Whisky Reviews for Pelter 2014

  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Pelter definitely took the safe route, releasing quite a tame spirit and opting to bottle at 46% and not cask strength. The maturation also reflects this with quite a lot of bourbon cask influence and just a little wine cask influence. This is a good thing as it shows that the guys behind this know what they’re doing and how to properly handle maturation.The whisky does feel quite young and doesn’t have too many unique points about it, but is a decent sipper. The spirit shows potential and the fact that they have access to various wine casks means this could go in some interesting directions.Reviewed in my blog:https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2017/10/13/pelter-distillery-inaugural-single-malt-whisky/
    • Nose
      Starts off very aggressive and young, full of new make notes, sour porridge and yeast. This dies down after some glass time and lets some really nice character through. Tropical fruits. Guava. Dessicated coconut. Artificial strawberry flavouring. Currants. Slight cinnamon and sandalwood. Dry eucalyptus leaves. Licorice. Particle board.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruit. White grape juice. Dry wood. Light honey. Maltesers. On the end some green herbs, mainly wintergreen. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Maltesers and wintergreen carry through.The herbal notes kind of fill in the space where the whisky was. Icing sugar. Honey. Cream cake.
