  2. Myke scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    uncomplicated entry-level whisky with a penchant for nuttiness, definitely enjoyable - 'EveryDayDram' -
    PLV: very fair.
    [the more he can breathe, the better he gets; reminds a little of the Macallans, who need a little air to breathe after opening so that they can develop properly) - now even an 'EveryDayDram' that is easy to drink. 72pt -> 75pt]

      alcohol at first, but it evaporates quickly. Honey, malt, some spices, fruity (light); in between I still smell this phenolic solvent (nail polish remover). If the whisky stands a little, the phenolic flies away and more fruits come through. Very light pear.
      [--- Nachtasting: Significantly more nut flavors, especially walnut flavor and (a little less) hazelnut. I no longer have the phenolic in my nose.]

      Spicy oak initially sharp, but quickly subsides. Oily, nutty (walnut). Malty, tw. very malty. Something floral with the second and third sip. Somehow I miss a sweetness, there is some fruit. You notice the "youthful" character.

      Medium-long finish: malty (very malty) and slightly oily. Oak on the palate, which leads to a slightly bitter finish; the bitter lasts a long time (I don't like it that way).
      [--- Nachtasting: here the picture has also improved; the bitterness is no longer so pronounced.]
