  1. djmaxliving scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    The nose was promising but again the taste let it down, with water the taste improved. overall just give this one a miss, for the price you are wasting your cash.
    • Nose

      Some green pear, peaches, grass, malty, wine gums, pepper and dried fruits. Decent nose, although it feel more like a 12 year old ?
    • Taste
      82 82
      Starts quite thin, then the spice intensity moves in, some green fruit notes and oak. Water help tame the spice.
    • Finish

      Short with a light oak sappy. Not much going on.
