    At the beginning there is a slightly smoky scent that is somewhat reminiscent of incense. This is followed by traces of pineapple, grain and toast.

  2. DanishDistilled scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Overall very very disappointing whisky. Comparable to a generic supermarket blend.

      Barley malt, solvent, freshly cut grass.

      Hmm. Not that much going on. Sherry Cask? Quite peppery and spicy.

      Hmm. Just tastes like cheap, generic whisky at the end.. Very disappointing for at whisky at this price point.

    A pleasantly rippling stream over mosy stones - a nice entry-level whisky with a good price / performance ratio.
    • Nose

      Heather, honey, vanilla, a little caramel, quite interesting.
    • Taste
      82 82
      More vanilla and caramel, creamy toffee, some oak in the background, only a few fruity notes, gentle entry and then becoming peppery.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Taste with a little more oak notes in the medium-long finish.

    A good value, everyday whisky
    • Nose
      Light smoke with a predominantly floral nose
    • Taste
      Easy drinking, not a lot of body/substance but pleasant nonetheless. Somewhat reminiscent of champagne.
    • Finish
      Dry finish with some biscuity/raisin notes. No extended complexity to speak of.

    A nice malt whisky with a sweet character and you can taste vanilla and herbs.
