  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm: Nose and Finale: 2/5 Palate: 3/5 Whiskey n ° 1426
    • Nose
      Caramel. Ah, someone makes a model in the garage with cardboard and glue! Very light.
    • Taste
      Easy and creamy. Well managed reduction. Wooded. Very honest about spices, especially for a blend.
    • Finish
      Rather short, but if there is some persistence. A little unbalanced.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, a little wood, malt, a dusty side (which I often find in blends before!), Then yellow-orange fruits and a return honeyed!
    • Finish
      very simple, very smooth, I begin to understand why these bottles can be drunk at the neck.

    Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.comThe Famous Grouse (40%, OB, blend, France, +/-1985) Three stars and a half Colour: straw. Nose: ah yes, this was something else. More malt, probably, and something of Highland Park.
    Honey, nuts, pine sap, warm oak and herbs (parsley)… Very nice nose, surprisingly big. Mouth: same! It’s big, rich, honeyed, fruity (oranges) and quite smoky.
    Finish: as often, it’s the finish that’s a tad less interesting with old blends and it’s the case here. But there’s a nice malty honeyness.
    Comments: these batches were really excellent and they would put many malts to shame. THIS is buyable – and so cheap at auctions. SGP:542 - 84 points.
