4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 79.32 points.

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A rich, chocolaty single malt with a vast range of dark flavours. Very multi-layered with a balance of dark fruits, coffee notes, walnuts, and a peppery-warming spiciness. An ideal warming dram for the coming cold season. Good for those who were quick enough to get hold of a bottle of this.

    I thank whic (Whiskycircle) for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Sweet and heavy on the nose with dark sherry, dried figs and raisins. Dark chocolate emerges, accompanied by tobacco leaves and walnut notes. There is also a spiciness of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon with a fine herbal note in the background. Very dense aromas.
    • Taste
      Sticky sweetness on the palate with dried fruits, dates and raisins. Then a warming spiciness becomes noticeable with a peppery bite, almost of chili. As soon as this warmth fades, slightly dry notes of dark chocolate, tobacco, coffee and walnut appear. The spiciness increases with the 2nd sip.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a medium length with cocoa, espresso, tobacco leaves and drying notes of walnut and oak.

      With water: After the addition of several drops of water still sweet on the nose with slightly more tobacco aromas and a more distinct herbal note. Less sweetness on the palate, but more dry portions of chocolate, cocoa, nutmeg, oak and tobacco leaves. The finish is still of medium length with walnut, chocolate and tobacco.

    Preliminary information on my award of points:
    I rate my Whisky's Privat on a scale of ten
    ( XX.X of 10.0 )!
    • Nose
      Looks very dark! Intense bitter cocoa aromas, walnut, white pepper, tobacco, subtle oak, coffee grounds, herbs, a hint of wild honey resonates. The flavors are very dense!
      The longer you smell, the denser and more intense the aromas become.

      +Water: The fruit is receding, Tobacco and leather very intense, Light touch of Craigellachie sulfur, Nutmeg, Cooling mint.
    • Taste
      Creamy start - but dries very quickly! Licorice, mocha, chocolate, chili catch, lots of very dark fruits, herbal honey (very sweet).

      +Water: Soft start, full of chilli catch, chocolate becomes more intense, along with slightly bitter notes, spices.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy oak with underlying sweetness, herbs, cocoa, walnut.

      +Water: Unchanged.

    Dont know, why it got so poor reviews. Its not a high class malt. But its very easy drinking, with your typical modern sherry notes.
