Whisky Reviews for Waldviertler Whisky J.H. Special

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 44.00 points

  1. Eun1 scored this whisky 55 points Expert Senior

    In the nose a light smoke over a barely perceptible hint of vanilla. On the tongue he presents himself young, metallic and alcoholic; a slight sweetness comes through; The whole thing is not unpleasant, but not really good either. There is a slight alcoholic burning back; all taste sensations fade very fast.

    OK, this is on the borderline of being enjoyable. I guess I rated it that high as it was a fun experiment to try. I would not buy it though. It seems way too young and unbalanced. 
    • Nose
      This is odd. Machine grease; grass. Then some sweetness comes through but not the usual type that one finds in Scotch malts. 

      Water+time = a bit more sweetness
    • Taste
      Grape rakia. Honestly, if I were to taste it blind I would swear this is a grape distillate. Sweet; new make. After the first rakia flavours some malty notes come and then the grassy side takes over the palate. 

      Water + time = thin, very drying, not nice to drink anymore.

    this is actually referring to a 350ml bottle.
