  1. WantsWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The story goes that this is a blend between Glenrothes, Tamdhu and Highland Park. Did taste it and I was really stunned by the quality price ratio. For me a no brainer!!!

    Not overly complex but pretty balanced and very drinkable - overall quite delicious!

      Milk chocolate galore, some toffee, brown sugar, dried dates, nutmeg, some spices, probably xmas spice, whiffs of sherry wood - great!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very creamy, little punchy, good sweetness, little nutty, more truck loads of milk chocolate, spices, sherry wood, hints of leather, cooked fruits, orange peel - very good!

      Medium long, warm, spicy, more orange peel, some gingerbread

  3. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It was quite a fast decision for me and my friends to share this one together. As I put my nose above the glass I immediately get confirmed we made a good choice. This creamy fellow is a very pleasant dram from start to finish. It is not to complex neither it is to simple. It’s right in between. It’s accessible, wel matured and brings a decent amount of flavors to the table.
    • Nose
      Initially this starts as a strong flavorful nose. After giving it some time and warmth it eases down a bit and gets rather closed. A drop of water and it opens up again. Creamy is the word. Milk cream like in those ‘kinder’ chocolate bars. Also vanilla cream, raisins and fruitiness which I can’t specify very easy.
    • Taste
      Creamy and smooth. Well rounded and balanced. Sweet and a tad bitterness. Again quite some creamy stuff on the palate but also a big hit of orange juice. Later on pleasant mild spices Appear
    • Finish
      The finish is long and pleasant. At first it gives dried red fruits and raisins. Further down the line a very pleasant layer of wood influences and Arabic spices appear. Again it’s sweet and a tad bitter.

      Highly recommended and well made blended malt!

    Tasting notes based on blind sampling:

    Conclusion: Love it! Very similar to a bottling by Brühler Whiskyhaus, albeit not as intense. Hence: Sherry. Not too young, not too old. Maybe 15 years. Maybe not a blend. Caol Ila with Sherry finish? Not sure!
    • Nose
      97 97
      Very slight hint of alcohol, cane sugar, christmas cookie, baked apple, extremely alluring and high expectations of sweetness! Waiting for 15 minutes until I take a sip.
      Taste: Jesus! Marshmallow army rolling in, banana somewhere in the corner of the mouth, now somewhat bubble gum.

    • Finish
      94 94
      Medium finish, but definitely longer than 133366. Complex! Mix of different notes of sweetness - Cherry, strawberry, honey.

    Well balanced and bang for bucks, highly dangerous as I can finish half bottle in one night without knowing..

    Did do a bottleshare with friends on this one
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sherried, dried red fruits, some almonds and a touch of cream and a red berry saus on a vanilla cake.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Well rounded arrival. Creamy texture. Sweet and sherried. Quite well blended I must say. It is soft and not very outspoken, but quite well made.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length. Again very soft and mellow. Quite fruity and a touch of cream.

  10. RobbievdB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice blended malt. Couldn’t tell which profile dominates but this is one tasty blend, full of sweetness like milk chocolate, sugared orange candy, caramel cappuccino, raisins and dates, vanilla sauces. But also some cinnamon and nutmeg aromas pop up in the finish together with some woodspices. Perfectly drinkable at 46,6 abv.
