Whisky Reviews for Slitisian Single Malt

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 70.75 points

  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 62 points Connoisseur

    Color: straw, very bright

    - the smoke is not in the smell but only in the
    To feel the taste
    - but a cold ash smoke and little to hardly any
    - not really convinced of the taste
    - I wouldn't call it drinkable but tasty
    - for about 50 € much too expensive for the quality shown
    - for the money prefer Ardbeg 10, Caol Ila 12, Laphraoig
    Quarter Cask, Bunnahabhain 12 or many others
    buy, all are worlds better, completely different
    taste league
    - unfortunately a negative example for German whisky
    • Nose
      strict, strong, at first unmanageable alcoholic, after several smells, subtle fruit nuances come to the fore, there is not much of smoke
    • Taste
      oW: now the smoke content comes out clearly, not really aromatic smoke but rather cold ash smoke, slightly fruity but covered by smoke,

      with water: still quite smoky, cold smoke and alcohol are unfortunately the only things that remain in the mouth
    • Finish
      medium-long smoky finish;
      medium-long smoky aftertaste

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Interesting part and really has nothing in common with the non-smoky variants, the nose still reveals clear weaknesses on the part of the youth, but in the mouth it convinces me in terms of taste, even if it goes in the rather special direction and more like an iced coffee than reminds of a whisky, which doesn't have to be bad per se ;-)
    • Nose
      Fizzy, cold coffee, dry smoke, it stings a bit in the nose, really extremely like coffee grounds, the smoke is rather light, malt, after the first sip a bit of dark chocolate is added, overall somehow cold, which is probably due to the alcohol
    • Taste
      oily, malt, coffee, iced coffee, vanilla, sweet, the smoke is there, full-bodied, not bad in the mouth feel, like the nose in terms of the aromas, but more pleasant, the second sip is even better, it goes quite well in the mouth
    • Finish
      Lots of coffee, with a hint of smoke, very light chocolate, floral, rather short
