  1. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This *REALLY* surprised me. Heavy, substantial, warming, but most of all, despite the strength, eminently drinkable, not at all boozy or "alcoholic", and well-matured.

    Caramel, vanilla, sweet almond paste, charred casks, some sherry influence (?). A nice kick mid-palate with cracked black pepper that extends into the finish, before getting drowned out by the sweetness again.

    I wager this has a pretty high malt whisky content; the Glenrothes components for one are hard to miss.

    Even in the finish, there's no distinct grainy or bitter note. Amazing value for money!

  2. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 70 points Member Senior

    No, it's more like mixing cocktails. I'll try to describe it as "flowery": The whiskey tastes like fresh new make that has been bubbled through a fresh ex-bourbon barrel once it was pressurized. Dominant youth, weirdly overlying vanilla and sweetness. The only plus point is that the 50% vol are barely noticeable. But that was it. "Not for me, thank you".

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Delicious, strong, tasty, sympathetic, the 50% do it well, bring neat strength and do not burn. I like it a lot, for 25 € a clear buy recommendation.
    • Nose
      first creamy-caramel, toffee, then malt, spicy grain, biscuit, also goes towards farm, warm hay, stable, strong, robust, but the 50% bite a bit
    • Taste
      very full-bodied, chocolate, toffee ... there is also a slight impact of sugar beet syrup / plum jam, Storck giants ... first quite round and creamy, with a longer time in the mouth it becomes "dirty", more natural, peppery
    • Finish
      long, warm, chocolate biscuits to sugar beet syrup, pepper, a hint of licorice

    on the nose, it's very good. Feels like an old spirit, I doubt if there are some very old spirit was used in this blend.

    the palate is quite young.

    finish isn't long.

    But I like the scent. For this price, the scent is sublime.

    1432) Cutty Sark, Prohibition Edition

    Day 41 of Lockdown - 27th April - Happy Birthday, my girl.

    N- Been wanting to try this, not a lot of blended are bottled at this strength. Obvious musky wood with sour tinge, then toffee kissing the earth, buttery and mineral-y, rather stiff initially with puffy leather filling up the sphere gradually, like in the 'genuine leather' shops. Sugar crisps and cooked barley developed well. (86/20)

    P- Pours of sourish dates juice, coffee extract, herb-y and orange peels. Darkly sweet and masculine spiciness that may be a wee hard to please. Quite a lot of sherry comes thru. (84/18)

    F- Medium long, spicy green tobacco, prickly mouthfeel and spiky. Heavy dollops of oak smokes leaving traces of woody herbaceous, tad oily. (85/19)

    B/B- 86/20 Credit to the body and balanced. But Wood+Oily+Herbaceous just not my thing.

    Weighted Rate- 77pt

    Bottle is now empty. Confirm my 85 pts.
    Especially with a few drops of water, it becomes nice and round and easy to drink. Sure, you can't always discover something new here, but what he should do: D
    Black pepper on toffee? Yes indeed.
