  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A sweet, sweet, woody dram, with a triptych vanilla, caramel sweet and woody characteristic!
    • Nose
      woody sweetness, spices, vanilla
    • Taste
      sweet, non-peppery spices, malt, a characteristic and pronounced woody vanilla sensation, young fruits on the apple or fresh pear, a honeyed sensation at the end with a little caramel
    • Finish
      rather short and on the same aromas, a bit too monolithic.

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm: Nose and mouth: 3/5 Final 4/5 Whisky n ° 1633
    • Nose
      Vanilla. A strange note of ether and paper that happily cup. Ripe fruit - plums, melon. It becomes opulent, with wood chips.
    • Taste
      Vanilla again, it is fluid and sweet, while missing a little weight. Simple and efficient.
    • Finish
      Beautiful body. Spice. Vanilla takes on a truly superior dimension! And persistent with that.

    Acetone
    If you put whisky and Taiwan in one sentence, chances are you are talking about Kavalan. But since 2008 the Nantou Distillery – a state owned company – also produces whisky and by now two of their bottles can be found in my neck of the woods: the Omar Bourbon and the Omar Sherry. Let’s give those a try, staring with the bourbon version.
    The nose is rather closed and only after several minutes of hand warmth does it offer up some floral aromas, vanilla, sweet barley, white sugar, sweetened butter and the crust of a bread that was overbaked. Not bad, but far from good. Notes of acetone of wood glue ruin the experience for me.
    The mouthfeel is somewhere between watery and oily. I would not have minded a little more body. It is light in taste, somewhat fresh and sweet on white (mostly apples) and loads of honey. Some spices kick in: pepper, nutmeg and ginger. A touch of oak. A grape pith bitterness.
    I would classify the finish as medium long, but quite bitter and mildly dry.
    An interesting alternative from Taiwain, but it still has a long way to go before it can compete with even a standard release from Kavalan. Unfortunately already 80 EUR, which is way too expensive for this whisky.

  8. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    There is a discernible quality to the whisky and the casks used to mature it. In Taiwan, it's not as expensive, so quality for price is much more reasonable. I found that a teaspoon of water to about a 50ml measure
    tones down the citrus and fruit notes and accentuates the honey malt and
    vanilla on the nose. The palate takes a few minutes after adding the water, but
    it becomes more bourbon like. Cherries and brown sugar with a touch of vanilla,
    but there's still that green malt sour-sweetness.
    • Nose
      Pear and ripe pineapple, honey malt with a touch of fruit
      vinegar, a touch of cola, vanilla and milk chocolate, green apples and hay,
      citrus and zest, and savory herbs (sage/dill) and green grain.
    • Taste
      Mixed cereal grains, citrus and barrel char, honey liqueur and oak, and brown sugar.
    • Finish
      Slow
      fade to dark chocolate, soft vanilla-rich oak tannins, and fresh hay with a
      hint of green malt sour-sweetness.

      spicy
