  6. Albaron scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Grainy or malty, strong notes, fresh citrus and mint, a nice whisky, I suppose an Arran, maybe the 10?

    As part of a blind tasting tasted

    Amazing that I did not notice the smoke. Even when nachverkosten barely noticeable.
    • Nose
      Creamy toffee, some citrus, pear, coconut, some cereal and slightly 'green'
    • Taste
      Warming, malt, black tea, citrus, mint, a hint of pears, a bit bitter and a touch of oak
    • Finish
      Oak and malt, then light toffee sweetening

  7. rottendon scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    He's not bad, he's not young and he's still NAS. I would tap on an average age of 13 years. He gives me the impression of Laphroaig Light. The smoke profile is not right at all, the herbs are not there, but this Pocket Coffee is close to Laphroaigs liquid block malt. Also, that might be something for the shelf.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, grass and herbs, perfume-like notes, star fruit, seemingly quite delicate smoke. With some life more smoke and clearly fruity, ripe blackberries and quince. Sure, there's no sherry in there?
    • Taste
      Herbs, strong, pocket coffee, dark caramel and barbecue smoke. A good, oily mouthfeel with a nice power development, quite supple.
    • Finish
      All flavors go at about the same speed, which is also relatively fast. Only a slight ashiness remains a little longer, adorned by a few tannins.

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    The smell gives too few notes, which I associate with a single malt. This has something of fruit brandy and new make, even if it smells quite good, the barrel influence is too low. The taste goes in the same direction, although it looks a little more mature. The best thing about this whisky is the finish, which finally brings the typical whisky notes.

    blind tasting
    • Nose
      very fruity, sour, white grapes, exotic, passion fruit, a little grapefruit, very slightly metallic, slightly unripe
    • Taste
      Cool, spicy on a soft, oily body, the acidity of the fruit gives way to the nose a little back, but only a little oak shows, but the impression remains exotic, with a little bitter vanilla behind
    • Finish
      Again, oak, mixed with caramel and vanilla, malt, medium long
