      Bitter, still lemony and some pepper (which comes as a surprise).

  5. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very nice drinking whisky for little money, full-bodied and classic Speyside alignment with sherry-like fruit flavors
    • Nose

      Fruity and elegant, full sweetness
    • Taste
      86 86
      Not very complex, but nice and round and full-bodied. Bright tropical fruits like pineapple.

      Medium length, slightly dry,

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Grappa, barley malt, citruses, honey, vanilla, citruses, roasted barley malt. Slightly bitter cut with notes of zesty spices. Tasty but quite simple.

  8. Coldorak scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Color is Champagne.

    This whisky is a bit unbalanced. It’s not a bad whisky, mind you, but the citrus is too much on the front, be it lemon or grapefruit, and it doesn’t leave enough space for the rest. At least the price is really honest for an aged statement.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Lots of lemon, fudge, vanilla, almonds, bananas, and a floral side I could not pinpoint (I need to nose my garden more). And maybe a sniff of apples.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Citrusy at first, it gets bitter on mid-palate with grapefruit and green apples. The mouthfeel gets oily. Pepper, malt and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The finish has a good length and is citrusy and slightly oaky, the citrus staying quite a bit on the tongue.
