  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A very strange whisky. Nervous nose, harsh and sharp palate. Completed unbalanced.
    • Nose
      Light and clean. Cucumber and cooked vegetables. Burnt matches and rubbery. Hints of smoke. Strange industrial nose.
    • Taste
      Fresh with a spicy peppery edge. Lemon and sweet yellow apples. Some oak. Zesty. Also vanilla and honey. Cloves and mint.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Bitter-sweetness. Menthol.

    [October, 2013]  Finally I emptied bottle no. 488 that I bought for 79 Euro in September, 2006.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85.  My notes state "nothing special about it"...

    Not a grand
    Strathmill, if you ask me. And whatever you do, do not add water!
    • Nose
      The nose is light and
      very clean, but a bit weird. The sweetness is unnatural. A bit sour too. It is
      hard to pin a fruit on it, unless maybe some pear and unripe pineapple. I am
      also reminded of cooked vegetables. Carrots and potatoes. Weird, no? Halfway
      through some oat appears. All of it very light and it does not improve with
    • Taste
      The arrival is
      alcoholic and peppery. Mint makes it fresh. Now I do get some fruit on the
      palate, mostly lemon, zest included. The pears return, joined by apples. There
      is a nice bit of woodsmoke there. Midpalate it becomes honeysweet with a
      truckload of honey and vanilla. Diluted it turns a bit bitter and emphasizes
      the chemical sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is not
      short, but not long either. The mint has the final word.
