  3. Calmar scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Medium-quality moths with a noticeable sherry influence (and perhaps bourbon barrels have been here, there is something in the fragrance), the taste is spoiled by burnt plastic, the aroma with a strange herbal dominant, and so normal.
    • Nose
      Open, fresh, some greens (rosemary, thyme ???), anise, medical mixer notes, moldy pickled cucumbers, herbal tincture, cabbage, raw grain, cooled porridge, wet cardboard, a little dried fruit.
    • Taste
      Slightly bitter, slightly astringent, dried fruits, light peppery wave, burnt biscuits, vegetable oil, leavard, dominated by a burnt note with an admixture of plastic, generally shallow and flat.
    • Finish
      Drier than taste, but with the same ingredients, spicy, spices, orange peel, dried fruits.

  4. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in an online blind tasting competition (Westland vs. Penderyn) on 8/10/2016.   
    • Nose
      A bit rubbery (rubber bands), vanilla, green apples. 
    • Taste
      First thought: weird! Pingponging between a bananayoghurt-like plasticness (I said it was weird) and nuts. Yellow raisins. A bit vile, sulphury. Prickly at the tip and sides of the tongue. 
    • Finish
      Lingering candy banana sweetness, some anise, yellow raisins. 

  5. vojt466 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Citrus, sherry, blurred sweetness, alcohol. Lightly some flowers / herbs
    • Taste
      Marzipan, grep, herbs, mint, spices
    • Finish
      Spices, bitter chocolate, light sherry traces, citrus. Nakoc looks bitter - medium-long
