    In the Taiwanese market, its price is unbelievably low.
    It obviously has a good fragrant sherry aroma, as well as a soft taste created in 18 years (can't feel the 43% alcohol stimulation at all!), and a beautiful light sherry finish, but it is regarded as a bundled product of Macallan Low price sale.
    I think this is an excellent whisky that is despised by Taiwanese because of the brand,
    Under the condition that NTD700~800 can be used to buy in large quantities,
    I bought a whole box to keep at home, ready to give to my friends and family to enjoy.

    I think drinkers should put aside the brand myths and let your taste buds tell you aloud that this is a great whisky for everyone at an affordable price!
    The total taste is 84 points, and the price adds 2 points, for a total of 86 points.

      Soft and balanced sherry cask aroma, oak, honey, floral, ripe peaches, toasted nuts, juicy apples, pears. Very rich fragrance.
    • Taste
      86 86
      From pouring into the mouth until swallowing,
      The whole process is completely free from the irritation of alcohol, which is a very comfortable experience.
      I think it should be easy to accept even for people who are not used to drinking spirits.
      The taste is similar to the smell, like eating dark dried fruit and tropical fruit juice.
    • Finish

      The sweet fruit continued and seemed to be slightly smoky.
      For a whisky of this vintage, the ending is too short, which is a pity.

    Fantastic malt and such a bargain. Vatted with Macallan and highland park, like the old edition. This is however lighter, with fewer smoke but this will not damage fine reputation and nice sherry seasoning.

    Colour : gold
    Nose : vanilla, light honey, flowers, ripe plums
    Mouth : it’s all right. Maltier, with roasted nuts, honey
    Finish : short

    The alcohol taste is strong, the entrance is slightly acidic, the aftertaste is very long, bitter and sour, the taste of alcohol.
