    Meh...

    It's not a bad whisky. It is easy to drink but lacks complexity - I would almost call it boring. Might be a good whisky for a beginner.
    • Nose
      Sweet, mild a bit of fruit.
    • Taste
      Very mild, a little sweetness, taste of alcohol but without any punch.
    • Finish
      Short. A bit of alcohol and I kinda get the taste of biting the end of a pencil (?)

    Colour: light gold/straw
    Nose: neat: light, floral, touches of grass, sweet caramel candy, slight touch of almonds. with water: sweetness replaces the floral notes as the more prominent note, still maintains the remaining profile.
    Taste: neat: sherry sweetness, vanilla, gingery, a little too much oak. with water: bring more of the spicy/gingery notes, tones down the sweetness and wood becomes even more present.
    Finish: dry, on wood overtones, relatively short but with the sweet note going last. with water: nothing really changes.
    Comments: good whisky but the wood somewhat overpowers the spirit. Still, for a 10 year old I was positively surprised, overall quality is good.
    MY SCORE: Recommended

    • Nose
      Surprisingly fresh and floral start with hay, potpourri and grated lemon zest. Acts thereby quite "Lowland-like". Then follows a clear, nutty malty, oak, oat milk and some chocolate.
    • Taste
      Oak, floral notes, grated lemon zest, malty accents, sweet notes and chocolate. Overall, quite youthful.
    • Finish
      Long, nutty and chocolaty.

    For your guests who think they know about whisky, if you are particularly perverse. Otherwise, dilute with maple syrup for a good liquor.
    • Nose
      Alcoholic, fresh and lemony, slightly woody
    • Taste
      burn the tongue. Honey and lemon in the background
    • Finish
      Long, amer

    • Nose
      Honey, malt, wood, pinch of spice and fruit, cinnamon. Nice, cool scent. (83 b)
    • Taste
      I was expecting her to be lagging behind the promising odor, but she could keep up. Lightly sweet, malt, mush, oak tannins. Only the flavor spoils a little. (82 b)
