Whisky Reviews for Kingsbarns 2016

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Irrelevant Speysider, would be my tip.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    OK, considering the three years it is quite sensational and it is not really a Speysider either. I shared the dream to dram, which is out of proportion to this one. If the Dream to Dram collapsed after a few moments and actually only left New Make notes, this one pretends to be growing up. So definitely, the distillery has potential!
    • Nose

      Dark yellow fruits, somewhat fermented, right after pouring. With some toffee. Peach, changes and then goes more towards slightly fermented pear with a splash of lemon.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Very hot and powerful in the beginning, burns slightly, but the mouthfeel is rather watery, slightly sweet, dries a little at the back.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long finish, dries further. Slight bitterness and distant acidity in the second sip.

  2. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Jung & wild should hit it quite well, price clearly too high for the extremely young age
    • Nose
      85 85
      Green apple, pineapple, a little sharpness, very fresh
    • Taste
      83 83
      Fresh, fruity and sweet with chocolate, clear notes of chili.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Lasts a long time, again with a distinct chilli heat, so it burns a bit on the lips
