strawberries, peaches, red table grapes, and some red-flavoured Pixy Stix. Honey, toffee, toasted marshmallows, and banana bread. Potpourri and white tea. Buttery puff pastry and a bit of yeast. Raspberry jam on toast. A little sulfur.

    Palate: Medium texture. Floral and on the arrival, with cool tropical fruit (guava), fizzy sherbet (orange), and yeast. Sweet rich grape, almost like a mild Manischewitz. Slightly grassy and herbal on the development. Develops to gentle oak, earth, and barrel char. A mild worn leather note, and something like an old wool sweater. Plenty of slivered almonds and some cranberry scones.

    Finish: Medium-length. Floral, sweet, and tuning slightly earthy. Dark chocolate-covered strawberries, dried fruit leather, dried cow leather, and orange marmalade on toast. Sponge toffee, waxy milk chocolate, cola, and powdered ginger. Flowers in potting soil. Slightly coastal maybe?

    Relatively simple whisky, the wine finish fits great, tastes delicious without having to think about it a lot. Good in autumn when summer is just over. I like it

  8. Double Barrel scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Really nice and staying both complex and intense despite the reduction. A Wis-QEE (Quick Evaporation Effect)!

  9. Captain.Islay scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Fruity and fresh, the influence of red wine is noticeable but not intrusive, not particularly complex, the alcohol is well integrated. An after-work dram for summer.

      85 85
      Short-medium length, dry, orange, some walnut, raspberry

    Sweet red fruits, especially berries, show the red wine barrel maturation. Vanilla and caramel give a fine, velvety note. Finally, I find some forest honey and oak wort.

    I first notice a smooth fruit note with grapes and wild berries. Now milk chocolate and a clear citrus freshness appear. The Tormore looks very creamy but not heavy. Vanilla and a malt note round off the sweet taste impression.

    Medium length finish with fruit and some oak.
