Defeatless
Expert Senior Defeatless Review note
12 Jan 2016 11:27 pm
Defeatless gave this whisky 87 points

Nose: Sweet raisin, lovely wood texture, hint of vanilla and pineapple. Other overripe tropical fruit. Intense and complex nose, yet sweet and familiar.

Taste: sweet sweet honey, marzipan, marmelade, red fruit and some old hints of the classic rothes taste. Everyone will love this. Yet less complex as the nose.

Body: soft as silk.

Finish: medium- long: sweet more wood, less red fruit, yet tasty.

Price: for a 13yo a bit high. But considering the other spirits it might be well priced.

Presentation: Don't know this was a sample.

Color

Nose

Nice nose, warm jam sponge cake, marzipan and slight ginger note.

Taste
Too thin on the palate for me, and it is hot without much flavour. I get a little caramel traces of orange and a very slight biter note.
Finish

Quite short and dry

Comments

It s ok but nothing to get excited about.
