  1. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nice old blend with a quite weak nose, a very sweet taste and sweet finish which was medium long.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nice and friendly, just a nice whisky, nothing special but good to go.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Initially quite some alcohol, disappearing pretty quick. Fruity, yellow fruits, musty, some caramel sweetness, licorice, linoleum.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pretty sparkling initially, oily, smooth now, fruity, some licorice, apples, a tad musty.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Sweet, licorice, middle long, a little sparkling.

  6. Ostap scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The fact that it is a blend can be guessed only by the stinginess of the ingredients in taste and aftertaste. Pretty decent work. Slightly sherry whiskey.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Dried mushrooms, sherry notes, tropical fruits, iris, vanilla, square cookies, drizzled with condensed milk, notes of drying oil, a little dust.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fruit, wax, sherry, iris and vanilla, nuts.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Fruit lollipops, vanilla, iris, sherry, condensed milk, between short and medium.
