Whisky Reviews for Magilligan Pure Pot Still

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.00 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 63 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Dried leaves and husky note. Dusty nose of cereal warehouse, although
    quite bread-y, but rather raw. The stillman making a wee late cut
    probably. :)

    Palate:- Acidic and strangely dry with grapefruits sourness linger on.

    Finish:- Harsh, hints of cough syrup and ethyl. Short. Rather unpleasant.

    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  3. Willie JJ scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Very enjoyable dram
    • Nose
      Lovely malty, vanilla nose on this. A touch of feints perhaps?
    • Taste
      Mmm, very nearly barley sugar. Cream and madiera cake
    • Finish
      Quite spicy and nearly hot, but ultimately controlled. Medium length.

    There is also an 8 year old peated Magilligan, as well as a 1991 Vintage Sherry Wood Finish. The unpeated well version costs around 37 EUR in Belgium. Very easy going card players whiskey.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh, very sweet and smells of caramelized pineapple cubes. It has got quite some lime and peach and a hint of nuts. Softly spiced. Fresh and fruity, but very light. Do I detect a bit of peat, even? Probably just my imagination.
    • Taste
      It is crispy on the palate, very accessible, with a slight bite from the spices. Very nice. A touch grainy. The emphasis is on lime here.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and probably the most interesting part of this Magilligan. It turns nicely warm from some white pepper, is slightly drying with again the ghost of peat wondering around.

  5. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This is a very interesting whiskey, it's only 5yo. So fruity, but the finish is a disaster, very tasteless. With a better finish, it could easily get a couple of points more..
    • Nose
      The nose feeling is a cooling one. Very fruity, exotic fruits.
    • Taste
      So many layers of fruit, and a nice spicy attack.
    • Finish
      Short finish, rather tasteless...
