  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Gold.
    Nose: Fresh, oaky, slightly fruity, round and on
    heather.
    Taste: Fresh, oaky, slightly floral and sweet, with some honey and
    cooked apples. The finish is medium to long, thicker than expected, fruity,
    slightly spicy and on toffee.
    General Impression: A nice made and satisfying
    dram

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Looks young, grassy, ​​malt / grain, subtle fruit after strawberry and grapefruit and orange, pencil / oak, behind it the sweet vanilla and toffee, completely removed coconut

    Taste: mild and light, cereals and slightly fruity, with some spicy oak

    Finish: rather short, now the sweetness begins, caramel / toffee, with dry oak

    Conclusion: an average malt, which offers little, even if it is crafted good. Overall, rather disappointing - 80 points

    Essential and effective, is a straightforward and simple. Scents of vanilla and sweetness of the barrel burbon, fruit candy, strawberry. Then barley, exotic fruits, sweet lime and citrus candy. Final very soft and long

    It's ok.
    • Nose
      Young spirit.  Grassy.  Vanilla cake.  Banana pudding.  Green apples.
    • Taste
      Apples again, and more vanilla.  Oak.  Fresh grass.  Honeycomb.
    • Finish
      Medium.  Hay and honey.  Fading vanilla, and is that coconut?
