  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      The combination of sherry and rum is intriguing, mixing plant and chocolate notes with a fleshy side. Fresh and young, a little too direct. With the opening, we have sulfur and toast notes quite marked.
    • Taste
      We find the fleshy texture conferred by sherry, but in a version little greedy, almost bitter. Beautiful presence.
    • Finish
      Traces of sulfur. Fruity and properly spicy.

      An honest malt with a combination of atypical aromas but that works.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

      Whisky n ° 1806

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A easy drinking young malts, compare to other baby whiskies, this one is quite interesting
    • Nose
      Sherry then rum, let's see....
      A lot of sherry influence, a bit oaky, very matured noses for a 8 YO
    • Taste
      Rum, black sugar, sugar cane, simple and fresh, ginger
    • Finish
      Short and spicy, drying

  3. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    No, he does not have anything that makes him feel good, but he has the sprightly alcohol that makes him sick. The flavors in the nose are still the best thing about him.
    • Nose
      Malty starting, sweet and over-ripe pear, a bit foul hay, later subtle exotic fruits and roasted aromas
    • Taste
      Sweet, bright fruits, strong alcoholic, bitter
    • Finish
      Rather short than medium-length finish with a light oak but pronounced, saliva-stimulating bitterness.
