Whisky Reviews for Westport 2006 ANHA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.71 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Yes, the finish is not a smooth ride but the overall nose and delivery are quite consistent. If you like your sherried whiskies on the sweeter side this is recommended.
    • Nose
      84 84
      sweet succulent sherry; not hard and oppressive but creamy and a touch fruity, but the fruit of dry fruits with caramel. There is a very slight vinegar note but not offputting, more a slight contrast
    • Taste
      81 81
      tangy and a bit sharp; the sweetness disappears and there is a more steely dryness and acidity
    • Finish
      81 81
      medium+; somewhat rough and leathery with acidic tannins but it is not that unbalancing; only a slight bitterness

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A strange encounter, going from very sweet to quite dry and bitter. Furthermore, the caramel/toffee dominance is not so much to my liking. 
    • Nose
      Orange, caramel toffee, beeswax, dried fruits (apricots, prunes even dried pineapple!) and honey.
    • Taste
      Hot, waxy very sweet, with burnt caramel, lots of honey-glazed fruits, barley and chilies.
    • Finish
      Short and drying, in which the burnt caramel still dominates, and is accompanied by ginger, gentian and green herbs.

  4. st7 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Westport is often described as Glenmorangie with a teaspoon of Glen Moray.
    But most likely…just pure Glenmorangie!
