3 Notes

Andytka3
Connoisseur Andytka3 Review note
19 Dec 2016 4:30 am
Andytka3 gave this whisky 85 points

Nose:- Smoked cured ham, brine and lightly pungent. Fiery burnt caramel and rich in aroma. Harsh in a way but correspond well with the packaging.

Palate:- Creamy and aggressive wood bites, sawdust and peppery spicy. Vanilla sweet and strong sour fruits, lemon. Firm body and a kick on the palate. Worth trying when in the mood for a rough and kicking dram.

Finish:- Long, tongue heating spicy. Bold and masculine. Excellent for Whisky Sour.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Specialist KayMeertens Tasting note
21 Jul 2016 10:57 pm
KayMeertens gave this whisky 82 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

Baking courgette in a gas-fired casserole. Caramel, caster sugar and raspberry. Then suddenly hazelnuts in milk chocolate.

Taste

Caramel, raspberry, hazelnut paste (first time I've mentioned this apart from a sherry-matured single malt I suppose), Turkish delight and ehhhhh.... malt? Definitely some of the original raw material in there, whatever grain it may be.

Finish

Aniseed, sweet corn, caramel and hazelnut.

Comments

For $20 this is definitely decent quality.

Expert Senior DrinkingWhisky Tasting note

DrinkingWhisky gave this whisky 86 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Brown sugar, hint of tobacco and/or leather. 

Taste

Satin silkiness (if that even exists ;-)), tobacco, anise, citrus - all nicely balanced. Tutti frutti dried red fruit. Very nice! 

Finish

Lingering, with anise coming to the fore. 

Comments

A lot better than WB#28718 (also a Fighting Cock 6yo 103 Proof, but it must be a different batch). This one is smoother, more rounded. Bang for your buck! Tasted 05/05/2016 in a bourbon line-up.
