  1. Alexandr_Zhurov scored this whisky 53 points Expert Junior

    I tried the same batch at another time, seemed very sweet and soft, no bitterness, what I tried at the tasting did not like at all, some kind of bitter, absolutely not soft what should be.
    • Nose
      Sweet, closed, dry, well, quite modest, dushes, caramel, lemonade, but in the background, grassy.
    • Taste
      Sweet, creamy, some bitter, not soft.
    • Finish
      Bitter, grassy.

  4. dramspotter scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Doesn't try to be anything other than what it is, there are no harsh notes but no great interesting ones either
    • Nose
      quite faint but some orange and a little spicy warmth
    • Taste
      inoffensive, warming with almost a grain note; cannot tell the Glenfiddich but it seems like a 40% Balvenie
    • Finish
      short but good
