WDTS2014-01 75/100
The colour is gold to amber. The nose is sweet, slightly peaty with a hint of sugared butter flavored with cognac.
The taste is sweet, smoky with a touch of madeira, and the final is long, sweet and reminiscences of raisin Christmas pudding.
What a program... .
That'll take some doing....
Personal Comment
No wonder that Captain Haddock is always in a bad mood. What a strange whisky, with strong malted smells. An uncategorizable bottle. A relatively long finish lets a very vague taste in the mouth. This whisky should be exclusively reserved to "tintinophiles", because it does not add anything to the whisky science, while all Tintin's adepts remain a drunken Bobby, after having drunken this beverage leaking out of this tank wagon with a certain nostalgia.
60/100
A second tasting just confirmed the bad memory left by this whisky which reinforce those who claim hating whisky... The first impression was rather pleasant, even if it was rather flat, but while going along the taste seems to worsen, and the finish (which is unfortunately rather long) does not help matters....

Commentaire de Mapi
straw-colored

Nose open, very fruity with a nice freshness. It then evolves on white fruits. Then something like turpentine appears with its pine sap side.

Mouth, the texture is very light, almost watery. Still that freshness. An aniseed peak appears followed by cardamom and some vetiver side.

Final. Good length. soft and delicate.

Very aromatic whisky . Pleasant. A little more material would have been welcome.

Commentaire de Piksi
Nose: Very pastry. Reminds me of a cream cake style Paris-Brest. Malted barley. Varnish.

Taste: Vanilla, like the nose with additional notes of pancake batter. It is drunk easily (that is velvety), just lacks a bit of power alcohol level.

Finale: Fairly short, there's not much.

Overall Comment: This is very easy to drink. Just lacks a little power and complexity to be excellent. It has a little side "old school" whisky.

Commentaire de NovA
Nose: Butter, Acid, Honey in Beeswax, Herbs, Green Apple, Lime, Flowery (Nectar), Menthol, Alcohol is not noticeable,

Palate: very delicate mouth feel, malty, lemon, some herbs, liquid warm butter.

Finish: mild, some alcohol/warm, buttery and malty
No water added,because I think its no cask strength or high proof.

Overall: Very delicate dram. At first acid notes dominated, but with some time they went, and an enjoyable dram was exposed.

Commentaire de Singlemalt71
Nose: Directly sweet fruity tones (like apples and tropical fruit) combined with grain products (biscuit and nuts) and spiciness. Especially these spiciness develops more and more in the nose, but also with some vanilla and wood tones through it.

Taste: Warm sweet tones followed by some spiciness and some bitterness as well (but not that much...very good).

Finish: Medium long, spicy, but also nutty.

Commentaire de Loic43
Nose: roasted hazelnuts, cocoa, caramel, coffee, white fruit (peach, pear), grape, tropical fruit. A basket of fresh and dried fruit.

Taste: Very little presence of alcohol, would it be reduced? dried fruits, cocoa, white fruits, exotic fruits.
Adding water does not affect the balance.

Finale: short on nuts.

Comment: a nice malt.

Commentaire de Alex Kooby
We are here on a very young whisky apparently. Vanilla, apple juice. Some discreet vegetal notes.
Taste: light texture, very fresh and fruity. Vanilla, pears. Very fruity. Whisky clearly reduced below 43%, which makes it very easy to drink.
Finale: Pretty short with apricot back mouth. Vanilla, "petit suissse" banana :)

Commentaire de Jean-Marc
Nose: plastic, burnt rubber;
Palate: well above the nose, sweet, white fruit, unfortunately quite linear, lacks a bit of punch (perhaps a question of line-up?)
Finale: short on the white flesh fruit, nectarine

Commentaire de Arno
Nose: astringent and bitter notes of young wood, which give a soothing white "chardonnay" wine side. In addition, notes of green apple, spices (anise, clove), cinnamon and stewed fruit, but arranged in a way that reminds me of a scented candle. Lack of warmth and finesse.
Taste: very bland beginning with synthetic fragrances (scented candles), hot spices and prolonged bitterness and slightly astringent on rotten cork-wood tone). I believed detect some similarities with a dry white wine. Some notes of anise and salt. A somewhat simple bouquet.
Finale: nuts and anise
Conclusion: reminds me of a pretty young whiskey, green, with its synthetic notes. Hogshead? Lack of heat demand to refine. However, a "white wine" side that I liked in some ways.s.

