  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Husky hessian oily malt with a mineral sweetness. Time reveals more [bourbon) malty sweetness. I pick up creamy smoke just before sipping.
    T: Almost hollow inner yet with a firmer oily savoury-bitter outer layer.
    F: Husky, waxy-dry malt. Long waxy malty mouthfeel finish with dry cream latterly.
    C: Really good sipper as it goes. And who said blends are only for drinkers?Scores a B-

    [2019 bottle] This is certainly not as bad as I thought it would be, and I think the general score is a little harsh. It's extremely consensual but there's absolutely no off note and even some pleasant ones, like this cognac-y side. Still not something I'd buy but an uninformed beginner wanting to impress his stepdad with a "classy" gift could do much worse than buying this. Moreover, the grain feels much less than in other similar blends.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Peaches, young cognac, bread dough and a very slight solventy note that is really within limits. Surprisingly little grain influence and a remarkable fruity core, not just playing on the classic pear note.
    • Taste
      83 83
      This is a little thin, as exepected, but it really has some aromatic presence. Lacquered wood, peach, orange juice, and a touch of ginger. A convincing composition.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Shortish, of course, and not bringing anything new to the table.

    For me a disappointment. For this price you can also buy a better single malt.
    • Nose
      Something sherry, rye, gummy and somehow musty.
    • Taste
      Here are the gummi bears and the rye again. The muffiness remains.
    • Finish
      Short and dry.

  8. Ivynor scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nothing exceptional but nothing too shameful. A blend that does the job, but you can do so much better with 18-year-old whiskeys ...
    • Nose
      Very malty, grilled barley, toasted wood, herbs, morello cherry. Alcoholic enough.
    • Taste
      Pretty easy, although diluted, rather dry, vanilla wood, plum and morello cherry.
    • Finish
      Quite short, on the wood, the morello cherry, an astonishing tart.

  9. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bottle bought for the birth of my daughter and tasted between colleagues. A very rich luxury blend, with a toffee taste. Unbeatable quality / price ratio. Nose: caramel, milk chocolate behind. Tobacco, dry wood. Palate: Orange peel Finish: Pepper, long.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
