  1. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    Initial nose and taste like pure spirit with only a few other flavors.

    A really bad example of a single malt scotch whisky.

  3. elzAberino scored this whisky 30 points Member Senior

    Blindtasting: very young, guess 3 years, about 58%, now belongs to a "worst" list :)
    • Nose
      Due to the pungent alcohol note it looks quite fresh. Very straight, light grapes and lemon, oak, slightly musty. It does not smell like whisky
    • Taste
      Tastes totally Grappa. (I hate Grappa!), Bubbly, really not my cup of tea. Tastes otherwise a bit woody.
    • Finish
      Still grappa, but not very fruity. Short and tingling, rather dry.

    Continuation of the blind tasting fifth of 24 drams. A good dram (the best so far) which is not too young from my point of view (maybe 16 years) but still having a lot of alcohol which is well implemented (56% is my guess). The distillery is from the Speyside (my guess) but I have no idea which one it could be.Ok Speyside was good and also the alcohol not too far away but I would have never expected such a young dram. Well done Aberlour!
    • Nose
      bloom honey but very decent, plums in rum and some herbs. The alcohol is tickling the nose but not too much and the dram itself is quite complex 
    • Taste
      sweet start with a lot of honey but also a bit of grapefruit (so fruity and sour) and you realise the dram has power and carrying the taste but the alcohol is well implemented.
    • Finish
      a sweet finish no real bitterness and quite long. The alcohol is warming the throat but is not negative

    Not bad at all, although I think that's a pretty young thing again. But has a lot of character. The only disturbing thing is the sprittingness.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Starts very closed, except for a breath of alcohol there is nothing at first. After a while you will find vanilla, honey, a lot of caramel, some cake dough, ripe pears and salt. He is still tickling something in his nose. From time to time come now tart approaches of tea and herbs, jasmine and vermouth tea or solution in medical alcohol. After some time without movement, there is a sparkling touch of cream caramel, the alcoholic tips are gone. If you move it, you are back in the salty herbs in alcohol. Warm salty peanuts in caramel, a mix of Mr. Tom and Payday.
    • Taste
      A clear continuation of the nose, caramel with herbs and a little bit of alcohol, not even so strong in alcohol, but just slightly sprittig. Pretty tart at the back and salty. Pretty full mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      In the finish, he goes slightly warming as he came, first salty, caramel with a slightly bitter Tanninanflug, tendency herbal tea. Finally, the occupancy of the oral cavity is actually reminiscent of pears, the circle has closed.
