Whisky Reviews for La Famiglia Nostra 2007 - Simply the Breste LFN

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.22 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    with water: it works very well without adding water, with a dash of water it will be a tick sweet, fruity, and the tannins are not so much in the foreground. However, the taste loses something of its power

    Conclusion: a successful finish, Glen Moray works well known with white wines (Chardonnay), the strong Kerner Auslese tops the whole thing again, but still leaves the distillery character a chance. However, the probably quite small barrel barrel with neat Tanninfracht beats here.
    • Nose
      88 88
      fruity wine aromas (sweetened peach, gooseberries and honeydew melon), plus the earthy / mineral character of Glen Moray with malty undertones, as well as a generous portion of oak tannins (nutmeg and in the background even a few dried cloves)
    • Taste
      87 87
      clear sweetness with many fruity aromas of wine (peach and melon), fat and nice oily, the tanins join after some time with a strong oak beat
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium, here too the fruits dominate first, behind the now very strong oak with a slight bitterness

  2. Gerson scored this whisky 85 points Newbie

    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity aromas wrestle with the oak barrel, which smells pleasantly of wood. Whereby the oak flavors prevailed in my nose.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pleasant sweetness of the grapes spreads gently in the mouth and lingers for a long time in the foreground. The thought of liquid clear forest honey swells up briefly.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Gentle and dignified to medium long.
      Pleasant and not intrusive.
