Whisky Reviews for Kingsbarns Spirit Drink

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.52 points

  1. ASWhisky did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    amazingly good and flavorful let's hope it goes on like this
    • Nose
      standing in the glass without movement
      sweetish, very oily, very mild, almond note, floral sweetish notes, slightly grassy, ​​fresh, in the background a hint of an alcohol note, violets in nutmeg
      after a while with exercise
      there he is a bit stingy with a slight alcoholic note - but had presented it to me worse, now also much fruity, young yellow-green apricot Now the schnapps feeling is much clearer
    • Taste
      soft oily onset delicious fruity mild apricot liqueur with lots of nutmeg like schnapps in a praline
    • Finish
      Nutty fruity apricot schnapps relatively long

  2. Archer scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Well, he can do something as a new make, there are a few very nice flavors to discover. If this then continues in the barrel ... Promising.
    • Nose
      Undiluted: Pleasant, not pungent or alcoholic. Mirabelle brandy or Williams is on the rise. Sweet wine gum to it. With water: now he stands out a little. Interesting. The aromas remain so far, but with water overall less intense and fruity. With a few more drops of water, the stinging disappears again (no, the pipette was not left in the glass).
    • Taste
      Dry at the beginning with mirabelle taste and a little banana. One could almost think that there was wood in the game, so dry comes the over. Chocolate and a nice touch of coffee now pass, maybe a hint of toffee. The mirabelle plums are still there, but it's also pretty dry.
    • Finish
      Chocolate and still the idea of ​​a nice apricot schnapps - pleasantly fruity.

  4. lincolnimp scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Is it a lowland thing because this to me tasted very similar to this unpeated new make by Annandale, it was almost identical, basically very fruity, creamy with some coconut in the mix so I will have to give it the same score of 74.

  5. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 3/5 (4/5 for the mouth, with addition of water) "Whiskey" n ° 1776
    • Nose
      It looks pretty fat. We have discrete fruits, such as pear. Everything is a little direct, necessarily, with vegetal notes. The addition of water gives it sweetness.
    • Taste
      Wouch, it's hot! With an interesting vegetal / fruity duo. With a (big) addition of water, it becomes very pleasant to drink, the texture becomes creamy and soft. I swear I felt honeyed notes.
    • Finish
      A little hot too. With water, short and spicy.

  6. KayMeertens did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Sweet and fruity, like kruškovac (plum liquor). I'm not scoring this one as I don't have sensible references and it makes no sense for me to compare it to a scale of matured whiskies. I wouldn't buy something like this for own consumption, but it's probably a spirit with a lot of potential.

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    a new make that is fun. Amazingly tart and "ripe".
    • Nose
      New make, fruity, raspberries, slightly sour fresh (citrus), a certain spicy touch, some pepper, if you put E150 there, you could indeed think, there was already a bit of barrel in the game. Even more raspberry, apple, but also a hint of gum.
    • Taste
      strong, fruity, slightly sour refreshing, then a good dose of bitterness, pepper and alcohol, some juniper. With water already somehow ripe, the fruit flavors are well connected with the bitterness. Very pleasant.
    • Finish
      Tart, warm, slightly sour, fruity and a peppery aftertaste.

  8. ctu scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    It's a very nice start for a new Lowlands distiller.
    Wait for the others.
    • Nose
      Sweet and surprisingly fruity.
      Especially raspberry and strawberry. Metals.
    • Taste
      Sweet and dry. Mixed fruit jams, metals, spices.
      Similar to hungarian palinka.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, slightly alcoholic

  9. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not bad (better than some German 3 Series), you can drink quite virgin, as whiskey all the more promising, because I'm looking forward to it. And the 0.2 sample bottle is fairly priced at ~ 15 € at 63.5%, because you can put more coal into the sand elsewhere, both absolutely and relatively.
    • Nose
      pure: yeasty-sweet, sugar ... reminiscent of Rührkuchenteig (surprisingly little pungent).
      with water dissolve fruity notes, pear, banana, pineapple, a little grassy, ​​in the background but doughy sweetness, even slightly earthy
    • Taste
      sweet and crunchy, malt, cereals, and also the Rührkuchenteig is here, the alcohol stands out here a little more, even with water, slightly metallic, the fruit notes go down to me something sweet, so over-ripe apples-pears and bananas Sugar porridge with a little cinnamon
    • Finish
      long, the stronger the pepper, banana porridge with some lime and brown candy

    note is compared to whisky. As a spirit a nice fruity dram
