    Easy drinking whisky without blemish and blame. Very easy to access, tastes clean and pleasing. Class for beginners and with a great price-performance ratio!

      Short, a bit dry, a bit pepper, a bit citrus...

  4. DistiLesha scored this whisky 63 points Expert Senior

    An exclusively cocktail drink, there is no interest in drinking in its pure form.
    N: 13 T: 15 F: 15 B: 20
    • Nose
      Barley porridge, beer, sour mash, wormwood
    • Taste
      Harsh, acetylene, disgusting, tastes like a blend you drink with grain alcohol
    • Finish
      a little woody, grain alcohol

  5. ishi scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Dusty, pears, light pickles, dry gingerbread. Caramel, harsh.

  6. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 45 points Expert Senior

    Can you already drink? That's ok for this price, but expectations should not be too high
    • Nose
      Slightly sweet, some fruit, alcohol. Reminds something about Obstler
    • Taste
      Milder than Obstler, alcohol remains light, some fruit, some malt. After that nothing
    • Finish
      In short, fruit, alcohol and gone

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    solid thing in the entry-level NAS class. Can you drink well, but nothing to break your head.
    • Nose
      You notice the youthful, strong fruity, a little more New Make Association, the fruits are a little pear, also a hint of citrus, actually a little peach, a little malt, a touch of yeast and a little vanilla.
    • Taste
      light, a bit thin, some pepper, a little bit metallic,
    • Finish
      slight bitterness, short, some fruit, some malt, a hint of mint.

  8. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Well, it's the kind of whisky you can take to a party and you will not be sorry to disappear, but at the same time you will not mind having to drink it. And if it is possible to get it under 600 CZK. That's how I sometimes do :)
    • Nose
      Sweet sour perhaps with a hint of vinegar. But otherwise white wine, fruit and camphor, and woody spices.
    • Taste
      Pretty smooth, acidic, but thank God not for vinegar. Somewhat oily. Easier easier.
    • Finish
      A bit tough, fruity-irony and short.
