Whisky Reviews for Koval Single Barrel - Rye

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.75 points

  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Alcohol: 40%
    Aroma: Fresh rye aroma, hay, then a deeper aroma of chocolate, but also cucumber pickle, followed by a slight hint of cloves. The smell looks very promising, so we go for the taste. (87 b)
    Taste: And unfortunately it lags far behind the aroma. He does not deny rye, but in a fairly flat and lifeless form, moreover, it is unnecessarily water-thin. (77 b)
    Points: 82
    Summary: Nice smell, boring taste, pity.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not bad at all, but it does not come close to the bourbon.
    • Nose
      I get quite a bit of wood on the nose, both wood shavings and freshly sawn planks. Also something that reminds me of the peel of peanuts. A lot of nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon take the lead, leaving only a little room for fruity notes. I slowly get some sweetness as if from a pastry.
    • Taste
      It is a touch watery, I’m afraid. Whole grain bread, orange marmalade and a hint of curry powder give it something special. Maple syrup keeps it sweet.
    • Finish
      In the finish – which is rather short – the oak and accompanying spices kick in once more.
