  1. whiskyclick scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Really beautiful one. Very fruity (tropical fruit), easy and nice.
    The price was around 200€. Recommended if you find this one.

  2. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Little characteristic = low recognition value, but very harmonious and round. Good price-performance ratio.

      Sweet, clearly reserved, a little cellar (musty), light, a little unclean. Very floral, possibly like perfumed.

      Also here rather tender and reserved, but nice and clean, fruity sweetness, slightly spicy.
    • Finish

      Getting dry, clearly astringent, spicier than expected, good length. Complexity is okay.

    SMELL nice tropical fruits, vanilla. Then chocolate, banana, honey, and juicy peach. TASTE again juicy fruit, wax, chocolate and barley. Wonderful bunnah character with soft oak. In the ABGANG mineral, fresh sea breeze, fruit puree, lemon, caramel and grass.

    N: Despite 28 hogged-up years, the whisky it’s incredibly light in colour. Unsurprisingly then, its distillate-led.
    T: Raisin-y throughout with a silky-grainy barley blanket.
    F: Same till the close.
    C: A fine one for the ‘barley shelf’.
