  1. Harvey scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Most positive surprise of 2018, out of core range whiskies. Sweet and delicious , but quite short finish, 40%

  2. marmeladow scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A round, dangerously tasty, creamy all-day dram with no rough edges, but tasty and inexpensive
    • Nose
      Sweetness with vanilla and honey; Fruits (apple, pear, grapes) some heather, next to it some oak with spiciness
    • Taste
      silky mouthfeel, very pleasant. The 40% ABV carry it sufficiently. Otherwise everything that the nose already offered.
    • Finish
      just medium long, becoming drier and fading, but otherwise many echoes of what nose and palate offered

  6. Caballa scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    It is an easy, smooth and fruity whisky, a classic whisky in every house.
    • Nose
      Soft aromas of pear, heather and resin, accompanied by notes of honey and dried fruit.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied, balanced, silky and fresh.
    • Finish
      Dry aftertaste with lingering notes of sweet smoke.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N- Fresh ripe peach, fruit punch with abundance of zesty lemonade followed by oat cookies, maltose that developed to leafy ad floral with whiff of nuttiness. Not holding up long here but the initial burst of fruitiness were quite lovely. (86/20)

    P- Malt at heart letting the toasted oak that drawn out the liquorice, underlay with gummy fruits with malt, cereal, honey and charming berries. (87/21)

    F- Lasted with length, clean, dry with citrus of lemon squeeze, malty and warm spices. Gingery, fresh pine and eucalyptus. Finely spicy. (87/21)

    B/B- 87/21 Far better than expected. Rounded and well filled core range.

    Weighted Rate- 83pt
