The colour is yellow (straw) with golden glints and the nose is fresh, mentholated with some herbal hints and yeast touches.
The palate is rather balanced and bitter, developing to malt. The finish is smooth with herbal notes.
An interesting malt, with a disapointing nose

(la Maison du Whisky)

Personal Comment
This other essential part of the Chivas Blend (the first one being Strathisla) is a good whisky of the Speyside area. No regret to having purchased it (the price is very reasonable too), but it is not an exceptionnal whisky.
70/100
It is obvious at the second tasting that the first one was a little bit to severe. The nose is rather rich and fresh, and the palate reveals some complex and slightly acid aromas. The finish is rather short, but pleasant, developing to some kind of perfumed malt.
74/100
The nose is marked by some sweet but slightly spiced hints with some vanilla on the background. In the palate, the malt remains quite active, mixed with a kind of bitterness and sweet touches. The finish is short, and continues on with sweet notes before bitterness returns...
70/100
Nice floral nose, notes of heather with some ripe fruit hints. Another nice whisky for the the sweet side lovers...
The mouth is very smooth too. Ripe fruit and honey. Although it is not very complex, it this whisky has a nice presence in the palate.
The finish is long and warm, still on the same ripe fruit notes.
Apparently this bottles gets better with the time. It is now opened for a few years.... Amazing...

Personal Comment
If you have ever looked for a real sherry monster, you should give this one a try. Woah, what an incredible sherry nose. But there is much more. Nice complexity. Sherry mixed with dry fruit, plum, discrete wood, some coffee, lots of pleasure.
The first mouth is rather bitter, clearly marked by sherry too, before developing on coffee and woody notes and than back to sherry again. Lots of character. An absolute must have for sherry amateurs.
Would you believe it? The finish is also marked by sherry with nice discrete woody notes. It is lingering and extremely pleasant. Another fabulous whisky.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: Straw.
Nose first nose instantly a whiff of candied fruit and jammy, with a light veil of smoke. Fruit tree fire. Potpourri. Fruit paste, marzipan. Morello cherry, strawberry. Chewing gum with strawberry. Wood. Heady flowers. Develops on pastry sponge. Sweet cherry, cassis. Very delicious and beautiful evolution. Spices, finally.
With water, the nose is very pleasant, though less demonstrative.
Palate: Smooth and crisp at the same time. In line with the nose, but with a nice presence of dried fruit, oak and spice all coming. Spices. Cocoa, coffee roasting. Honey nougat.
Water weakens the general profile and brings a certain pungency.
Finale: In line with the mouth, but the woods and spices predominate. Slightly sulfur. Warm, strong enough and good length.
Water removes its personality in the final, but it is of good length.

Comments: A very nice nose, rich, intense, almost sweet, scalable, we do not get tired. Mouth, although very pleasant and a nice personality, is a little less easy. Nice final also. The water is not recommended.

Comment by Amor57
The nose begins with a nice balance between fruit, spices, wood and wax. In a short time it becomes earthy, fruity background on a humic based apple and apricot. I also found traces of vanilla, ozone (arc) and rare organic solvents. More consistent with aeration, always on the bottom and fruity humic aromas of orange develop, iodine distant, melted butter, banana, vanilla while getting stronger. On the palate , sweet and salty. Spices and sweet fruits (banana, mango) accompany the meal and licorice. The final, good length, revolves around licorice, with spices (including wood from India) and incorporates the fruit of his mouth.
The addition of water enhances the flavors of citrus, flowers and wax, while the mouth is a little sharper.
A nice whisky, very pleasant, with a nice bitter end "sticking to the mouth."

Nose: powerful, first on the cereal, hazelnut and black pepper. It evolves quickly and softens with vanilla and apricot.
Palate: Soft and thick, it is characterized by the presence of apricot, vanilla and almond.
Finale: Beautiful persistence, still with aromas of apricot.
I think inevitably a Speyside, which could be a Benriach. I love it even though it lacks malt complexity.

