Whisky Reviews for Sikkim Old Gold

  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 67 points Expert Senior

    It really is not boring. Rather so in the face. Very idiosyncratic and as a unique experience actually somehow interesting in an unusual way. But you do not need a second glass anymore ...
    • Nose
      70 70
      Peculiar fruit flavors. It's like honeydew melon on ham. Banana. Very cute.
    • Taste
      65 65
      Very sweet, very soft. Again banana. Pretty weak chest. Alcohol holds back very much.
    • Finish
      65 65
      Finish medium long. sweet and then bitter. Stimulates the salivation pretty much

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The color is the best of the story '. (Is that really true ?!)
    • Nose
      Braised plastic bag. Modriges, damp wood. Sauna infusion and quince schnapps. Smells a bit of brown herbal ointment. With some time in the glass goes the quince and wheat brandy is now clearly through. Smells like leather fat somehow.
    • Taste
      Whoa ... it tastes brutally bad. I just do not know how to honestly describe it without being sued. So .... I'm hard suck tasting noma ... tastes like pain drops. Herbs, fermented fruit. Old Paroli sweet with eucalyptus and some menthol.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, medium. Somewhat bitter eucalyptus and cheap wheat brandy.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 50 points Expert Senior

    This has nothing to do with whisky in the narrower sense. If you study the bottle carefully, you can actually put it all together. I quote: Ingriedients: demineralised water, extra neutral alcohol, malt spirit, contains permitted natural color (150a) and nature identical & artificial falvours. Well then post!
    PS: my 50 points is the minimum, which I forgive according to my logic, but you could also go deeper ... scary.
    • Nose
      Artificial on the nose, slightly sweetish, orange aroma (artificial) and some rotten orange peel, a hint of malt, a touch of mint, slightly ethereal. It tends to smell like whisky, but rather artificially. OK, it's not that bad.
    • Taste
      sprightly, artificial, vanilla flavor, baked aromas, alcohol, some rum aroma. I specifically write flavor, because with somehow natural aromas from a maturation that has little to do, frankly. Then something herbaceous and again the rotten oranges.
    • Finish
      In short, which is the best, slightly ethereal and some bitter orange.
