Reviews for King Car Whisky - Conductor
Not good
I found this to be very harsh. Lots of burn following a very brief fruity entry. I liked what little I have tried of Kavalan but this is one conductor I won’t be following.

Excellent
Really great whisky, rich and flavourful, quite fruity, quite complex and very easy drinking. I think comparisons, and complaints, with regards to it not being smokey are a little unfair. It isn't a peated whisky thus it will not have those notes. this doesn't mean it isn't a really good whisky - it is, I highly recommend you try it. (And this is coming from a fan of the peated whiskies)

Not bad at all
I got a sample with my last order and I quiet liked it. I would never buy a bottle, I am more into peated whisky in general, even I really like Japanese, but this one is ok. Better than dalwinie, craggenmore, bushmill and stuff like that. It is fresh and sweet with an exotic fruitiness and some malt at the end.
I personnaly feel it misses some complexity, smoke, dryness (like Amrut Peated for instence...) to be very good.

Really attractive - floral! - CORRECTION
Nose: honeysuckle, broom and sherbert. Sweet in the mouth (but isn’t a VSOP?). No huge aftertaste, but entirely attractive: certainly not “old tyres” as some otherwise attractive drams can present. Definitely one for my conductor friends - there’s something in a silly name after all!

Little or no taste, aroma, or finish
I will preface this that I am used to Scotch and this is only my second taste of a whiskey from outside the U.K. This one had very little flavor or taste. It was very smooth. I was very disappointed in this whiskey since it tasted watered-down, but my wife (who is not a big Scotch fan) liked it. I apologize if this sounds sexist but this might be a good dram for women or someone new to whiskey. I would not call this bad as there was nothing objectionable about it, but it tasted the most like water if any whiskey I ever tasted.

Good, not great
Very good but falls short of mindblowing. Overly sweet for me, with loads of dark fruit notes. Very easy drinking but it gets a little cloying. For me, the bog standard Kavalan Single Malt is better. Much more of a unique style, with tropical fruit notes.

Excellent!!
I love the diversity of whiskies out there. From soft, gentle to harsh and smokey ones.
My favourite is the Irish Knappogue Castle but also Ardbeg, J.W blue label,... I accidentally discovered this one and have to say I love it. The complex yet gentle, fruity aroma and taste is wonderful. They won several awards and rightly so. An Excellent whiskey!

tasted many
Similar to bruchladich black art. Not at that level. At around 100 per bottle worth it.
