Whisky Reviews for Mac Malden Black Malden

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.13 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    a Highland Park, originally barrels washed with kercher with sherry to impregnate faster !!
    DIY feeling, but it still looks like a Kavalan sherry!
    • Nose
      peat, cherry sherry!
    • Taste
      melting bitumen, soot, sherry, oily feeling, tarred, vanilla back!
    • Finish
      peat, sherry on the line of a Kavalan with less depth!
      Feeling maderized!

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Already on the origin: a single Orkney malt that does not reveal his birth certificate. Odd no? Headshot: Scapa or Highland Park? Nose: Peat, soot, ham too grilled, even burned. Maritime. Then orange peel. In the mouth, accessible: peaty but also sweet. The fruits are strangely absent, especially on this type of barrels, surely masked by the peat, which is not so overwhelming. A little steep swallowing and there is smoke in the final. Cooked apple in retro-olfaction. Pleasant and no real flaw, but the curtain is so low that raising arms, I touch the ceiling.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    On the nose, peat and caramel On the palate, sweetness, few fruits, scattered aromas worthy of a blended, and smoke in return! In the final, it's simple and short!

    interesting but the value for money is disappointing, lack of character and power
    • Nose
      sweet peat almost erased
    • Taste
      sweet attack, round enough, the peat finally arrives!
    • Finish
      some slight notes of smoke, the port cask appears a little

  5. Titi94 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tasting sheet (official): Dress: very dark, black coffee. Nose: the power of the peat takes the nose. Iodine and smoke develop all the wealth. Palate: tar, camphor and minty mint. Finish: broad and strong, concentrated peat ending with notes of salted butter caramel.
    My comment: the Porto and Cherry casks are very pleasantly present and blend well with the peat present. He would have asked for a little more power (48-50%) and length in the mouth for my taste. Still remains interesting to discover.
