  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Actually a very surprising whisky, very fresh and fruity. Especially the nose jumps out, in body and finish the 40% is more recognizable. But overall a pretty pleasant whisky, and a bang for your buck in my opinion.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity, orange, citrus, honey. Very fresh, some vanilla, floral too.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Soft and smooth, fruity, orange. A very little bit tingling, honey, some vanilla and caramel now. A bit thinny mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Soft and smooth, a little bitterness now, orange zest. Honey, sweet, a little vanilla. Not very long.

    Thanks to karloff for the sample.
    It's a 40% NAS, but at least it's uncoloured and unfiltered.
    I usually don't concider to buy bottles I rate below 80, but if I find this at £25 I would happily make an exception.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Light, fresh and fruity.
      Sweet citrus, pear, iced tea.
      Cereal base.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Quite vegetal/green.
      Noticable burst of spice, but it doesn't overpower anything else.
      Right after swallowing I get a hint of some scented detergent or air freshener that I can't name.
    • Finish
      75 75
      That iced tea note returns.
      Very short, but refreshing.

    I have to agree with tomjcollins85. For the price and as far as Nas go this isn't bad at all. I've had a lot worse that cost a lot more.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Orange peel, honey nut cornflakes, lemon grass, green grapes, wet pile of logs, stewed vegetables and apple pie crust sprinkled with sugar.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Nothing special about this but nothing wrong with it either. A no brainer shall we say. Something to sip and not think about too much. It hits a note and stays there. Fruit, honey and grassy flavours.
    • Finish
      76 76
      The finish is short but not bad. Sugar and spice on the death.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with this for the price (I paid £20).

    Nose is has a lot of vanilla, cream and green fruit.
    After a while in the glass, there's more fruit and what I can only describe as my Grandad's old working shead, when I was younger (wood shavings, old paint).

    Mouth continues with the fruit and vanilla. Relatively sweet on first taste. I could not pick out much more, but there were some woody flavours also.

    Finish was short, quite dry.

    When you think of the price and compare this to a modern £1500 Macallan, you're left scratching your head as to modern day prices. A great bargain-basement drink!
