Bain's is the first South African single grain whisky, made in Wellington at the James Sedgwick distillery. Bain's has made an impressive debut in the UK, picking up a Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2010 and a Silver at the International Spirits Competition before crowning that with the title of World's Best Grain Whisky at the World Whisky Awards.

    Quite a bit of toffee and vanilla but a very nice and moreish whisky. This is my first experience of Bains and it certainly won't be the last. A good introductory grain whisky - not overly complex and very good value for money.

    I enjoyed Johnny Walker Black before they dropped it to 80 proof - a huge mistake. I have looked for an affordable whiskey that was 86 proof or more and found it - today. Fortunately I bought 3 bottles. It is nice, smooth, full -bodied. Glad I found it. Full marks SA.

    I haven't drank this dram for quite a while. That is good because I have a better appreciation for whisky now. I love Peaty whiskies so have been enjoying Laphroaig 10yrs and Three Ships 10yr and 5 yr. It is nice to have something on the other side of the spectrum than my love for peat, and this is where you strike gold with Bain's. Can't escape the sweet smooth vanilla/buttery taste, which is awesome, and then the it goes to the back of my tongue, the more "traditional" whisky taste blends in with it. Yes, I am South African and biased towards this whisky, but good is good ;) This whisky is made by the same guy who makes the Three Ships range in the same distillery/winery, so for real value for money you have to try the Three Ships range too.

    Toffee, vanilla and coconut on the nose, a little raspberry fruit comes through giving a"coconut ice" sweet flavour which is smooth, warm and pleasant

    I love Whisky and this is one of the best I've ever had. Although strictly speaking it's more bourbon than whisky with its burnt oak and vanilla undertones. Sat here sipping as I type and the after glow is second to none. No better way to finish your day.

    Something different. Difficult where to place or compare to because it's not trying to replicate what Scotland or American whiskies do. It's made of grain and its sunny in south african - I really think you can taste that. Verdict Floral and soft fade. Usual for a whisky Very good entry level that is crowd pleasing.

    Not your usual whisky! This is more of an after dinner whisky in my opinion. And definitely add water or ice. I enjoyed it thoroughly, but the flavor threw me for a loop. Very very bold notes of fruit followed by licorice. Heavy body. More like a brandy or digestif in it's delivery. Very impressive and enjoyable but not a gift for someone who doesn't like to explore, has an open mind, or says they know and love all whisky but are only thinking of Scotch, Irish or American.

    Got the first bottle through the club about a year ago. Ordered next two from London. Found it in the states. Bought five more bottles. Obviously I don't care for this whiskey.

    A real surprise, smooth and very drinkable - a recent convert to Grain Whisky - this is up there with the best and will be bought and bought again. Buttery tones come through, silky texture, with a lite bite at the finish.

    One of the most unusual whiskeys I have ever tasted but definitely one of my favorites! Warm, smooth, buttery with distinctive toffee and caramel notes. This whiskey goes great with chocolate and desserts. Try it, you''ll love it!

    Bainskloof and the surrounding wellington area is a special place for me.Single malt whiskey is a drink I really enjoy.SO to find a Smooth Whiskey like Bain's encompassing the warm ,sunny Cape Boland( which is essentially a wine region) has been quite a find.I guess it comes a no surprise that it is an award winning whiskey as the ingredients must be top quality from the fertile region of the Cape

    Just visited South Africa, the food was a complete surprise. So good, such high standards and then I found Bains Whisky. A superb whisky that easily compares with the best Scotch Malt whiskies. Well done South Africa, you guys don't know what you have there. The tourist capital of the world I think...
