Whisky Reviews for North British 1991 SV

- A great grain, superbly matured, nice sherry notes ... with 47.4% just right, with a little water the grain taste comes out clearly. Very tasty.
- Another superb sherry grain from North British.
Hazelnut and milk chocolate, raisins, pitted prunes, golden plum.
Medium milk to dark chocolate, intensely concentrated grape juice. Boiled wolfberries, ginseng root - slightly medicinal. Blueberries come to mind, like a german black forest chocolate cake or the Austrian Sacher torte.
Long finishing but diminishes quite fast in terms of the number of notes.
- I don't like it. This peculiar smoky note is not at all good for me.
Wild berries. Coffee and chocolate. Caramel gone dark. Also aromatic oak that is reminiscent of wood smoke or roasted malt. Hints of rather dry rum. Some rye bread. Again and again a little lemon tea.
Grape juice. Rum raisins. Again caramel, but gradually getting (too) dark. Memories of incense. Maybe something like burnt herbs. Then liquorice.
Just a touch of frankincense. Grape seeds. Salmiac lozenges.
- A few years ago I had never heard of sherry-matured grains. North British has repeatedly shown that it can be a winning combination.
Cherry, blackberry, mocha, lemonade and melon.
Blackberry, mocha, smoke, nougatine, ash and tonic.
Reese's (chocolate-covered peanut butter), mocha, cherry and smoke.
