Wine Enthusiast 93 points – Featured as a blend of Johnnie Walker’s rarest whiskies, this Scotch billows with sweet cigar smoke from the very first sip. Underneath that, look for vanilla, oak and dry cocoa, finishing dry and spicy with cigar wrapper, allspice and clove, plus a mouthwatering saline note. – K.N. (Dec 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points – (Tried & True Award)- Deep amber/chestnut brown color. Estery, astringent nose is full of red cherry, red plum, sweet oak, vanilla bean, parchment. Flavor profile is off-dry, nutty, toasty, sappy, cedary, mutlilayered, complex, mature. Aftertaste lingers a long time in the throat and is fruity, ripe, smoky.
