    Was my first Slyrs. Unusual but quite good.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Is that whisky or rum? Very sweet in the nose, fruitiness comes through, which? Hmmm....
    • Taste
      84 84
      Here too, difficult to grasp because here too a sweetness is in the foreground, which I did not expect.
    • Finish
      87 87
      For me the best part of the whisky. The finish is not very long, but failed. Sweet again, again fruit and in the end a cinnamon note.

    • Nose
      84 84
      very soft, overwhelmingly fruity-sweet, almost caramel-like nose, actually more familiar to me from a rum or grain whisky
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet, woody dryness, bitterness
    • Finish
      80 80
      creamy, sweet, alcoholic, not very long

    this is an extreme fruit bomb. And that makes him special. But everything else, which makes for me a really good whisky is missing. Where is the force, where is the complexity, where is the barrel? Too bad, this Slyrs does not meet the expectations that you want to put in him because of the high price
    • Nose
      Alcohol, apricot, cereals, some spices. Fruit gum. Later a little sour.
    • Taste
      Very fruity, with carnation. Too little power.
    • Finish
      Fairly long, very fruity finish. Almost no oak or bitterness.

    • Nose
      First of all a lot of wood. Then (bitter) almonds are added. Reminds of Amaretto. A very different nose.
    • Taste
      Mild entrance. Again a lot of wood. Apricot. Vanilla but not sweet.
    • Finish
      Will be dry and slightly bitter. Unfortunately not very long.

  5. maltaholic scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Totally overrated and overpriced ...
    • Nose
      A wonderful aroma, soft and sweet. Somehow different, difficult to describe.
    • Taste
      But then in the taste a bit sprightly, almost immature ...
    • Finish
      Not Saying.
