  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    25% grain, 75% malt

    A nose "corpulent" for a blend. A lot of presence. Beautiful notes of palpable sherry and also marked coconut that betrays the presence of grain. Thick texture, the grain providing flexibility. Not super complex, but very pleasant and easy to drink.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Whiskey n ° 1869

    I do not have to

      Orange chocolate, dry oak, after the second sip the amount of grain comes through perceptibly
    • Finish
      very short and woody with slightly bitter notes
