Braunstein 7 yo (2011/2018), Private Collection, 54,2%

Review #727
This is bottled for a Danish whisky society called “Holbæk Whisky Society”. It is peated spirit matured in a Bourbon barrel for 5 years, before it is finished for 2 years in a small Oloroso Sherry cask. Only 54 bottles were made. Meaty sweet peat in the smell. Some grassy notes and hints of oak and dried fruits in the background.

A little alcohol kick in the taste. Dried fruits, but still fresh, with a touch of white fruits. Crisp apples and sweet dates. The sweet peat really comes forward in the finish! Some vanilla and oak as well.

Give it some time in the glass and it will grow on you. For a young whisky, the balance between the Bourbon cask, the Sherry cask and the peated spirit is great! Flavour-wise, a little of everything. I will give this 85/100 (21/21/22/21).
