Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Sweet sherry, lemony notes and vanilla, some pears too. Quite nice actually,and full with that vanilla. the high %ABV is well integrated.
Palate: Very nice as well : Creamy, Chocolate, toffee, wood, and quite a bit of vanilla.
Finish : Cocoa , some dark chocolate, and wood.
This is a nice sipping whisky. It’s not overly complex,but delivers a good combination of the malt and grain. Plenty of vanilla, and chocolate with a new finish.
I’d recommend this blend for beginners, taking their first steps in the whisky world,as a good introduction to whisky before diving into the single malt world.
Price wise, this is not a very cheap, and even more expensive than some entry level single malts. If you are not intimidated by a “Blend” , it’s worth a try.
Good work by Duncan Taylor.