Comment by Jmputz
Colour: Straw
Despite some unpleasant tingling at first, the nose develops pretty fruity offering both freshness and complexity. Green apple and a light veil of bitterness. The nose is very promising anyway.
The first impression on the palate is pleasantly contrasted. Acid freshness competes with soft fruity notes while being marked by a strong presence of alcohol, giving him power, but not providing any discomfort.


The final average length is in the perfect continuation of the mouth. Always this balance between freshness mixed acid and ripe fruit.

Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: stare is some presence of honey and fruitiness (banana). Followed by citrus (lemon), almond, praline, mango and coconut. Then everything is uniform around this notes. It is very nice and frankly it makes us travel to the sun.
Palate: The alcohol is present with a predominance of almonds although we still find exotic notes in the mouth. It becomes a little less greedy with renewed more spices and notes of chocolate. In any case, the texture is soft and provides a great deal of pleasure.
Finale: Once the nut is found off, some "bounty" effect (Chocolate and coconut jam a lot), even with spices. Too bad it's still too short. The aftertaste remains light and fresh enough.

Comment: A really interesting whisky, a very excellent highland-like nose with exotic intensive notes (especially mango and coconut). The alcohol in the mouth i s bit too present but this is a nice dram around almond, coconut and spices. In addition, it remains very round palate. Paradoxically, despite a fairly strong entry in the mouth, the finish is too short.

Comment by Wiski
Color: Gold
Nose: The nose is fruity with notes of peach, banana and apricot, with hints of vanilla. The nose is creamy pastry (almond paste, custard). Citrus (lemon in particular) are juicy and refreshing at the same time. Gradually nose opens with aromas of toffee butter. Aeration brings more juicy.
Becomes very floral with a dash of water, like a Lowland or Irish.
Palate: The fruit intensity is disconcerting! This are the fruits of the nose (peach, apricot, banana) with an impressive presence. The fruit is juicy, ripe, almost like a fruit liqueur. Develops later on some sweet spices with floral notes (yellow flowers).
With a high sweetness with a dash of water, still as intense fruity.
Finale: On the yellow fruit, sweet spices, sweet (sugar), rather short.

Comment by Jbrice
Nose: Typical Highlands I say! Firstly, a lot of yellow fruits. Vanilla galore. Some coriander and mustard seed. The apricot jam. Then, as and aeration, notes of ripe bananas free. A hint of minerality second nose.
Mouth in the extension of the nose. Rather powerful.
Finish: very long on the mustard seed and candied fruits.

Comments: a beautiful highland whisky that can be aged in a bourbon barrel. I like this kind of malt although the complexity is relatively average. Pleasure in any case is there and thanks to the long finish.

Comment by Alexandre
The nose scents of pastry cake with light cream and coffee. However, it lacks poise and power. It also smell a mild anise and a little paper. After cooling, a relatively quiet sherry appears with dates. An interesting nose but lacks relief.
The palate is sweet on chocolate. It also has a hint of sherry. Subsequently, the thing becomes more robust, with spice and pepper all in a vibrant atmosphere. The power of the whole is average. We also see a bit of caramel and grains. Aeration enhances its robust character, with a little salt showing up.
The final average length is on strawberries and liqueur (brandy). There is also some peat.

In conclusion, whisky lacking presence, even if it has an original character, including in the mouth.

Nose: In the beginning only freshness. Only after a few minutes there appear more sweet fruity notes (apricot / pineapple) upwards in combination of malty tones, vanilla and some wood.

Taste: Soft, sweet and spicy.

Finish: Medium long, spicy and some slight bitterness at the end.

Colour: gold
Nosing: nose needs some time to come through. But then very fresh and sweet. Apple pie, granny smith apples. Some hints of peppermint. Complex and attractive.
Tasting: powerful, creamy with a warm mouth feel. Honey and sweet barley. Later on some spice.
Finish: medium. Peppery and bitterness.

