Whisky Reviews for Ninety 20-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.64 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    As far as I know maturation for twenty years is not very common for Canadian Whiskey. However, it doesn't make this whiskey more complex in my view. Still an enjoyable 'sipping' whiskey for the summer.
    • Nose
      A sort of 'rye dustiness' of pencil shavings and gentle spices of cloves and nutmeg. Quite grassy as well. Some floral notes of freesias and lilac. Camomile tea. Later on hints of pine.
    • Taste
      Quite creamy. Lots of cherry glace and barley sugar. Toffee sweetness. Cedar wood intermingled with vanilla and honey. Followed by a slightly earthy mustiness. Even strawberries at the background.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Milk chocolate. A little menthol at the end.

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Still has canadian whiskey caramel flavoring, dusty sweet palate with little pepper and oak, pretty simple and uninspiring for a 20yr

    20 years old canadian rye whiskey?! Wow!
    It's rare, not too complex but a lightweight,
    unique piece.
    • Nose
      Oily and creamy texture.
      Rye, spices, pine resin.
    • Taste
      Creamy, oily and spicy.
      Caramelized cherry, honey and ginger.
      Earthy forest fruits.
    • Finish
      Not too long, sweet with some fresh mint

    The nose and initial taste were not the best but it most definitely did improve from then on.

    I could not drink a lot of this stuff but found it entertaining, definitely different.
