Whisky Reviews for Robertson's 08-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.00 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Palate is better than the nose, as usual with blends (they're made for drinking instead of nosing by some whisky geeks...). A chewy whisky.
    • Nose
      Light maltiness with floral notes. Hints of cut grass, hay and heather. Some greenhouse associations as well. Not much else.
    • Taste
      Quite a lot of fruity sweetness of mango, pineapple and papaya. Lemon. It's relatively waxy mouthfilling too. Roasted nuts. Vanilla breaks through after a while. Even a hint of peat smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Grapefruit bitterness. A little nutmeg and ginger. Liquorice at the end.

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A nice part. I liked it.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Rich gold

      Nose:
      Begins for me with a fermented, light fruit note. Followed by salad spice, some maggi and pine needle oil. A flag of smoke joins. With some time in the glass comes wet leather, damp leaves and just a nice forest scent.
      The colleague smells totally different. But I like it pretty much.
    • Taste
      Easy start with some alcoholic bite. Again the Maggi. In addition a portion of Modrigkeit and fermented grapes. The light fruity taste goes in the direction of peach. Bitter almonds and cereals. Followed by a bit of plastic and ginger. This nice, fine smoky note I find in the taste again.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Spicy bitterness. The flag of smoke and subtle creamy sweetness.
