Tasting Notes by galg
Nose: Vanilla up front, quite lemony, as in lemon pie, or meringue, green apples and maybe some pears too. quite fresh, with some oak notes. Palate: Creamy, but with a zing of gingery lemon stuff. vanilla custard, and some oriental candy, with bits of almonds, pistachios and sweet sultana towards the end, where a slight alcoholic bite is detected. Finish : medium,with oak notes (quite some wood here) , almonds , biscuits , and spice. Not very long, but long enough.
This is a very good whisky.Well blended, with the right amount of wood influence, and a bit of everything (save smoke, which is not to be found here). Pricewise it’s not the cheapest of blends costing about £32 for bottle (if 750 ml bottles existed, currently it’s sold only in 0,5 litre bottles), and at that price you can get quite a few great single malts, but As a higher end blended scotch whisky it delivers just what it promises.
