    Toffee smell, tastes not as expected and ends in a liquorice finish

  4. Caballa scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    Its light, dry and somewhat smoky character goes well with tapas or with spicy vegetarian dishes.
    • Nose
      Soft and very aromatic. Notes of honey wax, malted barley tracks and roots with a hint of cut hay.
    • Taste
      Notes of heather, roots and moist earth, notes of mellow sweetness with gingerbread, a hint of rum with peat malt.
    • Finish
      End is quite long, with winter spices and ginger, with notes of cereals.

  8. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a solid easy-drinking dram
    the alcohol could be better absorbed
    if someone does not like bitter and bitter, he should be careful here; these notes later come to the fore
    tolerates 43% of water
    • Nose
      Caramel (so Rollo) and becomes more, light vanilla, light sherry (gentle), dried herbs, popcorn, apple (Braeburn?), Dark malt, the alcohol tingles a little, sulfur / musty, pepper, light oak, milk chocolate, minimal smoke (so cold ashes)
      with water: more caramel, paper / cardboard, light liquorice
    • Taste
      full and somehow heavy on the palate
      Kramell (so Toffeestyle), light raisin, spicy, pears, nut chocolate, you can also notice the alcohol here
      later light oak, dark malt, lemon, sherry, dark malt, brown apple, light pepper, becomes tart
      with water: very spicy
    • Finish
      medium long
      light sherry, oak becomes more, spicy, nougat?, tart, dark chocolate so 50%, caramel
