    This is an ok dram. But there's much more interesting whisky in this price range between 25 and 35 €.

      No obvious faults. Oak wood, slightly spicy, a bit of sweetness and quite unspectacular. Not much to discover here.

      Sweet and spicy. A bit too much pepper and a bit of banana maybe. Otherwise rather shallow.

      Short, a bit too pronounced on the wood. Not very interesting but ok.

    Well, at 40% ABv they should have known this would be an underpar bottle.... A pedestrian showing, not bad, not godd, just average

    LIght on the nose, american wood clearly on the influence, has a banana puree side to it that sokmehwat saves the glass, other than that, a mostly flat product....

    one of the worst bottles i have ever had ...
    usually a great distillery but a very bad choice with this one...

    Origin good
    • Nose
      Creamy , floral malted barley with hints of vanilla that
      welcome the arrival of mixed summer fruits.
    • Taste
      Bananas, pineapple, pears and boiled sweets merge with a delicious mix of soft spice.
    • Finish
      Floral with pear-drop sweetness.
