Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland
Reviewed September 23, 2019
Interesting finish, kind of lifts up at the end, which I think is because of the bubblyness from the champagne? I don't know. Enjoyable dram, but I wouldn't pay the $300 the VA ABC is looking for. Very smooth with minimal burn. Palate was sweet with honey and maybe a white grape? I'd also venture to say there was a floral taste as well. Quite nice and I liked it better than the 18, but certainly beyond my price range. The box is pretty cool. It spins open and makes a great presentation overall, which is the kind of vibe they're going for. That this spirit will enhance any mood, night, etc, and I think it'd be something nice to share with people who are fancy and would toast with champagne, but instead, the whiskey connoisseur gives them this and they'd all enjoy it and discuss how it's different.
