  1. karloff scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    This was a sample courtesy of peatbogger.
    As mentioned a nice summer sipper and a great price. If I see it I will grab it.
    • Nose

      A light and creamy nose, just like a straight out of the oven fairy cake. Pomegranate seeds, glazed cherries, red apple skins definitely, in fact you can almost taste them. Peatbogger was right, loganberry or Tayberry. This is text book light and fruity.

      If this was finished in a sherry cask then it wasn't for long. This is not a bad thing as it works very well, it is more subtle. Back to those red apples and this time you can taste them.
      I have tasted a lot of very similar whiskies so there is nothing special about it.
      Saying that it is still very enjoyable and it hits the spot. The balance is also good.
    • Finish

      A nice fruity medium finish that has some great light touches.

  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    A care free sipper at a very affordable price.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Light and rather inviting nose.
      Nothing too complex about it, subtle sherry notes, caramel and some faint wood.
      Some crisp but sweet red berries. Lingonberry?
      Tiny touch of citrus.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very neutral texture.
      Rapid build up of peppery spice at the arrival, but it doesn't get out of hand or last very long.
      Quite simple on caramel and some wood notes.
      Sweet, light and dangerously easy drinkable, a perfect hot summer evening dram.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A little short of medium lenght with the main flavour of the body just fading. Stays moderately sweet.
