  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    My first Welsh, courtesy of karloff.
    Really refreshing and enjoyable.
    Never given this distillery much of a thought but at £40 I would definitely buy a bottle if I come across it.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet, very sweet. And very fruity.
      Almost Tokai like.
      Honey melon. Honey. Pear, apricot.
      Light and yummy.
      The fruit mix in it self is pretty complex, but I'm not sure I would call the whisky complex, because it's hard to find anything else. Maybe a hint of strawberry bubble gum.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Creamy, almost thick, with a nice follow up of the nose.
      It is almost an over fortified sweet yellow desert wine.
      Some spice arriving midway, along with some cask/wood notes.
      46% works well, it's right where you are reminded that you are drinking whisky, not just a fruit juice.
    • Finish

      A little short of medium.
      Fruit and spice continues, the wood goes slightly dry.

    Yeah, you can do it if you want a good NAS for little money. Not colored, not chilled and bottled with 46% in my preferred drinking strength, it fulfills all the requirements for me. But then you can already tell his youth, especially in the finish.

  5. WimLambrechts scored this whisky 79 points Member Senior

    Tasty and not bad for the price.
    Mainly pineapple and sweetness.
    • Nose
      83 83
      alcoholic, with a present touch that leans towards sweet fruit.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Pineapple immediately comes to mind.
      Every time you recognize something different, this taste comes up again. Slightly too bright.
    • Finish
      79 79
      The fruity shimmer for quite a long time.

  6. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Sweet and complex, and unique. I like sweet whiskys, so it perfect for me.
    • Nose
      Very sweet fruits like honeydew and pear.
    • Taste
      Fruity sweet compote with honey
    • Finish
      Dry and fruity, pretty long

  7. karloff scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    The last time I had this whisky was over 10 years ago and I rather liked it. Now with a more experienced palate it is ok, an easy sipper, a good price and something to impress your friends with who think all whisky comes from Scotland. Wales? Really?
    • Nose
      84 84
      The nose has an artificial smell to it but it doesn't spoil it, it's quite sweet, lots of wine gums or sport mixtures. Potpourri, carnation flowers and glazed cherries. It depends what you want from a whisky but this to me smells like refill finishing.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The taste is what you would expect from the nose but it's not always the case. This is a very easy sipper, light and fruity with a little spice. More of those wine gums, some pear and those light Victoria plums.
    • Finish
      75 75
      A short to medium finish and that artificial note I found on the nose finds itself on the finish but it's not as pleasant

    Sweet nose, aspects of dessert wine. Very sweet in the body, caramelly. A bit more spice on the finish. A pleasant surprise. Not one for every occasion, but a whisky to have with pudding.
