      Very fruity! Juicy fruit. But also chocolate. You can smell that this whiskey is a bit older. Breakfast cereals in milk. Honey. Oatmeal Porridge. In the distance it has something waxy. Is some coffee beans

      Velvet soft. No burn at all. Because of this he lacks strength, but it is a nice drinker. Still something that reminds me of a little sherry. Little hay / grass. Also some chocolate. Peach, grapefruit. The nose promised more. Much more.

      Just too short to be medium length. Tastes evaporate a bit quickly. Little black pepper. Banana. Wood.

    Blind tasting, sample provided by Defeatless.
    • Nose
      Old and dignified. It's mellow and friendly, full of waxy (beeswax) barley, some vanilla cream, and ample fruit (tinned peach dominate, but there is also pineapple, later also cherries and strawberries). Furthermore, there is a sensible level of grassiness, which makes this whisky fresh. Gets fruitier and sweeter associated by the minute. After a while, white raisins can be detected too. Then there is a faint hint of cinnamon.  It's extremely fruity and friendly, and must be the result of an active cask. A good refill hogshead maybe?
    • Taste
      sweet than expected, with a pleasant dryness. Polished oak, ginger, vanilla
      cream, coconut and pineapple. The grass gets louder, together with the pepper.
    • Finish
      herbal (grass, coriander), with soft barley, white grape seeds and a pinch of

    One of the best blend whiskeys I've ever drunk!

    The three of us had this bottle on a double birthday.

    Very fruity, balanced and rather mild with a nice, subtle oak finish.

    Very round and balanced.

    Very fruity. And a lot of honey sweetness. The finish is also something, I call it, more elegant than the previously-tried Johnnie Walker XR21 (WID: 51634) and Johnnie Walker Blue Label (WID: 51152). The Chivas Regal is already quite good but also very pleasing. Overall, but the best of the three blends.
    But also here. I prefer to grab a single malt.

    Big impression on this 25 years. We recognize quite the 18 years with a little more power, more depth and a nice peaty finish. Qualitatively, the jump is not huge compared to 18, this being said.
    Enthusiasm 3/5

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Appealing grapefruits and honey, entice with mist of muskiness linger, packed with rich caramel too. Complex and lovely. Palate:- Good weight and elegant, full of flavors and not aggressive,
    allowing you the time to taste it. Firm woody character coated with burnt
    honey. Well built and slender.

    Finish:- Velvet, smooth and lengthy.

    Delicious but not affordable to have it everyday. :P
