  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not a very well balanced whisky (too much citrus fruit), but an enjoyable dram for a Sunny sunday late afternoon though.
    • Nose
      Lots of citrus fruit. Lemon and grapefruit. Quite alcoholic in the nose.
    • Taste
      Fresh and clean. Estery. Peel-zest. Paprika and mint. Some pepper as well.
    • Finish
      Lomg and lingering. The sweet citrus fruit remains for a long time.

  2. PierreDH scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Acid at first glance, apple cider vinegar. Becomes rounder with aeration, softer also A little grenadine. Flagrant lack of expressiveness.
    • Taste
      Dry, astringent, hot.
    • Finish
      A little dried fruit, milk chocolate.

  3. Lafroy scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Light dryness, white currants, grapefruit
      peel, melon, wet sand on the beach, hints of mint, and gooseberry.

      White currant with sugar, hot sweetness, light
      wine, gooseberry, dried grapefruit peel, cream pudding cake with sour cream.
    • Finish
      Very long, hot, creamy, semidry.
