22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.96 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Not really an enjoyable whisky. Especially the palate is much too bitter to my taste.
    • Nose
      Lots of cucumber. Very cardboardy as well. Light sweetness. Cooked vegetables? Menthol. A strange nose.
    • Taste
      Oaky and peppery sharpness. Later on more bitterness. Quite smooth.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dryness. Mint and more bitterness. Not very complex.

  2. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    18 years? The number is then probably also an equivalent to the number of Fassnutzungen.
    • Nose
      Subtle and unobtrusive. Pear, some apple and orange, vanilla. Behind it a little caramel and if you like, you can guess a malty-oak-sweet note.
    • Taste
      First bittersweet oak, then vanilla, a little pear, orange, nuts and a little espresso.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, very short. Pear, espresso, nut.

  3. Malthead19 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    - no whisky for everyone
    - very disappointing for the 18 y.
    - very thin in taste
    • Nose
      smells very flat but not unpleasant, like a 12 year old blend, no character traits or special aromas recognizable, fruit brandy or pear
    • Taste
      a lot of old oak, but unfortunately the bubbly character cannot be put down, very disappointing despite the older age
    • Finish
      short and painless,
      There is no echo

  8. schengel10 scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Not expensive- a single malt- 18 years old ... but ...
    ... now tasted again in Feb 2021 ... unfortunately no new findings ...
    • Nose
      flat aromas, fruit schnapps aromas, sweet pears, apples, rum aromas (?), clearly malt;
    • Taste
      Sweetness, pears, oranges, a musty old oak tree, bitter, peppery, hot, unbalanced, alcoholic - you never guess the 18 years ...
    • Finish
      short, simple finish, no aftertaste;

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Good, soft whisky, without too much character, but good for sipping.
