Whisky Reviews for The Dark Secret 2006 BD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.15 points

  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very intense on its own. Requires and tolerates a few drops of water that clearly break down the malt.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh menthol-like, light sherry, grapes, oranges, raisins. Water helps and brings out the fruit notes more clearly.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A short creamy start, then comes the "afterburner", which hits the tongue in the form of the alcohol and the barrel flavor. Oranges, milk and nut chocolate, brown sugar, strong oak flavor.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Quite a long finish. At first sweet with plum jam, then the oak notes predominate, strong espresso, with a tendency to bitterness.

  2. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Creamy, vanilla, cappuccino, nutty, (hazelnut, almond), cider, raisins, oranges, chocolate
    • Taste
      Sizzling on the tongue, vanilla, chocolate, malt, pepper, herbs
    • Finish
      In the finish, the cappuccino reappears with nice roasted aromas and plums afterwards
