  1. Maltbehr64 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Whiskyfun: Colour: white wine. Nose: we’re extremely close to the cereal, very ‘organic’, with a lot of porridgy notes, muesli, ginger, grass, branches, leaven, farmhouse loaf... And on top of all that, notes of rye whisky and Dutch genever. The farmiest nose one can find, I’d say (but its very clean). Mouth: love it. Really. First, because it’s different, and second, because it’s extremely good, wandering in other territories such as high-end mescal and tequila. Indeed, it does taste a bit of agave! Very full, very ‘neat’, perfectly chiselled, with sweet spices aplenty including caraway seeds and juniper berries. Excellent mouth feel. Finish: long, vegetal, very ‘precise’. Comments: I guess it makes a lot of sense to stay close to the cereal when you’re distilling such a rare variety. It is a huge surprise and, in my opinion, anything but a ‘vanity bottling’ or a marketing stunt. I’ll even add two or three points because of the craziness of this bottling (imagine bere gives you a yield that’s less than the half of that of classic barley!) And I’ll certainly buy some bottle(s). SGP:372 - 90 points. http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivedecember12-2.html#161212

    This was Serge's best Bere (he scored 90 points - some for bravery partly because of the bad yield of this barley). And I can almost follow suit. To say it with Monty Python: "now for something completly different". Lucious in its own right and certainly a big kudos to the Big Man (no, not Clarence Clemmons) Jim McEwan. Would I have loved to hear Clarence's solo after tasting this dram... yes, and: Jungleland has to suffice... - damn this LP was recorded in 1975...

  6. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful golden dram which reminds you of summer and barley. You can smell fresh ripe fruits like apples and a hint of vanilla while you walk through a forest. This dram is sugary sweet and tastes like fresh fruits, malty, spicy, peppery, with a gentle oaky dry finish.
