Whisky Reviews for Match Whisky 05-year-old BBBl

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.80 points

  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: open, lemon candy, zest, grain, oatmeal, sawdust. Over time, some kind of chemical and industrial notes begin to emerge - paraffin, colored pencils (lead), plywood; wood and grain-flour theme intensifies.

    Taste: light, honey-lemonade, moderately sweet, zest spices, herbal bitterness, fruit lollipops.

    Finish: shorter than average, not sweet lemonade, zest, bitter infusion of medicinal herbs, which dominates here after a quick departure sweetness.

    Rating: 79

    Bottom line: a great blend of the 80s, an interesting non-repulsive aroma, with taste and finish all the worse, but not surprising for a commercial fortress. At the level of some of the current initial spears from Speyside, it’s quite possible to drink and have fun without adding juice and soda, unlike what they’re doing now ...
    The bottle came to an end very quickly!

    A plain blend, in bright colors, nothing special, but drinkable, a nose a little better than the taste-finish

    This was a sample courtesy of lincolnimp . Sorry linc , I tried . 
    • Nose
      Spent a lot of time with this one before something came through , eventually toasted brown bread , a slight whiff of vinegar and cut grass . 
    • Taste
      As I was swilling this around my mouth, the first thing that sprang to mind was beer , some sort of real ale.
    • Finish
      The finish was short and disappointing , quite forgettable .

    I think this is a bargain for what I paid for it and its better than many of the new NAS malts. It is only 5 years old but it is a quality blend.

    I like it,
    • Nose
      Sweet honey and candied fruits, old cough syrup (menthol) and caramel. It reminds me a little of Fisherman's Friends cough sweets but more subtle. Finally peaches in syrup.
    • Taste
      Nice first attack, I thought it was thin but then the tongue gets coated in sweetness. Sweet with a sherbet fizz and a little salted caramel but actually its more like peanut brittle.

      There is some fruit but it is in the background, mainly peach and mango.
    • Finish
      approaching medium length with a nice coffee sweetness.
