  1. keizerjos scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This kind of ABV is usually too powerful for me. The smell is very intense and the taste has something of molasses and sticks to your tongue. Yet I can taste the dessert wine at this great wine maker, deep sweet and sharp. Really just a splash of water, I can feel the cells in my esophagus mutate, this cannot be healthy.
    With some water there is more detail in the taste, but the whisky also gets a little more peppery and sharper. More wood and note tones now. Tobacco and especially leather. It is not dirty, it is sweet, with a detail here and there.
    Even more water. Now he can really be done. Finally some softness and now I only taste the peat that is mentioned here and there in other people's reviews (!). He can now be used - and then he is really disappointing. I am not sorry that it is a sample and not a bottle.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    English Whisky Co. 7 yo 2007/2015 (63.4%, Blackadder, Raw Cask, Moscatel cask, cask #789, 248 bottles) Plain and utter madness, this. Moscatel! Even Caol Ila did succumb when they finished it in Moscatel… Colour: gold. Nose: sit down, calm down, take your time… Because this just f***g burns! Yeast, leaven, new sneakers, old barrels, porridge (yesterday’s)… Not too sure, really… With water: I guess this is what’ you’d get, should you distil pineapples in a column still. Mouth (neat): new make. With water: I really don’t know. An UFS (Unidentified Flying Spirit). Extra-coarse, even when at +/-40% vol. Finish: not too sure. Apple juice? Cherry juice? Comments: Iwo Jima was a piece of cake compared to this (with heartfelt apologies to our most distinguished American friends). We all know they like to joke at Blackadder’s, but this could be lethal. They had a Sauternes version as well, which I liked much better. Now, have fun, buy a bottle, and invite your mother-in-law… Because, yes it’s sweet! SGP:651 - 60 points(for the fun of it).

    Local liquor store tasting by Whisky Import Nederland

    For me, winner of the evening. Great young peated whisky. 

    Nose: first sweet, warm, and a bit of vanilla. Obvious Peat to contrast these young whisky notes. Aged gouda cheese, cured ham, like Parma or Serano.

    Taste: Blast of intense peaty flavours. Peppery smoke, cured ham. Also a bit sweet.

    Finish: Peat. Salt and pepper. A little sweet, almost artificial sweeteners.
