|Craig Daniels||Nose: caramel and a hint of mint, some bitter herbs (rocket and endive).
Palate: thin, sweet and herbal. Lacks any grip.
Finish; surprisingly short; herbal with wood bitters.
Comment: chock-a-block with spirit caramel but otherwise pretty inoffensive. Not the worst whisky I've ever tasted, but not a good one either. |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Black, tarmac
- Nose: Rich, dark, caramelised whisky with a hint of wood-smoke.
- Palate: Rich and chewy, caramel, treacle toffee and a hint of rich, dark coffee beans.
- Finish: Quite long with caramel & treacle toffee right on the front of the tongue.
- Overall Impression: It's rich, it's dark, it has lots of caramel and rich treacle toffee and it's almost as chewy, but it's not quite the old used ashtray I feared. Is it good? No. Would I buy a full bottle? No. Another sample? Yes-ish. |
|Oliver Klimek||Colour: Dark chestnut -
Nose: Weak, lemon and orange zest are barely detectable. -
Palate: Weak and undefined, slighty bitter and herbal after some chewing around. -
Finish: Short and meaningless. -
Overall: The best thing you can say about this whisky is that it tastes of almost nothing. Which makes it different from Loch Dhu and - in a way - slightly more enjoyable. |
