Whisky Reviews for Blended Malt Scotch Whisky 2001 TWf

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.44 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 89 points Super Administrator

    Probably intended to seduce Chinese businessmen, 'Ti Girl' is an intriguing combination of Macallan, Highland Park, Glenrothes and Glenturret. Blended at birth and matured for 17 years in a sherry butt, the complex nose unfolds with orange peel, thyme and wood spices. Lime juice, cane sugar and raspberries appear. The palate is sweet and aromatic, emphasizing notes of dates, jelly babies and dark chocolate. Faint hints of peat whisper in the far distance. Emerging mint, cloves and Brazil nuts linger in the dry and spicy finish. Look Edrington, this is whisky!

    Thanks to anthony_holland for gifting the bottle, and to Slàinte Mhath for sharing and re-gifting the bottle itself.
    It's even signed by Mona Ho!

    It's a good whisky so I would have been pleased if I had bought this at it's original price, but asking €1150? C'mon, that's ridiculous!
    Forget the Macallan, just mix up some remains of Highland Park, Glenrothes, Glenturret and print out the Ti-Girl label yourself. It will save you €1000 that you'll never find in the bottle.

      When first opening the bottle I got a distinct feeling of Glenmorangie Original from this one.
      I was obviously wrong, and now that the bottle have been sitting at about 1/3 for a few months I feel it has become richer and deeper.
      Very nice rich sherry notes. Blood orange.
      Quite sophisticated and very pleasant to nose.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Sweet from arrival and all the way through.
      This is a posh pour for those with a sweet tooth.
      Sherry, dark berries, chocolate.
      Very little, or no spice to talk about. Just the right ABV for this kind of dram.
    • Finish
      88 88
      It kind of slides elegantly into the finish.
      The notes of the body just fades and it gets some nuts and a mint leaf at the end.

  3. wbarchive_258409 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasting notes based on blind sampling:

    Conclusion: Mysterious odor, essense of wood and plants, sweetness is not the focus, kinda reminds me of cough syrup, cannot precisely pinpoint, although similar to a Glenmorangie, but chances are high that it is a blend, what the hell is it?
    • Nose
      Stinging scent right off the bat, juniper, herb liquer.
    • Taste
      Apparently strong alcohol immediately dissolves, young oak, woodruff, camomile.
    • Finish
      Short as perceived with the nose, juniper re-appears, hawkbit.

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    Ti Girl, strange name for a whisky.
    As Slainte Mhath says it's to lure Japanese business men like a Siren.
    I liked this very much, a good concoction.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Lots of fresh red apples.
      A nice sherry nose and it's quite potent, stewed fruits, strawberry jam, wine gum sweets, especially the red ones.
      Seen as this is a vatted malt the mix is very good.
    • Taste
      89 89
      This has an unusual flavour to it.
      It's sweet with a kick.
      It feels hot on the back of the throat but it's not unpleasant, quite the opposite.
      It doesn't feel like your normal spice.
      I'm not a fan of overly sweet whisky, this is borderline and, just, just keeps it right.
      Lots of tangy sherry notes.
    • Finish
      89 89
      As I said that kick at the back of the throat stays there for an awfully long time and very slowly melts and fades downward.
