Connoisseur hs305 Review note
20 May 2017 10:08 pm
hs305 gave this whisky 78 points

[May, 2017]  Another one of this newish NAS whiskies many distilleries introduced over the last years simply to mask that they have a serious cask quality problem (due to the whisky boom there are not enough high quality bourbon or sherry casks available so the distilleries have to use virgin oak casks in addition AND reduce the maturation times in quality casks to use the same cask more often).

And exactly this drives the quality of the resulting malts drastically towards the south.  More bitter virgin oakiness, unbalanced profiles and immature spirits combine to rather unpleasant drams (compared to the older standard editions).   And due to the whisky boom they can sell this stuff for even higher prices - scary to see how a whole industry bites the hands that feed them...  Never Accept Stupid marketing!

Nose

Vanille, mit Sherry und Zitrusnoten

Taste

Erst leichte Süße, dann Vanille und Karamell.

Finish

Leichte Schärfe, trocken, später Bitterschokolade. Langer Abgang.

Comments

Eisgekühlt wie empfohlen geht gar nicht, zu alkoholisch, da kann ich mir auch einen Korn genehmigen :-) Mit Zimmertemperatur geht er noch ganz gut. Davon sind meine Notes.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Nose

Honey, figs, caramel, dates, fudge, a little spice and cut grass that has been left a while and is starting to break down. Nothing unusual or great about this nose. 

Taste

It tastes very sugary to me and bitter like when you used to put a 2p coin in your mouth as a kid. Now there is a taste you never forget. The mixing or marriage on this is poor. Quite forgettable. 

Finish

Some sort of chocolate raisins and you think Mmmmmmm then it whips the carpet from under you by completely nose diving. 

Comments

This is one of the poorest Nas bottlings I have ever tried and the remarkable thing is it costs more than the 15. 

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Nose

vanille,fruits jaunes -blancs(mandarine,poire),un peu de souffre

Taste

un peu de bois ,d'herbes,de la vanille encore ,des épices assez forts,des fruits un peu indifférenciès!une note de bruyère?

Finish

courte! et plate!

Comments

pour la petite histoire,les alambics qui sortent du toit pour rafraîchir au niveau du serpentin,la gougère tendre ,un peu épicée et humectée de gruyère qui apporte plus de senteurs que ce liquide!
