A fresh, lightly sweet oat-based Whisky aged like a Single Malt.

Joseph Farthofer founded his Farthofer Distillery in 1996 at the age of 24. His family had been farming their orchards and pressing cider in Austria for more than one hundred years, so branching into the distillation of Schnapps — un-aged fruit Brandies — was a natural step for him. Since then his product line up has grown to several dozen Schnapps and specialty liqueurs that are highly regarded across Europe.

A few years ago Joseph decided to take a big risk. Already very successful in producing the classic Austrian Schnapps he had become famous for, he decided to take a chance on the production of Whiskies as well — developing several varieties. Farthofer Nackthafer Oat is a natural, Single Grain Oat Whisky aged in lightly toasted French oak casks. It’s soft and sweet on the nose with a rich palate of toasted grains and vanilla… and it's vegan to boot.

Smartass Corner:
"Nackthafer Oat" means "naked oat" — as in "natural grain."

Ratings & Reviews
In terms of taste, its definitely more Irish in its character than Scottish. You do get some of the described notes of caramel and vanilla, but it is quite a harsh whisky and so that can overpower the palate. It probably needed longer to mature before going in the bottle, although saying that I have tasted worse. For the price though, theres better out there. Much better. And on that note, its only a 50cl bottle instead of 75cl, which further lowers its value.
