- [January, 2018] Not too bad but I had much better 25-years old blends before like https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/45419/campbeltown-loch-25-year-old-spd or https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/72638/cutty-sark-25-year-old. This one is a little bit too simple for my taste but nevertheless easy drinkable. But I am not sure if I will remember its taste by tomorrow morning...
- Not bad, not bad at all, i have shared this with friends as a night cap and it seems to have gone down well, again quite cheap and a bargain, certainly a lot better than that shite 34 year old blend i paid £50 for at lidl.
Caramel chocolate, dried plums, almost, almost smell strawberries?, Beef Oxo cube, a little bit of aniseed, you really have to work hard on the nose because it's a bit weak.
The taste is a lot better, the sherry notes make an appearance and not too overpowering, there is blackcurrant juice, fruit cake, again that aniseed pops up, Army and Navy tablet sweets, you can taste the grain but it's in the background , i think there is a good chunk of Aberlour in there, i could be wrong
A medium dry bitter finish, and the sherry notes linger.
- The empty glass smell nice, but weak and faint.
- Affordable for a 25yo, but I think I would put my money elsewhere.
Thanks to karloff for saving me the expence.
Sweet, very sweet, on dark fruit and sherry notes.
However not deep enough to cover the grain.
Don't know if I would have picked it out as a blend in a blind taste, or just as a weak single.
It's not bad, but it lack depth and complexity.
Sitting a while I get faint apple and some caramel in the background.
Initial taste is actually quite good.
Fruity, again on the dark red kind, sweet chocolate, some old leather, cask wood, certainly of some age but I'm not too convinced about the quality of it.
And did I mention it's sweet?
Some nice walnuts in there, but when they're gone there's just the sweetness remaining, and it grows to an almost nauseating level.
- Better than I was expecting, just a nice sipping whisky when your palate needs a rest from the cask strength stuff.
Worth buying but I have a feeling it is out of stock now after recent price reductions.
- There must be sugar in this, yes its that sweet. If I was going to introduce someone to whisky but also want to give them some quality at the same time rather than something like grouse, this is what I would give them

Plum, prune, blackcurrant, ginger cake, dark sponge pudding, chocolate caramels.
Some cinder toffee comes through after a while
My first impression is its not half bad but it has a manufactured sweetness is what I am thinking.
Very fruity on plum and toffee apple with hints of fruit gums and candied fruits and very sweet toffee.
Medium length and getting sweeter by the second
