Whisky Reviews for Bivrost Niflheim

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.48 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: Initially fruity notes of sea buckthorn. After a few minutes in the glass, intense summer honey and heather honey also appear. Lots of honey. Underneath are more common ex-bourbon cask notes of dried yellow fruits, mild vanilla, dried coconut shavings and ... well, bourbon. Fruity, honeyed and pretty intense on the nose. I like it. (86-87p)
    TASTE: The arrival is bitter-sweet-fruity, on sea buckthorn and quince, with touches of mango. On the mid palate the wood spice shows up with white pepper and ginger, together with more sweet honey. (83-84p)
    EXIT: The exit is a bit uneven and short; black pepper / wood tannins, some honey and it's all a bit disjointed. (81-83p)
    OVERALL: A very nice debut from Aurora Distillery. Young but tasting and nosing older than its three years. TOTAL SCORE 84 points.

    Pretty,pretty nice young whisky. Nose is clear a young dram, finish medium, on the palate it feel much older, then it is. Like the sweetness and hope for a CS release in the future.
