  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I really would like to know what's in this blend. I can't stand it that it's right on the edge of my mind..
    • Nose
      This has a pleasant and very familiar nose. I just can't get the name with it though. It is well matured, fresh, clean, sweet and with a wee sourness to it. It's very lively and playful on the nose upon arrival with a focus on a rather intense fruitiness. I get red berries, apricot and pleasant mild spices from it. After a while and with some hand warmth it develops more of it's darker smells like chocolate and dried fruits. It does have a shy dusty layer on the nose.
    • Taste
      It has a nice thick and waxy body. It's very gentle and accessible. Red fruit in like strawberry and raspberry, milk chocolate and mild spices in like vanilla and a whiff of clove and with a fresh grain-like note to it. Dried herbs and toasted oak as well. A very easy going and balanced palate with beautiful old characteristics.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long and gives mild spices, and again a rather intense fruitiness, soft red fruits and lingering oak influences.

      Delicate is the right word for this whisky. Age gave it whisky a nice body, despite it's 42.7% ABV. An interesting blend for an even more fair price.

    The nose is very interesting with some rich aroma's, but the taste and finish disappoint a little actually, by far not as interesting and versatile. Pretty pale too. Not worth the money.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity, dark red fruits, prunes. Licorice, oily as well. Stewed pears. Ripe fruits. Not too much alcohol. Apple sirup.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pretty smooth with a tingling mouthfeel on the tongue. Licorice, some honey, a bit of prunes. A little pale though.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Smooth, some red fruit, licorice, prunes. Pretty short actually. Dies out way too soon.
