    The 40% will remain an eternal mystery to me here. Every percent less water would certainly have earned one point more in the rating.

    Vanilla, caramel, fruity and sweet in taste
    Medium-long, slightly drier finish
    A great whiskey

  6. Drk Neknul scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Extremely light whiskey, unfortunately a little watery. Nose and palate are nice, with associations of shortbread, vanilla and light fruits. The finish is the least convincing, the malt disappears after a short time, as if it had fallen off a cliff. A slightly buttery finish remains.

    Tasted by sample.

  7. Sandman scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Apple pie, peach, brown sugar, grapes, ginger, lemon, pear and pineapple

  8. craide scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Light, tasty whiskey. Not very complex and unfortunately a bit too monotonous for me.
    Too bad, certainly not an option at the price.

      Starts with a lot of citrus, sour fruits and grass / hay. Appears slightly fresh, although a little musty. In addition honey-sweet and a little oak.
      With a little time it goes more towards sourdough with fruit notes of pears, green apples. With vanilla, caramel and a few baking flavors.
      Great aromas are formed, nevertheless appear somewhat flat and lack the kick.
    • Taste

      Soft, creamy but also slightly watered down. Fruit and vanilla are in the foreground. Light seasoning that could have been a little more.
      Unfortunately, there is also a lack of kick and variety here.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long finish, some milk chocolate, coffee,