Comment: for me the nose was better than the taste. Especially the finish was too bitter for me.

Comment by Dede
Color: Gold
Nose: It opens with the candy apple, a bit chemical and barley sugar, vanilla sugar, berlingots or marshmallow, finally, there is the fruit sweet a little cheap, but not unpleasant for all.
Palate: The attack is sweet, on cereal, but the mid-palate, more pungent, slightly marked by spices (ginger). We find this fruity sweetness of the nose, but a little on the apple chard now, with the added bonus of green bitterness.
Finish: Medium length, pleasantly fruity.

Conclusion: A nice malt, not complex for a penny, but that easy drinkable.

Comment by Sebou007
Colour: Straw

Nose: It starts out with nice floral notes, ripe fruit, peach, apricot, apple. We then go on with green apple manzana, a little vanilla, marzipan. Settles down after a few minutes, after we had quite a starting exuberance. It then goes on smooth, with notes of perfume, honey, berries (blackberries, raspberries) with cream (like yogurt with fruit). The alcohol is very well integrated in a very sweet-nosed whisky.
Palate: The palate is however very marked by alcohol, nearly burning. It is acid, with lime and green apple (green apple candy almost). I am not a fan, especially after the impression the nose left me. There are still some interesting touches: almond, dried apricot, vanilla, hazelnut almost too green.

inale: A bitter finish (again green almond), medium and a little acid.

Conclusion: A two-faced whisky: one smooth, round on fruit, vanilla, very well integrated alcohol. And a completely unbalanced mouth, very acidic, with a lot of alcohol and green notes, annoying for the palate. A disappointment given the nose.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: When I first nosed this one, directly from the bottle, it seemed really sexy to me with lots of very ripe banana, custard and crème brûlée. From the glass, seems much more austere, like straitjacketed by whiffs of straight alcohol. White orchard fruits (apples and pears) jump to the foreground, along with pure lemon juice and an obvious grassy side.
Mouth: Grassy it is, and quite hot, but with a pleasant soft vanilla touch. Icing sugar, and after a while, a slight hint of nectarine lost in a heavy woody and liquoricy dryness that keeps growing at the same pace than the alcohol (55 % ?).
Finish: Long, dry, bitter, quite astringent, it leaves your mouth like anesthetized.
Comment: A queer mixture; some nice fruity notes and a heavy dry woodiness. Like pouring a nice 1991 Lochside in a low grade cask.

The first nose is rather discreet but turns out as you go. Nice fruity notes after a while. Pretty notes of marzipan after yellow ripe fruits ones .
The taste is very subtle and balanced. Slightly woody notes (like cashews) and interesting fruity notes.
The finish is fresh and quite long. Slightly acid notes share the stage with a slight bitterness.

Personal Comment

Colour: Old gold
The first impression is that on the nose of a tingling due to alcohol. After several minutes of aeration, fruity notes appear. Relatively complex, the fruit notes give some freshness to the whisky by the slightly acidic side which dominates.
On the palate, too, the first impression is the strength of the alcohol which fortunately gave way to fruity notes mixed with some bitterness. A mixture of green apple and walnut. The taste is pleasant but does not present a very balanced character or an exaggerated complexity.
The finish is medium length and slightly bitter notes of nuts take over after a more acidic episode.

The nose is initially somewhat aggressive, with slight tingling due to alcohol. Thereafter, shy notes of green fruits appear through a sort of wax veil. The nose is nice, but lacks of candor and complexity.
The mouth has the same characteristics as the nose with a strong presence also alcohol. A lack of candor, a wax veil masking tastes we however guess to be very pleasant. Green fruit from the nose had time to mature.
The finish is relatively short and warm and denies neither the nose or mouth.

The same smooth impression is present in the palate, despite a relative high percentage of alcohol. Very pleasant sensation, even if the complexity is not there...

