  1. Syleo scored this whisky 59 points Expert Junior

    EN: The nose is not so bad at the beginning, as a bit too "brandy-like". The other impressions, however, remain below average and are overall disappointing. DE:

    • Nose
      EN: Apple juice with a dash, in the direction of apple-grain liquer, not quite as sweet, but almost. Brown sugar and some vanilla, as well as some summery flowers, maybe hyacinth. DE:

    • Taste
      EN: Quite alcoholic and phenolic, like a brandy or schnapps, so with pronounced wood and bitter smells like burned barley. DE:
      Alcoholic and phenolic, like a brandy, but with clear wood and bitter smells like burned barley.
    • Finish
      EN:
      The finish is still leaking and is unpleasantly noticeable. DE:
      The finish is thin overall and the wood and cardboard are uncomfortable, some of the flowers from the Nosing are still present.

    Expectations were low, but they were met. Sure, this is not a grand malt – far from it – but in the end, this only costs around 25 EUR, which means value for money. Their new products, simply dubbed The Spey, are much, much better. Thanks, Pat.
    • Nose
      I get some vanilla custard, semoule, breakfast grains and nuts on the nose. Hint of peach and banana. Actually, this is not half bad. Not earthshattering, but nothing wrong with it either.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is honey sweet. Bar some pepper, I get only crystal sugar, vanilla and caramel. Pears? Some banana again. Not a big body, though.
    • Finish
      The finish is short and sweet.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    A medium and soft body. Nothing special .
    • Nose
      Flowery,Jasmine. Some passion fruit. Not complex.
    • Taste
      Cashew nuts and a sweetish dried grass  note that recalls  great Scotch whiskies of the past. Cookies. Toasted marshmallows .
    • Finish
      Faintly kirsch-like, dry fruitiness. A bit abrupt.  Short aftertaste.

  4. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I could not discover the much-quoted peat note ... Overall but a small, nice whisky for little money.
    • Nose
      Smells somehow young & very easy spritig. We get slightly woody over time, then softer, malty and a little bit sweet. With water the wood scent becomes stronger, the malt tone deeper, and a slight resinousness is added.
    • Taste
      Clear, pure, firm are the cornerstones of the mouthfeel in this case. The taste itself is in some ways creamy, sweet and very pleasant - better than the nose may expect. But here, too, shows the woody tone of the nose. At the end whin again slightly spritig & sharp. With water a pleasant light sweetness, some malt & young (somehow "immature") wood.
    • Finish
      Creamy slightly on the finish; with malt & a little sweetie. Reminiscent of liquorice by adding water. With some malt and a slightly bitter taste. Overall short finish.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 69 points Specialist

    A bit disapointing, in the sense that it's got no caracter.

    OK, it's young, but I've tasted younger than this that actually is both good and interesting.

    If someone had told me it was a blend, I would have said "fair" but as a Highland Single... nah...

    On the positive side, it's priced accordingly, but still I would advise to put that cash into something more exciting.
