Whisky Reviews for Blended Scotch Whisky #1 TBWC

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.61 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    He is gentle and he is old, no question. Everything was consistent, but everything was also reserved. Really good whiskey, but no real revelation. Maybe today was just not the day.
    • Nose
      Quite reserved, but what arrives smells pleasingly old, old oak, slightly rustic, the old Grain is also to smell. Especially woody flavors without it being too much.
    • Taste
      Spicy, sweetish, raisins, dried fruit, some vanilla, tart oak, tannins, spices
    • Finish
      Sweet and spicy, a lot of oak, menthol, herb and also the raisins and dried fruits come by.

    N: Utterly moorish nose that comes from great age & blending. 
    T: Lots of consolidated layers.
    F: Swimmingly concentrated/blended initially but one that comes out just right at the end.
    C: A strong finish helps maintain overall balance.Scores a B

  6. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    In terms of pleasure it's 100%. The nose is his Achilles heel, the rest is really pretty, although I would have liked a little more oak.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whiskey n ° 1415
    • Nose
      Sweet and deep, on caramel and vanilla. More on the grain than the malt apparently. No woody notes. Cooked fruits, later roasted almonds. Mature, melted. A little flat. A hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Very sweet attack. Mellous to fall! Juicy wish. Still no wood, some discreet spices at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Winey, stewed fruit, superb. Long and subtly bitter - finally an indirect trace of oak.

  7. Macheye scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A whisky worth taking some time over. Literally. Allow this old boy a little time in the glass to relax and decompress a touch (it's been in a cask for a very long time after all). Your patience will be rewarded with a blend that is grain heavy, but not totally dominant, well-balanced and dangerously drinkable. A menagerie of breakfast cereals (you'll probably think of other brands to mine) and deep treacle/chocolate notes admirably demonstrate the juxtaposition of grain and malt for the half Century they've spent together in a cask.

  8. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Well my disappointment is to be compared to my expectations. Otherwise overall it is a good grain whiskey, even a good whiskey simply. It is quite well done as a whole but lacks personality. He will not return to my personal pantheon.
    • Nose
      Well, there is a lot of grain in this Blended and I am not surprised at the price. A very soft nose and very green at first. This nose is a beautiful complexity. There are sometimes vanilla, honey and even grilled almonds and at other times the fruits of the orchard dominate. After aeration, the nose is focused on grapes and licorice.
    • Taste
      A light attack on bitterness. Very fat on the palate we are on notes more herbaceous and spicy. There is Granny Smith apple, mint and licorice.
    • Finish
      A suitable length on mint, light spices, woody and bitterness that goes with it.

  9. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/whisky-weekender-golden-gems/

    N: [Blind] A very old one, a touch farmy/cheesy. Initially somewhat shy but it's far from small - beckoning me in to it’s hollow like Yoda to Luke [my first Starwars reference, Mark]. Later the sherry comes to the fore.
    T: Herbal & hollow-ish, not showing fragility but a meekness? Theres a concentration focused to the centre of the palate & equally to the centre of my mind - neuroscience link between palate & imagination required.
    F: A little smoke to the part-sherried malt and a little smoked liquorice - the smoke & sherry embedded, so more signs of serious age.
    C: Somewhat innocuous but thoroughly engaging - I spent 20 mins with it, which is quite some festival time.Scores a B

  10. mds51 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Round and quite rich, as is to be expected with these releases. Chocolate cornflake cakes or choc chip Weetabix Crispy Minis with fragrant sultana and white grape. Crème brûlée throughout.
    Palate: Black treacle and a little gypsy tart (evaporated milk and muscovado) with a fruity plum wine and sweet anise edge.Finish: Liquorice. A touch of cocoa also but unmistakably liquorice lingers on a long finish.
