2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Rich yellow golden colour. Small coarse head. Crystal clear. Peaty whiskey aroma with a bold maltiness. Feels a bit flabby in the mouth as the texture is oily and the carbonation seem to be rather harsh. Lots of residual sugars. The alcohol is also easily noticeable and cuts through the peatiness. Lacks balance. Flavourwise there is lots of oak and peat, and perhaps also a little black pepper and treacle. Finishes with a metallic hop flavour and lots of alcohol. Watery finish.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. pours golden coloured with a small head. Malty and fruity. But feels like a mild beer just added some sort of artifical whisky flavour. Feels wrong.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Seems like the brewers description is more about how nice the bottle is, not how great the beer is. Oh, and the exported bottle has a plastic shrunk neck and thankfully is lacking the LEAD seal. Lead? Are you kidding me? I want my lead!!!
Poured out a deep gold to amber brew with a small fizzy white head that fades instantly. The aroma doesn’t set itself apart from the other whiskey beers I’ve had but still isn’t that bad: sweet and buttery, slight fruit and some oak (a decent amount). Light on taste with a weak bitterness or dryness on the finish. Watered down whiskey flavour and oak which are decent enough but this leaves an almost a "pop" impression. Some malts noticed near the finish and maybe slight alcohol when warmer. Finishes with lingering wood and buttery taste and a reminder that I should stop buying these overpriced bottles of disappointment. It’s better cooler as the aftertaste becomes sourish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium to full bodied, off-dry.
Malty, spicy taste, wood, vanilla, whisky notes, and something reminiscent of Madeira or Sherry. Quite complex. (2009-03-06)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber coloured with low offwhite head. Little toffee and buttery flowers on the nose. The 7% are well hidden which usually is a good thing, but the to sweet caramelbody is rather plain. A little hint of EKG-like hops with flowerlike scents but almost no bitterness at all. Small resembles of lowland whiskey and a little vanilla, but to sum up, a beer soon forgotten.

Shared at Cleveland tasting 3/15 Bottle: Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma, peaty, some sweet malts, smoky. Flavor, more smoky peat malts, some sweetness, woody notes. More like a low proof whisky than a beer, interesting.

0,5 l bottle - shared with gunnfryd and yngwie in Korshavn. Bought in York. Clear amber color, moderate white head. Aroma is sweet malty with woody elements. Flavor is sweet malty, has a kind touch of whisky cask. Nice fruity and dry finish. Good, but I had expected more.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Piedemonte supermarket. Disappointing for the style, unbalanced. Aromas of citrus, nuts, grain and honey. Taste is sweet, with short length. Palate is oily, and slightly watery. Orange, with a thin head.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. I really did not enjoy this beer. The whisky maturation does not seem to have had a positive impact on the beer overall.
