    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?

    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

    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,

  5. 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.

    • Finish
      81 81

  8. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    A mature, very neat blended malt!
    • Nose
      Sweetness (sherry, caramel), delicate smoke, fruits, fine spiciness;
    • Taste
      balanced, seasoning, gentle smoke, oak;
    • Finish
      medium-length, complex finish;

  9. Moses scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    From the perspective of the PLV, this is a buy recommendation. Also, you lose the impression that it is just a blend. Peppery smoke reminiscent of Talisker. Just noticed :-)
    • Nose
      85 85
      Malty sweet, spicy and leathery with a pleasant smoke. Slight citrus note with light fruits. The vanilla comes through now. Pfeffrig before it starts. Class !
    • Taste
      86 86
      You could say full pipe of pepper and earthy leather. The smoke immediately combines the sweetness with orange peel and malt. Delicious ! This is a dangerously tasty blend with enough complexity for the price. Good choice. A masterpiece.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium to long and very balanced. Slightly bitter and peppery, it is on the palate. Afterwards very pleasantly chocolat sweet and with a small fruit plate he leaves the stage.
