Distribution of ratings for this:
The bottle states that this blended whiskey is matured in white oak barrels for 10 years.
Nose: light, sweet, indistinct, honey, caramel
Taste: grapes, pears, sweet, a little caramel and honey. There is a lot of spice in the background, but it somehow doesn't seem to integrate with the fruit flavours
Finish: the fruits and sweet honey last long, but all of flavours diminish steadily after about 15 seconds
Balance: this whiskey is so grapey that I first thought that it had to be aged in sherry casks. Maybe this has some of that wonderful 9% of additives that Canada allows in its whiskeys. It could be sherry that we taste here, or some other wine. Jim Murray liked this whiskey, giving it a 93/100. I do NOT like this whiskey. I find the integration lacking and the grape-wine flavour just kind of out of place here. If the grape flavour were reduced by half this would be better in my book. This is more wine-cooler type of flavour profile in my opinion
