    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla
    • Taste
      Spicy, vanilla, bitter oak but not much
    • Finish
      In short, wooden sweetness

  2. Archer scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    The grain is natural, but it's not intrusive.

  3. Moses scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I got that in a set. Would not buy it.
    But I would like to share impressions. Not as bad as I thought. He has his place in his category.

      Come alcoholic, but still fresh notes, a little vanilla, you could smell longer because lemons come through!? .... again gone.
    • Taste

      Is it rather oily or buttery mixed in alcohol / grain, rather sweet combined with hints of vanilla. Yes .... somehow simple but really ok for a blend.
    • Finish
      78 78
      As expected with a grain.
      Not lasting but soft, pleasant, light alcoholic, when fading away. Not bad for a grain / blend.

    PLV good with this whiskey. However, I tasted an older version and a newer one. The newer is almost completely the same in terms of taste, but in my opinion the quality is slightly worse. My rating therefore refers to the newer version.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Fresh Obsalat in the nose adds something metallic and citrus stands out a bit. However altogether very restrained in the nose.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Extremely mild. Light apple pear note. A little malt. At the end a bit sprightly.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Medium long, dry with little oak. Rather weak in the finish.
