    This was probably the first +100€ bottle I've ever gotten after a recommendation from my friends theograph, mascht and edei. I loved it back then, and after all these years, I finally managed to get my hands on another bottle for 99€ which made me happy. After all those years I still absolutely love this whisky. Absolutely brilliant.
    • Nose
      Cinnamon, mustard, sugar, cocoa powder, roasted almonds, honey, tree sap, sawdust, burnt twigs, smoked salmon, fresh cut grass and hay. Sounds cliche for India, but I get currypowder. A slight note of sourdough and fried onions. FUNKY
    • Taste
      Starts very sweet but this funky note of curry and mustard stays. A very fine note of salt and smoke, maybe smoked salmon with a squeezed lemon and onions, the tree sap is also still there. Even a bit meaty, bratwurst?
    • Finish
      Smokier and Saltier than before, very much on oyster water and again smoked salmon + seaweed. Takes a while but the funny curry and msutard note comes back, even some sugar syrup is there. In the end oak takes over a bit and notes of espresso come to the forefront. Last for ever!
