  1. rottendon scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Boh, so if not 65%, the alcohol is not well integrated. As a non-aquatic friend, I will try it with water now. So that's not the solution. Is of the flavors quite interesting, but the burning disturbs but massive. Too bad.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Well, if I look at the reviews here, there is also a lot "in the Distille euphoria" here.
    • Nose
      Slightly alcoholic and fleeting at the beginning, it quickly becomes gentler. Does settle with time, but remains alcoholic a bit snappy. In addition, there are also very rich toffee notes as well as slightly sour overtones and a pinch of dry herbs. Exercise makes it fresher again, sorrel and cooked peaches. Still a little bitter herb, slightly grassy. A touch of mint. Warms fuller, darker, sweeter, but also more alcoholic. Caramell macchiato.

      At first he does not open up with water, on the contrary, he completely flattens out. After a long service life, the alcohol tickles, despite the relatively high intake of water in the nose. On the flavors side, nothing has changed, caramel and herbs, thinner than pure. Slightly more sweat than before, so unlike before, it's worth mentioning. Nothing heats up either.
    • Taste
      Also in the mouth rather hot. Dark sweetness, malty caramel, in addition to herbs, but dominated here absolutely the alcoholic sharpness, which begins after a few moments. But until then at least the mouthfeel is very nice and full.

      With water, I thought at first, I had done it, full of flavor, nice chocolaty, only slightly dry, nice mouthfeel and then he started to burn again. For the mouth, the water has been well worth it, only seems to be thirsty.
    • Finish
      After a strong spike, he quickly goes into the finish and is also pretty quick away, except for a leg of the tongue, which is reminiscent of dark chocolate with tart herbs.

      Water makes the finish deliciously chocolaty, but it shortens it immensely. Here he loses the bottom line.

    Blind tasting : Clearly no sherry, but I like it. The sweetness in combination with herbs and slight bitterness is just delicious. 84 points
    • Nose
      Bam! Sweet Honey! Moment ... herbal honey. Behind it come citrus fruit to the fore and also a noticeable malt note, which is almost dominant after a few minutes. Something else is floating around, maybe it's the combination of herbs, citrus and some oak, but I feel reminded of Bitter-Lemon.
    • Taste
      Here, too, especially the herbal honey, the malt is somewhat displaced by the oak, the lemon peel rubbed together with the citrus fruits, for Bitter Lemon, it is now but not a bit bitterly enough! A slightly astringent mouthfeel suggests a cask strength, but alcoholic sharpness is luckily sought in vain.
    • Finish
      It remains a very slight bitterness and the herbs that warm the throat for a long time.

  4. Truco63 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Blind Tasting a Sample from the Whisky Advent Calendar 2016 by Marco Bonn
    • Nose
      no smoke, vanilla, light fruit (mirabelle, pear, a hint of citrus, ...), You notice that there is a lot of alcohol in the game, but it is well integrated, a little malt, slightly creamy, a bit of butter toast, smells great, needs something Time in the air, then comes through wood
    • Taste
      strong alcohol, lots of light fruit (grape? / citrus? / pear? not clear), vanilla, creamy, a hint of butter toast, slightly sweet
      With water: becomes more complex, more fruit, more malt and butter toast, softer, not so alcoholic
    • Finish
      warms intensively, medium, at the end with water a bit grassy, ​​a bit dry

  5. Segens scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Continuation of the blind tasting twelfth of 24 drams. Unfortunately I was sick for some days so I am 12 days behind :) For me the worst dram so far and I guess a very strong (66%) and very young dram (5 years) and maybe from the Speyside. I am happy that this experience is already over!Wow I cannot understand these ratings of 90+ ... 
    • Nose
      Oak and too much alcohol. Not well implemented. Of course some honey and fruitiness if you wanna be creative but not my nose…
    • Taste
      Very warm, some herbs and fruitiness but then completely overpowered. Too much alcohol and not balanced
    • Finish
      beewax and some fruits and herbs but also bitter.

  6. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: goes off well, a good portion of malt and cereals, followed by sweet fruit notes, a lot of ripe apple and applesauce, neat vanilla and some coconut, strong alcohol, it makes him feel peppery, he wants water

    Taste: strong alcohol, very fruity, creamy, again a lot of ripe apple

    Finish: medium long, very intense fruit sweetness that lasts a long time, later comes the first time oak comes into the game, without becoming bitter.

    With water: he is much softer and still remains strong - a real swimmer! Ingenious sweetness with love apple flavor, behind it comes sweetened popcorn.

    Great whisky! 87 points
