World Whiskies Awards 2009
World's Best Blended Whisky

Delicate, light and perfumy. Floral and fruity. Smooth and velvety on the palate with soft spices and sweet oak notes. Perfect balance with sensuous lingering finish. Exquisite Martine Nouet

Know someone who believes that blends can never be as good as single malt? Give them a taste of this. A work of art and a delightful mix of age and beauty Dominic Roskrow

Bold nose with the usual caramel and vanilla plus thyme, leather. Tastes of clover, toast and oak. Loooong finish. William Dowd

Heavy nose with some fruit and a hint of smoke; old fashioned; hint of blackcurrant with water, and in the taste, which is sweet and caramel-like Charles MacLean

Sharp dark fruitiness of cognac-cured cigar tobacco. A tingling spiciness then luxuriant creamy middle with tea biscuits and butter. Caramel, and surprisingly, salt. Good solid whisky Davin de Kergommeaux

Rich, lengthy flavours that even with dilution with water, coat your mouth and keep your tongue titillated for more than 10 seconds LeNell

Gives an impression of opulence, rich and rewarding, with fine leather, tobacco, soft brown sugar and dried fruit. A contemplative dram that deserves full attention Robin Laing
