Whisky Reviews for The Last Vatted Malt NAS CB

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.27 points

  1. Akoo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Un peaty sherry au top.
    • Nose
      Puissant, mentholé. Des notes de noisettes et de noix. Un parfum presque envoutant. Des notes d'humus, de sous bois, des notes automnales. En même temps, un côté très frais. Olives, moutarde, épices douces.
    • Taste
      Une bonne dose de tourbe, de sucre, de cannelle, de réglisse, de caramel. Puissant, enivrant. Déclicieux.
    • Finish
      Très intense sur la réglisse et la tourbe

  2. dicembre29 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Gorgeous and rich. So mature. So much balance. So much class. Smoke and smooth natural caramels. Creamy sweetness and mildly spiced white bread dough. Fruit salad in sugar syrup (think canned fruit cocktail). Now some more mature dried fruit notes. This is really an astounding nose. The earthiness of peat has been softened to allow the smoke to show through. Just the slightest bit of the typical Caol Ila briny citric edge. Immaculate.

    Palate: Creamy…caramel-y…smoky…fruity…sexy…sassy. Oh, man…I truly love this whisky. Fruits in melted toffee. The perfect harmony struck here between spice, smoke, wood and cereal. Almost too easy a drinker, even at 53.7%. I could happily curl up with this bottle and a great book until the wee hours.

    Tasted blind. Smoked sherry nose with a farmer classy side. Fruity peat, the middle brings back the farmer side with the power. Beautiful texture and beautiful magnitude. Long and powerful final without being alcoholic. Very good.

  4. numen scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    from a purchased sample
    • Nose
      Interesting! A touch smoky and a subtle almost salty coastal quality.
      There's an underlying sweet malt base. Grassy. If you really work at it,
      you gt a touch of red fruit (berries); the sherry is extremely subdued.
      Honey, toffee, crystallized barley. Pretty obviously dominated by the
      ex-bourbon quality, but more other elements than the other Compass Boxes
      in this line-up.
    • Taste
      Delicious. Creamy with just a bit of lemon soda water. Sugar water,
      thin honey, vanilla, cardamom. Soft wood. Cinnamon. Graphite and a touch
      of ash. Really very light and elegant. Maybe a little sherry in the
      recesses, merged with lightly earthy/peaty notes. Eventually, more red
      fruit, but it's not the strongest. Cherries?
    • Finish
      Ashy, but all the same. There are a host of flavors here. The basic
      malty quality leads the way; it's very good here. The ash/peat and
      sherry balance it and give some balance and complexity. A very good
      effort.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not bad, but nothing comes out of particular either. I find it difficult to peel, and the peat side is too crushed by the sherry layer.
    • Nose
      Very sherry on cooked fruits. A slight smoke and a little dust. Nose nevertheless shy I find.
    • Taste
      Melted on sherry. The smoke is struggling to show itself. Bitterness of pear peel.
    • Finish
      Peppery explosion in the throat and wood on the tongue.

  7. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Oh, crap, another
    blend that scores a 90. We shall not make this a habit. At the same time, the
    Last Vatted Grain was bottled as well, but I have not yet had the fortune to
    try it. This blend can still be found, but will set you back around 200 EUR or
    more.
    • Nose
      Well, the nose is
      very interesting indeed. While the Caol Ila takes care of a coastal jacket with
      a touch of salt and moss, itâ€
    • Taste
      Perfect arrival, spicy
      and peaty with loads of citrus. Caol Ila takes over. Graphite. Hints of ashes,
      earth and sweet peat. Olive oil. Cardemom. Cinnamon. Oak. The whole is wrapped
      in a blanket of red fruit. The second wave contains dark chocolate, orange
      peel, raisins and dades Hint of coconut and chicory.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and dry, making a perfect pas-de-deux between the peat and the sherry.

    Description by SCOMA:

    This limited bottling is a final farewell to the vatted malt. A filling, which was brought out with pride and honor. This whiskey is the result of a marriage of fine old Speyside and Islay whiskeys. At midnight on 22.11.2011 ended the era. Since then, it`s illegal to use malt on the label of the Scotch Malt Whiskys-term vatted, he describes a whiskey which is composed of several single malt whiskeys. Distilleries are: Aberlour (36 years old in 1974) of Speyside and Port Askaig (26 years old in 1984) from the island of Islay.

  9. granella2003 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Minty, buttery and spicy with notes of ice wine, a touch of gentle smoke, a
      little prune juice and some subtle peat.
    • Taste
      Full and sweet with a whack of sherried malt and
      peat smoke, chocolate raisins and berry fruits. A hint of rhubarb crumble and
      wood smoke, with a little linseed and pine resin.
    • Finish
      Peaty, smoky and oily with toffee brittle and
      salty butter.

  10. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A whisky commemorating the end of an era in Whisky history - the
    enactment of the Scotch Whisky Regulations of 2009. After the 22nd of
    November 2011 whiskies can no longer be labelled as Vatted Malts, the
    new term being the (debatably) confusing Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. This
    bottling, a cask strength vatting of 36-year-old Speyside malt and 26-year-old Islay malt, is Compass Box`s tribute. Just 1323 bottles of this were released.
