    I'm so lucky I live in Taiwan where this is still readily available everywhere for only around $25USD (no joke).

    I'm thinking of stockpiling some. Good idea?

  3. PEATYBOI scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A mellow and extremely easy going blend. Characters of the distiller as stated on the box (Caol Ila, Talisker, Linkwood) are not really apparent. Quite a watered down version of 3 distilleries if I must say so. Nonetheless, a decent blend for daily drinking.

    From the PLV's point of view, this is a buy recommendation. You also lose the impression that it is just a blend. Peppery smoke reminiscent of Talisker. Just noticed :-)
    • Nose
      Malty, sweet, spicy and leathery with a pleasant smoke. Slight citrus note with light fruits. The vanilla is coming through now too. Peppery even before it starts. Class !
    • Taste
      You could say full pipe of pepper and earthy leather. The smoke immediately connects the sweetness with orange peel and malt. Delicious ! It's a dangerously drinkable blend with enough complexity for the price. Good choice. A masterpiece.
    • Finish
      Medium to long and very balanced. It is slightly bitter and peppery on the palate. In the aftermath, very pleasantly chocolatey and sweet and with a small fruit plate, he leaves the stage.
      I like the !

    A very nice blend. Especially for the money. Reminds me a lot of oldschool blends.
    • Nose
      Malty and vanilla, but also very orange sweetness, subliminal ashy smoke, the oranges are very juicy without bitterness, jelly drops
    • Taste
      Malty sweet, mild onset, again the juicy oranges, the oak is there, already spicy, creamy
    • Finish
      The orange sweetness dominates, directly very warming warm, slight bitterness on the palate

    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet notes of prunes, yellow cherries, with cinnamon, pepper, burnt oak.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet, with sharp tones, dried fruits.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Sweet, a little tart, short-lived.

    This whisky matches the color of its label, but not my taste, offering a rather woody and bitter profile.

  9. craide scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I like this older version of the 15 better, although it is not a revelation either. But in terms of taste, nose and palate are balanced.
    Significantly better in the oral cavity. The finish also harmonizes better with the taste. Quite round and balanced.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Sweetish, slightly fruity, slightly smoky, pleasant vanilla, a little caramelized sugar, dried fruit after raisins, plums, appears mint-fresh after a while. Add to that wet wood, herbs,
    • Taste
      83 83
      Tingly hot, smoke is a bit more dominant here. With some fruit like ripe banana, oranges, peaches. Subtle sweetness from honey that is increasingly covered by smoke. A bit of oak spice with chocolate, it is not alcoholic, hardly any bitterness, taste much better.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long finish, some chocolate, coffee, smoke decreases significantly here, the spice also decreases noticeably,
