  1. Goldenwhiskycave did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    not bad for his price
    • Nose
      light but if you go deeper into the glass sharper, lemon ... with something sweet
    • Taste
      sharp, spicy in the middle
    • Finish
      creamy soft, taste is gone quickly, alcohol fire a little bit

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    The price is cheap - it's alright if you want to fall into the arms of Morpheus, but won't make you wax lyrical as this tasting note proves.  Off to watch Jilly Goulden to pick up some phrases.
    • Nose
      Quite an unusual aroma that it difficult to describe - like some exotic drink you try on holiday.
    • Taste
      Strange - warming, but slightly acidic.
    • Finish
      It lingers for quite a while -  quite pleasant, but not typical of any usual flavours.

    As a result, it's not as bad as I expected, it's a surprisingly strong and wholly blended whiskey that could be equal to Red Label or Ballantinka Finest, in some ways it's even better, but its imbalance (a disturbing similarity to brandy in smell and a special tail in the flavor) is unnecessarily thrown down.
    I was rather surprised by my competitiveness, but I still would not buy the whole bottle for the two hundreds. Its competitors will come in a more harmonious and, in the end, more harmonious, although they are less noticeable in certain parameters.
    • Nose
      The aroma is surprisingly rich and rich, it is sweet to malty to hazel (sugar walnuts), it is stronger and more pronounced than the comparison Queen Anne, which I took to compare the hand.But I'm sorry, besides the sweet malt, I notice some atypical tones for whiskey, which remind me of the cheap brandy, makes it slightly disturbing.
    • Taste
      In taste malt, woody, walnuts, slightly bitter in flavor. After a long time (about two minutes later), the second wave of scent appears a disturbing tail, a slight taste on the tongue.