Commentaire de Flonews
Nose : At the opening , ester and menthol. Not really engaging at first. After aeration , the nose becomes more friendly but still very quiet on the grain and hay with little notes of white fruit that we must seek .

mouth strangely calm and neutral. A slight development on the chocolate, butter and then finally a hint of wood. Over time, the sweet notes are more pronounced but have some notes on the nose disrupt the scene with a background of young alcohol.

final : quite short and very sweet . Disappears on a slight hint of butter

A strange whisky and uninviting in the first moments . The nose is really not pleasant . It opens with the time and has a mouth without any aggression. It does not change , however, to very marked notes. The lack of power demand attention, but all is not bad . More maturity is needed for this drink took off.

Commentaire de Alexandre
The nose offers a beautiful fresh citrus (oranges), exotic fruit and minerality. However it lacks terribly personality and presence. There are also some yellow fruits and a little paper pulp, making it more earthy and austere, without more expression.

The palate confirms the nose is relatively powerful and without much personality. We have a mix of exotic fruit flavors pastry, also peppers. Over time come some marine aspects, but the whole remains discreet.

The finish is medium length, relatively fresh, with citrus, hazelnuts and a hint of chocolate.

In conclusion, a nice whisky but lacking relief.

Commentaire de Samhain
Colour: dark straw
Nose: some Sandalwood and red fruits
Palate: this one comes a little weak on the palate, Sandalwood and red fruits followed by mineral notes and some ashes

The finish is medium long with a hint of chocolate. This is a nice malt, drinkable but not really impressive for me.

Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: Brine, pickles, mustard, spices. As a salad dressing ...
Taste: slightly sweet, a little aqueous and salt
Finale: Average

Comments: A weird combo in my opinion ... No major defects but the flavors did not delight me ...

Commentaire de Applecross
Nose: Hidden aromas, a secretive whisky. Very little alcohol. Starting on cereals and cooked apples. Somehow artificial.
Light tobacco at the end.

Palate: Sweet mouth, again very little alcohol! I assume it is not far beyond 40%. A bit boring, nevertheless a straight malt
Later hints of vanilla.

Finish: Medium to long finish? Medium? Difficult to judge, as the whisky is finally lacking some alcoholic strength
However, tannins and vanilla sweetness, marshmallows

Commentaire de Amor57
The first nose reveals wood and excessive tannins. The fruitiness is distant, bile, moldy. It is not engaging at all. After aeration, lemon zest - tiny, the zest - covers dried grass, so more air than lemon. Great bitterness. A very long aeration gives nothing more despite disappointed hopes. On the palate, attack is on the pear and alcohol pouring in torrents. Sugar and even pear, nothing else. The final, of short length has a hint of licorice, a hint of vanilla, but the two go off fast enough.
A whisky that I will not try again to taste.

Commentaire de Jeep
Nose: A pastry nose, hints of fruit cake, cereal, malt. Becomes more spring after aeration with fruity and floral notes. The nose is not intense, rather recessed, and although this is not an aromatic that I usually enjoy, here it goes.
Taste: Uh ... what's that? In a platitude ... A little malt, cereal, fruit may be young but ... well nothing actually, no texture, no flavor, no presence ... no
Finale: Non-existent on very light notes of yellow fruits
Comment: Mouth without any interest. Nose nose not great, far from it, is the highlight of this water, uh sorry whisky.

Commentaire de Dekyriel
Colour: Gold

Nose: Apples, fresh and green. Candy sugar, fairly appetizing. Evolves toward peaches and apricots, with a touch of sulphur, butyric acid, fresh dough. This seems like a refill sherry cask that hasn't given its best.

Mouth: Quite watery and soapy. Tastes a bit like that mold you'd find in your attic, not that I've tried it myself but you know what I mean. Cruel lack of body and fairly sour all in all. Finally spared some marzipan fortunately.

