Well Folks, here's a novelty for you: Bavarian Single Malt Whisky. Has anyone heard of this before? I hadn't until yesterday evening. It's called "Slyrs" and they've just got a bottle of it in at The Dub Irish pub in Giesing.
Obviously I was very skeptical about trying it, but I have to admit, it wasn't at all bad. The taste was, and this is where I put on my Jilly Goolden hat on, light, sweet, absolutely no smoke. It went down very easily with a weak aftertaste. I even detected a little olorosso in there which reminded me of the Edradour malts. Not at all the battery acid that I was expecting.
So there you go. I probably won't ever drink it again, but I'm not going to dismiss it either. Maybe I'll give it another go in ten years time when they've got some properly matured stuff (the oldest is currently 1999).
