  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I feel the beer is too much for a whisky it is tasty
    • Nose
      no movement immediately after pouring: malty and spicy, sweetsweet, a beautiful smooth note of forest magenta, vanilla, smooth fresh notes later with movement: unchanged, ethereal menthol note is clearly added
    • Taste
      smooth oily tingling onset, woodruff vanilla, yellow fruit, tingling, fresh menthol note, sweet fruit, carambola (star fruit) malty freshness (beer feeling) and some oak on the back palate,
    • Finish
      medium long, slightly bitter again, oak, fruit slightly sour, again beer feeling with malt and acid

    Nose: really cool with lots of bourbon cask, vanilla, flowery sweetness, honey, some sweet and sour fruit (orange), followed by the young spirit with lots of malt and toffee
    Taste: also again velvety and tingly sparkling (a bit more than the hand-crafted), lots of toffee and malt, vanilla, lemon cake, the finish is mid-length with baklava and honey, something dry and woody is also added.
    Great young malt again a shovel (unfortunately priced) on the hand-crafted sets.

    Again, the nose was promising, on the tongue shows then but the youth. The finish is rather disappointing. But he here with this nose, 6-8 years longer in the barrel ...
    • Nose
      Pleasantly fresh nose, the scent of a spring breeze in the countryside. Wildflower meadow, cherry blossoms. Vanilla, honey, slices of orange. The fresh, light aromas are followed by notes of chocolate and toffee, as well as a hint of cereal not too intrusive.
    • Taste
      Here comes surprisingly little. Strong, he is, yes, but a little honey, a little vanilla ice cream, more is not at first make flavors. The cereal touch from the nose comes here too, wood comes after a while. Nut chocolates. Over time, he gets dry.
    • Finish
      Medium to short, nutty with honey.

    If you have the ice cream sweets in your head, they keep track of you all the time =) https://www.google.de/search?q=Eisbonbons It is much better than the previous standards, but the youth is just too strong in the nose, which is really no wonder after 4 years. The barrel was certainly very well selected. The retrieved prices are not suitable and targets rather in the direction of collectors.
    • Nose
      Oranges, malty sweetness, noticeable youth, corn flakes, vanilla, cane sugar, ice candy
    • Taste
      Creamy sweet, slightly sparkling, again like ice candy, light fruit, very mild lemon
    • Finish
      Very mild and rather short, but makes you quite hungry for the next sip, slightly oaky spicy and even lighter bitterness, the ice-candy will not let me go here either
