    Despite the excellent nose, it is a lime juice that taste a little like plastic.

      First impression being very floral. This whisky opened with rosé, then some butterscotch, then lot of wine gums. Adorable. It became more sugary and creamy with time, and showed lot of vanilla. Juicy green grape also appeared, mixed with musky wood scent, and stewed plume. Excellent!

      Sweetened lime juice, and oaky flavour... well, unfortunately this was it.

      Lingering fruit juice, and plastic, makes the aftertaste rather rubbery. Sad.

    Sehr floral, süß und milder Whisky. Gefällt mir gut, leicht zu trinken.

    Great nose, getting even better with few drops of water.

    Super easy sipper. Lots of honey or syrupy notes. I rated this really high because the neck pour was so smooth. I thought it would only get better. But alas, this one got too tepid. Still a great sipper. Glad I got it but there is no need to buy again.

    Good nose and palate. The finish is perhaps a bit too soft for my pleasure

    strange at first, the nose promised something, but then defused it ... after standing a little longer it became better, albeit strong, but quite tasty!

    A totally chuggable, easy-drinking whisky. Clean and lovely sherry notes. At the risk of sounding like a pompous arse, I would use a bottle like this as a palate cleanser prior to my real tastings. This is relatively inexpensive, easy to calibrate, and delicious.
