  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Vanilla and honey rather generous, joined by coffee and spices. Then a rather strange note, rather maritime, comes scramble a little panorama so clear. In the mouth, well balanced between wood, sweetness and especially spices, the final lack of fullness with too much bitterness.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  5. checkpointuk scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=203 Color: straw yellow
    Nose: Smoked lemon, oranges, sweet peat, oily-creamy, light green with leather, vanilla, avocados, rhubarb cream and honey.
    Taste: Spicy and salty and at the beginning a lot of lemon and grapefruit. Then comes dull leather, cardboard and dry wood. Overall, very smoky and peppered with plenty of pepper and a consistently creamy mouthfeel.
    Finish: Medium long - with the same notes as before. Dry peat and smoke, cold ashes, leather and fainting with delicate wood.
    91 points (nose: 91 / taste: 91 / finish: 90)

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    Blind tasting of a sample in the Blind Tasting Competition. I guessed the distillery right as it's the only malt I know which can smell so abundantly of cheese. Except Frysk Hynder perhaps.
    • Nose
      This is dirty. The first thing I smell is cheese, which I associatie with Jura. Smith's Chipitos, or even Hamka's (cheese + ham). Cardboard and a little peanut. Later maltiness. With water orange, citrus, vanilla sugar and even a little honey.
    • Taste
      Again cheese. Pepper and almond. With water orange, peanut butter, peat smoke and a beer-like hoppy touch. The cheese then also becomes less prominent, which is an improvement.
    • Finish
      Cheese, almond, pepper and smoke.

    Not very good except for the nose. Reminded me of the jura 16yo I once had. I gave that bottle away. I guess the profile doesn't suit me.

    Tasted at day 13 of the Usquebaugh Society blind tasting competition 2015.

    My guess was a Glenkinchie, 10yo at 46%.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, honey sweetness, something metallic, dark coffee beans, some red fruits,malty
    • Taste
      Overripe red fruit, honey, dark chocolate, spices, malt, oak
    • Finish
      Very malty, sweet, slightly drying, some overripe red fruit lingers, slightly bitter

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    What a complex dram! Even a bit better than the TWA,
    although not much. The Swedes should be so lucky. No more laughing at Jura,
    kids.
    • Nose
      Fruity nose with all kinds of berries and citrus
      fruit, upholstered with hazelnuts. Great farmy side. And, just as with the TWA,
      a bit of menthol. Sweetened farmer butter, becoming louder all the time. Leave
      it for five more minutes and it even becomes a bit tropical. Peach, indeed.
      Grand nose.
    • Taste
      It is oily and spice (think licquorice, nutmeg and
      white pepper), with loads of orange zest. Quite some mint and peat, now,
      working wonders. White chocolat, filled with caramel. Midpalate it turns
      maritime with some salt and even seaweeds.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, spicy and offers the final say to
      grapefruit.
