This last Christmas I got a bottle of DYC 8 años as a present and it haven’t been till now that I have found a chance of opening it.
Although DYC is the best selling ( even over Scotch whiskies ) whisky on Spain I haven’t had many chances of tasting it ( shame on me! ). It is really hard to find samples of it and as most of you know I have kinda of a logistic problem at home… so no more open full bottles… well, nevermind, I got this one as a present and I thougth it really deserves to be opened.
“Interesting. More woody character than the standard DYC with more spice aromas. Just a bit light for my taste but quite interesting”
This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (82): average. honey, vanilla, spices, citrus. Quite light but with a clean delicious honey aroma.
Palate (83): light, smooth. honey, citrus, vanilla, wood, spices, cinnamon.
Finish (83): short. honey, wood, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this DYC 8 years old with 83 points over 100.
Quite a surprise. More complex than the standard DYC whisky with more defined notes of vanilla and wood. Not bad at all for a whisky that cost around £7.
