    Characterful waxy profile, orange notes. Strong, aromatic, citrus, oak, tart wood notes in the mouth. These draw into the finish, which shows chestnut honey, citrus and bitter oak notes. Very nice whisky.

    (Anyway I prefer Metallica)
    Enthusiasm: Nose 2/5 Mouth 3/5 Final 3/5 Whisky n ° 1681
    • Nose
      Maritime malt, waxy. A little flat but with sweet cherry chelou.
    • Taste
      Fade, "machous", thick, syrupy. Sweet but "hollow". Fragrant spices.
    • Finish
      Residual spices. Pretty long and caressing. Liquorous, sticky limit.

  5. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Holy nuggets, this is next level gear. Sweet and smokey, rich and very drinkable.
    • Nose
      The nose...well it's kind of epic (much like the label). Super oily, rich maritime and strangely cut hay. Sweet grass and citrus and petrol. I'm almost lost on this.
    • Taste
      The palate shows off a different beats. Monstrous peat and big malt, smoke... Aggressively so. Huge body, more preserved lemon and tea leaf tannins. Over ripe fruit and hints of cocktail bitters.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length. Surprisingly smokey, intense and rich, loads of parked malt, polish and hints of coffee bitters.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Uncomplicated, but powerful and dense, the barrel, apparently a weak bourbon, had little effect for 22 years, but overall it's nice.
    • Nose
      Open, sharp, dry wood, vegetable notes, a little rot, window putty, pre-foliage, grain tones, cooled porridge, thinner.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet-malty, oak, moonshine, peppery wave, simple, but very rich.
    • Finish
      Warming, grainy, candied orange, syrup, a bit of bitter herb, generally more sweet, a little grapefruit.

    Interesting. Because very complex. You have to deal with that ....
    • Nose
      The colleague starts for me, with a clear, salty leather note. A sweetish, slightly phenolic smoky note appears. Trail mix with honey. Vanilla, caramel, chocolaty. Reminds me somehow, of a freshly bitten Snickers. Cooked bright fruits. A subtle fragrance note, comes from the background. With a little more time in the glass come garden herbs and spices. He's kind of oily, harsh.
    • Taste
      Pleasant, spicy start. The one who develops his power the farther he comes back. Salty, juicy apricot. Some bitter nut flavors. Clear marzipan. And always this slight smoke, which is above all. Cold espresso. Sweet notes spread, but are soon replaced by the spicy oak. The longer the colleague stays in the mouth, the more tart fruit notes are noticeable.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Slightly sour orange and slightly bitter. But gets oily and sweet. At the end there is a note of Haribo licorice.

  8. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose of yellow fruits, honey and figs. Nice harmonious mouth on mirabelle plums, iodine, honey and wax. Short final unfortunately, a bit metallic. This final is disappointing but it is a good whisky that is reminiscent of Clynelish.

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The final lacks a little punch but the rest is very nice.
    A good Glen Scotia
    • Nose
      A lot of fresh fruit (peach, cherry plum), a little wax, paraffin, a side clynelish
    • Taste
      Rather greedy and balanced in sugar, with a beautiful fruity (yellow fruits), traces of vanilla and dried herbs, a little wax.
      A little side "old style" that reminds me of a 1988 VW Balmenach
    • Finish
      Average length, on honey, heather, yellow fruits

    The
    club tasting @ The friends of the Quaich had this whisky in their lineup. It
    surprised me with the nose of chocolate, fig and marzipan.

    Then
    the taste, I simply loved it. It was my number 2 of the tasting, and the
    tasting’s nr. 3 with 43 points.

    The whisky loving metal fan, what a niche to target! Being part of this target group, I felt obliged to at least try this one. Although these prices are becoming a kind of 'selling them whisky and taking their gold', I do actually like this one quite a lot.
    • Nose
      Cherry chocolates, toffee, apricot, marzipan, hazelnut, orange, fig, berry liquor (Ginjinha), limestone, curry, vanilla and some smoke. With water some grapefruit. Seems like a wine finish.
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate with marzipan. Cherry, minerals, whole wheat bread, grapefruit, toffee, spices (curry), orange liquor (Grand Marnier), roasted almond, peanut, smoke and a little wax. A bit of sulphur as well. With water more orange. Rum? Interesting dram!
    • Finish
      Cocoa, nutmeg, curry, cinnamon, toffee, cherry, peat ash and hazelnut. Again a whiff that seems like rum.

  13. Falnor scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Hail to Iron Maiden!! With populair whisky like the Arran Devil's punch bowl and Bowmore Devil's cask, we've got ourselves nicely themed designs. However, it still needs to taste great...

    Strange rather peculiar whisky. Very oily and whiffs of glue. Also waxy and mineral. Not all that fruity, but it's uterly intriguing. A smoky side that's more into coal and burned paper.

    After nosing, I taste some apple and vanilla. More herbal with anise, mint and dried leaves. Again oily feeling with some smoke on the backgroud. The whisky is sweat, spicy and also bitter.

  14. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    My impression in festival was verified in the regressing in peace. An atypical dram, unconventional and uncommon. It's nice to meet an amazing whisky, especially when it's good! A multi-faceted and playful whisky (as its label).

    90/100 . 89 for its overall quality and complexity, the 90th point for its exceptional profile and its playful side.
    • Nose
      From the outset I knew that I was dealing with a dram that is off the beaten path, as the nose is far from standards that I have already met. It is quite difficult to define and describe, by the way. But hey, I'm starting. The minerality (slate, ash smoke), undergrowth (dried fern and heather), and also a lot of sweet fruit (apple and pear). A sweetness of vanilla caramelized. A lot of things, and it smells good without attacking.
    • Taste
      Not aggressive either. Rather sweet, even. I suspect a refill sherry, although the official info on the type of keg is not known. Pear peel, exotic spices, vanilla and caramel. Waves of pear liquor at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Pretty short. An explosion of spices, and a slight bitterness and drought apricot. The ash smoke resurfaces.
