I have been enjoying whisky for over 25 years, and figured it was about time I learned a lttle more about the intricacies and lexicon of tasting. What better place to learn more, as well as record and share my whisky experiences than WhiskyScores.com!
Nose: Sweet toffee and grassy notes with subtle whisps of iodine
Taste: Smooth soft and subtle to start, toffee and tobacco that melts into a light grassy/floral bouquet. Smooth throughout its journey, with a sweet caramel-chocolate and leather finish
Nicelybalanced combination of sweet and spicy on the nose with tobacco and licorice root, black pepper, vanilla and iodine.
Very smooth and subtle and sweet and oily initially, complex in its spiciness and peppery warmth with hints of vanilla
Warm and sutle, but lingering spicy finish.
Nose: spicy sweet caramel, fresh grass with a hint of licorice
Palate: sweet and full-flavoured with grassy notes. Caramel quickly followed by spices and onion. Finish is spicy, but smooth, long and lingering.
Smoky, sweet, oily tar with a bit of pepper on the nose. And it tastes much the same, but it tastes good (go figure!?) Smoky, peaty, but relatively smooth on the tongue, viscous and oily in texture with a long sweet cola-like finish.
With a bit of water
Nose: strong ripe chees, caramel apples, and, oh yes, peat!
Taste: wonderfully smooth and sweet despite a strong peatiness, some slightly spiced/peppered caramel throughout, lingering mild finish
Spiced caramel and vanilla, sweet and spicy with some smoky notes on the nose.
Smooth and soft with a zesty lingering finish. Full body, but not at all imposing. Spice, cinnamon with a pleasant caramel sweetness.
Dry sod and iodine on the nose. Little presence on the tongue, which seems to say "hi" in the middle then offers a long, warm, dry, earthy and tingly finish at the back. A bit of water opens honey and herbal/floral on the nose and a fuller body and less dry on the tongue.
