  1. MGHOW did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Not a single written review? Baahh...Just a load of flippers boosting this overpriced blend. Glad I didn't get on this hype train.

    Already in the nose you have a breathtaking / beguiling Duftpotpourri.
    This noble drop is always consistent and exciting, as well as mysterious profound and unfortunately also pleasantly tasty.

    @MGHOW: If you have not got any bottle, or sample of it, don`t talk and don`t be jealous that others have got one bottle and you don`t. Thats life! = ;-)

      Clearly: Mon Cheri Praline: Cherry in a sweet liqueur covered in dark chocolate, acacia honey, light smoke, milk chocolate, a little bit sprightly, eggnog, fruity, floral, fresh almond speculum, stone pine
    • Taste
      92 92
      subtle but clearly perceptible sweetness, a lot of sherry, mildness and softness, medium oak bitterness, then builds a burning on which briefly becomes almost impetuous as the high sea, then subsides. The whiskey is always full of spice and harmony. The rearing of the alcohol in the taste forms an interesting tension.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Short mentholic, then very long mild sweet harmonious finish with subtle oak bitterness and barely noticeable smoke.

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very marketable name with loads of fake scores. Collectors and flippers abound. How's the actual whisky?

      Good start. Sweet and waxy, with loads of vanilla. Coca Cola Vanilla? Sure, why not. Ripe pears, Bartlett and Korean types.

      Very watery entry. Seriously. Why is it so watery? Once you chew on it, then you get some hints of the Clynelish waxiness and white fruits. There is some peat from Caol Ila, but not much. Clynelish definitely predominates here, just like the nose. But again, why is this so weak?
    • Finish

      Short.

      Really, this whisky is not bad and super quaffable but seriously????!!!! $500 retail??? Someone is laughing ALLLLL the way to the bank. Just buy a well-aged Clynelish for $250 and add a few drops of Caol Ila. You'll spend half the price of this or less for something of better quality. You're very welcome.

  4. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful nose and that's it ... behind it is a big disappointment, I expected so much more. It is clearly overvalued.
    Too expensive for what it is !
    • Nose
      Pretty peat that fades with time. Fruit compote (orange, peach, apricot ...).
      There is also wax, precious wood, honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Sweet spices, nice punch, woody with a slight bitterness and an embarrassing citric side.
    • Finish
      Average length on spices and a sweet smoke. There is green wood and bitterness.

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    18 for a blended!
    • Nose
      salt, sweet spices, then fine peat
      yellow fruits stewed with a vanilla background
      wax, fat that stays in the nostrils
      gingerbread too
      it's fine, good mix!
    • Taste
      the maritime side comes out with dry peat
      sodden wood occurs
      the aqueous wax, a little encaustic there with fruits cooked but not macerated, almost fresh, just crushed, peach, a little mandarin and lemon
      spices that amplify the sensation in the mouth without more.
      fresh ground almonds and vanilla and some dried herbs
    • Finish
      quite long with a fine smoke, a little candied citrus and the humid woody
      a little orange and vanilla.
