  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    - a really positive surprise for a relatively young one
    Single grain
    - delicious and totally uncomplicated
    - significantly better than, for example, the Cameron Brig
    - at around 20-25 € not too expensive if you have a grain
    want to try that also tastes good
    • Nose
      subtle, light character, sweetness, vanilla, subtle honey notes and typical gray smell (but not unpleasant)
    • Taste
      very mild start, sweetish, light spice, nice soft honey sweetness, very round
    • Finish
      short finish;
      short, slightly sweet aftertaste

  4. Ben Bruikman scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Bain's is a single grain whiskey distilled by the James Sedgewick Distillery. The whiskey was introduced in 2009. It is a fine, soft grain with a pleasant sweetness. The whiskey fully matures in first-fill bourbon barrels. However, it is transferred to new barrels in the meantime. A double maturation in the same type of barrels. It has no age rating, but the whiskey is at least five years old. The James Sedgewick Distillery was founded in 1886 in Wellington on the South African Western Cape.
    the color is deep gold.
    • Nose
      The fragrance has aromas of toffee, vanilla, custard, grapefruit and floral accents.
    • Taste
      The taste: notes of creamy vanilla, pear, banana, sweet oak and spices.
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is warming and very soft.

  7. Alba Clann scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    A pleasant and easy-drinking Single Grain.
    Nose: Rich and complex marked by gourmet notes of caramel, toffee and beautiful floral aromas.
    Palate: Unctuous and greedy with a hint of spice softened by the soft nuances of oak.
    Finish: Long and warm with a nice soft texture that stays in the mouth.
