A very simple, yet complex whisky. Contradictory, isn't it?

NOSE: Light, simplistic, not over-powering. Notes of coffee, slight apple, floral, rich bouquet. 21/25

TASTE: The nose is as good as the taste, and a little better. Rich cinnamon, clove, treacle, honey, but still light and smooth. 22/25

FINISHL Rich, creamy, vanilla, coffee, delicate. This is a whisky you do not want to rush- it takes time and is significantly delicious and different considering the Johnnie Walker's. 23/25

BALANCE: Perfect- absolutely lovely and rich. A whisky to be savored and enjoyed. 23/25

Why does your review say (Not Pure Malt)? If it's the 15 year old Green Label, it is a pure malt (or blended malt). It isn't a single malt, but it is a blending of four single malts, with no grain whisky. If I'm remembering correctly, it is a pure malt blend of these single malts, Caol Ila, Cragganmore, Linkwood, and Talisker.

My guess, the "Pure Malt" reference is for the older bottlings that had "Pure Malt" on the label vs. the bottlings in recent years with the "Blended Malt" label.

systemdown, that makes sense in context, now that the term "pure malt" has been replaced with "blended malt" (which is less clear, but the same thing)! JW has evidently changed the packaging to reflect that change. I've only seen the pure malt labeling here in the US, even now.
