Whisky Reviews for Peated Highland 08-year-old CWC

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.67 points

  1. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Aroma is dark and brooding with a meaty, spicy and BBQ sweet profile that I just want to keep smelling; Palate pulls off the same notes but with a pronounced tobacco note; Finish is a long winding fade that goes from sweet to savory and back. I love this whisky.

    • Nose
      This is a very, very pleasant nose! Impressive after only 8 years. This has a great fresh earthy peat note with even a farmy touch. This is being combined with gentle and round sherry notes. Sweet raisins, berries and creamy milk stuffing in 'Kinder' chocolate. This is absolutely fabulous.
    • Taste
      Silky and fresh upon arrival. grenadine syrup, chestnuts and a dry sherry oak note. After a while it gets quite aggressive. Chili peppers take over control. Not one to hold in your mouth for too long. That's a pitty.
    • Finish
      A medium-long and pleasant finish. It is a bit peppery though. So I will add some water and see what happens. There is quite some anise to be found as well as red fruits.

      It's not a bad whisky at all. The biggest con in my opinion is that the whole seems to collapse a bit after some time and water.

    Sweet and slightly smoky.

  4. Dexter606 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Very sweet, yellow to red fruits and a nice light smoke next to it. Rather simple, but beautiful.
