Whisky Reviews for The Relaxed Malt 2001 BI

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. etwa77 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    according to my tastebuds only, may contain a discernible amount of Macallen.. some Ben Nevis might also play in the mix.. funny how the bottler tries to intrude upon the experience by already suggesting a desired effect (relaxation)… whisky tasting , like hallucinogens, lends itself to a great deal of impressionability..

    yes, it is quite relaxed, in the sense that it does not ask for much effort from the drinker.. a propensity for sherry, an uncomplicated sweet tooth and forgiveness for an unremarkable, ending.

    me, i was relaxed from the get go.

    Feels a bit fleshy like a ben nevis. Furthermore, leather, sherry, nutmeg. Nice dram! Lots of pepper also with a dry finish. A bit short.

  3. Cubey666 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    When I collected my bottle at the guys at Passie voor Whisky, they were kind enough to offer me a glass to taste as well.

    from what i remember:
    • Nose
      88 88
      chocolate, nuts, coffee tones, some red fruits, hint of leather, clearly a relaxed sherry cask
    • Taste
      87 87
      More chocolate, dark bit bitter, some cookies, nuts, red fruits and well developed in the alcohol
    • Finish
      87 87
      dark chocolate, rather long, bit dry and nutty in the end.
