Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Fragrant, honeyed and sweet, with ripe apricots, honey and sweet white chocolate.

    • Palate

      Mint toffee, caramelised oranges and baked apricot lead to honeycomb, almonds and dates.

    • Finish

      Rich and syrupy, with caramelised citrus and pears fading to fudge and mint.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Light gold.

    • Nose

      Fragrant, honeyed and sweet. Some ripe apricots, mead-like, and a curious minerally/flinty note, followed by some sweet white chocolate.

    • Taste

      An initial burst of mint toffee, with baked fruits such as caramelised oranges and apricots, lots of honeycomb, almonds and dates.

    • Finish

      A rich, syrupy aftertaste, with more caramelised citrus and pears, some creamy fudge, but always an intriguing mentholic/eucalyptus sensation in the background.

  • Tasting notes by Stuart Peskett

    • Nose

      Rich, sweet notes of buttered toast and popcorn, along with brioche and milk chocolate, then fruitier notes of cherry, strawberry and dried fruit.

    • Palate

      Spicier on the palate, with cinnamon, clove and violets. Roasted almonds, more milk chocolate and candied orange arrive, along with hints of red fruits. A drop of water brings out more fruity and floral notes.

    • Finish

      The rich spiciness lingers.

    • Comment

      Much richer than The Original, Bacalta ramps up the toasty spiciness. The 46% ABV is another plus, giving a satisfying mouthfeel.

    It's alright, but it's got a lot of unstructured and flat young spirit which makes it taste a little like a flavourful malt diluted with vodka. Another overpriced NAS..... Get your age statement whiskies while you can folks.

    Marco Righetti,

    I'm new to the whisky tasting notes far I either like or don't like.....and this bacalta I really like!!!! I have a sweet palate and have learned to go by style than you can see it has a 5 star for sweetness and that's what you go by....rather than the sweet characters of Tomatin tawny port 14 year old....which i definitely don't like!!

    Not a great whisky at all. A lot of burn for something this expensive.

    Lovely apricot, almond and honey flavors. This one is not to be missed.
