Whisky reviews for Croftengea 2007 DMC

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 88.14 points.

  1. JoshNRW scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is the other half of the cask from the 13 Year Old Croftengea 2007 Part 1, which was an all bourbon cask aging and has an average score of 88.55 (WB183156).
    This is the remaining portion of this cask and this portion has been finished in Tawny Port Octave Cask. It has now been bottled as Part 2 at the age of 14.

    With this charity edition, five euros per bottle again go to the Hardcore Help Foundation.

    The whisky turned out really well and it is particularly positive that the cask was washed out with water before the finish. Therefore the whisky is not dominated by the finish and offers many different aromas.

      Oh, it's nice to feel that the cask hasn't run over the whisky and that some of the character of the predecessor is still there. I like this one so much because it is still so authentic and yet round.

      In addition to the dry, red-sweet, spicy port wine and light red berries in the foreground, the vanilla from the bourbon cask and the smoke from the campfire can be found directly behind it.
      The whisky here is a little less distinctive than its predecessor, but still a whisky with (soft) rough edges.
      When it comes to aromas, I have to think of cranberries, barbecue, copper and a wooden fence on the horse gate.

      Wow, the onset is amazingly soft at first and then slowly builds up sweetly with tamed power, then becomes dry-spicy again and then ends slightly smoky. This is amazingly beautiful interplay and more complexity than I expected. The alcohol is even better integrated here than in the predecessor and with water it becomes even creamier.

      The finish is medium long and lingers in the throat with dry smoke.
