Light, dry and definitely a hint of ginger - almost refreshing. Lacks body and finish, but a nice summer whisky.
Just as "Bifter" said; "Young, hot and one dimensional.".
Lots of body and flavour, and very smooth. Tasting notes are the most accurately descriptive I’ve read. Definitely a quality blended whisky that kicks a lot of single malts in the same price bracket into the long grass. I was a single malt whisky snob until trying this whisky - not any more! The heritage of the whisky also supplies a feeling that is as warm as its finish. My rating here reflects the above and the price I paid (?25).
My Fiesta is not as nice as my Rolls Royce
Better than most entry level single malts, despite its branded credentials, it displays a wonderful complexity and sophisticated dryness on the palate, with a hint of peat in the finish. Not too much added caramel and something a bit different - if you are choosing between this and a familiar branded single malt, I would give this one a go
Somewhat thin but quite smooth. It's in the same class as Monkey Shoulder...a bit sweeter though. Very good value so it gets an extra star.
very good. smooth, well rounded.better than a lot of more e
Smooth and very drinkable with a nice flavor and finish
Brought traveling home from the UK , it has that classic going down Smooth then warms you up.
Not a nice as the more expensive bottle.
Bought as a present, my father in law enjoyed it and will buy again apoarently very smooth
A very very good entry level blend. Beautiful light floral flavors, honey, vanilla, and thyme. Great pairing with a cigar or a summery beer.
Young, hot and one dimensional, dominated by bourbon notes.
Really nice. One for the hip-flask.
Fabulous. Really really smooth and delicious, tried it at an airport and was delighted to find it here.
A very smooth whisky indeed, thoroughly enjoyable.
