General description

Added this to my collection because of the Johnnie Walker connection. This is not a JW. A smooth sailing single malt that I rate highly...certainly not a10, but just easy relaxing, nothing harsh & a couple of things going on as you taste - Fruit & wood, nice gentle finish. I preferred ice and it got better as it melted 👍🥃!

Nose

Spice, vanilla, spearmint??

Palate

Light smoke, delicate spirit, citrus ?? It's complex!!

Finish

Medium, soft & easy, gentle peat ???

General description

Very good entry level whisky. Smooth but distinctive. Best chocolate taste I had so far.

Nose

Very light fruits for a sherried whisky. I have cherries, pears, mango, also cinnamon and nutmeg on the spicy side. The nose is fresh, really sweet and pleasant.

Palate

Very smooth and fruity. Again cherries and strawberries, also marzipan and caramel and a bit chocolate chips. Wonderful mouthfeel, just creamy enough.

Finish

Nice warming sweet finish with much milk chocolate.

Orange and apple scent at the nose. Spiky in the mouth, with fruit chocolate notes. All theese flavours vanish in the ending, leasing place to a light honey and vanilla taste. After opening the malt, it's honey time! Good whisky after all.
