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.
