4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.10 points.

  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty nose and taste. Lack of finish spoils the big picture. I recommend to use it in the summer.

    • Nose
      87 87
      The aroma is quite standard: jams, baked apples, slightly strawberries and sweet cherries. It's sweet, but before the Christmas pie does not hold out. Rather, roll with jam. Feelings of spirituousness and not very complex structure are felt.
      A few matches, but not disgusting.
    • Taste
      78 78
      The taste is quite strong according to the flavor. Expected sweet pastries. Then vanilla. A bit one-sided. Then there is a failure in taste. Emptiness. Water and alcohol. The bitterness of the burnt tree.

      Aftertaste
      Once again, sweetness and vanity return. Cherrystone. Tree.

  4. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The sample was tested blindly - without reference to the price, there were only initial data that 90 bottles of this specimen

    Color - initially in the photo from Andrew in the subject, I was delighted with the bourbon restraint because of the very pale color (for myself, I had already decided that this is MY), but when I received the scales, I saw that the color was not so pale (apparently the sun was good illuminated) and everything is possible in our kingdom, a sherry refill or a combination of bourbon + any wine is more than possible, although still the bourbon of the first pouring also gives a similar color :)

    Balance - 90

    Total came out on confident 89, well, maybe a little more on a half point

    The fortress is tested from a blender glass, it is very good at it to make the first approach along the fortress (barrel-sky), freshly declared itself powerful enough and confidently - it means barrel. Subsequently, after a little standing and breathing, the nose was not so aggressive and it was possible to conclude that a moderate barrel fortress was 50-53%, which was confirmed during testing - it was very comfortable to drink.
    Age - in the aroma and taste of whisky played and felt that he should be at least an adult
    Total - thoughts came to Ben Nevis, but after starting to study the given technical parameters, the WB went to a specific Bunn, which most suited TK.

    On the money - let it be 400 UAH, but the question itself is not quite right, because whisky which only came out has the most honest price, and when a lot of positive reviews appear, it starts to grow in price, and if it is also a release that is collectible, then in general there is no point in discussing the price.
    • Nose
      90 90
      quite dense, on the first nose honey and honeycomb, a little plum, some kind of sugacity like a sherbet, with time the plum becomes bigger and at the end apricot is a little showing up, everything is pretty good playing and poured. At the same time, there is a certain core and character that smoothly leads to the thought of Highland, which the overwhelming majority of whisky from Speyside do not have.
    • Taste
      90 90
      already much less fruit, but a lot of minerals and salt, a little raw cardboard and wood, an industrial theme, but for some reason the taste does not seem so assertive as aroma.
    • Finish
      88 88
      average duration, again salt and minerals, I would like more
