  1. coldsun scored this whisky 5 points Expert Senior

    Simple whiskey without something special. Probably taste is a little bit stronger (more alcoholic) than I like.

  2. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Glenlivet whiskey is the main malt in this blend

    If there's not a good shot of Glenlivet in there ... For the friends of the very mild and consumers who do not care about whiskey. Probably also good for mixing.
    • Nose
      Sweet, lovely, fruity, that's how the first fragrance can be described. Gentle notes of soft orange-yellow fruit drizzled with lemon juice. A very light minty freshness, a pinch of powdered sugar. And in the background a hint of sherry & oak. If you add water, malt comes out. Furthermore, breathy notes of grapefruit juice, lemon maoam, apple peel and some cereals.
    • Taste
      The Passport has a very soft and velvety smooth start. An idea sherry, some oak, a few spices & pureed yellow fruits. I'm not sure, but is not there something about Grain Whiskey? It gets even softer with water than it already is. Some wood, but now also clearer fruit notes. And, yes, those are the graynotes, clear and clear.
    • Finish
      Soft spicy sounds & small, almost mild, pepper notes. Over time, gracefully graceful Grainanklänge develop additionally. All in all, relatively short finish. If water has been added, the finish will only provide the soft touch of a light dryness, a faintest hint of mild spices & (luckily) a little chocolate note.

    Nose:- Light heat and pungent on first sniff. Underlay earthy note, wet mud and roasted peanut. Very soft.

    Palate:- Grainy, medium body with touch of oil and caramel.

    Finish:- Warming, short-medium. Toasted bitterness remains.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    • Finish
      Delicate sweet

    I directly compared the Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition, but the price and qualitative difference was pretty pronounced, but good for a point spacing. Passport is a very delicate blend, cultured, well-drunk, light and definitely a very good alternative to more sophisticated blends. I was surprised. If I had chosen Ballantinkou Finest, Walker Red Label and Passport, I would pass Passportce. Thank you for the sample.
    • Nose
      Smooth, soft. Straw, delicately citrus, a pinch of smoke, some malt, and ultimately mint. After drinking and evaporating in the glass, a smell of smoke, smoke, remained. (77 b)
    • Taste
      Taste delicate, rounded, light. Malt, vanilla. But in the touch, it presses, pleasant wood appears, again a hint of smoke, surprisingly without signs of bitterness. (79 b)

    This isn't meant for sipping really, but you can. Sure, it's no Macallan, GlenDronach, Dalmore, etc, but it's honest simplistic whisky.
    There's nothing wrong with it per se, and if you're not a big whisky drinker, or you got a friend over who's not into whisky, or need something for mixing, this would definitely work!
    Especially considering price, it's dirt cheap, and unlike other cheap whiskies you CAN sip it.
    • Nose
      Sweet honey, green apples, vanilla, butterscotch, the grain takes center stage, and the malt gives it a bit more complexity. Simplistic, smooth, not bad but not brilliant either.
    • Taste
      Basically the same as the nose. Green apples, honey, vanilla, butterscotch. And, again, the grain leads, but the malt is more perceptible (though no idea where they're from).
      Quite sweet, smooth, simplistic. But, again, not exactly brilliant.
    • Finish
      Short and sweet. Leaves nothing behind really.

    I just purchased this in Jan 2015 in Costa Rica. From what I understand
    this is a Scotch whisky but bottled or blended in Brazil using Brazilian
    water.

    Nose - had your typical fruit / apple and a hint of smoke which is something I like.

    Taste
    - the initial taste is tobacco, peat, smoke, along with some plum but
    then the finish starts and you get a bitterness comes out that is kind
    of distracting.

    Finish - there is a smoke but again a bitterness takes over.

    Now to be fair, I have only had one dram of this and will give it another try later.

    Price here in Costa Rica is 10,000 colones or about $18.00
