  1. mmaclean scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of

    this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out.

    He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it

    and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!

  3. kafercup scored this whisky 70 points Newbie

    Weak and nondescript. Best as a mixer.

  4. Drum scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    He was too fleeting and thin for me, he was fine.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, caramel, sweet, cake and sprinkles
    • Taste
      Pepper, mild, quite thin
    • Finish
      Very briefly, first warm some oak and caramel and then it was gone.

  5. Ganga scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Here comes the vanilla and spice but there's this nice refined minty character. Everything is well integrated on the nose. The palate is rather soft, almost watery. Can you have a 90 point nose and a 78 point palette?

  6. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Underrated. It's quite a good bourbon. It's maybe not as sweet and smooth as some easy going bourbon. But it has a good combination of fudge, corn, orange, spice, wood and herbs.

  11. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Tasted blind
    • Nose
      Mild and balanced. Vanilla, sweet fudge, mild wood, soft leather, pleasant fruitiness in the background.
    • Taste
      Unfortunately not as fine as the nose. Sweet - sour, you could call it immature oranges. A decent portion of wood, which is mitigated by the low ABV. Corn, a little herbs, caramel from the charcoal and leather.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, slightly fruity with caramel and leather.
