Whisky reviews for Breath of Speyside 2006 AD

8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.85 points.

  1. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This Speysider is too unbalanced, too intrusive and one-sided for me. In addition, too Maggi-heavy.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Sweet, some Maggi (lovage), sherry-emphasized, but also stings the nose properly.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Fig, clearly alcoholic and strong, spicy heat, relatively one-dimensional.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Again, some maggi and sulfur (gunpowder), relatively short but strong.

  8. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It's definitely different. I liked it.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Light amber

      Nose:
      At first it starts a little artificially dry. Detergent with citrus notes. But disappears again pretty quickly. A musty, damp wood note then comes through. In addition something that reminds me of this decorative wax fruit. A little vinegar and pumpkin seed oil. The fruit is more in the fermented direction. More towards plum and black currants. Yeast and sauerkraut broth. Bay leaf and red, tart apple.
      With a little time in the glass, a bit of sweetness develops subliminally. Has a little liquid sweetener in the salad stock.
      It smells really different. I like it otherwise.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet start. Then the wort pushes off the wood nicely. A sweet wood taste with a little wax opens up. Slightly chocolatey with bitter almonds. A little mocha and a very pleasant herbal note. There is still something charring, light-fruity running around with it. Something like charred, candied mango. More herbs in the second sip. Something like sweetened herbal tea. With a bit of sour plum.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First sour and woody. Then the colleague becomes sweet and waxy. A little liquorice is created at the end.

  9. Ruisdael scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Speyside candy, nice bottling! creamy, fruity, sweet and also slightly spicy. Nice nose, caramel, strawberry, cottage cheese. Tastes older than indicated. Finish is long, round and full of currants and a light touch of banana. A topper!
