“I am not a smoker... this is a nice whisky but nothing really huge or special.”
They chose from a shortlist of ten incredible casks, selecting this as the best whisky which could both hold its own as a malt in its own right, and as a perfect accompaniment for a cigar.
This was aged in a sherry butt number 3661, from an unnamed Speyside distillery. The result is rich plummy and is excellent when paired with a medium to full-bodied cigar.
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (87): more than average. honey, dust, wood, flowers, pepper, vanilla.
Palate (88): powerful, oily. honey, toffee, floral, spices, wood, pepper, apples, malt, vanilla.
Finish (88): longer than average. honey, floral, citrus, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this The Cigar Malt 15 year Chieftain's Choice with 88 points over 100.
