    • Nose
      Light, refreshing. Apples, pears, freshly peeled tangerine. Cyclist with lemon. A touch of vanilla and old newspapers.
    • Taste
      Very mild. Pears, a little vanilla. A trace of honey. Vodka Lemon.

    Standard beginner, with whom one does not wrong. Overall, but quite one-dimensional.

  3. tomjcollins85 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A decent introductory whisky, but not the best quality you can find on the supermarket shelf. If that's your limit, I prefer the Laphroaig 10, although the relatively smooth finish of the Glenfiddich may make it an easier 'first whisky'. Absolutely fine for the price, and I'd have no problem keeping this in stock for visitors.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Medium-intensity nose. Plasticine, some oak, raisins, some citrus. After 15 minutes in the glass (or an empty glass), there's some vanilla, candyfloss and more sweetness to the nose.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Medium-thick coating, immediately sweet, small amount of smoke and oak. After 20 seconds it becomes spicy, with pepper. I could not pick out any fruit in the mouth, but it's perfectly fine.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Relatively short, medium-smooth finish, initially a continuation of the sweet/oak flavours from the mouth, then moving to a warming/spicy finish. Quite pleasant actually.

  4. Vinchook scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    A great standard for whisky. Easy to drink. Very accessible for a beginner to get in to as a first single malt whisky. Not too heavy with a pleasant nose and long peppery finish.

    Fresh, light and slightly sprightly whisky. Not as bad as his reputation. Certainly a mass product but still OK for the price.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    N- Not as malty as the previous batch but beefed up on more citrus. Breeze of floral and caramel with dash of honey vanilla. Reserves and quiet, very safe.

    P- Good weight, spicier and more energetic, well sherry sweet with lasting spices. Pleasant and better muscle when try it side by side with previous labeling.

    F- Medium, balance, tea sweet, lasting peppery and gingery.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
