5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.13 points

  1. Don Cassi scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    The nose starts out sweet and fruity with pears, unfortunately also a bit alcoholic. There is a slight note of dust over everything. With the addition of water, a little vanilla fights its way into the foreground and it becomes a little sweeter. Overall, however, much weaker than previous SU bottlings.

    The alcohol tingles intensely in the mouth, and sweet and spicy notes and light grapes and banana spread out.

    The finish is overlaid with a violent oak bitterness that kills the light fruit notes in the background.
    Length: 4/10

    Overall, one of the weaker SU bottlings: too young and yet too much oak flavor for the fragile, fruity distillery character. Probably a Balblair.

    Grade: 2-

    Enjoyment Booster Tasting - Scotch Universe - 2021/4
    Pluto I (Balblair), 10y, Amotillado Sherry Hogshead (250l), 56.4%

    Color: yellow gold
    Nose: vanilla, honey, malt, some ripe banana, little wood
    Body: medium
    Mouth: some alcohol, malt, pastries, slightly nutty and again some banana, dry wood
    Finish: medium, a bit scratchy, dry wood notes and a dash of banana bread
    Conclusion: 85P, particularly exciting are the light banana notes that can be found in the nose and mouth, plus the nutty notes from the Amontillado Sherry Cask.
