Whisky Reviews for J.P. Wiser's 18-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.92 points

  1. Squinugie scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Latte, grapefruit and a real hit of honeyed toffee

    Palate:
    Apple, Russet Pear, a hint of cigar and tobacco, white pepper and ginger

    Finish:
    Not long and reminded me of the aftertaste of a Cadbury's Caramel but also a whiff of hazelnut

    Summary:
    Overall I enjoyed this but felt it lacked complexity for an 18 year old

  2. HunterRomario scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I tasted the sample imported from the Whiskey Festival 2017. It's pious, but I expected more interesting drink due to age and nice bottle. A big jump over McCormick did not come to me.
    • Nose
      The smell reminded me of my former McCormick blend in Canada. Lacquer, a bit of cut leather, a mood (which was surprising by 18 yo). Hazelnuts, light smoky, maple syrup and some windyness of coniferous forest. Overall, it's a lighter flavor, just plain Canadian blend. (80 b)
    • Taste
      Floury, varnished, leather, walnut, spirits, with spicy reverberation. The interesting thing is that after venting, a glass of vitacity or scum will remain in the glass, later it will turn into nuts and oak. (80 b)

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    With a nicer finish would be worth the price for 18 years, so there is a small vermouth stopper. One of those Americans who, despite the sounding notes, is not so much for Christmas as more for a nice BBQ in the fall for a sweet accompaniment.
    • Nose
      Dark molasses, wood, saffron reminds me partly of dark single cask molasses rums in the nose of Guadaloupe (Bellevue Dist.), Maple syrup, creme brulee, resin, brown sugar
    • Taste
      Herbal schnapps and still dark molasses rum, what's that? Hazelnut nougat bar, maple syrup, pancakes, lightest smoked aromas, sugar candy, syrup, some licorice
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry, bitter-oaky, not very nice, nose and taste were much better

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Here, too, I have the impression, as in the 10s, that much has been helped with "flavoring", such a taste is found neither in (old) Scottish blends nor in the US relatives with similar grain mix. Hard to guess what flavor is really due to the "18" and whether it is more of a splash on the bottle (and to justify the € 60) and you could have created the same taste with younger Whiskey. Again, if you like something sweet, liqueur like pimped, quite delicious, for purists rather nothing.
    • Nose
      woody-spicy: freshly sawn wood, pencil sharpener, a bit resinous, cloves, white pepper ... behind it a little crème brûlée and forest honey
    • Taste
      sweet and herbal, ricola, candy, nut nougat cream, maple syrup, oak
    • Finish
      long, dry, burned sugar, woody-bitter
