  1. JimJaws scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not exciting but not expensive for a 14 year old. Very good to drink. Classic malt from Diageo and therefore found in almost every whisky pub.

  4. diamond2000 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: dry grain, milk caramel, vanilla, honey, overripe pear, soda "cream-soda", compost from autumn foliage, dry boards, plywood, phantom smoke from burning wood, then appears and goes away. The aroma is quite fresh, sea: mussels, menthol freshness, fabric softener, some minerals.

    Taste: spicy spices, malt sweetness, boiled condensed milk, slightly bitter citrus peel, wood, barely perceptible smoke, burning, dried ginger.

    Finish: spices, decaying sweetness, ginger, some kind of chemical note of drying oil, cellulose, medium length, delicate.

    Rating: 85

    Bottom line: another very good molt from the highlands from Diadzheo, very fresh, with coastal notes, such an average version of Scotch whisky, in which each of the regions is a little bit ... Fortress 43 does not spoil anything, I think the molt is as high as level as their own Kleelish 14 and Dalvini 15.
