Jean-Marie Putz

The distillery produces mainly for blends (Dewar). It single malt (at least this 12 y.o. version) is rather disappointing. The impression is that this whisky is rough and its fragrances not very refined.

The nose is marked by slightly bitter smells and by a touch of smoke.
In the palate, the taste is rather pleasant, marked by the malt and a discrete touch of citrus fruits. The whisky remains relatively austere, but not unpleasant. A clear oily impression... This is strange, because during the first tasting, the impression left by this whisky was roughness and dryness... This is probably due to aeration.
The finish is rather short and leaves some malted and citrus memories, but rather flat however.

The second tasting did not take away the feeling of a rough whisky, however the citrus fruit aromas and the sherry hints, combined with a relatively long and slightly smoky finish made me change my first quotation, which seems to be difficult to explain. Probably the mood at the tasting time... This whisky is rather good.

A straight away nose with discrete malty hints and some vague citrus zest smells.
In the palate, a rather flat smooth whisky. Malt and a touch of not so easy to describe bitterness, between orange zest and walnut.
Bitter but rather long finish.
A whisky without character, which is not unpleasant but far from being a must in a whisky collection.
