      An incredible amount of nail polish remover. Very citric. A bit of pear and somehow milkshake.
    • Taste

      High levels of alcohol, a bit of grape fruit. Clear wood tannins.

      Fairly short, slight bitterness.

  3. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A lot of spices, gra[e fruits, like an old cognac, toffee and ice creams.
    • Taste
      Grapes, dark chocolates and toffee, strong herbs, camphor, smooth except some tannins.
    • Finish
      Short, spicy, simple

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nope. That's not for me. I do not need it again in the glass.
    • Nose
      The alcohol is not hiding. Then comes green apple and pear peel. A lot of citrus. Cereal notes. Again and again brush and citrus cleaner. In addition a little wet wood.
    • Taste
      In the mouth only oily with alcohol. Then sourdough and breadnuts. Also a bit darkened bread crust. Maybe some mushrooms too. Overall, a lot of cereal with alcohol.
    • Finish
      Now it gets more bitter. Not very strong but I do not like the style. Not really pleasant.

    As a side note, I often have problems with grain whiskies. Grain-lovers (and considering the other ratings, there seem to be quite some) should take the score with a pinch of salt.

    I already had lots of trouble with the other grain shop-bottling. Although not quite as toxic-tasting as the strathclyde, the cameronbridge could not win me over either.
    • Nose
      Lots and lots of alcohol, then I get some kind of strawberry joghurt-milkshake-y-thing. Not much else happening.
    • Taste
      Industrial alcohol, barely any flavor at all. Water helps insofar as that drowning the whisky takes away the alcoholic edge without adding any interesting added flavor.
    • Finish
      Mercifully short

    I go to each grain with new hope, was not always disappointed, this is not my case.

    With a Grain distillate the barrel has to deliver something, in this case it is unfortunately not the case ...
    • Nose
      80 80
      Alcohol, malt, forest honey, polished furniture, strawberry.

      If the alcohol goes a bit, it will be kräutrig, but remains "one-dimensional" ....
    • Taste
      77 77
      Very alcoholic, with water even more biting.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Bitter, undifferentiated, weak ...
