15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.40 points

  1. ctu scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Single malt under € 20?! It's not a big boom, but it's fair for that price.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Unripe apple, mandarin, spicy oak, marzipan and vanilla.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Thin but creamy. Fruits, honey, Cointreau and burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium length, sweet, spicy.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    After a nice and fresh nose, this whisky disappoints in the body and finish. It appeared to be a little bit above average step-in whisky, but the body is pretty weak.
    Not bad, but really nothing special here.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fruity, oranges, pear, a little bit of glue, sweet, vanilla, fresh apples as well.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Wow, this is disappointing. As fruity as it smells, the body suddenly is very weak and pale, watery mouthfeel. Some sweet, oranges, some honey and vanilla. It more and more turns into a cheap blend.
    • Finish
      78 78
      A little pungent now, again pretty pale, sweet, honey, and a very slight hint of drop. Pretty short.

  3. cask9220 scored this whisky 60 points Member Junior

    No, no, no .... Disappointment. Too light. Burnt taste. Design of the bottle is the only positive of this whisky.

  4. Stevon Marsh scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    Nose

    76

    very gentle, but a little simple.
    Brush of apple.
    Sherry influence not noticable but caramel notes?


    Taste



    A bit steady and watery mouthfeel.

    Fruit note comes through

    Finish

    Dry but smooth

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 70 points Specialist

    Considered buying this. Thanks to karloff for the sample and the savings of a full bottle.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Sweet and very gentle, but also a little simple.
      Mandarin and some apple.
      Sherry influence is noticable but very vague.
      Burnt sugar/caramel?
      It gives the impression of an engineered Speyside NAS.
      Like they've tried to copy Glen Grant Major's Reserve.
    • Taste
      70 70
      A bit thin and watery mouthfeel.
      Again I get the feeling of something burnt.
      Fruit, but it's more of a mashed mixed pulp than any particular striking note.
    • Finish
      64 64
      Dry, bitter and futile. And twice the lenght would still have been short. But, yes, there are a few hazel nuts hanging on the sudden death.

  6. YuraLM scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Rounded, pleasant, well balanced.
    • Nose
      Smoke, sweet, soft notes. Red fruits, appricot, marcipan, Sicilyan orange
    • Taste
      Smoky, a little bit of melted melon, candied fruits, raisins, caramel
    • Finish
      Long lasting, citrus, caramel, toffee

  8. karloff scored this whisky 45 points Specialist

    This is the first Tamnavulin single malt wildly  available to the public for a long time and it's poor. Sign of the times and it's a shame. 
    • Nose
      A bit nutty at first then brown wrapping paper. Keeping to the brown theme, brown ale.

      There are some fruit notes but i get melon, tinned peach and ripe red apple. The nose isn't great and it's making me work to find things. Is this a tell tale sign.
    • Taste
      Yeah just as i suspected, the taste isn't great either. in fact if someone gave me this blind, i would swear it was a blend and not a great one at that. The fruit notes are a bit stewed this time but over stewed and a few days old. It feels like i have popped an old battery in my mouth. How do i now what that tastes like? Probably did it when i was a kid.
    • Finish
      The finish is short bland and bitter with some nuttiness on the death.

  10. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm Nose and Mouth 3/5 Final 2/5
    A single malt that does not break 3 legs to a duck but whose strong point is the texture, the reduction is very well mastered. Whisky n ° 1605
    • Nose
      Light and fresh initially, it gives banana and some dried fruits (a combination that is very reminiscent of Armorik Sherry Cask). The nose gets a little cup with the opening.
    • Taste
      Not very spicy but creamy, we have some hazelnuts and a hint of coconut. Very beautiful texture for a 40%!
    • Finish
      Quite short with some spices
