Vanilla, caramel and pear on the nose, taste is smooth, creamy and spicy with an underlying sweetness. Spicy, almost bitter finish. Smells great, tastes ok, finish is underwhelming. Not too impressed at this price point.
Would drink again. Disagree with tasting notes: maple is not dominant and is on the back end. Really light for a 10yr old but still smooth
Don’t like the strong butterscotch taste. It’s like eating butterscotch that doesn’t have any sweetness. Dry and don’t care for the after taste. I’m also getting an undertone of anchovies !
Sweet, fruity, little bit of bite
Great. Fruity, has a little bite to it, sweet
I was expecting a little bit more sweetness on the nose after looking at the flavor spiral, but I got a little bit of the sweetness at first taste. However, a wave of spiciness comes over and drowns out the other flavors. I just couldn't make out much of the other flavors due to its harshness. With that being said, I think its finish was nice and could somewhat get a little more sweetness through that. Overall, the spiciness was just too distracting for me to get much of any other flavor to come out.
Smooth and crisp
A great whisky with a lingering spicy aftertaste that stays with you
Sharp smell, tastes like maple syrup, slight smokey taste and smell, tastes like a hazelnut creamer for coffee.
Eh. Not for me. I can see the appeal though
Really enjoy the maple, vanilla, butterscotch combo.
Incredibly strong spicy nose that doesn’t relent. No balance.
Smoky. Wish they would make more scotch in the future
This tastes terrible
Very nice. Good, sweet maple spice flavor with a nice maple syrup finish. I want this for breakfast!
It is an outstanding, rich, Australian Single Malt Whisky with a sweet birth, while an easy & creamy life, leads to a spicy death of medium length.
Just really was not happy with this. Rough all around.
Fruity nose but very harsh spice. Almost a hint of coffee. Probably get the same flavor with some turpentine and espresso. Seems like the Australians got the distillation part figured out but the math mash and maturation seem to be misunderstood.
Best drunk while drunk I’d imagine. I kinda pick up some maple caramel, but it’s beat by the rubber taste that lingers in the aftertaste.
The smell of pears is so strong, it's hard to make out any of the other aromatics; however, husband and I both agree there's a sweet marshmallow-like aroma as well. I can't taste much due to mainly tasting alcohol, but there are flavors of honey and spice. Husband says it tastes dinstinctly of circus peanuts (aka artificial banana).
Tastes like fermented bran flakes. Hard pass.
Not the best straight up as a sipper, had an off-putting flavor to it. Seems like it needed to mature for a bit longer. I had some with a plate of charcuterie and it went well with that, but will be passing on this juice, don’t see myself getting a bottle at any point.
This one is very "cereal-forward" in that I smell and taste the malted barley nearly immediately and in a big way throughout. This one is unique in my somewhat limited experience and I can definitely see why many people are not fans: the flavors are unexpected in a whisky. I may not buy it again, but it is definitely one to try and share if you want to bring something very different to the table.
That's gonna be a no for me, dawg...
Interesting. Spicy, sweet, and smokey. Would be excellent with food, I'm thinking a dish with a tomato sauce, or maybe a spicy Cajun pasta
Nose: Fresh fruit, cereal, vanilla, and a bit of coconut.
Palate: Creamy and malty, with a medicinal palate, but not unpleasant. This is a taste, mmm, taste again, hmmm, taste again. It keeps bringing you back.
Finish: Short to medium finish. A little spice and citrus on the finish.
Overall interesting dram, maybe not one I would buy, but glad I tasted.
I got a lot of smoke and sweet. Not particularly balanced well. Not for my taste.
