    With 'The Kasc Project' Kinahan's dares to break new ground in whiskey maturation. Specially made so-called 'hybrid barrels' were used for storage. The staves of the barrels are cut from five different types of wood: Portuguese, American, French and Hungarian oak, as well as chestnut.

    Is really different from other whiskeys. Did the project succeed with different staves? Well, at least it would not have failed.
    The price / performance ratio fits. But buy again, I don't know. Maybe my opinion will change after 2 or 3 attempts ;-)

      Cloves in oranges. Some vanilla and cinnamon
      Very interesting.

      Sweet and dry, pleasantly soft, some wood in the background. I can also see plums.

      only briefly, if you think that's it, there is still bitter wood.

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    this drift towards bitter is interesting, but not really great, you can taste it, but I don't have to drink it more often
    • Nose
      Caramel, orange jam, some ginger
    • Taste
      first sweet, caramel, then dark chocolate-> coffee-> charcoal (!)
    • Finish
      warm, coffee, cloves

  5. Varrek scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Sweet, parfumy, a bit sourly with almost no finish...

  6. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: woody, with a predominance of chestnut ... A certain fruity is sweet and sour, but I can not determine what it is, pickled cucumbers ...
    Taste: cleaned, sweet and light
    Finish: practically absent
    A good drink.
    The guys riveted barrels from different rivets, an innovative approach ... I love courageous experimenters.
    On the most drink it.

    Quite different and tasty. The nose still likes best. The other types of wood are already noticeable. But then he builds more and more in my opinion. The finish takes a bit of pleasure then. Still a nice experience.

      Scary sweet plum compote with a little vanilla. Add some cinnamon sticks with some anise and cardamom.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The sweetie goes back. There is a dryness and some spice. The plums remain, plus some acacia honey.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short to medium. Something bitter. But something goes in the direction of coke.
