15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.36 points
- not particularly complex but easy to drink. The sherry version is better than this
a lot of smoke, sweet, a little vanilla, a bit spicy, not really complex, slightly malty
smoky sweet with vanilla, becoming hot, malty, oily, very slightly nutty
sweet, caramel and nuts, light smoke, medium length
- 83. To drink a pipe or a cigar for lovers of smoke.
Nose: slightly fuzzy, flowers, wax, bonfire smoke
Taste: bluff, light tempo again, burnt matches, salty
Finish: not very long, ashes, varnish
- peaty, smoky, some malty tones, a bit grassy, some citrus, some sweets, hints of vanilla, hints of fruits, but overall not too complex, not well balanced. finish is too short for a peat's beast.
- This felt a bit muted on the nose and then one-dimensional on the palate. This is similar to the gripe I had about Compass Box’s Peat Monster, this is not much of a beast. That said it is on the affordable end of the scale for a cask strength whisky, but there’s not much in it to do that justice.
Reviewed in my blog:
Ashy peat with a sweet malt note. Vanilla cream. Honey. Wood smoke. Juicy red fruits. White pepper. Iodine. Hard apple cider. Burlap. Tarred thatch.
Quite sharp. Hemp rope. Burlap. Ash. Bitter wood. Light pepper. Ripe Banana. Tinned pears. Heavy cream. Sour apple flavouring.
Medium. Bitter. Wood smoke. Salt. Sour porridge. Slight hint of cardamom.
- The tasting with the addition of water I have then given me ... Sorry, guys, that was disgusting! I've never had anything so nasty in the glass! First I had to rinse my mouth with cola and brush my teeth ...
Moldy wood floats in brine, a not too strong stream of smoke blows over fermenting (fermented?) Grain. Fragrance is defined differently ...
Slightly oily in the mouth, smoke & small salty accents. A few barley notes stand next to a very light vanilla creaminess. But yummy is different ...
Again, the foul wood, a few flattened Minikiwi, a hint of vanilla. The gammelige wood goes and comes back then .... Bah, hell devil ...
- For the price, the whisky is actually quite okay. You certainly can not expect the full flavors and complexity. The whisky is in the same category of quality as other NAS smokers (eg Big Peat, Smokehead ...), but is not quite as Islay-style ...
In summary, I would describe the taste as "smoke meets citrus". The smoke is rather cold, as well as extinct campfire. The right barbecue. But meat notes are not found.
The over 50% vol tingles the whisky a bit on the tongue, but you can taste it without water quite.
According to a well-known German taster, it might be a JURA. This is because Paterson has given flavor descriptions on the bottle. Said Paterson owns Dalmore and Jura. Dalmore does not produce smoky whisky ...
