  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The 5 years in the Sauterenes Casks are already very noticeable. Occasionally scratches the threshold: Too much of a good thing, but still gets the curve.

      The Sauternes wine barrels are immediately noticeable with a slightly (pleasant) scruffy note. Damp wood and wet leaves. But only at the beginning, because candied cherries and candied apples come quickly. A touch of roasted almonds - now bratwurst and Rievkooche, then the fairground feeling would be complete. :)
      No, it's a pleasant sweetness that spreads in the nose. A nice spice mixture of marjoram, tarragon and cinnamon is added later and lets the candied fade into the background.

      Sweet start with wine gum, raspberry drops and fried chewing strips with strawberry flavor. Also here at the beginning rotten, damp wood and fermented grapes. Dry wood chips, astringent. In addition to marjoram and tarragon, a good portion of pepper.

      The sweetness is retained for a long time, as are the spices. Now also dark chocolate and cold espresso, dry wood.

    For me, the noble sweet white wine runs through the entire sensory experience. On the nose it is accompanied by caramel-sweet notes of the first fill bourbon casks, on the palate the European oak takes over with a little wood acid and distinctive spice, which leave an intensely warming feeling.

      Botrytis! Noble moldy white grapes with very highly concentrated fruit sweetness and their typical honey-like and fermented impression. I love that! * Candied apricot and pear. With caramel-vanilla white oak. Flowery with elder, cloves and a few green twigs. Refreshing apple compote with cinnamon. Maple syrup. Amarettini.

      The second half of the maturation in the Sauternes barrels made of (in my opinion) European oak is noticeable here: spicy, initially slightly biting wood, which also has some wood acid. Then again the noble rot and the fermented with intensely concentrated tartaric fruit sweetness. A grip on the spice rack: allspice, some chilli, white pepper, star anise ...

      Melty, light fruity, vinous acidity. As if I had drunk ice wine or Sauternes made from rotten grapes and sucked a piece of delicious oak with it. A lot of the spice of the European oak, in which this whisky was finished, remains on the tongue. With dark chocolate, very warming pepper and lots of black coffee, with nut nougat. Dry and also slightly astringent.
