  1. SpeyburnClanGermany did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Conclusion: it could be an advertisement for Speyburn!
    • Nose
      Fantastic perfumed bourbon nose, caramel, vanilla cake batter, freshly cut grass. Pear skin, woody, plastic.
      Quite peary, damp paper, barrel muff (sucked out), a bit fresh
      Herbs, especially a little sage. Moist forest floor, bourbon,
      unripe plum, some acidity, raspberry.
      Vanilla, ripe fruit
      Opinions differ widely.
    • Taste
      that's a flatterer, that's fine, gentle, mild, vanilla,
      the typical pepper is also there, with cake batter, slightly pleasant
      woody, beautiful vanilla on top ..... fine

      it is mild and slightly peppery in the second sip too, that is
      dangerous drinking substance ... creamy pear and cream spirit with vanilla,
      garnished with some garden herbs and a bitter start.
    • Finish
      The finish is really tart. And stays dry for a long time
      bitter back. Washed around neatly in the mouth: a lot of pepper!

    • Nose
      White wine

      It starts with caramel, vanilla and cake batter. Then from the background, freshly cut grass. And a slightly chemical fragrance. Green apple and some moldy wood. Gooseberries and damp cardboard. Now smells a bit of white wine. In addition, light, fermented fruit notes.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweetish start. Pleasant pepper and again the cake batter. Vanilla and a dried herbal note. Slightly bitter pear skin. A little rancid butter and again the moldy wood. Subtly licorice and with the second sip comes more nutty bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Herb - spicy. Pepper, herbs and a sweetness to prove it.
