  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Adnams No 2 Triple Grain 43%. Yellow with green hue. Aroma has lots of marker pen, some solvent, maybe some higher alcohols, but gives a fruity impression. Taste is punchy, young grain whisky in a good way, suggestions of corn and sweetness, reminds me of Balcones. Hard-edged spirit. Pretty well put together actually and quite fun, punchy big flavour but still it's not massively my thing. People who like novelty spirits such as Balcones should also enjoy this - this is better in my opinion. (3.0/72)

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Very accessible and easy on the nose with sweet raisins, toffee and soft barley. Like many young grains its got more than a hint of its distillate roots. but this one is well tempered, which isn’t surprising given its expected market: discuss….., and its not far away from Berry’s Guyana rum bbr either. Very pleasant nose like a sweet vanilla/ginger sponge cake with a touch of lemon icing and violets wafted on top.
    T: Is it simply the power of suggestion or is that truly a beer infused maltiness. Either way, its spirit/grain led, mainly malt and a tad rough [spiceness], and develops - nowhere. Although initially malty sweet its light, bitter/sour spirit that resides.
    F: Not much here either. More of the same with light waxy vanillas. Coming back to the dregs in the glass, there are lots of toasted, herbal, botanical notes.
    C: Its understandable this would be compared to [Beckham’s] Haig, they will both inevitably be competing in similar ‘in-crowd’ markets. This is way ok for a 3yo grain, you can’t really expect much - but this does have character, a beery one and the nose alone promises lots for more mature versions. A curious one.
