Braunstein, Library Collection 15:1, 46%

Review #665
This is bottled 2015. It is matured in Oloroso Sherry and D’Yquem Sauternes casks, and only 1000 bottles were made. The smell is very light! Sweet ripe apples and pineapple on the nose. A bit of oak and toffee.

Fresh crisp taste. White fruits and vanilla sweetness. Sweet white fruits and white (sweet) grapes. Burned caramel and over ripe pears. Mostly the sweetness from the pears. The finish is very sweet. All sugary.

If you like your whisky sweet, this is you. From the start to the finish, it is the sweetness that is in focus, and I am very curious to what would have happened with longer maturation, or at least at a higher strength. Anyway, good sweet casks Braunstein have found here! I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
