  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This whisky, while
    not a big Scotch, is very nice.
    • Nose
      The nose is fruity on
      mandarin and dried pineapple. Honeysweet, thanks to a touch of butterscotch and
      a hefty helping of caramel. Very creamy, mildly spicy. A good start.
    • Taste
      It is very creamy on
      the palate as well. It starts of sweet on pineapple, citrus and caramel, but
      then a bitter side turns up. But the balance is sufficient, in contrast with
      the previously tasted Centenary Reserve bottling from Gordon & Macphail.
      Nice and warm because of a light trace of woodsmoke. I am, for some reasons,
      thinking about Sabayon. Quid?
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and sweet, mild on spices and drying.
