  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    with water: becomes fresher, fresh fruit notes, citrus, but retains an alcoholic note

    Conclusion: great whisky at a decent price, but for my taste a few older barrels could be mixed in with it
    • Nose
      Butterscotch, toffee, vanilla, dried fruit, ripe fruit (apple), slightly nutty, malt
    • Taste
      nice and not too strong sweetness (honey), vanilla, fruits, nutty, dark wood
    • Finish
      medium length, strong, vanilla, wood, nice light sherry influence, maybe a bit too young at the back

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very intense and fruity whisky. A lot of ripe fruits, some floral notes. The finish being a little less versatile, but overall a good batch for sure.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very fruity, ripe apples, citrus. Quite some alcohol. Some floral notes come through.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very powerful, pepper, intense. Fruity, ripe apples, citrus. Ripe oranges. Full body. Still some floral notes. Later on a bit spicy as well.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still pretty powerful, fruity, ripe oranges, some honey sweetness now. Middle long.

  8. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A solid dram, not overly complex but rather nice.
    • Nose
      Quite some butterscotch and toffee at first. But also a faint note of sour oranges. Then peach. A layer of honey, followed by vanilla. It’s a little restrained, but water helps to open it up. It becomes fruitier and creamier.
    • Taste
      A rather heavy alcohol punch. Then I get some honey and oranges. A citric note as well. Blueberries. Vanilla and caramel fudge. Red chilli peppers. A few drops of water makes it more friendly and creamier but the chilli peppers are still there. I also get almonds now.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and stingy peppery. Mocha and almonds.

    Too much butterscotch for my taste
    • Nose
      81 81
      Lots of butterscotch, vanilla, little toffee, quince, citric, peach, caramel, jam, condensed milk
    • Taste
      82 82
      Punchy, little sweetness, citric, more quince, green and yellow fruits, more butterscotch
    • Finish
      80 80
      Long, burning, grapefruit, a tad bitter
