Patrisbrunna X-Mas Port 2016 Double Cask

Rich, Dried Fruits
KÖ13 in Paderborn is actually known for its large selection of food and delicatessen. The restaurant also sells a small number and especially some of its own single malts. Today we have a whisky from Paderborn in our glass.
The whisky from Paderborn was first matured for two years in an ex-bourbon cask and for another two years in an ex-port wine cask. We are impressed by the deep, strong red colour.

Single Malt Whisky | 4 Year Old | 46,00 % ABV. | 90,00 €/l | Kloster Dalheim Distillery | bottled by Kö13 Paderborn | produced in Germany | Whiskybase ID 233679


A winey-sweet scent of red fruits, such as currants and blackberries, is in the air. Accompanied by malt and spicy oak, we perceive something that reminds us of cherry nectar.


The single malt occupies the tongue, but is less full-bodied than the nose would lead one to expect. A good portion of tannins accompanies a sour-bitter fruit note. Interestingly, there is still a malty sweetness lying on top of everything.


The short finish is slightly oaky-spicy and reminiscent of tobacco leaves.


The colour is really exceptional! We were able to taste a single malt that is quite mature for a maturation period of 4 years. If you're looking for a dessert whisky for Christmas, this is the one for you.
