  1. Andy-13 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    28.04.2019 Whiskey fair in Limburg tried.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Not to run away, but unfortunately goes in the direction: irrelevant.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Caramel and honey are in the nose. A touch of turpentine. Freshly cleaned linoleum floor. Lime juice, grapefruit. Vanilla. Mild spicy.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Not much on the tongue. Milk chocolate can be discerned, some honey, mild fruit, without being able to identify them more closely. Vanilla pudding.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Rather short, dry, with chocolate and almonds.

  3. DerDennis! scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    While the whiskey in the nose is still quite interesting, with lots of vanilla, malt and light fruit, it is slightly sprittig on the palate, very woody and bitter.
    The short finish is again woody and bitter.

    According to Clonakilty, this single Grain is 8 years old.

    ---

    The finish the color and also some of the flavors. I have sour red fruits and some rhubarb, the latter especially in the finish. Prickelt something in the mouth, not yet quite ripe strawberries, seasoning.
    You can tell from the grain less than I expected, but with the sourish note it does not knock me off the stool.
