Obviously you are not going to get that Whiskey taste... but this one is odd. Bearable in Dry Ginger with ice. Makes an Irish style coffee taste of Vanilla ? May work for you as a mixer. Was worth a try, but not again.
Very nice. Nice sweet front flavor, followed by fragrant whiskey flavor, then a ramy nice smooth warmth that lingers. Great AF Scotch.
I put coke and lemom in it only because it was quite strong drinking it neat but the lemom balances the whisky
A very nice drop, I actually felt like I was having an adults only drink. Nice to know you can enjoy a drink without alcohol.
It’s curious how close this gets to the full bodied warmth of a full Alc whiskey. The herbs and spices go incredibly well with dry ginger ale.
This is a curious concoction. It looks like a Scotch, and certainly passes for one in the glass, but the flavour is downright strange and takes some getting used to. It tastes like an experiment in progress. I didn't dislike it, but I doubt I'd drink in on ice again. Perhaps with a dash of soda, or for those who used to corrupt their whiskies with cola?
I have tried some white wines and beer and they have all been quite good. I bought this out of curiosity but unfortunately it didn’t hit the mark at all.
I love whisky; may be a little too much I am encouraged by this product. A non-alcoholic whisky reminiscent spirit verging on the real thing must be almost impossible; but Glen Dochus does go a long way towards achieving it. I was pessimistic, but really looking forward to tying Glen Dochus. I have been looking and trying myself for a long time with truly shocking results. Imitating a good scotch must be more a magic than chemistry. I enjoy the subtleties of a good whisky but in this instance many of the subtleties that may be there are overwhelmed by the pungency of the burnt caramels and sickliness of the vanillas both of which are well overdone. In this instance, less is definitely more. While the introduction to this drink may be a punch in the nose and serve as good warning for what lays ahead, those who do venture forward, after the initial “erk what’s that?” reaction, should finally detect a lingering toasty malt flavour that reminded me of malted milk at my grandmothers house as a kid. There is a lot to be said for this spirit. I can only imagine how much work has gone into creating it. The recipe is definitely on the right path. It is also a long way towards compensating for the thin atmosphere curse that plagues no alcohol spirits. I would personally like to see some oatmeal porridge flavours incorporated to balance out the salty “seaweedy” flavours I noticed when I blended GD with an all-purpose quaffing scotch blend, in a rough 50:50 ratio, the repelling up- front nose diminished and the result was a very drinkable instance, a little reminiscent of a Smokey Speyside finished in a cherry cask. It was not near perfect but the improvement to the original whisky was notable. There is some good stuff in this spirit, but you just can’t taste it. This blend is not yet ready, but with a lighter hand, patience, time and understanding of all stakeholders, a good non-alcoholic spirit it the vane of a scotch whisky will be developed. I would personally prefer this to be blended with a scotch to become a low alcohol scotch blend or whatever the Scottish Scotch description laws permit. That is a product I would buy.
I tried this Glen Dochus recently and based on my experience with zero beers, I was quite looking forward to it. However, it tastes pretty **** and the smell can make you faint !! I had one ‘drink’ and the rest of it is a complete waste of money :-(
