  1. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad whisky at all but no high roller either. Received a 3cl sample from a friend, gratefull but will not buy myself a bottle when available.

      At first 82 but after a drop of water it opened up more and nice typical bourban cask maturation tones came up so 84 it became in the end.
    • Taste
      82 82
      OK, nothing more and nothing less.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long finish, spicy, hot. Not bad but no high roller either.

    There is certainly quality in this whisky: great texture, long finish, and no off-elements. What it is lacking is a bit of surprise and dazzle.

    (Review of a bottle I purchased myself)
    • Nose
      84 84
      Cake icing, soft vanilla and pear, undergirded by subtle earthiness (bright-green olives and dunnage warehouse). With water there's a little more minerality and citrus (grapefruit).
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, with excellent texture. The alcohol is a bit nippy here, so a dollop of water is in order. The flavour is malty and clean, but does not offer very distinct flavour associations to me.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A long savoury-sweet and slightly drying finish that invites the next sip.
