87 pts.Whisky Advocate: Fall, 2001
Gold color. Delicate aromas of tropical fruits (coconut, pineapple, mango), marshmallow and vanilla. Light in body, with delicate exotic flavors that deliver what the aroma promises. Soft, gentle, delicately creamy finish.
Santé: March, 2004
Smooth, rich, and mouthfilling, with great complexity. Aromas and flavors are fruity and floral with red cherry, sweet orange, lemon, and honey; smooth, clean finish.

Eleven years ago, a young exec from Johnnie Walker quit his job. The result of this apparent premature mid-life crisis didn’t see John Glaser buying a Ferrari or entering a Zen monastery, but resulted in him going into his kitchen and starting to blend whiskies. His first was a liquid that was thick, rich, sweet, and languorous. It was unlike anything we had encountered before. It was grain whisky; mature grain whisky, vatted grain whisky. Hedonism took us to the sea of new possibilities, forced us to rethink what whisky was, excited us with what it could be.
