Whisky Reviews for Black Friday 22-year-old ElD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.14 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very different from previous years but another winner.
    • Nose
      A touch of menthol (and even some iodine?) at first, but then gentle notes of a smouldering bonfire with baked peaches and caramel-glazed red apples. Somewhat waxy, a whiff of furniture polish and a good amount of sweet oranges. A hint of sage and thyme as well.
    • Taste
      Mouthcoating and a tad dry. Notes of charcoal, wood smoke and some ashes, but also a touch of pralines, triple sec and cinnamon. Some gentle vanilla custard in the background, as well as damp oak and some papaya. Finally some grassy notes.
    • Finish
      Soft oak spices, gentle wood smoke. Very elegant.

    Too dry for my liking, a strange smoke, almost like burnt plastic.
