  1. koensieben622 scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    A nice simple whisky but I find the 12y better in this price-range. Never had the ‘old’ 10y so cant compare.

    Easy going whisky for a nice evening with friends

      Chocolate, oak, vanilla, chocolate, little harsch and alcoholic.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Smooth, vanilla, lots of oak, maybe too much, touch of caramel, not very complex but nice. Little bit of (red?) pepper.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Quite short, peppery.

    Pleasant fruity smell, mild taste. The finish is unfortunately a bit short. Beginners whisky with adequate PLV.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Nose launches very sweet, sweetened lemon, orange oil, lots of vanilla, fresh juicy wood - very direct - smells suspiciously of delicious Virginoak, slightly floral, cotton candy, strawberries - really good for his class and not too weak despite 40%
    • Taste
      82 82
      starts fruity, sweet, melon, lemon, vanilla cream - then falls off a bit mineral, herbal woody notes, in the background sherry with dried fruit - seems a bit "dirty" with lacks the clear line - harmony
    • Finish
      83 83
      for 40% really not bad, warm, sweet, ginger, pepper, oatmeal cookies, nothing burns but for me as a CS friend a little too unsettling - for the target group sure top with 2 large swallows, he then also medium length on the palate
