    Enthusiasm 2/5 Whisky n ° 1247
    • Nose
      Lively and sweet. Beautiful ripe fruits that go away too fast. Green malt. Dust of wood. Fresh and vanilla. More austere thereafter. And back to something more gourmet with chocolate. Funny mix, confusing because changing constantly. But something is happening at least, that's already it.
    • Taste
      Fruits marked but also ALCOHOL! Aggressive as possible! With a little water, it becomes drinkable, but still rough, lacking in precision on the aromas detected on the nose.
    • Finish
      Not very striking.

  3. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Interesting is the least you could say of this youngster. It tells you its story very slowly. True to his name, Bere Barley serves you mostly cereal aromas.

    Definitely worth looking out for. An interesting dram for those on a budget. Less than € 50. But he's getting rare these days (only 7650 bottles available on Planet Earth). Update: Bruichladdich launched a 2nd edition in 2013.
    • Nose
      A lot of of cereal and some citrus. Very clean and crisp and a little shy. But hey, who wasn't shy as a five-year old toddler. Let it breathe for a while.
      Water serves you some muesli with dried fruits (bananas and coconut) and a baked apple with brown sugar
    • Taste
      The primary ingredient – barley – is the center of all things. Porridge with vanilla. Water sweetens the whisky. Kellogg's Frosties with golden syrup. Again some fresh citric notes. I'm thinking more of grapefruit in stead of limes. The bitterness of the grapes evolve in a soft oak flavour.
    • Finish
      Quite short, dry and crisp. A summer's appetizer.
