Sir Edward's Blended Whisky, 40%

Price: $14 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

From the perfumed nose to the sweet and short finish, this blend doesn't really put a foot wrong, but it's shy and unadventurous.

Clearly well made, well balanced, and quite acceptable, it has a perfumed black currant sherbet nose, some slight but enjoyable blueberry, grape, and prune notes and a soft sweet conclusion. On its own, all fine: but it gets lost when in company.
