  1. Vacuum scored this whisky 69 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Honey-sweet, barely noticeable alcohol, light cream cheese, a hint of parsley root, dried yeast, a hint of pickling.

    Mouth: Sweet start, then the xylitol spirit again, then a note comes out that is reminiscent of gauze that has been sucked out, a kind of disinfectant with added yeast, a little bit of bizzel and zack, it's gone.

    Tail: There it is again, the soaked sawdust. What's left is an astringent furry tongue, brrr...

    If these are the Indian Pale Ale Casks, then I don't even want to try the ale that goes with them.

    Well, that's something different! Malty, slightly bitter beer notes. Enough complexity, but the youthness is still felt. Sharp for the low ABV. All in all, an interesting whisky to try.

    Unfortunately, this whisky turned out to be a big mistake for me.
    I once took part in a Glenfiddich tasting, in which it was, among others, Experiment IPA, but in the Cask Strenght version, not available for sale. That position was a real miracle, even poetry. I was convinced that due to the lower voltage it might be weaker, but not that much!
    Nothing here, nothing going on in this whisky. Weak fruity and hoppy accents, through which the alcoholic note is too strong and dominates the whole. And what's even worse, there is a burning bitterness in the esophagus.
    Waste of money.

    • Taste

  10. Glenfarclaus scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    Price-performance top! I find that with the "beer" hop taste very subtle. Even tastes a little better to me than its brother the "project x"
    I would buy again and again!

  13. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    vanilla, hops, yeast (that of the waffle dough!), woody, a little grassy
    mouth:
    it sparkles, strange, like rising yeast, undifferentiated fruits, vanilla, wood, a little shell
    final:
    simple, fresh, malty, a little toasted, good for summer dram.

  14. SimondeVette scored this whisky 71 points Expert Junior

    Not very special, but smooth enough to enjoy
    • Nose
      Citrus, pear, a bit of toffee, oak, vanilla
    • Taste
      Walnuts, pear, vanille, a bit toffee
    • Finish
      Soft and sweet - very soft - and a bit of oak
