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.
