This a really nice complex nose. Initially malt and fruit with a bit of sweet pears. Christmas cake, lots of dried fruit. Black coffee and brandy cream like you get at christmas. In the background there's a very light wood smoke. Superb

Taste: ChocolatePepper
Balanced arrival and slightly sweet, full bodied throughout. This is much more simple than the nose, but enjoyable nonetheless. Black pepper and chocolate are the predominant flavours.

Finish: Dark ChocolateSpicesOilOak
Long and intense. Dark chocolate, mixed spices. A slight oily smokiness. Some oak showing through.

Comment:
I'd never had this version of JW and I've not really liked some of their other releases in the past. I'm not a fan of that oily graininess you get in grain whisky, but thought I'd give this a shot since it's all malt. I have to say I'm super impressed. The nose is great and shows really well. On the palate it's intense and well rounded. The finish is long and warming. I've seen some reviews which said that the pepperiness was acrid and overpowering but I don't see it in the bottle I got. Perhaps it's something that they have worked out with newer batches. The price is comparable to a lot of higher end supermarket malts but the quality leaves some of them in the dust. Great stuff.

The best of the line-up to me, by far. Great intensity of mostly Highland and Speyside malts on the nose, with nicely balanced barrel character, a noble touch of "old" mustiness and hints of peat smoke.
Clearly showing the Malt Blend pedigree. Excellent richness and texture on the palate, unparalleled by any of the grain-based JWs, even though the Platinum 18Y comes close in terms of richness.
Quite a classic and perfect blend, also a great bargain to its very end. I hear Taiwan is still officially receiving this blend.

Nosing:
dry fruits, strong sweety - sour
Taste: Complex. Dry candied fruits, spiciness, hint of oak, sweet honey

Finish: long, sweet but smoky

Comment: Complex blended malt which you can find different everytime. Sometimes you can feel more of those sweet malts influence in fruitiness and honey sweetness but sometimes more of those smoky malts - spiciness and smoke. Alkohol well hidden. Very good one! But quite expensive as for blended malt.
