  1. Lorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Really interesting whisky. Great nose. A few drops of water also transform the palate into something great. 89 points.
    • Nose
      Smoke. Intense at first. It has something of glowing cow dung. Then comes a fresh herbal breeze. A little dill, a touch of Cucuma. In the background a little honey. Creamy but intense. I mean something like strawberries and trolli gummy bears. Everything stays within a cow stable. Some wine-soaked wood comes through. Herbal peat flavors. It goes on the direction of Mate.

      Water: fresher, lighter, a little hay. Hardly any smoke.
    • Taste
      Cool the whisky flows into the mouth. Immediately comes the smoke. Increasingly ashy. Something bitter. Tobacco leaves. Something earthy. Unfortunately, a trace of acid wood.

      Water: Even a bit more bitzelnder. Honey is better for this. Ash remains there. After swallowing, spicy, dry tobacco unfolds. No more acidic note.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitter ash remains. Orange peel. Seaweed.

    Sample was pulled one day earlier which shouldn't make too much of a difference...
    Süß, fruchtig, schlotzig, lecker, easy drinking in Reinkultur. 
    • Nose
      Color is darker, more like Brown Sherry, but has that reddish touch.
      Zunächst frische Beeren, Johannisbeeren und Himbeeren, Traubensaft, leichter Rauch und etwas Minze. Eine anfängliche Spülmittelnote verschwindet recht zügig. Erwärmt noch viel fruchtiger, ein Hauch Hefe.
    • Taste
      Sehr süß im Antritt, der Alkohol lässt sich zunächst bitten, bevor er dann doch recht druckvoll kommt, volles Mundgefühl, fruchtig mit leicht säuerlichen Beeren, nach hinten abtrocknend mit schönen Tanninen. Sehr mild.
    • Finish
      Im Abgang trocknet er weiter ab, eine schöne Bitterkeit mit Anflügen von Himbeerkaramellpudding mit Aschentopping, insgesamt eher kurz bis mittellang.
