Matisse Old Whisky Review
Distillery: Matisse (Independent Bottler)
Expression: Matisse Old
Category: Blended Scotch
Hey sexy, you’re quite complex for a convenience store scotch.
Do I know you from somewhere?
You may think I say that to every malt on the shelf (and I do) but in this case it’s not just a pickup line.
The Old Matisse is quite similar in taste to Johnnie Walker Black with some subtle, but important differences.
It’s less oily and peppery than JW Black, but the malt is crisp, the chocolate overtones are chewy, and the smoke is there throughout.
It’s a tad more expensive than some of the other offerings we reviewed but this funky-ass blend is worth the extra NT$30.
