Connoisseur Andytka3 Review note

Andytka3 gave this whisky 72 points

N- Sweet menthol, tobacco with mint chocolate and savoury pepper. Soft sherry influence, should be high proportion of 2nd and 3rd filled cask, elementary, fine tuned, humble and not expressive.


P- Smoky wood, charred spicy with sweet malt and some dried fruits. Lack width despite having bottled at 46%. Suppressive character, narrow.


F- Medium, sweet spicy notes linger on thin structure, Simple and easy.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
