  1. stefan_PB scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant to drink. No corners, no edges
    • Nose
      82 82
      Wine notes. Fruit - peach and minimally banana are the most recognizable. A slight perfume note. Green vegetables. Wood and pepper and very subtle cocoa.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Wine notes again. Some pepper. Wood again. With a little toffee. The fruit comes later. Apple, peach and some cherry.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Long finish with oak and a bit of sweetness.

  2. Malthead19 scored this whisky 63 points Connoisseur

    COLOR: light white wine / straw

    - a very strongly alcoholic despite the only 41%,
    burning single malt
    - still very young, out of round, immature
    - You don't notice much from the Madeira barrel
    - 35 € for 0.7 L are much too expensive for the one shown
    - you can drink it, and it's definitely better than
    many a cheap blend, but tasty or pleasant
    unfortunately far away
    - unfortunately, neither the LEGEND nor the CELT
    or MYTH really convince .... a shame
    • Nose
      fresh, flowery, citrus, very subtle vanilla
    • Taste
      a very strong, burning start, young and unbalanced, plum, burns for a long time
    • Finish
      medium-long finish;
      long, burning, sharp, almost unpleasant aftertaste

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 63 points Connoisseur

    in my evaluation table, average whiskys get 60 - 70 points;
    The LEGEND is a single malt that burns strongly despite only 41% alcohol - you hardly notice any influences from the Madeira barrel!
    He's the weakest of the Dragon Range!
    [Color] = light white wine
    • Nose
      63 63
      fresh, flowery, subtle vanilla, citrus fruits;
    • Taste
      64 64
      very strong, burning start, noticeable alcohol, fruity (plums), young and unbalanced;
    • Finish
      63 63
      medium-long finish, citrus-fruity; alcoholic burning aftertaste;

  4. Matt80 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Digestive biscuits and freshly cut green apple. A little spirity with a touch of candy shop sweetness. A slight off note with time that's similar to wet cardboard but with hints of brown sugar.

      With water - the sweet shop note is prominent after the biscuit and apple fade away. Freshly baked brioche masks an underlying astringency.
    • Taste
      Salt and pepper initially but turns quite astringent. Sour wood notes like chewing a pencil.

      With water - the salt and pepper is prominent.
    • Finish
      Medium/long, a lingering green apple note develops after the woody pencil note gradually dissipates.

      With water - long, quite woody. The green apple note has completely disappeared

  5. marmeladow scored this whisky 67 points Expert Senior

    bottle code 805910.
    Immature-bitter-spicy. Later some sweetness and fruit in the background. The nose is still the best. According to Michael Jackson (3rd edition 2017), the entire stock is filled month by month, so that changes are easy to explain.
