Tasting Notes by Words of Whisky (Thijs Klaverstijn) - score 90 points

Nose: Somewhat funky and off-beat at first, on the same sour/copper coin spectrum that Ben Nevis sometimes sits on. Whiffs of rhubarb as well as farmy notes, complemented by creamy vanilla, peeled apple parts and pear. It has a distinct note of rye bread and just a touch of aniseed, as well as a grassy bitterness.

Taste: This is where the Littlemill comparison makes much more sense. There’s even a cardboard note. It’s fruity (whiffs of mango and grapefruit), sweet and frankly very delicious, but also slightly spicy and with a touch of menthol tobacco. Somewhat grassy and with a touch of tarragon.

Finish: Old oak and a tad dry yet fruity and herbacious.

The nose and palate are worlds apart, but the latter sits somewhere between Littlemill and those really fruity late 1980s Irish malt whiskies. That’s a huge compliment. Peculiar at times and utterly moreish at once. Very unique and a bit of a Janus whisky, this Old Rhoshdu from the WhiskyNerds.
