“Schöner Hampden, obgleich ich etwas mehr Ester erwartet hätte bei einem DOK. Alkohol gut eingebunden.”

“#4234 03.09.2023 this was a nice blind tasting where I saw the black Glencairn tasting glasses for the first time. First off, price to quality is pretty good. A fruity thing with nice esters and I'd say some nice funk as well. Needs to rest for a good while to release all the flavours and remove the bite from the ABV. The empty glass is nice and has some polish and light dried fruit.”

“Very ambivalent here since one may not actually believe that one is drinking a DOK here. The nose is good but not intense. The taste is a lot of honey until the finish with ester notes that remain very much in the background. You could also be really bad and write Don Papa on ester, but then it is not quite so bad.”
