  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not a complex high-flyer, but a thoroughly successful and balanced malt with varied flavors.

    Simply good. Delicious. Fits!
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fresh fruits, pleasant spicy notes, a slight dry hint of sherry, a bit tart chocolate, tangy citrus notes, slightly nutty, subtle green apple, maybe a hint of caramel.

      Overall refreshing and fruity with a subtle spicy touch. A wonderful transition from winter sherry spices to fresh summer fruits.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Spices, slightly darker sherry touch, a little burnt caramel, tart and fresh apple, generally fresher fruit notes, light spicy wood. Somewhat bitter with a subtle tendency towards bitterness. Slight chocolate note.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fruity-tart, pleasantly sweet, with slightly spicy wood.

  3. DannyDram scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An average whisky with a slightly unusual aroma.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Caramel sugar, citrus, maggi, quince, plaster. Almost medium intensity
    • Taste
      85 85
      Quince, white black pepper (aroma beautiful embedded). Well bled out with just under medium intensity
    • Finish
      84 84
      Quince, honey, white pepper are relatively short and for a very long time, an aroma of window putty remains. So long but simple finish
