  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting. Sorry, not my cup of tea.

    However I did like his brother  #800031 from Blackadder.
    • Nose
      Sweaty, corn, malty, vanilla and bitter. Oily, rubber and cheap leather! Pine wood, popcorn, nuts and citrus.
    • Taste
      Rubber, oily, pine raisin and pepper.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, peat, briny and soapy.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Quite a lot of sulphur. Toffee filled with chocolate. Dark cherry and liquorice. Then baked beef with salt and curry. With water some chocolate milk (perhaps a little over-date) and orange. In other words, quite some pretty uncommon notes in there.
    • Taste
      Very spicy. Pepper, peat, clove, dark chocolate, toffee, apple, cherry, orange, salami and gingerbread. With a few drops of water raspberry comes up.
    • Finish
      Now mainly peat. Dark chocolate, gingerbread, pepper, curry and liquorice.

    There were extraordinary many grains of charcoal near the bottom of the bottle. If Blackadder really does what it states on its labels, then all the other bottles in this bottling will show the same.