Finish: Bitter, on citrus zest. Very woody and herbaceous. Reminded me of quinine, yes, like in Schweppes.

Comment: Globally unpleasant. I had no pleasure with this one at all unfortunately.

Commentaire de Peb
Color: gold

Nose: very strong smell of sulfur, scraper matches, cooking water, meat gravy nose, smell of green vegetables and hops. It is not a priori a nose that attracts me.

Taste: mild, marked by the sulfur side, a lot of salt and alcohol developing into ether. It is not very complex ... It is aqueous (dilution must be quite severe).

Finish: rather short. However the final brings some fruit. It progresses to a certain bitterness. Hint of pepper thus appears that a little salt.

Comment: this is really not my type of whisky. Nothing on the nose, I see a profile that I hardly identify. It is not very complex and too watery. Sulfur is truly present in the nose. Tasted without water because the dilution was already marked. The second pass confirms this profile: wet barley macerated ... How old is this whisky? It must be very young ... without seeing it, I thought about a new make...

Commentaire de Jmputz
Colour: Old gold
Strong scent between burning rubber and yeast appear immediately. This nose, far from being discreet is rather monolithic and without any fantasy.
The palate is syrupy, with hints of toffee, catchy. Just as monolithic as the nose, with an unpleasantly more disgusting character here.
The finish is quite long and does not provide a positive note in this whole ..

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Pale amber.
Nose: Hardly bearable. Very heady aromas of low-end industrial candied angelica chunks from a low-end industrial candied-fruits cake. The same repulsive feeling than when accidently munching a juniper berry in a sauerkraut.
Mouth: The same, but flat and weak (40% ?). Stale beer. Salted water. Some cheap toffee too. And still this gin-like flavours.
Finish: Stale Vichy water, with a very salty aftertaste.
Comment: Is this really a Scotch single malt? Tastes more like a low-end blend or a soulless "foreign" marketing attempt. Just bad.

Commentaire de Mathieutaz13
nose:
Very young at the opening that oscillates between porridge and bad fruit alcohol ... nothing very engaging!
Maybe a young grain?
No change with aeration it still does not appeal me!

palate:
The nose was more expressive because we really wonder where the aromas!
One has the impression of something to drink diluted to the extreme (below 40 ° even)

Conclusion:
No matter, no length, no interest!

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Very pale, oily, vinho verde Nose: Very interesting and appealing for such a young spirit: At first very few peat but much of overripe fruit. Below strong aromes of the oak cask together with deep malty flavors.
Palate: Milk chocolate pralines filled with dried fruits and nuts. Surprising soft and flattering and finally, peat shows up beneath all the other impressions.
Finish: Long and soft, the peat leaving the very longest traces.
Concl: A very surprising expression: young and so vehement, that there must be some problems with the balance. A bottle reminding of Cptn. Haddock, strong but lovable.

Personal Comment
Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Bright brass (colour added).
Nose: Strange and funny. Hefty peat combined with a remarkable cheap rubber impression. Strange sweet aromes like rotten apples, mildew on a pineapple, dried tomatoes, mixed pickles (dill and honey), also wet newpapers show up besides. The peat appears not in a smoky, but in some strange (I cannot think of another word...) musty and beefy way. The fruity note here reminds strongly of the cheap Loch Lomond bottles (no age) available in most German Supermarkets, it’s the same low wines smell.
Taste: Very dry aperetif, but this is more fun than the nose suggests: Black pepper, even some dried hot chillies, peppered soft cheese spread and rancid butter. The low wine nose seems to be forgotten, but there is heavy sweet maple syrup, leather and oriental shisha tobacco and cold cigarette ash altogether rather far out of harmony.
Finish: Not on the unpleasant side, prickly, well peppered and sugary but fading quickly.
Conc.: This low priced whisky means a lot of fun to the open minded malt lover, but is far from being a fine dram. The people at Loch Lomond should take a drive to Campbeltown to their daughter distillery at Glen Scotia, over there they know very well how to bind the most different notes and aromes to a very beautiful bouquet of tastes.
