3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. MaltMartyr scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The overall presence of identifiable flavors and scents, combined with traditional aspects experienced in single malt. This has features that can be appreciated, but the finish, although flavorful, lacks depth.
    • Nose
      87 87
      sweet tarts, brown sugar, cured belt leather, citrusy lemony mandarin orange, butterscotch, and some lily of the valley perfume like notes
    • Taste
      85 85
      cherry cough drops, licorice stick, coca cola, dwindling campfire smoke, citrusy calamondin,
    • Finish
      87 87
      prickly pepper, bitter cherry, tobacco, cardamom, the taste resonates on the sides of the palate, but increases to the center over time, perhaps, too slow or minimal for some but it lingers citrus short to medium towards back. Food can impact what may be misperceived as a short finish; definitely drink before dinner.

  2. Ganga scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    The problem I had with this whisky was the great big hole in the middle of the palate. It was very strange as the sides of my tongue lit up but the center seemed to be blank.

  3. AbelSoul scored this whisky 99 points Newbie

    Best whisky I've ever tasted. Very smooth with a slight sweetness.
