Colour: Lightly (very
lightly) coloured rainwater
Very aromatic herbs with heavy undertones of new tyres (rubber).
there's no rubber on the palate, just extremely fragrant
Finish: Very long and aromatic
Overall Impression: I
have heard and read both good and bad reports about this whisky,
so I was very unsure of what to expect. I have also tried
various drams from the Fleischmann distillery (Blaue Maus /
Grüner Hund .. etc) and also Slyrs, so I am familiar with German
whiskies and, although this one is far away from its Scottish
counterparts, it compares very favourably with the 3y Slyrs.
It's very aromatic and fragrant, but I still think it's more
akin to a typical German Schnapps than a whisky, although I look
forward to perhaps retrying this if it's allowed to mature for
many more years.
