A lovely effervescence is the first thing I notice. That fizzy sensation from the nose translating nicely on the tongue. It’s got depth, coming from oak and dried fruit such as prunes and sultanas and dried apricot, sitting on liquorice and notes of roasted grain. It then goes into a lingering finish of soft oaky bitterness turning increasingly dry with echoes of fruit and chocolate.

This is a whisky I revisit quite regularly, and each time, it does not disappoint. Sure, sometimes, it is really enjoyable; and sometimes, it is just okay. That’s the beauty of it, though; there shouldn’t be that pressure of enjoying it the same amount each time. Hence, I encourage blind tastings. If you take the time and apply a bit of concentration, I think that blind tastings can help teach you a lot about your palate and what you like and dislike. There’s always a chance, of course, that the result will be unsettling. For example, you may really not enjoy a whisky that you previously thought was a firm favourite. In my opinion, though, there’s nothing wrong with that. Your experience of a whisky is subjective and can depend on so many factors, as I have pointed out several times already in other articles. Score: 7/10 Today, however, I want to influence you in a non-influencer way! Blind tastings, I influence you to do more blind tastings! Admittedly, I have only been to a few, but they are probably the best events I have attended. To taste samples and not be swayed by the bottle, and to be able to hear true feelings and opinions of the attendees and see the reactions when the bottles are finally revealed—that is good stuff, my friend! Understandably, there may be pressure for people to guess what is what; but for me, it’s all good fun, with what I hope are delicious whiskies! Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc. We shall make reasonable efforts to inform you of any unavailability due to maintenance or updates.

Whiskybase B.V. is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under no. 52072819. I am not an influencer, or at least try not to be, but I can totally see why people could be influenced by what I have said. It is very easy to follow the crowd; we are sheeples, after all. Same with myself: I will go to tastings or sit with whisky friends where it is easy to be led to think a certain way. To combat this, I tend to ignore everyone until all of my notes are written down. I can be pretty unsociable at these events!

Unless mandatory applicable law provides otherwise, your use of and membership to the Service are exclusively governed by Dutch law. We shall first try to settle any dispute over a dram of whisky. Disputes that cannot be settled over multiple drams of whisky shall be solely submitted to the court of Amsterdam, The Netherlands unless mandatory applicable law provides otherwise. In the mouth: – sweet but not overly so. I get dried jujube dates, goji berries, sultanas and raisins. It is slightly tannic, as I get cloves and that numb feeling on the tongue you get from biting down on one, almost like you’re at the dentist’s. Hints of rubber. Surprisingly thin, but has an oiliness that carries the flavour round the mouth. Dry and oaky, but also creamy, with soothing honey and oats. A bitterness comes through with cassia bark, powdered ginger and burnt toffee sauce. The finish – medium to long, drying on the mouth with a citrus tang and warming to the throat. The tannins also gives the sides of the tongue a slight numbness. The flavour almost disappears but lingers.

One of the most interesting blind tastings I have ever attended was presented by a small independent bottler. It was a 4 dram line-up. After everyone gave his opinion about the first dram, it was disclosed as an Imperial (which nobody would have guessed). Then we went on analysing the next 3 drams on smell, taste and texture. One (1) participant commented that he thought 2 of the 4 drams were from the same distillery. Eventually it was revealed that all 4 were from the same distillery. Not only was it 4 times Imperial, it was 4 times Imperial … from the same cask! This bottler has had the cask bottled in four different ways : once chill-filtered and coloured, once chill-filtered and natural colour, once not filtered and coloured and once not filtered and natural colour. It was an eye-opener for everyone. Surprisingly, the dram that scored highest appeared to have been the filtered and coloured one. There you go.Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. Although this, my second bottle of AnCnoc 18, doesn’t seem to have the life-changing sparkle that my first did, or at least that I remember (let’s face it both whisky and palates change and Talisker 10 doesn’t do it for me like it used to), the character and feeling is still there and I can confirm it’s still right up my alley - a strong seven.
