  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      It is announced velvety. Apple tart / caramel from the oven. Aged. Presents of fruit from the orchard, yeast, and beer bring dynamism.
    • Taste
      Powerful initially, a beautiful sweetness is put in place. Very fruity, the beer is quite marked. Slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      Sweet, delicate and floral.

      The profile is very original, that's what seduced me.

      Nose & mouth 4/5
      Final 3/5

      Whisky n ° 1972

    union for the best?
    • Nose
      very fresh, floral, on the rose water!
      yeast, malt, hops
      it's sweet too with wild honey
    • Taste
      fire water of life!
      grassy, ​​floral, it really looks like the brewer's yeast, it's confusing, a bit bitter, bunting, the leaven of the bread too
      the fruits are amalgamated and set back on the green apple, we also have the impression of lavender, a little synthetic!
    • Finish
      hop
      bitterness
      floral on the rose
      overrated!

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not for people who like classic whisky and reject experiments, because rarely (except from Sweden probably) I had a crazier result, but it works.
    • Nose
      Crazy, virtually no whisky anymore, smells like a mixture of new make and desperados (the tequila-beer-mix), also some young, but very good grappa, peach, mango, papaya, light honey, pear juice, grapes, watermelon, Camphor, turmeric, rose water, hops
    • Taste
      In fact, the tropical beer goes well with Chichibu, you can see Chichibu's banana-creamy-malty character, the exotic nose rug, white pepper, camphor, light honey, young plums, grated coconut
    • Finish
      Dried and roasted mango, papaya, melon, coconut, hops, medium-long

    Thank you @Whisky.Hedonist for sharing the dram
    Tasted 26 Sept 2021

    Nose - Initial lemon like zestyness, upon a quick read, i've got Rose, maybe old dried rose, some hops, malty. With water, aromatic perfume like more prevalent
    Palate - strong ABV numbs the palate for a moment, bringing some oiliness, the hop somehow lead to this aromatic rose for me. With water, more sweetness prevails, lesser numbness
    Finish - Medium Long, lingering sweet malt and hops, very light rose aroma

    • Nose
      87 87
      Very obvious IPA notes initially, smell like some sort of sweet beer, extremely malty and kind of floral as well. Lots of honey, with some really nice mustiness. Very complex and entertaining. Lots of condensed milk.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Really full blast on floral notes. The IPA cask really imparted lots of flavors into the whisky. Loads of artificial fruitiness that you'll find in bubble gum or chewing candies.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet and floral, lots of artificial fruits and bubble gum like finishing. Pretty long.

    The sweet and sweet citrus tropical fruit cedar pepper has a slight cascade of hops and the aroma of the old hops is not obvious.

    • Nose
      81 81
      Cider gone bad, apples that are downright rotten and moldy. Very strong presence of fermentation - yeast, rice vinegar and old cheese. Unpleasant smell like unwashed socks.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Surprisingly sweet and malty, a tad sour from the ipa cask. Bit bitter overall. Light honey, cornflakes, turmeric, gallangal, chives. White pepper, salted egg yolk crisps, dried mangoes.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Feels like an oven roast of furits. Burned to the crisp. Short and dry, unpleasant cider taste. Quite medicinal and pungent.
