  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 86 points Super Administrator

    Quick hit review.

    We are back into grain territory, one of my specialties. The nose is quite appealing, featuring marzipan, hazelnuts and coriander. Honey, cereals and hints of polystyrene emerge. On the palate, a peppery kick of wood spices gives way to caramel, bitter tea and spearmint. Brown sugar and maple syrup mark the spicy and slightly dry finish. It's not the best grain in my book, but pretty decent considering its price.

    RATING: 3.9/5.0 stars ≙ 86 pts → FIRST-CLASS [-]

  2. marcusjang did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    My first single grain. Do I rate it solely based on its own merits? Or do I rate it comparatively to other scotch malts? On two basis; firstly that this is the only single grain I tasted, and secondly since the scoring system of WB is heavily based on scotch single malts, I'll simply omit the score.

    However what was glaring to me was that I simply did not really enjoy the grain. Like many, I was curious as to what grains really tasted like, as grains were the backbone of the blends industry, if anything.

    Although the age has tamed the harshness quite well, there is still a little bit of remaining bitterness that lingers. I'm left guessing if I'm that sensitive to those grain-y, high filling strength flavours. There were some hints of niceties here and there, but the overall flavours were a bit blurry and out-of-focus. Perhaps this is as good as mature grains get without too much cask powers, or perhaps not. I don't think I'll ever find out, as I'm not sure if I'm willing to go further on the grain journey after this bottle.

      Very pleasant, typical grain nose
    • Taste
      89 89
      Oops, where does the sherry come from? Very present in the mouth, previously imperceptible in the nose. Lucky bag
    • Finish
      88 88
      2-3 drops of water let the oak barrel come through, almost doesn't look like a grain in the finish

    exotic fruits from the Fiji Islands, noble vanilla from Madagascar, light on the nose and then stronger developing smoke of Cuban tobacco! Refined with a secret herbal mixture from Appenzell, whose recipe even Uwe Ochsenknecht cannot tease out of the obdurate locals.
