The Shining Dram
Sonnenwiechser Str. 21
|Fassart / Nr.:
|Farbstoff (E 150):
Nose: Pleasing and inviting; a fruit mix with ripe yellow apples, juicy oranges and dried pears; warm caramel; almonds; creamy, silky cereal and bread flavours with some butter; honey and bitter herbs
Taste: Creamy and silky mouthfeel; surprisingly dry and restrained; straight in charakter with lots of old bourbon oak, dry vanilla and some pepper; honey and bitter herbs again and some malt flavours and almonds
Finish: Fades away gently, leaving a dry silky feeling on the tongue
Some thoughts on the malt:
A well matured 24 year old malt. No marketing product, no heavy peat, no overpowering cask, not super sweet. It's the understatement that makes it so interesting. And to have a whisky in cask strength with only 43.5 % (which makes it very easy to drink without adding any water!) is something special!
Take some time to listen to a dram speaking with a soft voice not trying to convince you by screaming at you ...
Tasting Notes by Peter Krause (slowdrink.de)
Comment: A summer breeze high in the Alps, this is the headline here, Fragile but so complex and lovely. Great balance and maturity, floral lightness, like a summer wind in a flower dress on an ‘Alm’. We also have fruitiness (kiwi, strawberry, Austrian apricot), coconut, iron, grass and vanilla cream. Very elegant and a must-have for fans of this profile. Big sips recommended.
