Nose

Frisse geur van fruit en bloemen met accenten van bier (hop waarschijnlijk) en kruiden.

Taste

Zachte smaak van vanille en een lichte biersmaak.

Finish

Ook die hop-smaak komt terug in de stevige afdronk.

Hi all,

does anyone happen to know what is the difference between this bottling (2016) and the 2015 one?
Thanks

Nose

From the rim this smells more or less like a standard Glenfiddich 12.

Pull it slowly away to lower the alc presence and... yes, it smells pleasantly like a light beer.

Go deeper down and it's sweet and very fruity fresh.

Apples, oranges, maybe more tangerine, perhaps even some pineapple.

Also a floral perfumy scent in there, but I can't name it.

Can't notice any hops, but it's a very nice nose.


Taste

This was surprisingly nice!

Sweet, light vanilla, burnt sugar.

Fruity, caramelized apples, pears, some orange but not as much as on the nose.

Very nice spice, white pepper, warming, just on the edge of a gentle bite.


Finish

Finish goes past medium.

Sweet, fruity, spicy, a little dry and to my taste just the right bitterness in this combo.

The aftertaste is actually very much like a beer with the added warmth of spice.

Two worlds successfully merged in my opinion.

Nose

Doux, suave, "farine de bois", fruits en sirop. C'est très joli ! (mais pas très intense cela dit)

Taste

Attaque un peu faiblarde, mais ça va. Epices douces, assez juteux. Fluide. Notes de vanille. Fin de bouche un peu amère

Finish

Fruitée, avec une légère amertume persistante. Un peu trop simple, mais l'essentiel ici n'est pas la complexité.

Comments

En terme de pur plaisir, c'est une réussite !

Enthousiasme : 4/5

Bouche et finale : 3/5

Whisky n°1527

Au nez,épices,fruits frais variés et "houblon"!
En bouche,ça pique de suite,un peu rêche,des fruits dans la veine pomme poire,des épices assez doux,un peu de sécheresse sur la langue,on ne sent pas la bière ,mais un côté tannique.
En finale ,c'est court!!
Une finition flirtant avec les bières IPA qui ont fait leur bonheur,ici celà n'apporte pas grand chose de plus!

If you like young, bitter whisky, this is the bottle for you. It's definitely not a profile I find appealing.  I'm hoping this will make an interesting cocktail ingredient.  I definitely won't be drinking the rest of it neat.
