Whisky Reviews for Békési Manufaktúra 2002

  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 32 points Expert Senior

    The nose was really good to be honest, the palate was not so good, but still had some entertaining flavors. The finish was poor and leaves a bit to be desired, like an ice cube or something. I’m greatful to my friends Stefan and Hanna for bringing me a bottle.

    Rating interval 62-65.
    • Nose
      Sweet malt and spices with some exotic fruit, banana and melon. Vanilla, straw (some dry grass almost), oily mineral and some leather. There is also some molasses or dry grapes, would probably not recognize this as a whisky if tasted blind. More a rum or a flavored rum even.
    • Taste
      Sweet and bitter arrival, wood spice and nutmeg. It a bit like biting on a grape kernel and at the same time bright, like undermatured spirit. Huge lack of integration between the spirit and the cask. Not as pleasant as expected from the nose. If the nose was more like a rum, I would definitely go for a matured fruity grappa on the palate, but definitely not a whisky.
    • Finish
      The finish is bitter sweet, slightly metal notes coming through, and a bit raw plastic.
