Whisky Reviews for Gold Cock 12-year-old
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.16 points
- Solid whisky, interesting because something "different", nothing for the most demanding, but for only 22 € you can put it quite in the price-conscious whisky bar, almost a good "Zechwhisky" and you have an "exotic".
smells clearly of whisky, but also clearly undiscussed, very open, fresh and fruity (quite a light fruit flavors, but not disturbing), hard pear, white grapes, some acidity (dry white wine), something reminiscent of the Penderyn Madeira, slightly creamy in the background , Vanilla, condensed milk
sweet, creamy, vanilla, condensed milk, white chocolate ... something fruit, hard to identify, could be mirabelle ... longer in the mouth: latte, coffee, seasoning, wood
Here the wood beats, spicy, slightly spicy, coffee stays on the tongue for a relatively long time
- For the first time, I tasted it at this year's whisky festival, like a welcome welcome, and I had a good time at that time, because I was surprised by the way she greeted me. I've been waiting for the review because I wanted to buy the whole bottle. Now I've tasted it for about the seventh, most recently in the Ballantink test 12yo and Johnnie Walker Red Label that we had with Dad. The results of the comparison were rather leapy, with Gold Cock 12yo, the last of course Red Label, but I want to test Ballantinku with other rivals, and her review sometime later, after another comparative show. Dad tasted GC12 even more, giving 85 points.
So, Gold Cock, single malt, twelve-year-old, whisky for the beautiful 424, - crowns. I also like the fact that the Vizovits did not stay at the forty percent but gave a more pleasant 43% of the alcohol. What about the money who wanted more? For me a great discovery and surprise, but as I read the opinions of others, so we do not agree very much about her qualities. So at least I would highly recommend it to all beginners, even those who think about buying a whisky and have deeper into their pockets. If they belonged to the group they did not like so much, they did not do so much. Yes, try this, for me it is a much better investment than Balvenie 12 yo Doublewood, which is more than twice more expensive and I would not recommend anyone to anyone, let alone beginners.
I will add that I have my home version of 21st September 2011, I do not know how much different performance can differ.
Honey-like malt, with heavy over-ripe fruit, gingerbread, occasionally sheds some winds (mint). (84 b)
She also did not taste honey, honey, malt, ripe to mature fruit, spicy peppermint, and then a light veil of plum brandy. Pleasantly sweet. (84 b)
Light, peat, fruity (plums), vanilla, flat
Sweet peat, vanilla, fruity (plums)
Short, fruity, sweet
- Although - due to the incense - may have matured in a church crypt, it would not be too much sacrilege if this drop were processed in a fine mixed drink. And I do not want to go to court too hard with this Czech exotics!
sourish malt, granulated sugar on icy glass, vanilla in the background, fruit brandy
Perfume, pomegranate, red berries
Plum brandy, vanilla, frankincense
