Kaleva scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

A total disappointment: flat, oaky and bitterish whisky without any complexity or peasant sides. Probably it failed due to the unsuccessful selection of the cask. Not recommended for purchase especially for the asked price.
  • Nose
    Tad spirituous, green apples, sour orchard berries (red currants), rhubarb, dusty barley, chalky notes, wet wood, lemon zest. Water doesn’t make a noticeable influence on the nose.
  • Taste
    Rather peppery, with a good dose of oaky bitterness, malty, tad chalky. With water it gets sweeter, with lemons and apple mash notes, some nutmeg and porridge.
  • Finish
    Short, bitterish, malty, oaky, with notes of horseradish and apple seeds.

Quit a nice whisky but young, you can notice it by the missing layers in taste and body. I like it yeah, would I buy it for 79 euro or more, no.

Don't support the flippers, never pay more then €200 for this bottle!
Besides that, this is an amazing whisky and one of the very best Bunna's I had!
  • Nose
    92 92
    A very pleasing nice and thick oily wood and nutty nose. Packed with lovely nice fruit notes and some chestnut. A very well and decent nose. This is quite well matured in good sherry wood and bottled at the right moment.
  • Taste
    92 92
    Oily, thick, nice and mature. Very good aged wood notes, tutti-fruti, raisin, chestnut again.
  • Finish
    91 91
    Long length. A tad sour, but overall very nice and sweet, some fudge note here and some hint of something like camphor. There is certainly something fresh in here.

An interesting experiment from Mackmyra, letting an AI compose the profile of a whisky. First taste was mediocre, but having it from a bottle open for a few months the event was somewhat more exciting and the basis of this review.
Recommended both for the curious origin and the nice experience.
  • Nose
    86 86
    Rather mild and forthcoming, pear and citrus, barley, honey, fresh hay. Light and uncomplicated.
  • Taste
    87 87
    First sweet heather honey and lemon juice, apricot and pear. Then midst emerging barley and yeast, an unmistakable anise almost into sweet licorice appears. Pretty clean and distinct flavour components. Very quaffable indeed.
  • Finish
    85 85
    Lingers on the yeast, barley and honey. Fairly short departure.

etwa77 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

very difficult to score.. i like it, but it leaves me wanting.. the elements are interesting and rich in flavor, however the total doesn’t quite make it past the finish line for me.. i keep coming back to it however and i will be sad when the bottle shall be empty.. but i have to admit, that musty wooden note in the nose is really quite something.. 90, goddamn it!

A spicy sherried nose with hints of burnt matches, the palate is really sweet but little sulphur on show thankfully.
Not as good as i was hoping but ok

Blenders Glass.
Наливайте 20-25 мл. - так лучше раскрывается ароматика.
Шикарный молт, особенно если учитывать стоимость. Балланс 22

dongolzo81 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

When Lidl launched that bottling, it was probably the cheapest available bottling containing spirit distilled in 1981. Is it worth its initial price? It is imho. Maybe a reason for much higher prices on the secondary market nowadays.
Fruity and sweet-sour sherried, but not very complex nose, grain hardly noticable, neither on the nose nor on the palate. Much more complex on the taste, starting very spicy, nuts, some leather, chocolate, the cask is dominating the spirit here - not suprisingly after 37 years of maturation. Dried fruits evolving again and complementing. Just missing more intensity - you need to take a mouthful instead of a sip. Unfortunately the just 40% hinder the dram to be present on the finish for a long time. Rather on the chocolate again, suprisingly without any bitterness at all. However, too short or at least lacking intensity if you ask me. Delicious dram, but I would have it preferred at 46% abv to unlock the full potential.

Some OBE, spicy & nutty on the nose, hints of peat & sherry.
The palate is really dizzy and vibrant but the dizziness has subdued the flavours at first but then a Parma Violet note emerges which is really nice.
The spice note increases, the flavours are nice but it does lack balance but, that said overall i enjoyed it.

A nice dram, I thank my friend for the sample.

    Let it breath for a while, it gets better to my opinion. A lot to discover in the nose, other members allready wrote about it so no need for me to ad more of the same.

    Lot of taste, I like it.
  • Finish
    85 85
    I expected more, peppery, too strong for me.
