  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-

    • Nose
      Orange, rather dry/austere, a dash lemon, a little mint, gingerbread spices, with a bit of time and heat vanilla and dried pears come out
    • Taste
      Dry, bitter fruit (oranges and grapefruit), nice fruit sourness, bitter nuts (walnuts), pear pie
    • Finish
      Bitterness gets stronger, a hint of smoke, burned caramel

  4. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: rich buttery caramel, notes of the peaches that come on the palate

    Palate: sweet peaches and caramel give way to a little heat a bitter grass

    Finish: peaches, some hay, dry oak

    Overall: A very soft drinkable blend. Not overpowering or complex for an 18 year old whisky.

  8. Gaija scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    [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.
