Whisky Reviews for Croftengea 2011 SMWS 122.23

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The nose isn't that striking but the palate and the finish especially make this a bit of a hidden treasure; it doesn't seem underaged - it could be 10 or 11 years for all I can tell. No very sharp notes, this is a very poised whisky. However, if you don't like that artificial sweetness then it will be a bit of a put-off.
    • Nose
      peat, but very much like Ardmore this is mainland peating style, lemon cleaner
    • Taste
      lots of peat and soft lemon, with some coast; saccharine sweetness
    • Finish
      a bit sharp and sweet and satisfying, not much from the hogshead

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The first nose had the sweet smokiness of honey-cured bacon and curried smoked salmon cubes, followed by liquorice and the light medicinal smell of muscle rub. On the palate a ferocious attack of sweet perfumed smoke but, taking into account the age, all fairly well balanced and quite satisfying in a mysterious way. With water, like a salt and oil body scrub enriched with Dead Sea minerals, sweet almond oil and a snuffed out perfumed candle. To taste, a very sweet start before charcoal grilled spiced pork herb sausages arrived and a lengthy slightly bitter finish.
