Reisetbauer & Son 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky Review

Austrian distiller Hans Reisetbauer grows the barley for this single malt on his family’s estate, and the identity of those grains has been masterfully maintained. The 12-year-old release leads with lively cedarwood, spice, and orchard fruit aromas, and a distinctive herbaceous note. Savory, green notes flow onto the palate,  culminating in spicy, dried fruit flavors. While lighter than many single malts, this whisky delves into new depths of complexity and approaches a botanical territory that almost feels like barrel-aged gin. This one's a sipper.
