Whisky reviews for Scotch Cattles Malcolm MoS

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.00 points.

  1. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Pretty dry smoke on the nose. Algae, mussels, campfires on the North Sea.
    Very subtle hint of fruit, pear. White and yellow gummy bears. But very smoky.
    5 drops of water and it opens nicely, the smoke comes a little in the second row. Maritime, slightly red apple, lemon zest.

    Mouth:
    Not too watery, even with water. Here a little rough, slightly charred bacon, almost a little iodine.
    Rather enigmatically a bit of pear, peach.

    Finish:
    Medium length, remains ashy in the mouth.

    86/100

    Conclusion:
    In the nose an unusual Caol Ila, in the mouth I would have guessed a Laphroaig CS, without any clues.
    But in the end it doesn't matter. A very nice Islay Malt. If you don't let NAS put you off, you'll get a beautifully matured, maybe a bit impetuous whisky, which in my opinion justifies the surcharge compared to other NAS undisclosed Islays.
    For the bid bang for your buck