Color: Gold
A wonderfully fruity nose with lovely ripe fruit (peach, pear) mingled harmoniously with subtle acidity of tangerine. A certain bitterness, touch of gentian, round out this extremely promising nose. A blend of freshness and spice.
The mouth is less wild than the nose, but nevertheless has some very nice fruity notes, while the acidic side has disappeared. Unexpected and very enjoyable jam notes appear after a few moments and always that little bitterness in the background. extremely complex mouth, really enjoyable.
The finish is long and is as complex as the mouth. After a few minutes, a pleasant bitterness takes over the top after a fruity episode.
A great surprise.

A very pleasant nose marked by notes of ripe fruit and freshness. Nice complexity with this very discreet bitterness that can be sensed in the background. A remarkable nose, anyway. Gently without falling into the honey.

The mouth is the same ilk, even if the bitterness seems to get more present than the fruit. This makes it a very interesting combination and this little fruit-acid bitterness gives it a pleasant complexity. A mouth which does not deny the hopes of the nose. Especially when the last notes are slightly minty.
The finish prolongs perfectly the mouth, and these little finely woody and yet very ripe fresh fruit like notes make this bottle a marvel.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Color: White gold.
Nose: first nose instantly on a beautiful note of dough slightly tart fruit. Then a slight bitterness on the green wood appears, giving the nose a little soapy side, without this being detrimental. Evolves quite quickly on the eau de toilette, perfume "vetiver". Finally, we return to the beautiful fruity departure, but without the sour side, and more stewed. The fruit is a little more exotic, the roasted pineapple and green banana. Subtly woody and spicy.
Palate: Rich, woody, spicy and mild soap. Light fruit, and salt.
Finale: In the wake of the mouth, a warm start.

Comment: A nice nose, mouth, nice, and very interesting notes. The addition of water into the daily dram but it removes the personality of the character.

Comment by Jmputz
Color: Pale yellow
The nose is initially quite sharp, probably because of alcohol. Once past this small inconvenience, nice fruity notes emerge. Beautiful citrus notes give a nice freshness while slightly bitter notes on the horizon. This is a very nice nose, complex and enjoyable as I love them, even if at the end of light medicinal notes appear.
The mouth is also very pleasantly complex. A constant back-and-forth between tastes fruity acids, toast and hints of softer notes of honey. Any discomfort caused by alcohol as was the case for the nose.
The finish is relatively short and tastes fade fairly quickly.

Nose: Herbaceous, vanilla, fresh. Lots of fresh fruit.

Taste: Citrusy, spicy, herbaceous. At first, the alcohol is not very well integrated but it quickly subsided.
Gaining balance and complexity with aeration.

Finale: Ginger, lemon, spices, cinnamon, very long. Alcohol is less well integrated after a long aeration, which is messing with the nose and mouth.

Comments: Good but seems and probably is a little bit young. The nose is very nice, much less the final.

Comment by Dede
Colour: Pale gold
Nose: Granny Apple at all stages in the first nose, then a little gum (the pink and blue of our childhood) and orgeat syrup. The set is nice, oscillating between sweetness and acidity. It grows with a little water on the cider vinegar, making the nose a little less pleasant.
Taste: Very powerful, it will require a little water. We still find fruity acidity detected in the nose. A dash of water confirms these notes citrus fruits, which are mixed with a flavor both wooded and a little green reminiscent of pine sap.
Finish: Medium length, it is very intense, the fruit fading unfortunately very quickly.

Conclusion: A decent malt, a little violent dry but pleasant when diluted. Pity that the final is so low.

The nose is very floral first and shows a nice freshness, based on iris powder and a light lavender. The wood is distant. Development is done on fruits (apricot, pear light plum, grapefruit). From scattered notes of pear bring even more freshness. In the mouth the attack is frank, the sugar and timber. The tannins are marked. I also find the cardboard box, rare flowers and fruits equally rare. The finale, a nice length, is first on the spices (cumin, wood from India or allspice) and then back on flowers (honeysuckle, pink).
Profile light and pleasant. Enjoy it.

