    Got this one served at a Thai air flight. Very soft without any depth. Not alot of taste and no finish.

    Whisky number 8 of the recent batch of 12 affordable blends I’m rating. Nose: Mild sherry backed up by reasonable oak, very noticeable grain component, a little malt, slight citrus and vanilla. Basically it has the aromas that a workhorse grain whisky can pull out of refill casks. It has a reasonably enveloping nose that reminds me a bit of JW Red Label, but it is warmer and softer. Palate: A little bit of a let-down after the promising nose. Light cereal, malt, nuttiness, vanilla and some "fruit" of undetermined origin, but it's a little thin. Finish: Medium with a tendency to turn sour/bitter/metallic as it fades. Not a notable blended scotch until you add a dash of water and it suddenly blooms. The nose is reduced in intensity while the overall character stays the same, but the palate is much improved. Light honey sweetness is unlocked and the finish is also better, with the metallic/sourness morphing into a firm (but tired) oak influence. It also works well with cola or soda but not quite as well with dry ginger. I was going to give this a grudging single star until I added water, which brings it up 2, just. Not what I'd call a great dram, but treated the right way it's acceptable. "Acceptable" : 2 stars
