  1. SpeyburnClanGermany did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    BUT: the malts are a bit like a society mirror these days. The old 10s with depth, character and a sincerity. The modern CC, a bit like the sleek, faceless hipster zombies who all look the same and no longer have their own ideas

    Taken in isolation, this bottling is certainly not bad. But compared to serious single malts, it doesn't stand a chance.
    • Nose
      That's it, the Speyburn pear of the modern age! A white wine note, Chardonay, green grapes, pomace, grassy.
      Vanilla, white sugar, malt, glazed beers, marshmallow, white oak, a little cinnamon with a hint of desiccated coconut.
      Quite a lot for such a cheap broth ;-)
    • Taste
      very sweet, Hubabuba gum, pear, pepper, plastic, wine, semolina, 46% ?? don't notice, buttery soft.
      Still weird leg notes, from metallic to somehow not yet round or wood problems. It looks designed and smoothed
    • Finish
      Finish: rather short

    • Nose
      Shiny gold

      Today again the memory of knight's peppermint. Then a floral fragrance. Some vanilla, caramel and dry cereals. Today again the fresh pear, green crunchy grapes and honeydew melon. Together a nice white wine aroma. This violent note of cinnamon still gets through today. Wrigley's Big Red was named in Tasting as far as I can remember. Fits like chalk and cheese. In addition, an artificial sweetness.
    • Taste
      Very artificial start. Freshly cut spruce wood. In addition, neatly sweet vanilla. Subtly nutmeg and sour, fresh peach. Some pear schnapps and bitter almond slivers are now asserting themselves.
      With the second sip there is more dry rust dust. The taste becomes a little more peppery, but also flatter.
    • Finish
      Short to medium length. Peppery spice and dry bitterness. Somehow it gets duller in the mouth
