I bought this without ever drinking whiskey before. It was recommended by my wife's uncle. Well........ to my absolute delight, I loved it. It was nice on the pallet and didn't blow my head off. One sip and the flavors keep on coming for a good while after. Looks like this whiskey is now my regular whiskey.
Subtle on the nose. Very Smooth. I agree that it is great for beginners looking to move on from blends. I give this a 5 Star taking into account the low price. Enjoy!
Mildly sweet, pleasant, a little bland, smooth and short finish, probably would buy Macallan 12, Springbank 10, or Tullibardine 228 instead next time
Was introduced to whiskey by Woodford double oak. Hated every other whiskey I tried. Until I tried the Balvenie Doublewood. Love it just as much as Woodford double oak bourbon, but definitely a different and unique taste.
This whiskey is superb! It will teach you the meaning of what dried fruit notes are and the nose on it alone will keep you going for hours. The wonderful oak stays on the tongue forever. Trust a fellow whiskey connoisseur just buy this whiskey you won't regret it!
