- This grain fellow is a banana coconut boost. Nothing more here to know.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
Yellow fruits, banana, coconut, pear, vanilla.
Banana, coconut, sugar, vanilla, grain and some kind of articial flavor.
Short. Banana, coconut, vanilla and oak.
Bourbon cask dominated aroma, with high corn on mashbill. Clove, plum
with touch of maple. Sweet custard with subtle heat and pungent on the
P- Sweet spice infused fruit cocktail. Burnt vanilla. Waxy.
F- Short and juicy, soapy and syrupy. Subtle bitterness linger. Charming, but a sip too much for me.
— at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Tested in a blank test of three single grains at the bottom. This Greenore 8 yo hit me the worst, Kilbeggan 8 yo then was a little better (79 points), and best was North British 1997 SV (82 points). It should be noted, however, that in taste the differences were really minimal (G8 77, K8 and NB equally 78), I had the feeling that all the samples were tastefully uniform, and so it was more interesting in the test, those jumps were really great (NB 86, K8 80 and G8 75). I did not see it in one, I was so impressed by my scent, and to some extent the similarities of certain parts of the aroma with some of the US rye and also the skin of the younger and cheaper Caribbean rums.
Sharper impression, thinner, lacquer, grassiness, sharpness of alcohol. The smell is simple, with salad cucumber and melon peel. (75 b)
On the tongue, a leathery impression like a young Caribbean rum, a velvety feel. Alcohol is still quite undeclared. (77 b)
Felt veleda, coconut, wood
like a gnole
- Nose coconut, dissolvent, Haribo and light woody. Mouth very light, grain, sugar. Short final. Easy to drink.
- The smell is sweet and fruity and also slightly sour: for me it smells like green apples and zotrus fruits. But also a slight note of glue is present, which makes one think of Bourbon. The taste is really sweet. Again I feel a fruitiness. It's fresh and pretty one-dimensional as well. The finish is very short and again very sweet. A very slight bitterness is there, but somehow different from the oak. You can certainly drink the whiskey by the side and he tastes determined also people who otherwise have nothing to do with whiskey. But it also tastes very different than a single malt and is also quite flat. I have 74 points.
