4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.10 points
- Apples on the nose, a bit of wood, it's a sweet whisky, pretty oily. The aftertaste has some spices in it and is medium long. Main association is apple juice with spices. It's a good whisky for the price.
- A golden treasure,one of my favorite!
Fresh and malty,fresh fruits,yellow pear,a little yeasty and floral notes,grassy and honey,vanilla ice cream.
Sweet and mellow,malty and spicy,a little sweet,barley sugar,ginger,honey.Good balance!
Medium long and spicy,a little pineapple and pear,beeswax.Maybe a hint of smoke.
- A rock-solid whisky for intermediate drinkers and an excellent choice for beginners until one or the other newbie might raise the bar.
Quite fruity, I would say above average. A very light smoke can be found, but only relatively at the beginning. It flies quickly. Despite the age, a sweet and fresh meadow and other bright fruits. If you give it a little time, the age comes to the fore.
More on the sweet side, but this is partly offset by the weight and flavor.
Remains for a long time and is pleasantly clumsy down the throat.
- This is a fine, pleasant whisky, rather easy going, maybe on the edge of being overly sweet even to my personal taste, but that subtle smoke counterparts that nicely. All in all this might be a bit of an overlooked whisky by the seasoned enthusiasts (I for one hadn’t bought a bottle in years, but coming back to it, I have to say this was a pleasant revisit) but any ‘casual whisky drinker’ will very likely enjoy this one.
a burst of honey and oranges with heather, botanicals and herbal notes. We’re almost into liqueur territory here! If you give it some time to ease down, there’s vanilla, sweet pears and apples with a very distant and subtle hint (more of a suggestion even) of smoke at the back.
very citrus-y (oranges, orange peel and even orange marmalade) with again very present honey and heather notes, vanilla … sweet and with a somewhat dry texture. There is a touch of oak here as well, and the shy and subtle smoky note hiding behind it all slowly yet surely becomes more obvious (wouldn’t go as far as saying prevalent), giving the whole a nice and pleasant balance.
Not saying it’s very short, but it’s definitely not very long either. Dry (even the citrus note turns into a dried oranges sensation) ending on that smoky note.
