There's something strange about Black Velvet Reserve 8 year old. It is like Blue Velvet by David Lynch: there's few good spots but mainly it's just annoying.
Aromas balance between good and bad. The taste is actually decent and the finish is just too grainy and blended.
This left me a bit confused, just like almost every Lynch movie. Which isn't always bad. Better to be confused than angry, right?
Nose: First, the stingy alcohol and rectified spirit effects. Then it gets lightly fruity with lemon being the main factor. Everything fades away very fast and ends up almost completely scentless.
Taste: Gives heat very much. Peppery but mellow.
Finish: very quick with wood and peppers. Gets watery and uncharacteristic almost right away.
Balance: Black Velvet 8 yrs is decent whisky when compared to other cheap blended ones. Made me feel happy, yet blue...
