Whisky Reviews for Croftengea 1996

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.95 points

  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Actually quite exciting and I find not so extreme as now a Säntis Trinity or a Brimstone, which are the standards for extreme smokers.
    Nothing I would buy, but you can drink (once).
    • Nose
      Very chocolaty, bacon, bittersweet, light smoke, spontaneously I can not understand the negative rating to the extent, but I also like the Brimstone, for example, the essence is smoked bacon and chocolate, but it is not much, yes, too Barbeque Sauce
      After the first sip you can also find this gum in the nose, but not very pentrant there
    • Taste
      oily, smoke, sweet, strong smoke, chocolate, yes, here I can understand the burnt rubber rather, a bit scratchy, raisins, sticky, yes you have to like it
    • Finish
      with smoke, rather short, light sweetness, the rose note comes more clearly against the rest

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Liquid barbecue sauce, incl. Burnt pork belly.
    • Nose
      Barbecue Sauce. Tacky sweet, smoke, bacon, burnt gum, slightly artificial, slightly sour, steak with brown sauce. Very idiosyncratic.
    • Taste
      a lot of smoke, bitter, some plastic, something sweet.
    • Finish
      long with smoke and a sticky sherry sweetness, quite tart notes, cigar smoke.

  3. Sjors scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Earthy, charcoal, smoke, some dark fruits an chocolate .
    • Taste
      Bitter dry, peaty, earthy and smoky, fruits, dark chocolate and spices in the background, and an unpleasant sourness comes through.
    • Finish
      Long peaty and spicy .

  4. Superted scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

      sweet ashtray fat
