A 3-year-old German single malt whisky from the Slyrs distillery bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
A rare chance to try German whisky (a lot of which is consumer domestically), this is Batch 1 for the distillery from Boutique-y.
Bottled at 52.5%, it's one of 691 in the batch.
Slyrs was founded in 1928 but has only been producing whisky since 1999.
Nose: Apple slices dipped in honey, freshly cut grass, a few hints of peach.
Palate: Sticky caramel, peppery barley, chocolate digestives and lemongrass.
Finish: Gingerbread and caramel, plus a hint of apple.
"Bavarian single malt here from the Slyrs distillery! The label shows a joyous scene in a beer hall from the Oktoberfest, complete with a big ol' boat on which a band plays to the crowd!
"The Slyrs Head Distiller Hans is chatting to one of the punters in the massive crowd. 'Bist du der Whisky-Mixer?'."
