  1. Falang scored this whisky 72 points Expert Junior

    Great day to day whisky! Great nose! Taste: young wood, pines, not too sweet. Finish is short. Nothing special, but really nice product for such a price.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Nose is extreme good (!) - Sweet candy with fresh Jonagold apples. Hint of bitters. Lovely, like springtime arriving :-)
    • Taste
      76 76
      Taste is stoney and a bit dry. Touch of young wood (pinewood?) with something herbal like the needles of a spruce?
    • Finish
      62 62
      Finish is super short, bit mixture of young wood and varnish. Bit disappointing finish...

  2. Highlander65 scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    Simple, light whisky, I would say "summery".
    • Nose
      Initially herbaceous, then creamy, finally fruity, some balsamic notes, a hint of vanilla
    • Taste
      Light and fresh body, sugary, slightly spicy flavor, a hint of lemon, some bitter notes
    • Finish
      Short, fresh, ethereal

    Room temperature when tasting: 25℃

    Eyes: light gold smelling fragrance. Nose: strong sense of alcohol, cream, nuts, fat sense, butter biscuits, new wine brings plant-like cleanliness, indoor freshener, wooden barrel taste Palate: bitter and spicy, inferior cosmetics, a little The shadow of the grain whisky, a bit of black smoke, wood, and wheat husk. Finish: Medium and short, bitter body. Body: Light, fat.
    Nose: 83/100

    Finish: 60/100
    Body: 80/100
    Overall: 70/100

    Overall: Actually, this smell is quite good. Although it is relatively thin, it has a good sense of coordination. As a result, I almost died on the spot when I entered. The bitterness is too heavy. Basically, I can taste nothing but bitterness.

    Smells like an over sweetened blend on the nose, there is mango and a little pineapple and then a big dollop of butter.
    Smells like grain to me, I know it isn't but that is what it reminds me of.
    Very simple profile, pleasantly sweet, honeyed and buttery and I have to say it improves with time with hints of spice.
    There is a candy sweetness that grows from the start.
    Finish is a little short but pleasant enough

    This is definitely a sipper and one for the drinker with a sweet tooth,

    N: Sweet & fruity lemon candy/sponge cake with some un-baked flour in the middle.
    T: More flour again and with more fruits shooting through in the guise of more candy & fermented sour citrus fruits. A slightly uncomfortable experience overall.
    F: etc,..
    C: I’m not wild about it.
