    This one is rather light and fresh than heavy. Though it made it into my list of daily drams. I like this older edition much better than the new one at 40% abv (round bottle).
    • Nose
      Citrus and ripe fruits, malty
    • Taste
      Citrus fruits, little sweetness, oily and liquorice, just little oak notes
    • Finish
      Medium short

    What he promises in the nose and the first taste is quickly lost and ends in a weak finish. But for a 12-year-old but acceptable.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A sweet product, easy, sweet, very very simple. Good for its price, but lacks power.
    • Nose
      Green apple, caramelized apples, some wood and spices (vanilla, cinnamon)
    • Taste
      Very sweet ... Apple tatin, caramel, pear, vanilla, wood. No thickness and a short length.
    • Finish
      Average, on vanilla sugar, apple.

  7. HunterRomario scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Oranges, Christmas spices, a little flowers, wood. I have such impressions of a sweetness. (84 b)
    • Taste
      The flavor is perfectly matched with the scent. Rich blend of oranges, spices, wood (well thought out). Spicy. (84 b)

  8. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Fantastic nose, but the taste can't deliver..
    • Nose
      Tingling nose feeling, from the spirity aromas. Very fruity, apricot, peach and a hint of lemon.
    • Taste
      This whisky are very smooth, but lacks lot of flavors. I can feel yeast, little grain feeling. And of course there is fruits also. But I want more layers of flavors.
    • Finish
      Short finish, woody and leafy notes.
