Day 6, and again my guess failed big time. Not that i have ever had this one but, still. I went for the Bailie Nicol Jarvie blend (and as it appears quite a few other mates went for the same one , and were wrong). Let’s roll:
Palate: Feels rather young. Malty with some white pepper. Delicate sherry sweetness. With a bit of alcohol bite. Very surprised to hear this is supposed to be 18 year old!
Finish: Dark chocolate Bonbons.
What can I say, it’s nice. It’s got some sweet chocolate, and smoke and bits of sherry, but at this price, it really offers too little. You can find so many cheaper and better blends and malts, so I really see no reason to get this one, other than as a gift to someone who isn’t really into whisky, but knows the JW brand. Nice, but pricy.