Comment by Piazzolla
Nose: intense and almost spicy, slightly fruity (peach dominant on a pear and fresh apricot peak). Vinous side after aeration even if the overall indolent!
Palate: soft and silky. Quite elegant although not very expressive. More on that pear nose. Yeasts.
Final: feared bitterness but it remains on the nose scents which disappear quietly. A note of milk chocolate and hazelnut?
Conclusion: A good balanced malt , delicate and pleasant to drink.

Comment by Wiski
Colour: Gold
Nose: The nose is floral and lemony, lemon and also orange blossom. Vanilla is sweet. The nose is pretty cool even with a hint of mint and iodine. The grass is freshly cut. Develops with notes more sweet juicy. Adding a dash of water makes the whisky very floral, with a touch of refreshing acidity of the lemon zest.
Palate: The palate is sweet on citrus (lemon in particular) and the bitterness of the lemon peel is felt. The peel is almost sparkling with some spices. Some floral notes develop later (lavender, violet). With water, the more bitter and walnut wood in particular. The appearance slightly iodized ultimately remains fairly intact.
Finale: Lemon and spicy (pepper).

Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: It smells like banana and white chocolate. There are also notes of orchard (peach). The opening gives touches of legumes, nuts and tangerine. Water gives the trappings of industrial apple pie.
Palate: From malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a lot of orange (majority) in this dram. One feels a certain alcoholic strength without having such an amplitude level servers. Adding water tightens the noose around the orange-chocolate duo.
Finale: It falls on the bitterness of citrus and a bit of cinnamon and paprika.

Comment: His nose is not very complex, but still very pleasant. In the mouth, it is unfortunate that the integration is not alcoholic nickel and flavors are a little timid. A dram I consider as  dispensable.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Colour: Straw.
Nose: Big and straightforward. Probably pretty close from the 60%. Strangely, unfolds on a malty and honeyed sweetness, with hints of candied lemon peels, and quite some fresh almonds. Smooth and mineral at the same time. High end Chardonnay. One for Serge Valentin?
Mouth: Starts on a sweet mouth touch with quite some vanilla before growing rather hot. Becomes dry and unsexy, but in a rather elegant way. Not really my cup of tea, but highly respectable.
Finish: Of medium length, ending on a refreshing mentholated touch and a slight saltiness. An Islander ?
Comment: A carefully crafted robust old style malt. Some might find it austere, others will say classy. Choose your side!

Comment by mapi
Nose: The nose is marked by a woodiness that seems hiding flavors. It then evolves into floral notes and dust.
Palate: The attack is frank with good freshness. The alcohol is then discrete causing a lack of pep in the second part of the mouth.
Final sugar and salted butter and then menthol.

Comment by Jbrice
Nez : très classique. De la pomme, de la poire. Quelques épices (vanille & cannelle).
Bouche : du bois et des céréales. Un brin acidulée et amère en fin de bouche.
Finale : Assez longue sur une amertume boisée.

Commentaire : un whisky facile à boire mais qui ne m'intéresserait pas du tout.

Comment by Flonews
Color: clear gold .
Nose: Franc, a hint of smoke and slightly richer and greedy background. Some spicy notes and soft wood.
Palate: Explosive. Alcohol neutralizes the whole attack and lets only a few notes acids appear. Olfactory return quite pastry but aeration is essential. Adding water brings out the acid side, nose and mouth. Everything makes me point to a young whisky that was aged in bourbon.
Finish: Medium, empty

In the end, this whisky is not my cup of tea. It eventually soften but lost in my eyes the nose small gourmand notes. Disappointed.

Comment by Borg
Color: Pale yellow
Nose: There is a dominant flavor on the background, old-dried fruit, burned oak, not unpleasant but different.
Also a bit toffee.
taste: sharp in the nose, clearly oak and malt, not pleasant here, like when your wine tastes like cork....(
After: flat taste, oaky.

Looks like something went wrong with the marriage with the cask.
