  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A total disappointment: flat, oaky and bitterish whisky without any complexity or peasant sides. Probably it failed due to the unsuccessful selection of the cask. Not recommended for purchase especially for the asked price.
    • Nose
      Tad spirituous, green apples, sour orchard berries (red currants), rhubarb, dusty barley, chalky notes, wet wood, lemon zest. Water doesn’t make a noticeable influence on the nose.
    • Taste
      Rather peppery, with a good dose of oaky bitterness, malty, tad chalky. With water it gets sweeter, with lemons and apple mash notes, some nutmeg and porridge.
    • Finish
      Short, bitterish, malty, oaky, with notes of horseradish and apple seeds.

  3. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately, the oppressive sweetness whitewashes many other possible taste nuances, the alcohol is very well integrated so that is a very dangerous dram that is only too easy to sniff away.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fresh green fruits, apples, pears, somewhat herbaceous, very round and elegant.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Super sweet, not at all sherry-typical, cinnamon and ginger just penetrate the waves of sweetness.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Relatively long but extremely under-complex, except for the sweetness and the long-lasting warmth is unfortunately not very much.
