This is one of the typical young German whiskies that strongly rely on wood extraction from fresh casks while the spirit is secondary. – Rating: 70/100

Bold spicy flavours dominate this whisky. While you can notice it is not very old, the fresh wood does a good job in covering the signs of youth. It might be a controversial dram but I like it. – Rating: 83/100

Coillmor 3 yo American Oak 2009/2013

If the German distillers just were a little more patient with their whisky. This is still too rough and newmake-y to be really enjoyable. – Rating: 65/100

The sherry cask certainly adds some pleasant flavours, but some slight vegetal notes are a bit detrimental. – Rating: 69/100

Bosch Schwäbischer Whisky vom Alb-Dinkel

September 1, 2010

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. I can’t make up my mind if it’s good or bad that it tastes a bit watery. – Rating: 55/100

Rothaus Black Forest Single Malt 2006/2009

November 10, 2009

The worst dram I ever had so far, mainly for the moldy mushroom flavour. Very immature and unbalanced. The brewery makes excellent beer. They should stick with that in order not to ruin their reputation. The price of €50 per bottle is ridiculuos. Avoid. – Score: 20/100

Slyrs 2005/2008

August 11, 2009

This whisky was aged three years in fresh American oak barrels. It’s a bit of a crossing between a single malt and a bourbon. Not bad for a 3yo, but you have to like the wood influence. – Score: 68/100
