  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    a good dram not "expensive" at all, with spices up, well-established woody, fruit well-compote, the malt that comes out, in short, a good time not to think too much!

    Nice profile, double helmet is power!
    Slightly harsh in taste, perhaps youth makes itself felt. Not a bad short-lived aftertaste. First acquaintance with kurna, I would like to try the releases of this kurna.

    Alcoholic, metallic, possibly oak
    Not my thing.
    I do not need that!

    Smell: The mineral and wax textures are the subconscious of the wine body, which will make the whole very three-dimensional. The creamy feeling turned into a special fruity flavor, like dried passion fruit, rock sugar gourd, and a brand of throat lozenges that we bought in the supermarket.

    Drink: The taste is refreshing and smooth, but the entrance is spicy and prominent, and there is a burning sensation of the tongue, the fat is richer, and the finish is like a glue picture.

    Sense: I think the balance is the highlight of this glass of wine, the sweetness of the Shirley barrel, the mineral wax of the original winery, and the cream of the Bourbon barrel can all show their strengths and complement each other. The level is also quite rich, and it is exactly this. The picture that is inspired in my mind is also vague, and it is even difficult to accurately describe what I smelled. The difference between taste and smell is a little big!

    Dried fruit, toffee, spicy, lemon, pear, green apple, toast and barley.

  7. coldsun scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Peat, zesty citrus, green grass, barley malt. Finish is long, spicy and zesty.

    Allright, but that's about it. Some chili cheese will enhance the caramel flavor, that's the interseting part
    • Nose
      Briny, cabbage, fruity, slightly smokey, sherry with some vanillin
    • Taste
      Fudge, spicy, sharp, caramel
    • Finish
      Warming with caramel

    Still quite promising in the nose, it breaks down quite a bit on the tongue and on the finish. That's a pity.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Refreshing maritime nose. Mineral. Cut flowers, sweet raspberries, honey. In the background toffee sweets.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Cocoa and coffee beans, pepper, thyme, rosemary. Much less flowery and fruitier than the nose. Some dry old wood. Milk chocolate, toffee, honey. A touch of the mineral impression from the nose.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Rather short, while dry. It slips over your tongue pretty fast, leaving milk chocolate, coffee beans and mild pepper.
