  1. Coldorak scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This is a nice dram, tasty, and good value at the German price. I wouldn’t pay almost 60€ for it, though. A bit too woody unfortunately.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nail polish remover appears at first but is soon joined by vanilla. Fruits notes of pear and plum and some spices, with cinnamon. There is also an herbal side, with wet grass.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The arrival is sweet and slightly spicy. Cracked pepper and cinnamon for the spices side, and citrus. Oak is a bit too much present.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is warm, on oak and dark chocolate.

  8. TsiAI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Smell: diluted Baileys, wooden barrel, cream toast, fresh and sweet red berries, lemon zest, vanilla, dry spices. Taste: sweet and sour, honey grapefruit tea, raspberry ice cream, coke, wood chips, sugar, rat Tail grass, dried flowers, cream fruit cake.
    Overall: 83-84/100, it tastes good from the point of view of easy drinking. It has an unusually relaxing and pleasant feeling. The wine body is very light and watery, so the whole is slim, suitable for all times when you don't want to drink high. .

  11. MaroFF scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Another top whiskey from Ireland. Well-balanced, saturated with fruity sweetness and jam, with a delicate bitterness in the background. The alcohol is completely imperceptible. There is also a piece of good, dark chocolate in it, which makes the whiskey delicious in taste and finish as an addition to the dessert.
    I recommend ????
