Whisky Reviews for Speyside Distillery 1995 TSCL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.25 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A fairly out-of-round whisky, especially considering its age. Alcohol sharpness dominates and water unfortunately intensifies the bitter / bitter base note too much without uncovering new, interesting facets. A rather average whisky for me in terms of price and age, which is definitely not worth buying for me (the price of just under € 150 is a joke for what is offered).
    • Nose
      82 82
      relatively closed without water; very subtle sweetness; fermented fruit; Red fruits; Raspberry; herb-spicy; delicate oak note;
      Water and time in the glass release a touch more fruit
    • Taste
      80 80
      sharp mouthfeel; somewhat woody notes appear behind it; peppery; a hint of fruit; otherwise, unfortunately, not much comes - everything is overlaid by the sharpness of alcohol; very out of round
      Water makes it a bit milder / softer and reinforces the fruity notes a little, but does not produce anything new and quickly reinforces the bitter / bitter base note
    • Finish
      77 77
      here too the burning and sharp alcoholic mouthfeel dominates; tart oak
      Water only softens the sharpness of alcohol and makes it bitter / bitter
