Revival At long last we have managed to release our first whisky , Revival, made entirely since we re-started in 2008 and which is widely available. For us at the distillery it seems to have been a long time in coming and we have taken great care in the preparation of the product and the packaging so that we delivered a quality product of which we were proud. For those of you who have yet to try it, the whisky is a marriage of first fill and refill casks which have been finished for 6 months in first fill Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a robust whisky, sweet and fruity while rounded and creamy with perfect balancing sherry notes and a slight whiff of sea-air. While we were pleased with the finished product the real test is how it would be received by customers and we have been extremely pleased by the very positive feedback which included some great tasting reviews from writers and bloggers and a fantastic bronze award in the under £35.00 category at the Scottish Field Awards.
Wet tobacco, walnuts and a little bit of smoke at first nosing. Musty and sour, wet bark. After a while notes of ice cream float and Kahlua are coming up. Changes a lot with pleasant and unpleasant aspects.
Cold coffee and cheap sherry, oaky, somehow bitter and dry. Not very enjoyable in my opinion.
Long with the coffee-sherry-oaky aromas lingering on. A whiff of smoke. Has a slightly metallic aftertaste.
Okay for a 3 year old Scotch whisky, but not a whisky to buy for enjoyment.
Ouch, du soufre. Ça faisait longtemps, je me demandais si j'y étais toujours sensible. La réponse est oui. Cela mis à part, le nez est pas mal. Sur le zeste d'orange, la noix, un peu de résine . Un léger picotement alcooleux , aussi. Mais bon, c'est un petit jeune....
On retrouve malheureusement le soufre . Le développement est assez agréable et de longueur moyenne. Un peu de cuir, une petite touche de tourbe/fumée, mais pas très définie . La confusion entre tourbe et sherry sème le doute.
