Begemann Whisky Eichenschild 5 Year Old

Mellow, Sweet Fruity
The Gutshofbrennerei Begatal has been producing whisky hyperlocally since 2016. Only raw materials from the Lippe region are used. The family tree of the family business can be traced back to 1284 - the building in which the distillery was built has been standing since 1535.

The Begemann opens with damp grass and unpleasant petrol. Unfortunately, the smell of new wellies with metallic notes doesn't make the whole thing any better.


The single malt whisky can best be described as watery with a little sugar, vomit and ethanol. With some sandpit sand.


There is virtually no finish, apart from a slight afterburn.


Well. Something has obviously gone completely wrong here. It feels like the stuff has been in the metal tank for 5 years. There are a few consolation points for the hyper-regional approach.

Rating: 19/100 - Catastrophic (Marcel: 19 | Sascha: 19)

Value for Money: 1/5 - Very bad
