Newmake from Speyside – 50%
My Tasting Notes:
Nose: A strong pear aroma joined by a bit of malt and a slight floral note.
Palate: Peppered attack, then quite sweet, pears, more pears and malt
Finish: Very long, fruity and sweet
Overall: You would not beleive that this is supposed to become whisky once. It reminds more of a pear eau de vie than anything else. Quite enjoyable in its own right though, but with a solid price tag.
Score: 76/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
