  1. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    Aroma is basic but interesting, it shows a bit of youth and raw malt character but not in a cloying new make way (though their new make is pretty good); Palate is less sweet and less farmy than aroma but it’s no less interesting; Finish is warm but short and I really wish it would stay around longer. All-in-all it’s a nicely-executed basic whisky, which is exactly what it’s meant to be.

    • Nose
      65 65
      Super malty, with a pleasant, sweet cereal nose.
    • Taste
      55 55
      Very sweet and a little bit fiery.
    • Finish
      60 60
      Rough, but not gross.

    I didn’t like the whisky, it didn’t live up to its loud name “Nirvana”. It is completely empty, with an extraneous bitterness and some kind of chemical aftertaste.
    • Nose
      Dusty, with hints of stale bread, cardboard and broken branches.
    • Taste
      Dry, bready, with an unpleasant bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short, empty, with an excessively large malt component, with a bias in bitterness and some kind of papery flavor.
