Reviews for PUNI ALBA
Interesting, but deserves better cask finish.
Nose: Perhaps dried apples, a bit of salt, almonds, some caramel/honey sweetness. Not too much flavors from the cask (no vanilla sweetness from the oak, not fruity notes from the sherry); my guess was that beer casks have been used (I was wrong, but I still think that they do not use good casks).
Palate: Not too bad, but weaker than the nose, with a unpleasant bitter note; my guess was that they may well have used rye (I was partially right, but lucky I admit).
I would say that it is not a bad whisky, but not a very good one neither; I my opinion, they need better casks. But it has its own distinctive taste, and is otherwise well done; for these reasons, it may be worth giving it a try.

Four stars not two - my mistake
As a summary of MofM’s excellent tasting notes, how about liquorice on the nose? In any case, I really like this -interesting and balanced all the way.

OK as a novel one to try
Really not sure about this. Yes, it is a very professionally made malt, but I would far to be the after taste as that of a rubber band rather than the vanilla notes described.

I tested this at an even of malt whiskey (note the ey spa.ling ad none was a Scotch) which included an excellent Taiwan whiskey, and it definitely was the fourth put of the four tried (Taiwan, Japan, Italy and England, Cotswold),

Still worth a try...
