10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.07 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Elegantly complex. Fine aged oaks and nutty oil, delicious biscuity
    creamines and fresh citrus interplay. Water drawn out more goodies,
    mineral with sprinkle of salts, warm sour dough bread. Palate:- Bold and stable. Take a gentle pace to enjoy the buttery
    banana laced with acidic berries in various stages, masterfully balance.


    Finish:- Very long, with citrus orange peel echoing on the
    palate. Toasted almond nuttiness on the back and inviting restrained
    spiciness on mid palate. Still youthful and bold of a very well aged
    dram.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Color: Old Gold

    Aromatic uncommon, but with little depth.
    • Nose
      First alcoholic, then broken, green branches, furniture polish, bubbling lemonade. Malt, dry straw. Stay tuned. With water: rapeseed.
    • Taste
      Soft, a lot of wax, then comes little behind. Lemonade, dry grass. Anise, ginger tea. Kiwi.
    • Finish
      Long. Oranges, almonds, later beeswax.

    Full on the nose and flavour. Hints of tropical fruits and melon.

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Beautiful cooked fruit, oak typical of the best bourbons, intense. Then rise the chocolate and malt, in an atmosphere that remains dry. With a little water, coffee. Rather captivating. Woody and spicy on the palate, huge presence. Bitterness well dosed. Finale soft and melted in contrast. There are things going on!

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Yeah, its a nice easy drinking whisky but just too expensive.
    • Nose
      Its basically lemon and honey mixed in with a bit of furniture polish.

      After a while there is some honeycomb and finally Turkish delight (the lemon coloured one)
    • Taste
      That's pretty smooth for 50% and it reminds me of a pint of lager and lime.#

      There is a blast of honey, mango and some more lime with a bit of kiwi fruit.

      It then gets creamier on icing sugar mixed in with marshmallow.
    • Finish
      Quite long, still smooth and still that lager and lime taste, what`s not too like?
