I am lagging behind but here it is the review of Maverick Drinks’ Whisky Advent Calendar. This is the first day of the calendar and the chosen whisky is Haig Club ( is it the same for everyone?! ).
I have to say that I like the idea of selling grain whisky, I like the idea of the whisky being supported by a relevant ( used-to-be relevant ) football player, I like the idea of selling a nice packaging… but definitively what I don’t like, is the fact that I am being sold young cheap grain whisky for the price of a Balvenie 15 years old for example…
“It is promising but it is also young and still should sleep more years in the cask. I wouldn't buy it... for drinking I mean”
This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (84): more than average. honey, corn, citrus, toffee, vanilla, alcohol. Not bad but a few years more inside a cask won't hurt it neither...
Palate (85): light, smooth. honey, citrus, vanilla, wood, spices, toffee, alcohol.
Finish (85): average. honey, toffee.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Haig Club Single Grain Whisky Single Grain Scotch Whisky with 85 points over 100.
