  5. xixit scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    Easily drinkable and totally forgettable. A daily-dram perhaps. Too sweet for my tastes though.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fresh, fruity. Mixed apples, red grapes, white sugar, hint of dunnage warehouse. With water and time, becomes sweeter, a hint of Danish pastry.
    • Taste
      Fresh, sweet, fruity. Mixed fruitsalad, apples, pears, bananas, oranges, grapes, etc. with a drizzle of sugar on top. With water and time, a few drops of lemon have appeared.
    • Finish
      Short to medium, on fruity sweetness.
