Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine
Nose Malty. Rich and creamy. Lots of toffee. Mint chocolate. Fresh and lively. Cardamom. Quite complex.
Palate Round and sweet. Good balance with the nose. The same rich mint chocolate note. A precise oak frame ties up the rich aromatic profile. Liquorice and raisins as well.
Finish Lingering, fruity, sensuous.
Comments A complex whisky, which needs time and attention to release its richness.

Was a big fan of the 'Tay Dram' part of the River collections when released. Thought would give this a try as can't get the 'Tay Dram' anymore. Did not disappoint and a new personal favourite!

Simply divine, you can taste the tobacco notes in it which is great when paired with a good cigar, the wife does not like it so I guess it's all mine( evil laugh ).

An excellent aroma with a brilliant finish

Wow. I tried a glass of this tonight - I've been meaning to buy a bottle for a while now. Thick, rich and sweet. Really, really nice.

I've been waiting for this for a while and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed the Grand Reserva when it was around and I believe that this replaces it. Great dram in a nicely presented box

Sit down, enjoy and try to understand what this whisky is all about. This isn't a first shot whisky. It is the stuff of whisky genius. I even get tempted to start smoking a cigar... 2nd bottle is on his way.

Second bottle now - this is one of best whiskies ever!

Was bought a bottle of the previous Cigar Malt a year or two ago. One of the best I've tasted (rich, dark, full of flavour) and absolutely perfect with a good cigar.
