About four weeks ago, German online whisky retailer whic.de released four new bottlings, three of which I will review today.
|Bottled for:||Whic Whiskycircle|
|Age:||9 Years Old|
|Category:||Single Malt Scotch Whisky|
|Cask Type:||Bourbon Barrel|
|Cask Number:||317 (part of)|
|Number of bottles:||48|
Piles of vanilla, joined by warm white honey and a tang of cinnamon. There is also some dried seaweed in between. Followed by white peach, candied apples and a touch of melons. Something floral in the background – maybe lavender?
The entrance on the palate is sweet, yet powerful. Warm caramel sauce. Then some pepper corns, ginger and salt, leaving a slight tingling on the tongue. A noticeable sourness of grapefruits comes through towards the end.
Rather short to medium with a slight sourness. Caramelized mountain peach and a whiff of pepper.
A well selected bourbon barrel which does not mask the distillery character.
Score: 85 / 100
