  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I am sure it works
    well with a beer, but the blend it itself is very nice too. Around 50 to 60
    EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is
      honeysweet and butter, as if from corn on the cob. Loads of honey and wild
      flowers. Vanilla. Smells a bit bourbon like. Maple syrup and cinnamon. The
      fruit is limited to apples and grapefruit. Reminds me of apple cake after a few
      moments.
    • Taste
      Oily and sweet on the
      palate. Vanilla and a touch of pepper appear first, then apple cake or even
      apple sauce and finally some citrus and oak. Not very complex, but far from a shabby
      blend. Very far. Silky soft.
    • Finish
      The apple cake
      lingers until the very end of the mildly drying, oak whispering, spicy finish.

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

  5. Docmacwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jim Murray has awarded 89.5 points to the Delilah's Limited Edition. "I'll be surprised if you get to the point where you couldn't take any more..."

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Not watery despite the reduction, a nice starter (but dispensable).
    • Nose
      Vanilla, bourboneux, sweet nose. A little wood resin. Nose weak enough and quickly fades.
    • Taste
      Very vanilla mouth, bourboneuse too. Sweet, it goes alone.
    • Finish
      A little pepper and woody bitterness.

    Producer`s Note

    Rich and sweet, with intense yet subtly
    complex, honeyed and seductive fruity notes, cereals and vanilla-cream.

    A special, beautifully labelled, small batch, limited edition blend from Compass

    Box, bottled in honour of the 20th birthday of legendary Chicago punk rock and

    whisk(e)y bar Delilah`s. Created by Compass Box`s John Glaser and Delilah`s Mike

    Miller it`s a blend that can be enjoyed by any kind of whisky lover, from the

    sipper to beer-and-a-shot drinker
