  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    This is not very good it has a weird off note like cereals that have gone past their best and the palate is drying but as it says on the bottle it is an IPA Experiment so something different I suppose.

    There is a side to his that for some reason reminds me of Famous Grouse.Drinkable but not my thing and I do not like the nose.

    On the nose, spices, varied fresh fruits and "hops"!
    On the palate, it stings immediately, a little rough, fruit in the vein apple pear, spices quite sweet, a little dry on the tongue, we do not smell the beer, but a tannic side.
    In the final, it's short !!
    A finish flirting with the IPA beers that have made their happiness, here it does not bring much more!

    A pleasant surprise. You can smell the usual Glenfiddich but here a bit sweeter and less fresh apples, more like apple pie. Very mellow (in good meaning) on the tongue. Great everyday dram.

  5. The Prophet scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    I have not been very successful at pinpointing the influence of IPA. otherwise, it remains a correct malt, nothing more, with a sweet finish, almost a little too much.

    Not bad, but doesn't leave a lasting impression. Very short finish, smooth, works well with a beer (IPA)....

  8. Achany scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    very light on the nose, very subtle. on the palate there is some sweet and light glenfiddich style. blossoms, some vanilla, some traces of fruit and the impact of the IPA casks. Slowly at first but to the end it gets quite bitter. too bitter for me at the finish. Nice dram, not for everyday

    To my shame, I tasted an IPA for the first time a few weeks ago> the whisky with such barrels ennobled tastes me a lot better than the - for my taste a bit nuts - beer itself ... The experiment does not seem to me to have failed!
    • Nose
      Does not smell too strong, but very pleasant. Lychee, malt, a non-repulsive sweetness, rounded off with orange, also a bit like a fir-tree
    • Taste
      a little young (the alcohol stings very softly), but very interesting, vanilla, fruits (especially still the lychees), everything like a punch
    • Finish
      fruity, slight bitterness of orange kernels, backed by a subtle hint of vanilla
