    I like it quite well for price and age, better than some standard with more famous names.

      Especially in this segment, the seasoning is probably not for everyone, I like it.

  8. Floor scored this whisky 69 points Member Senior

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

  9. Caballa scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    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.
