  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Whisky is average for me. Not too good, but not too bad either. Honestly, I was expecting something more for a 12 year old. This watered-down smell for me makes a bad impression, which later cannot (IMHO) catch up. I was expecting something more .... Maybe today is not the time when I should try it. He bought it, he did not buy it, it is quite appropriate to give it a chance. ????
    • Nose
      very delicate, even watery, slightly fruity, green apple
    • Taste
      candy, quite peppery, a bit of peach
    • Finish
      short, caramel, oak shavings, chili at the end

  2. mrmalty scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    A non offensive but simpler dram. Not much complexity and a little lighter on the body.

  3. pVs scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    stable - tasty, without revelations, but quite fruity
    • Nose
      citruses, apricot, caramel, sourness, flowers
    • Taste
      wood, cigars, tobacco
    • Finish
      sweet enough

  4. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    An uncomplicated beginner's whisky without corners and edges for a very moderate price. You can also try something like that, especially in times when prices only seem to know the way up.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Fruity, malty and with a good dose of vanilla. There are yellow aromas, which are very restrained. Nothing stings, nothing disturbs, nothing stands out.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very soft and fruity with lots of vanilla and malt. Slight herbal notes, some brioche, a little honey and caramel. Again, yellow fruits dominate without any flaws in the taste. The palate is flattered and the whisky is once again recommended as Easy Dram or perfect beginner.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Short to medium length with fruit and sweetness on the palate. Again, error-free and easily accessible.

  5. coldsun scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Strongly fruity and fresh, orange, mandarin, biscuit, barley malt, cake, new wood
