  1. whisky313 scored this whisky 75 points Specialist

    Triple Malt = three malted grains (60% wheat, 30% barley and 10% oats)

    "Really tasty". That comes to my mind first. If you've got stuck with similar sweet (sherry) whiskys and want to break out of your bladder, you're in the right place. The alcohol content cannot be tasted as alcohol, it is converted into pure taste. The mix makes it quite unique and special. A really great product.
    • Nose
      Aroma: (honey) sweet, vanilla, some spices, no fruit. Knowing which other grains besides barley are involved, it is more reminiscent of the wheat in "Maker's Mark" than you might at first believe. Even if oats are not always millet, they remind me a little of "Koval Millet".
    • Taste
      Much rougher than the smell. Less sweet at first and tastes more like dry wheat, but with more saliva it also goes in a sweetish direction again. In no way comparable to the merciless roughness of a rye.
    • Finish
      Becoming drier and rough, bitter.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Solid part, even goes in the direction of delicious, if you like the sweetness. You can tell, that he is not the oldest, a bit edgy he is still, but sprittig / biting / metallic there is nothing more, for 5 years is already very OK.
    Blind, I would have typed a successful German representative.
    • Nose
      very sweet, slightly spicy, gingerbread, honey, coconut, cinnamon
    • Taste
      see nose, but sweeter, with milk chocolate and a touch of pepper
    • Finish
      medium length, dark chocolate, oak, slightly peppery-warm

  4. HunterRomario scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Southwold English Distillery in Suffolk.
    Three types of malt, 60% wheat, 30% barley and 10% oats were used for this whisky.
    Alcohol: 47%
    Aroma: Cucumber pickle, honey, candy "sweet", dill, malt, flowers. (84 pts)
    Taste: Relatively strong and intense in taste, full of fresh wood and once again feel the pickle from cucumbers. Creamy, white chocolate aftertaste. (84 pts)
    Points: 84
    Summary: My opening shot at the Whisky Festival Radebeul 2019.

    It is drinkable I suppose (just), almost like a preprandial, prepandial if you will. For the money you could buy something decent, not much for your money on show here.
