4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.37 points

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Malty not very complex, perfectly drinkable though

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, saturated, absolutely non-spirituous with a lightly pressed aroma and sweet-creamy taste / finish.
    • Nose
      Restrained, wet, the first wave - medicinal herbs, valerian, Thai herring, then the aroma closes, the mineral tones - wet cobblestones, rusty water, a little malt, sandpaper, light creamy notes, lemon.
    • Taste
      Powerful, medicinal with sourness, cream, condensed milk, boiled condensed milk, vanilla, grapefruit grains, cream, slightly astringent oak.
    • Finish
      Sweet-creamy with spices, ginger, cinnamon, lemon peel, a little oak in the background.

    N: Quite a simple one this, bearing in mind all that’s come before. Cereal base, honey, a little citrus and plenty of putty, sponge cake and some sweet [Sauternes?] white wine notes. Sweet cereal>putty in the main. Far easier with water, lemon sponge coming through, a touch of lemonade and sweeter barley sponge.
    T:  More of the same which is just fine. Quite a kick in the head neat. With water, it leads like a cereal-based Lowland-style malt with cereal putty & heather-honey on the turn.
    F: Light savoury-sweet cereal mash. Like on the turn, a cereal putty & heather-honey reprise.
    C: An example of a ‘natural’ one that soon became same-y.Scores a D+
