Bosch Schwäbischer Whisky vom Alb-Dinkel

by Oliver Klimek on September 1, 2010

Whisky made from spelt by Bosch Distillery in Unterlenningen, Germany – 40%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Wet autumn leaves, farmyard, a faint hint of vanilla and lemon
Palate: Rather smooth, musty caramel, hints of vanilla, cherry and pepper.
Finish: Medium long, slightly spicy.
Overall: A rather unusual taste from a rather unusual grain whisky. I’ve tasted worse, but I don’t think I would like to buy a bottle although at €25 for 0.5 l it is priced relatively reasonable in comparison to similar German whiskies . I can’t make up my mind if it’s good or bad that it tastes a bit watery.

Rating: 55/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

It’s not really bad (that would mean a rating below 50). I find it “just about drinkable” but that musty character turns me off a bit. It’s alright, but you should not compare it a Scotch.
