- Smooth and easy, almost solely brown sugar
- good quality blend
(neat) sweet, rounded, creamy vanilla, honey, touch of smoke
(water) flowers, peaches, nose become more complex and richer
(neat) sweet and astringent, spirity, ashy
(water) ash disappeared, sweet, syrupy, some treacle
medium long, dry, ashy
Well married of flavours, very soft, rather floral with abundance of
orchard fruits and sweet malts. Tangeline, with light hint of airy
burnt honey smokes.
P- Peppery, honey with solid wood flavours. Vanilla, tangeline and sharpened pencils.
F- Short-medium, citrus and pleasant. Bitter lemon with honey.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur
- Nose: Sweet nose, hint of grass, mud and a slow running creek side. Some vanilla, hint of toffee, and there is sure some amount of grain in it. Some corn syrup and a faint touch of glue.
Rather good nose for a mass produced whisky.
Hint of peat, pepper, burned wood, some grass, peat again, ginger, some wood, toffee, wood and a sour note.
This one goes quite some directions. But as I don't like peat, I don't really like it, but I don't hate it either.
Not much as it is a blend
Medium. Peppery, some vanilla and toffee, peat and that's about it.
Very reasonable for it's quality
A bit of pr on it about how many awards they've won. But the bottle and carton look nice.
A rather good blend. I think it's underrated. I applaud Bacardi for going the opposite way of Diageo. And this one is just a good step up.
- I didn't have many positive expectations upon opening this bottle, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The nose in particular has some nice complexity to it, a little multilayeredness, with some interesting bitter vegital beneath the otherwise sweet nose. I recommend giving it a chance with an open mind. Definitely an improvement on the basic level Dewar's.
