Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes From Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Colour: Straw.

    Nose: Styles aren’t dissimilar – a euphemism – but this one has got a little more of Bunnahabhain’s flowery honeyness, as well as a little more herbal teas (loud and clear lime blossom). With just a drop of water: a bit of humus and green tea. Chlorophyll?

    Mouth (neat): Almost the same whisky as the 1989. Maybe a little more liquorice, maybe not. The saltiness is there as well.

    With water: All good. Green apples, then a growing feeling of honeydew (pine honey) and cough lozenges. Eucalyptus?

    Finish: Good length, good grassiness and sappiness. More honeydew. Comments: I was rather having it at around 85 until I added water. I love honeydew, but this baby doesn’t take its mate’s crown. 87 points.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Very clean, green and fruity, with pear drops and apples, and some brioche richness.

    Palate: Again, very clean – grape and apple are the key flavours here, followed by freshly baked bread and cake mix.

    Finish: Whistle clean, with fruitiness to the fore.
