  1. xixit scored this whisky 30 points Expert Junior

    If you like cheap beer and lemon, you'll love this.
    I don't.
    Mind you, this was only a 2cl sample from an Xmas calendar provided by Cadenhead's in Odense, Denmark. No idea how the entire bottle would evolve.
    • Nose
      Harsh, fruity, sour. Lots of lemon, cheap beer, a hint of apple, and a grain or two of white sugar.
      With water and time a hint of wood and cheap coffee appears, but it doesn't hide the beer and lemon notes. They just clash instead.
    • Taste
      Basically the same as the nose, lemon, beer, and extremely harsh.
      Water and time makes it even worse, since the harshness becomes overpowering. The coffee doesn't help either, the lemon just clashes with it.
    • Finish
      Thankfully rather short. But when you add water, it unfortunately gets longer.

      Very spirited. Subtle hints of fresh fruits and old wood.
    • Taste

      Sour mash. Very citric and spirited. Absolutely horrific.
    • Finish
      50 50
      Fairly short. Which is at least a positive, because there's nothing positive to say about this dram. Maybe a hint of vanilla.

  3. detachedblue scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Cheesy and salty, little pear drop, sweet young barley husks.
    • Taste
      Strong pear liquor, but still easy drinking, quite floral, minty, a touch of rubber
    • Finish
      Long, mint chocolates

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sweet and spicy.
    • Nose
      Hard toffee sweets, rye bread with soft paprika and fresh cut grass.
    • Taste
      Sten ginger, caramel, vanilla custard and sauvignon blanc.
    • Finish
      Light and spicy with white pepper,lemon and tarragon.
