  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Strange, atypical but a little disturbing acidity.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, ABI, slightly lemony, some pineapple, yellow fruits and wood. A lot of acidity which worries me a little.
    • Taste
      Alcohol moderately integrated. Acidity of pineapple and lemon. A whisky dry and little sweet, astringent end.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, bitter cocoa, sour and bitter, a bit sour sweet. slight traces of pepper.

    ‘The Char Monster’
    N: Two Strathmill’s tonight, a 20yo WB and a 22yo WB both from Whisky Broker.Not sure what cask[s] we have here, but i detect some [sherried] sulphur, eggy-clay and heavily burned/charred onions. There’s not a lot else here but boy, it kind of works. There are peat monsters and sherry monsters, now bring forth the Char monster!
    T: More sulphur but its ok, i’m going with it. Theres a deep-bitter, oak charring that starts us off but gradually the barley fights back.
    F: With the barley almost level pegging, the bitter notes re-ignite as bitter-sour charred lemons roar! Sappy. vanilla custard creams at the death, but its the charcoal that reigns. A woody-grain oily/waxiness is maintained all the way through.
    C: Messy and somewhat unorthodox, and yet kind of fabulous. Underneath all that charring could be a less than pretty malt. As it is it kind of works, so Im giving this the benefit of the doubt.

    Scores a C [82]
