Whisky Reviews for Secret Speyside 1994 WD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.65 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    More on the spicy and woody than the fruity side of sherry maturations. Might as well be a Glenrothes.
    Looks like the sister barrel from Secret Speyside 1994 Sb (182398) to me.

      Sauna wood, fir and spruce needles, rosemary, marjoram, rooibos tea, liquorice, meat broth, cigarette tobacco, apricots and apricots in honey, wood polish and beeswax or carnauba wax (definitely the highlight for me). Herbal, spicy, leathery and age-appropriate dusty with a lot of dry refill wood. Very clean, zero sulfur.

      Nice and full mouthfeel, slightly oily, with a lot of honey, resin and wood spice. It tingles a bit, but otherwise very mild for 52 percent. With the addition of water, it becomes even tart, I cannot recommend it. Already safe to drink (I can easily get the 10 cl sample empty), but given the age, I would have liked more substance and complexity. Oh yes: no trace of fruit.

      Relatively quickly gone, very slightly bitter (men's chocolate) and still very herbal / spicy. Slightly cardboard. Looks like anything here, almost like a blend.

    Medium color.
    Scent: butterscotch, slightly musty, maggi, in the background light cardboard, somewhat reserved.
    Taste: tastes sticky sweet (probably a PX barrel), alcohol is not well integrated, not tasty at all, cardboard, penetrating sweetness, disappointing overall.
