Lower Saxony (German Niedersachsen). Link to pages: https: //www.hammerschmiede-spirituosen . ... ls-whisky / Whisky Glen Els is definitely worth the attention. According to whiskybase, it has the highest rating of all outlets all over Germany. The Hammerschmiede distillery, where Glen Els (and also Alrik) are made, is located in the Harz Mountains. For example, gin, herbal liqueurs or fruit spirits are also produced. It is clear from the name of the whisky that it matures in three different barrels after port, aging is 4-8 years old, whiskybase is of course 4 yo.
First sniffing ... and I'm excited. This is the ultimate luxury of barrels after the port. Specifically, they are Ruby Port Hogsheads, Tawny Port Hogsheads, and Ruby Port Firkins. So beautiful and at the same time strong smell of port I have not seen any whisky yet. Sweet spices, milk chocolate, raisins, flavored acacia, touch of red wine, Belgian pralines, milk caramels, cinnamon, cloves. There is plenty, the aroma is excellent. I'm almost afraid to drink so something does not go wrong. (95 b)
No, he did not come, this whisky tastes like it smells, which is just a bomb. Maybe I'll repeat, but I'll just summarize my notes. Strong effect of candied spice, milk chocolate, raisins, pralines, milk caramels. One small reproach perhaps, the weakness is quite a short touch. This is perhaps the only tiny frog in beauty. (93 b)
This is a sensation for me, I did not expect anything like that. I still sort of summarize both the smell and the taste that this top whisky reminds me of rum in its overall speech, I would say that Dos Maderas 5 + 5. I think that the supporters of the rum should also be interested.
