Whisky Reviews for Secret Speyside Distillery 1994 WN

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The discrepancy between the nose/initial taste and what follows is rather large
    • Nose
      Sweet, fresh and fruity, this Speyside single malt is rather honeyed with touches of beeswax, burlap, ozone and an assortment of stone fruits, such as nectarines and peach. A touch of sugared breakfast cereals, but the sweetness is balanced by some vibrant lemon zest.
    • Taste
      Extremely fruity and quite waxy, it's remarkable how much this initially reminds me of some of those undisclosed 1973 Speysiders. Honey but also more citrus (grapefruit) and stone fruits. More spicy. However, it quickly becomes apparent this is not of the same high quality. There's a leafy bitterness here and it doesn't match the depth and richness of those modern classics.
    • Finish
      Tannic, spicy and short to medium in length.
