  3. SAND scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    NOSE: Sweet malt, sweet almonds, marzipan, dried peach, semolina, bourbon vanilla. Needs time. With a few drops of water; fruitier more dried yellow fruits.(88-89p)
    TASTE: Barley juice. And more barley juice. Dry. A bit austere. With a few drops of water; perhaps a little fruitier but not much changes. (86-87p)
    FINISH: Dry, not much wood, just a dry spirit, a slight oiliness. (86p)
    OVERALL: A barley juice driven, slightly austere spirit. Total score 87 points.

  4. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    1 little drop of water breaks the palate open

      Without a drop of water 82 but only one drop and it opens up.
    • Taste
      84 84
      My opinion is it is not very complex in the taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Stays for a while, the bourbon cask with the sweet finish clearly recognisable.

  6. GLD scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    A good old-school whisky that is quite mature, sometimes reminiscent of Springbank 10 and Laphroaig 10, but at the same time quite distinctive and memorable, with the right strength, which is important. Whisky attracts attention with an interesting aroma with an industrial-fruit bouquet and smoky notes, it is somewhat simpler in taste and aftertaste, nevertheless it is very firmly knocked down and well balanced
    • Nose
      86 86
      Open, saturated, fresh red fruits, red apple, wine notes, smoky peat wave, a heated metal instrument, then dried apricots with sourness and sweetness, lemon peel, orange, crumb of warm brown bread; rubbing on the back of your hand - spicy shashlik-smoked spicy notes - unexpectedly
    • Taste
      85 85
      Body: oily, dense, rounded
      Taste: minerality on the palate, a little peat, then sweet malt with a hint of orange zest, rich, but not very diverse
    • Finish
      84 84
      Enveloping, sweet-mineral, slightly smoked, quite long

  8. WhiskyMonster scored this whisky 68 points Member Senior

    Great value and an interesting dram but minimal complexity on the palate
    • Nose
      60 60
      A harsh brininess with notes of coal smoke and creosote - overall unappealing but oddly moreish
    • Taste
      80 80
      Initially soft and sweet peachyness rapidly overrun by the tar-brine swell in a majestic wave. An absence of fruit or other layers.
    • Finish
      65 65
      A lingering dry-bitter charcoal
