  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Dusty, with caramel. He is too wise, dull limit.
    • Taste
      Very simple, with caramel again. Not very round, unbalanced limit. The reduction is too sensitive.
    • Finish
      Without interest.

      Enthusiasm: 2/5

    I will then make an exception and include here the value 4 price rating. Otherwise it would not be fair, because the only reason for such a blend is the low price. Let's say; i can drink it well and painlessly.
    But it offers no extra and is even quite boring. On the other hand, nothing bothers me. And there are also young cheap blends that still taste shit, which is not the case here. So, before you reach for a Walker Red, you better choose this one. The question is rather; who's going for a Walker Red here?

    Enjoy it straight from the measuring cup into the throat!

    Tasted at the whiskey festival in Budapest. So this is a really bad piece.

    • Nose
      Pretty sweet. Caramel, vanilla. There are also light varnish rivets, but not very repulsive. A little pepper. The alcohol is palpable. Traces of honey. Salt, a distant trail of the sea breeze. Wax.
    • Taste
      Light sweetness. Smoke is felt. Ash. Caramel. Lots of salt. Sea. Salty caramel. Lots of pepper. Pretty oily for a blende. Wax. Cigarette butts.
    • Finish
      Smoke, salt, caramel, salty caramel. A little pepper. Vanilla. Slightly warming up. Medium-long finish. Maybe some oak.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Re-review after 6,5 years. This was batch 12-03-20.
    The scores are also being topped up a bit because this is very good quality for money. It beat many a blend in this price range.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Quite savory, good dollop of the sherry casks here. Little smell of the grain. Some liquorish notes. But also there is an offnote here. Some fungi smell.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet, soft and rounded. Quite a good influence of the sherry cask. Yet not much depth. Although one should remember this is a €20,- blend!
    • Finish
      84 84
      Short length. Again hit of sherry, some wood, some toffee. But the fungi hint in here is a little disrupting.

    I give this 82, taking into account the price tag. It is an excellent value for money blend (handsomely beating its competitors at this price), but nothing more. Tasty but not exciting. Great for hot toddies!

    • Nose
      72 72
      warm, a little bit tangy, slightly smoky with a hint of prunes and oak notes ...
    • Taste
      72 72
      a bit alcoholic, initially slightly sweet then with tart notes of young grain whiskeys.
    • Finish
      71 71
      with slightly tart oak notes but also with a slight sweetness, ends softly and relatively briefly.
