Fary Lochan Efterår

Advent day 17

These reviews are the first ones I attempt and are part of the advent calendar me and my good friend Jim made for each other. These 24 whiskies I’m trying will serve as a “bootcamp” for getting me started on reviewing my whisky. As such I hope the reviews will improve over time. To clarify the process; this is a blind tasting and the post title and category is set after the reveal.

A bit of arrak and bitter almonds. I’m getting notes of marsipan and a hint of salmiak. It has a remarkably light nose with almost no alcohol. that being said there’s still scents to be found, it’s just light.
Score: 22

in contrast to the nose there’s a high amount of burn! I’m getting almonds and the marsipan here as well. And a little bit of honey. There’s a fair amount of peat too but I could be confusing it a bit with the alcoholic burn. After letting it breath for a few minutes and adding a few drops of water it actually balances out alot making it much more pleasant.
Score: 22

Medium long finish. This isn’t flattering but it kind of tastes like honeywater or like cough drops with honey flavour.
Score: 21

A strange whisky, light but flavourful, soft notes and flavours but with a sting. The mouth feel is somewhat oily but not viscous. The colour is a pale yellow reminding me of rapeseed oil.
Score: 22

Total: 87

Personal note: That guess was waaaaaay off! Hah.. But still, not the easiest whisky to blind test. Jim has me on my toes once again!
