  1. Guenther70 scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    Nicely balanced Speyside malt.
    • Nose
      Honey and vanilla caress the nose. Nutty sherry and a delicate floral scent emerge.
      Very fine and balanced;
    • Taste
      Vanilla and honey, dry sherry, light peppercorns, very gentle peat smoke and a floral touch round off everything;
    • Finish
      Soft dry sherry with dark chocolate that will soon burn out. Vanilla and honey stay there for a long time.
      Towards the end, some peat comes into play

    Very thin, a good option for people who don't really like whisky because there is nothing wrong with it, but for the price, no way. Shocked that Horst Luening called this 'a masterpiece'.
