Nosing: Fruit Apple citrus Oak Spices Nuts AppleCaramel Sweet Pear Peach Plum Cinnamon

Taste: Oak Fruit citrus Spices Malt Nuts Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Caramel Sweet

Finish: medium oaky and malty with traces of fruit and orange

Comment: For a No Age Statement whisky, this Gold Reserve is incredibly smooth. There is a slight hint of pepper on the palate at the beginning, but overall, it is very pleasant to taste. This whisky is worth trying! One of my top favourite single malts, I admit))

Comment:
A very good whisky, directly in point of view on mine tastes.
Light, fruity and a little bit of gentle smoke and sweet. Well... what else? Do I know? Maybe something like almond or marzipan. The smell is similar to 15yo but it haves smaller portion of smoke then 15yo and taste it's not so deep. If You like Cardhu and think about buy then, You shell buy this one because it's worth the price.

Nosing: Banana Tropical Fruit Apple Vanilla Cake Dark Chocolate Coffee

Taste: Sweet Malt Fruit

Finish: Herb Coffee Spices

Comment:

Very sweet, easy to drink, wonderfully fruity whisky that as of today: I adore. The end of it has some coffee, and the first time I had it I remmember a distinct aftertaste of nuts.
