  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    no idea what it costs, tastes very cheap, more than 10 € are paid too much
    • Nose
      mild, vanilla, caramel, quite pleasant, but very average, uninteresting
    • Taste
      Caramel, slightly peppery, somewhat spritzig / artificial
    • Finish
      sweet at first, then bitter (rather unpleasant)

    easy to drink, but nothing special
    • Nose
      light aroma with hint of caramel.
      hardly tears in the glass
    • Taste
      alcohol tickel on the tongue, hint almond/caramel
    • Finish
      very short

    A decent, inexpensive Irish blend, often with Tumbler as a gift pack available!
    • Nose
      fruity, flowery, sweet, slightly spritig;
    • Taste
      Fresh fruity onset, malt, caramel, bitter "Grain note", clearly young;
    • Finish
      short fruity finish, hints of vanilla;

    I'm guessing a pretty youthful mix of malts and grains.
    Rather unspectacular, but is easy to drink (because it's easy to knit)
    Maybe a good whiskey, to introduce someone to the subject and to show how broad the flavors and tastes can be diversified, if you then presents a more complex malt.
    For me, a little too tired on the chest
    • Nose
      At first just sweet, but for me no fruity sweetness. Later you can see a little sweet malt. After the first sip, the alcohol has clearly stung out in the aroma (as with the disinfectant)
    • Taste
      Sweet, maybe a touch of oak, but only briefly. The spice on the tongue I would attribute to the alcohol. A nuance of a fruitiness that can not be assigned to me (too flabby for it)
      For me, the alcohol sharpness overrules the wateriness. Overall, rather "unspectacular"
    • Finish
      Short, briefly warm, a touch of fruit or flowers is left hanging for a moment. But I can not classify because too weak.

    Pleasant and harmless caramel candy for beginners, but the finish ailing ... but also costs very little!
    • Nose
      Caramel, underlaid with light alcohol art
    • Taste
      still caramelized alcohol, you could also crystallize a few fruit notes
    • Finish
      and that's when the problem begins: on top of the palate, the candy sticks with floral aspects, even on the upper part of the tongue a bit. Otherwise, the whole edge and the middle of the tongue remain just a watery feeling, the lower part of the throat remains spared of any subtleties as well.
