Whisky Reviews for Rivals 2016 CB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.80 points

  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Hmm, this is a really well constructed if a little boring blend. It's the typical nutty, malty, creamy and sweet CB nose, but it's hard to dislike it if it goes down like water!

    You can smell that Macallan in it, pineapple tidbits and macadamia nuts with some Jasmine and oak bring it all together! Rich malt, very moreish.

  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Simple, but lacking any complexity. Very much a typical CB flavor profile. Malt, honey, mild spice. Enjoyable, but forgettable.
