  3. glen efze did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Brave New Spirits enter the whisky market with illustriously named bottlings. There are the Guerrilla Casks or, like here, the Whiskys of Voodoo. So far, it was mainly a lot of booth magic about normal bottlings. So let's see how much voodoo this Caol Ila does. It's also a marketing thing: There's mysterious whispers about voodoo and rusty cauldrons, but every shop writes that it's Caol Ila. And this is neither voodoo nor rusty, this is bulk Islay whisky, sorry.

    • Nose
      The whisky is not rusty on the nose, but slightly moldy. There's mustiness - but it's not a good cellar mustiness, it's actually moldy cardboard. That's not nice. Add some sweetness and some fruit. I'm guessing the Lafitte Barrique has sulfur and is responsible for the mold association. Or was there actually a green pile on the barrel wall? It smells like that, unfortunately. The aroma doesn't make you want to take the first sip.
    • Taste
      This whisky also has a strange aroma in the taste. has the aspects of furry white horse. This is not The Rusty Cauldron, this is The Moldy Barrel. And that taste doesn't go away, it settles.
    • Finish
      The disgusting mold aspect sticks to the palate. So it could really be mold, because the taste of moldy food stays in your mouth for a long time.

      No, not good. I drank different whiskys today and ate things that tasted normal, so it can't be a matter of taste. This whisky costs €100! Anyone who has ever drunk a Caol Ila from Marco Bonn knows how delicious this whisky can be. But what is that? Voodoo? This is exactly how I imagine a rotten barrel with moldy staves. Sorry, but the rest of the sample will be discarded. This is inedible and not assessable.
