Expert Senior AdelphosHume Tasting note

AdelphosHume gave this whisky 81 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Tangerines, malt and mixed cereal grains, dried fruits (especially pineapple), and vanilla. 

Taste

Mixed cereal grains, black licorice candies, oak tannins and dried fruits, and a bit of citrus oil.

Finish

Savory herbs (sage), mellow oak tannins, and licorice pastels. 

Comments

Not bad. The mouth-feel was a little watery, but everything else about it was enjoyable. I would definitely buy another bottle in the future.

hs305 gave this whisky 50 points

[November, 2014]  I had this dram during a "world whiskies" tasting at Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 50.  My notes state an extreme bitterness due to heavy tannins with almost no other aromas or flavours to detect.  I was not abe to swallow it and used the spittoon.

There is no accounting for taste...

Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Note
08 Mar 2017 9:41 pm

Trio étonnant de pommes, solvant et reines claudes moisies dans le premier nez ! Plus tard, cela se "normalise" un peu pour évoquer le loukoum. En bouche, toucher agréable avec des bananes écrasées et des fruits trop mûrs. Assez fondu et pâtissier également. Atypique. Finale plutôt courte et peu intense mais agréable. Arrière-goût étrange. C'est vraiment un whisky qui ne ressemble à rien de connu. Je vous le recommande rien que pour l'expérience. J'ai moi-même oscillé sans arrêt entre sourire et grimace !

Enthousiasme 3/5

Color
Old gold
Nose

Kirsche, malzig süß, Zitrusfrucht, Walnuss, Mirabelle, Kartoffelbrei, Mandel, leicht salzig

Taste

Malzig süß, Vanille, Kartoffelbrei, eine leichte Gerstlernote, Apfel, pfeffrig, Nelke, ein Anflug von Rauch,

Finish

Recht kurz, leicht bitter und mit Gerstlernote

Comments

Blind habe ich ihn für einen 8 Jahre altn Whisky gehalten. Ok, die subtraktive Reifung hat wunderbar funktioniert, aber vom Fass war wenig bis gar nichts zu spüren. So wenig Eichengeschmack hatte ich bei einem Malt selten.

Obey your Master
