Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Fruity nose with orange and lemon joined by vanilla and butterscotch, with a hint of smoke.
Palate: Silky and sweet at first, with Stollen, toffee, butterscotch and vanilla. An ash-like smokiness is present in the background, too.
Finish: The sweet notes slowly disappear leaving a delightful light smokiness.
Comment: This is a great introduction to German whisky. Fruity with a hint of smoke, this is approachable, but also has enough complexity to sip and enjoy after dinner.
Producer's Tasting NotesNose: At first, mildly fruity, malty, complex and spicy with lots of caramel, vanilla and toffee. Then fine raisins with a hint of baked-cookie dough with minimal trace of wood smoke.
Taste: The taste is mild at first and well balanced with notes of fruit cake. Shortly thereafter, in a slow increase in developing a complex mixture of fine vanilla-caramel sweetness, thick toffee and mildly sweet oak. Rounding out the taste experience with a minimal hint of sweet smoke and a little Mandarin.
