    Very nice dram, does all the basic stuff really well. No bells and whistles, but it really delivers.

      Lemon, vanilla, dried fruits, toffee, honey, dried herbs, light acetone, cream, overall nice "cake" nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Easy on the palate, good dose of cane sugar, simple sweetness, light oak, good amount of barley, toffee, dried fruits, dates, a bit of mint. Second chew gets a bit more spicy, peppery, and also brings vanilla cream as well as lemon oil. Really quite good. On the third chew it gets drier, with slight leather notes, light tobacco leaves, a bit of fresh grass, dried herbs, some liquorice, vague hint of smoke. Really well made as easy drinkers go.

      Light, some spices, drier, but still some sweetness and toffee. Grassy notes, tobacco leaves, dried herbs, and cream.

    "It is a very civil, accessible, perfect example of a modern, contemporary scotch single malt whisky which is getting it right."

    Acquired for 26 euros. 46% not colored, ncf. There is not much you can do wrong. Still not expecting much.
    Surprised positively.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Subtle sherry notes, the typical citrus-like Arranch character as well as typical vanilla and caramel notes from Bourbon barrels.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Smooth, sweet, very pleasant.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Spicy, woody, medium length.
