  3. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    So somehow it has such disturbing artificial citrus notes. Pretty fresh. The Four Grain shows a bit more spiciness and is more intense than the Millet. Overall but not my thing.

    For such a young distillery – who obviously only have young stuff to put out there – they certainly have some very nice products. Koval is one to keep an eye one.
    • Nose
      Oh, my! This nose is something else. Very fruity and sweet on banana cake, chocolate, freshly polished leather and toast that has not yet been toasted (you know what I mean, right?). Surprisingly creamy but dry at the same time. A lot of woodsmoke and even some ashes. How lovely.
    • Taste
      I would have loved a little more body, but taste-wise this is quite something. Gingerbread, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and a good dose of nutmeg precede the citrus fruit. No trace of the banana on the palate, but all the more oranges. Some quinine. The wood starts to whisper.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and spicy, almost piquant.

  5. Sandman scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    With a few drops of water she opens very nicely, with a fruit bouquet and sweets.
    • Nose
      Musty sawmill air, liquorice, vanilla, eucalyptus, grass, honey, melon, banana, pear, green apples, heather flowers and mandarins.
    • Taste
      Barley, rye, corn, cereal, vanilla, honey, hazelnut, cinnamon, oak, licorice, melon, pear, apples and lemon peel.
    • Finish
      Short to mid-long, lots of grains, honey, cinnamon, hazelnut, oak, licorice, pear, green apples and lemon peel.

    muffled flavors, too “dirty” for my taste, has a lot going on, but nothing worth noticing
