    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.

  4. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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

  5. NXI scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

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

  7. 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,
