Whisky Reviews for Van Loon 2012

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 71.00 points

  1. Mephisto scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    This is a really tricky whisky! I never tasted one like this. To be honest, not my favorite ...
    • Nose
      Acidic, hints of caramel, wooden and herbal. A little bit like a wood or tree gum. Some ham or a pork loin during you roast it. It sounds weird, bit it is unique and interesting, although a bit scary.
    • Taste
      Really strong and sour herbs, sherry and wood. Some odd notes remind of savoury food, maybe tomato soup and goat cheese.
    • Finish
      Wooden, herbal again. Actually a strange taste.
