  1. karloff scored this whisky 75 points Specialist

    This is alright actually, not loads going on and a little boring but it's steady. It's something you would pour yourself whilst watching a film and not give it much thought, yet it's still going down easy.
    • Nose
      75 75
      I don't know what it is with me and the nose of single grain whisky.
      I always find them difficult to fathom out.
      This is no exception.
      Butter and marmalade on white bread.
      Nothing else jumps out.
    • Taste
      80 80
      And as always the taste is something else.
      Again it is quite buttery and sweet and spicy.
      More fruit coming through like lemon, golden delicious apple, kiwi and dried banana.
    • Finish
      70 70
      A medium finish that is quite dry and slightly bitter.
      This I don't mind at all as long as there is other stuff going on to back it up but nothing here, it's dry, bitter then dead.

  2. SeWuWhisky scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Appearance: pale yellow
    Nose: herbs, fruit, cinnamon, coconut, sweet and a hint of marzipan or almond
    Mouthfeel: Excellent, very elegant and pleasant
    Flavor: oak, sweetness, again cinnamon, slightly spicy, with coconut and marzipan
    Finish: medium-long, sweet, a little fruity and a little oak. But rather poor.

    A harmonious painting. Not exciting but very good craftsmanship!
