Ein kleiner Ausschnitt aus dieser Verkostung:


"Colour: pine wood


On the nose: light and buttery, a vanilla cream, approachable and not overly complex. A twist of lemon, white chocolate and fruit sweetness. A layer of smoke. Poached pears provide the fruit dimension, Scotch pancakes a fun element and sugar cubes more sweetness. Water levels the sweetness and brings out more of the wood influence making it less than welcome.


In the mouth: interesting in a single word. It starts out as expected and then veers off in a different direction towards palm sugar. Buttery again, a subdued greenness with Kiwi fruits, olives and more of those pancakes. A gentle caress from the wood. Not the most active of casks but there’s an enjoyable chemistry here. Water reveals pear drops and juicy fruit chewing gum – a fun whisky!


Conclusions

A good solid drinkable whisky that you could polish off in rapid fashion. At this young age, there’s just enough symmetry between the spirit and the cask to enjoy across a bottle. A tasty, revitalising and engaging drop. Nothing fancy or benign and perfectly suited to the realm of Cadenhead’s value.


Score: 6/10"


Während dieses Review noch durchaus positiv klingt, sieht es bei Serge Valentin von Whiskyfun.com schon ganz anders aus. Das gesamte Review findet ihr hier.

Dort bekommt der Whisky nur 69 Punkte und unter anderem diese Tasting Notes:

"Nose: ooh, turnips and Jerusalem artichokes! Some chalk as well, plaster, old magazines, and just plain Breton artichokes. In truth, this could be better… [...] Mouth (neat):[...] Barley syrup. Not nice, but kind of agreeable. [...] Finish: long and a little painful again. Bitter vegetables, mashes, stale pepper, cardboard… Comments: no, I think this is too hard."

Also, wer schauen mag ob er oder sie härter ist als Serge Valentin, bzw. ob der Geschmack eher dem von Jason (MALT) entspricht, kann hier eine Flasche erwerben.
