  1. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My starter whisky, excellent value for money.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nice aroma of furniture wood, vanilla, and gummy bear. Lots of orange and orange peel. Yes the nose is light, but is surely not weak in terms of flavor. Lots of spices and ginger as well.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Soft, and very fluidy. Lots of citrus, more oranges. Ginger. Rather weak on the palate.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Very short finish, but it ended very pleasantly. Nothing too special or stand out. Lemon tea and orange peel.

    Well balanced scotch indeed.
    • Nose
      Soooo citric, floral and little bit fragnant nose.
    • Taste
      Fresh taste of vanilla change 

      gradually changes to herbs.
    • Finish
      Clearly wax.

  5. Koning scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    A pretty aromatic and fruity highlander. Improves with water, despite the low strength.
    • Nose
      Quite aromatic. Fruity (peach, apple and citrus fruits), sweet vanilla, some flowers and a bit perfumy, albeit accompanied by a fresh note of mint and washed clothes.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla with a sharp edge (pepper,alcohol), citrus fruits and peaches, garden herbs (parsley,rosemary,oregano) and a bit of honey
      .
    • Finish
      Wood spice, walnut, sweet vanilla. Fresh citrus fruits and a slighly waxy mouth feel
      .

    overall a very smooth, mellow and mature single malt that is easy to drink and only show's weakness on th palate

      very delicate; slight sweetness; citrus notes; lemon; lime; tangerine; apples; pears; peach; dried fruits in the backround; slight spices; hints of oak; overall a good, complex and mellow nose
    • Taste
      very mild/mellow; sweet barley; slight vanilla; (dryed) fruits; nuts; after some time more exotic flavors like coconut; very smooth and mellow although the lack of %vol is noticable
    • Finish
      oak; spices more dominant; hints of chocolate; sweetness in the backround; (bitter) friuts; hints of coffee; nuts; surprisingly intense and long finish
