Tasting Notes

"The aroma of smoked bacon is the first thing that comes to mind nosing this single malt, and the Dreifaltigkeit is indeed a meaty whisky. It's pungent and burly, with a roasty smokiness that's distinctively different from the briny peat of Islay. Though rich in color, the barrel ageing provides more char and mellowing sweetness than any over the top vanilla notes. It's a unique dram, and one that Smokeheads will take great pleasure in sipping by the fire."
